This past weekend I got to spend some time with Kelley and husband, Rick, in Amish country. You wouldn’t believe how many “chalkboard” things we saw! These beautiful chalkboard singles will make your Christmas card making a snap!

This is Glory to God

I used one of the leaf dies from the custom Fall Leaves and Acorn dies and tucked them in the custom Fancy Foliage! Also, tucked behind the image is a custom Decorative Corners die.

This is Prince of Peace

Gold mirror paper for the Fancy Foliage, and a gold leafing pen for the scrollwork embossing folder background. Pretty quick and simple but looks like you took hours!

Wow these are all incredible! I absolutely adore the squirrel and all of the elements you used are just perfect. I'm loving the chalkboard stamps and how they don't need a whole lot of extra embellishing to make a truly fabulous card.

Cathymac said...

I love your red squirrel and the beautiful design of the first card, Dawn! The raffia and acorns tie all the elements together beautifully!..Your chalkboard cards are gorgeous and so elegant! The foliage and flowers highlight the verses perfectly! You just keep pumping out the most beautiful creations! Hugs!

Sabrina said...

Beautiful, Dawn!! Love the second one with your beautiful floral spray and the lovely chalkboard sentiment. But the first one has to be my favourite. I really like that you coloured him as a red squirrel :D. It's a long time since I've seen one - the grey squirrels took over once they arrived on the scene here. The raffia and acorn treatment finishes it off to perfection.

Your cards are just Beautiful, love the one with the golden accents, your squirrel is just great, love the coloring and the flower arrangement is just lovely on the other one.
Just to let you know I had a pop up come up when I clicked on the link from ODBD stating that you had a link to a malicious software on your blog.

Kelley said...

AWESOME!! SO much love these!!! The chalkboard in gold is so unique!! Love it!

Dawn I LOVE all of your work! You make it look so easy!!
My question is since I am starting to make cards instead of scrapbooking what kind of machines will I need? I already know that I am getting a Silhouette but it seems like I will still need a die cutting machine also especially for using folders to emboss my cards?? Could you tell me your favorites and give me some advice?! I am lost!
Thank You so much Dawn! Your crafting makes me happy everytime that I look at it!
