Blog Hop Day #1

Welcome to Chalk-Ah-lot cafe three day blog hop. If you haven't heard the latest buzz I'm here to tell you about it. Powdered chalk is the new medium to paint in images, make cool backgrounds, add that special sparkle to your projects and so much more. I LOVE using these chalks for so many of my projects and you could be the lucky winner of a chalk set per DT member. Be sure to visit and comment on each DT members blog and the Chalk-Ah-Lot Cafe blog  for inspiration and a chance to win.


For my card I used the powdered chalk on the scalloped circle combined with paint and then brushed on with a stipple brush. You can see a bit of streaking with the chalk which is a fun feature in some of the colors. I then waited for the chalk to completely dry and stamped the sun with distressing ink.
The embossing folder is by Sizzix with cardstock by Recollections. Die cuts are from Spellbinders and Stampin Up.


 The stamps are from our sister company Stamp N Plus Scrap N where you can find a variety of stamps. Right now under clearance you can get the following: 


Stamp N Plus Scrap N offers 15 handcrafted unmounted rubber stamps on double sticky cushion for wood mounting in a 6in by 9in manila envelope these stamps are old stock in good shape aprox retail value of $40 to $50. The only thing they may need is trimming. 15 images for Five Dollars or 45 images for Twelve Dollars WOW!!!!!
 We cannot guarantee there won't be any doubles if multiple envelopes are purchased as a bunch of images were thrown in a bin and then stuffed in envelopes. No doubles in individual envelopes.

Then if that wasn't enough, the Powdered Chalk Challenge Special is still going on where you can purchase 4 powdered chalks for $6.00 plus S and H. An exceptional value and an offer you should not let pass you by.

So now that you have stopped here from Barbara's blog head on over to Jennifer's blog. Be sure to leave a comment at each blog for your chance to win a set of chalks. If you get lost you can always go back to the Chalk-Ah-Lot Cafe where you should also leave a comment.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look. Enjoy the hop.
