{TSG} Apple of My Eye



 Jessica and Tobi have been hard at work creating an AMAZING new set for us, Chalkboard Memories. If you are familiar with the VERY popular Chalkboard Technique, this set was created for that particular style!! It is full of SUPER cute images, and FABULOUS sayings…and the chalkboard itself? Fantastic!



I stamped my sentiment onto an MFT apple die cut(an apple chalkboard would be soooo fun, dontcha think?) in SU's white craft ink and embossed with white EP. I then used my finger and the white ink to add some smudges of chalk dust. The DP and other elements (button, bird card) are October Afternoon, CS is Stampin' Up. Not sure what brand the alphabet twill is. I added some Distress ink around the edges of my papers for that vintage look! I really love the way this card turned out, even though I seem to struggle with stamp images that don't require colouring ;)



Chalkboard Memories is a 4x8 set that includes a total of 18 stamps and will sell for $18.00 . The new stamps will be available on Saturday, April 27th at 11pm.

Would you like to win the new stamp set? Here is what you need to do- visit the Trendsetter’s blogs that are participating in each of the blog hop challenges below and comment on their creations as you go.
