Faux Chalkboard Stamping
Love and Laughter Floral
This technique has been around for a little while, ever since the whole chalkboard craze started. But I'm going to show you just how easy it really is!
Start with black cardstock cut to size. 
Using Versamark ink, stamp Love and Laughterthen emboss with white embossing powder.
I used a Spectrum Noir marker to color in the words.
I then used Nuvo Crystal Drops to add color to the petals and leaves.
Then, simply take a makeup sponge and rub it on a piece of chalk.
Pounce onto the black cardstock adding the chalky film.
I then added some cutouts to the corners to frame the piece.

Happy Planner Page
Coffee Barcode (SD765) & Coffee Kitty (SD735)
I simply stamped that adorable Coffee Kitty on the corner of my planner with Versamark.
I then embossed with black embossing powder and colored with Spectrum Noir markers.
The Coffee Barcode was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black.
Note on the upper right, I used Coffee Gauge (SD703).

Welcome Sweet Baby
Welcome Sweet Baby
I cut out the step card using my Silhouette Cameo. 
I then added some pink floral cardstock to the sides and bottom, along with some sparkly adhesive ribbon and buttons.
The booties image was stamped twice: once on the card base and again on a separate piece, which was then trimmed out.
The trimmed booties were then foam-taped to the base image.
I stamped two of the sentiments from the set, Welcome Sweet Baby.
The Welcome piece was diecut and matted with some white cardstock.
I wrapped a pink ribbon around the corner and adhered it to the card.
On the inside, I stamped the third sentiment from the set.

I am absolutely IN LOVE with this stamp!!! It is such a wonderful graphic, that I didn't even do much to it. It's so cute it just shines all on it's own!  I simply stamped Buddies on some brown cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I trimmed it down and adhered it to the kraft card base with some foam tape. The sentiment is from the set Dog Quotes (S137). This will make a great masculine birthday card!

Hope you are enjoying the "hop"! Your next stop will be the wonderfully clever Beth Norman.  Here is the complete line-up in case you missed someone:
