Chalkboard Cards with Crinkle Ribbon and a Winner

Happy Friday Everyone!

Today is my 3 Girl JAM day and I am sharing these fabulous chalkboard cards. I have been admiring them for weeks! I have to give a BIG shout-out to Gwen at This and That because she was the one that motivated me to follow through and make them. We chatted about the designs and I immediately went shopping searching for the right chalk pencils. After numerous stops I found the last pack at Hobby Lobby on clearance!

Here is my DT project...
Creating the background was super easy and fun (the most difficult part was choosing the right stamp)! The 3 Girl JAM crinkle ribbon coordinates with a variety of pattern papers. 

I started with black card stock and my embossing buddy to add the white powder look. Creating the borders needed to be unique just like each stamped shape. I used a white gel pen to add doodling around the edges.

Coordinating ribbon (Lemon-Lime and Grey-Gray from the new LG bundle and Iris from the Spring Flowers bundle) and brads tie the colors together. A few pink flowers (card below) are perfect for all the Azaleas blooming.

  5. Georgianna, thise are absolutely beautiful!!!


  6. What did you use to cut the sun shape? Is is a cricut cartridge (which one) or a cuttlebug style die? Thanks for posting these. I love them and would love any additional instructions/tips you have for do the chalkboard cards. They are so neat I want to run home and make some! Tricia

    1. The starburst was cut from Accent Essentials Cricut cartridge (p. 40). I used an old white stamp pad by Studio G (one of the $1.00 stamps pads from Michaels). It gave a powder/distressed look rather than being a bright white. If you want to chat more just send me a message (coachfans at cox dot net).

  7. Also, out of curiosity which "perfect" chalk pencils did you use? I have the pens that don't wipe off unless you use water, but I didn't know they had pencils!

    1. The chalk pencils are by General's Pencil Company. They are found in the drawing section. You can also find them at Amazon.


  8. Absolutely GORGEOUS!! Congrats to the winner!!
    Have a wonderful day,

  11. Hi Goergian, thank you for stopping by my little corner of the internet. I am now a follower of yours and love your blog as well as your projects. Have a great day.

  12. Your cards are just wonderful, Georgiana! ILove those little chalkboards and all your pretty details.Thank you so much for your kind comments on my blog. It was so nice of you to take the time to visit AND comment.

  13. Oh WOW! They ALL look FABULOUS! I bought some Chalkboard Vinyl for a project I want to make and chalkboard pens.... but haven't had time to make it yet.... Hopefully soon... I've had the stuff for awhile now but other projects keep popping up! HA! :o)


  14. I just love your Chalkboard style cards!! Fabulous :0)

  15. What gorgeous cards! I like that your cards are pretty and feminine. It seems a lot of people make the chalkboard look on grungy cards and I like to see that it doesn't have to be that way.


Thank you for stopping by and leaving a comment. I am looking forward to visiting you!
