Posh Pastels: Video Technique Tutorial 4, Chalk Grid

UPDATED: 5/17/2021 – This technique is even older now (9 years later!) but the project is still a great way to use Stampin Chalks, which are now included again 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!


Wow, hard to believe that we’re at the 4th tutorial already. I just want to quickly clarify about the Stampin’ Pastels, since I’ve received quite a few questions, most commonly, “what are those Stampin’ Pastel thingies?”

Good question! First of all, the Stampin’ Pastel Thingies aren’t actually ‘thingies’, just Stampin’ Pastels. But on to more informative answers, I usually explain that the Stampin’ Pastels are similar to chalks, except they have a little more oil to them than regular chalks. This helps them to stick to cardstock better, plus gives a little bit nicer depth of color than a generic crafty chalk.

So hopefully that might help a bit–if you have more questions, keep them coming!
