UPDATED: 5/17/2021 – This technique is an oldie but goodie (11 years later!) and this project is still a great way to use Stampin Chalks, which are now included again (now called Soft Pastels) after a loooong hiatus in the 2021-2022 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog. Be sure to check out the supply list for an updated Soft Pastels project!
Have you seen the new Awash With Flowers stamp set yet?
You basically use your Stampin’ Pastels (May 2021 Update – try the new Soft Pastels in place of the old Stampin Pastels) with a Sponge Dauber (or cotton ball) to add color splotches all over the white background cardstock. Then use a ruler and the eraser from the Stampin’ Pastels to erase a lines to make the grid.
Isn’t it the COOLEST?! I used it here as a background for my Awash with Flowers cut-outs.
This is a fabulous stamp set for using with the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig (if you’re a stamper who just *needs* to line things up perfectly). If you haven’t used one before, be sure to check out my “how-to” video on using the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig!
And in case you’re wondering about the greeting, the inside is a ‘belated birthday’ message. I have to admit that I need *way* too many belated birthday cards 😉
We’re making this card at Stamp Club this week–be sure to let me know if you’d like to join us on Wednesday evening!
