Sneaky Peek week: day 2 "Sassy Birthday"


Hi there, all! Very excited to bring you another card for Sneaky Peek Week at The Cat's Pajamas!  All the stamps from this new release will be available for purchase Monday night at midnight EST. When I saw this next set, I almost drooled, it was just too cute. the graphic style is so popular right now, and not only do I love the look, I love the sentiments, too! It's called "Sassy Birthday."





These stamps marry very well with the chalkboard technique that is popular right now. I have done a few chalkboard things, but just didn't feel I had the "right" stamps to make it work well. These are perfect! I heat embossed the white image on black cardstock, after that was done I actually rubbed a bit of white chalk over the image with my finger. I also used my new favorite dies that are also coming with this release the Framed Up CutUps.
I had just gotten these new papers from My Mind's Eye. they had a huge display of this chalkboard line at CHA, super cute! The paper with the frames was such a cute way to repeat the chalkboard and frame elements of the card.


I added some cool buttons, and some black Divine Twine as accents on the card.


And that is all for me today! Hope you will check out what my other DT buds have up their sleeves with this cute set! :)

Have a wonderful day!
Hugs, Noelle

That paper goes purrfectly with this set! So cute! Love that you used actual chalk too for the chalkboard look. Where does one purchase chalk these days? Also, did you get your ATCs? I want to make sure....
