February Stamp to the MAX Blog Hop

Happy February! It's time for another Stamp to the MAX blog hop! This month we're featuring projects all about LOVE!  We hope you are inspired! You may have arrived from Stephanie's blog, you may be a regular reader :), or maybe you just stumbled here by accident! However you found me, I'm glad you're here! I am stop #7 on the blog hop, and I created a card for you today!

I have seen the Chalkboard Technique all over the place lately, so I decided to give it a try.  I started out by embossing the Pool Party card stock with the Framed Tulips embossing folder.  Then I measured inside the frame for the chalkboard piece which is just a piece of Basic Black card stock.  I heat-embossed the sentiment.  Then I adhered my banners which were stamped with the Hearts a Flutter stamp set to the White Baker's twine with glue dots.  Don't recognize the small banners?  It's the rounded banner from Hearts a Flutter that I die-cut with the Bitty Banner framelits. I just love that pattern!  After I adhered the banner, I took a sponge dauber and added some 'eraser marks' with Whisper White craft ink.  Then I adhered my chalkboard to a card base of Raspberry Ripple. It really was quite easy, and I think it looks so cute! 

I hope you enjoyed my stop on this month's hop.  For more ideas, continue on to Max's blog.
