A Clean Slate

Over at The Paper Players this week there is a fun challenge called A Clean Slate.  It is the beginning of a new year and time for many of us to start out with a clean slate.

This challenge, however, is asking us to use the chalkboard technique in a project.  So clever!

Well, sometimes I think I take instruction too literally, and my project went white on black and I just could not stop!

I used the new framelits set from Stampin' Up called Banners Framelits  to cut some banners that had been stamped with stamps from SU Gorgeous Grunge and the chevron pateern is a stamp from Oh, Hello.

The sentiment is from SU Really Good Greetings. I used SU White Baker's Twine, a button from SU's Neutral Collection and did some sponging on just about every edge to give it that chalkboard look.


  1. Very pretty, Diane! I really like the diversity in the banners. Thanks for playing with The Paper Players!

  2. Great card, Diane. Very dramatic and wonderful with all those banners!

  3. I love the way you did the banners and the chalkboard technique. Beautiful card.
