MIM Chalk, Stamps and an Impression Plate



Hello friends! Happy Saturday to you ; )  Here is a card I created for the Papertrey Ink - Make It Monday challenge : ) You can see Melissa Phillips great video HERE.  Melissa has challenged us to us to emboss on card stock then chalk over the texture that is on the cs and finally stamp over that.  It is easy and I quite like the results!

I do not have a PTI embossing plate so I embossed my cs using the PTI Hearts Cover Plate.  I chalked with some "Basic Brights" chalk by Pebbles, Inc. and then stamped my flower images and sentiment  from PTI's Doodlie-Do stamp set. 



Next I cut and attached a cool drink of summer sunshine from an old old Sizzlits die called Lemonade which I also chalked : )

I tried this technique three times - once using browns and a pumpkin die cut but that one just looks dirty LOL so here are two similar yet different cards for this challenge : ) There is still time to enter the PTI Make It Monday challenge : ) be sure to check out the sensational work of others who joined in this challenge there are a LOT of amazing takes on this challenge you are sure to enjoy.



These two cards bring my total cards completed to 71 : ) with only 25 days left in my challenge to create 100 cards in 100 days.  I'm offering some yummy BLOG CANDY! For a chance to win simply leave a comment on this post.  See all the deets mark my HERE.

Have a wonderful day!

Very cool (:-) lemonade die, Patti! Great summery colors on your chalked Hearts Cover Plate...
I like the Doodlie-Do stamps on both too. Yellow CS is my fave happy color :-)

Great card, Patti! I love your colors on the yellow background. I also, being a Kansas girl, love the sunflower on the second one!
Thanks for your kind comment on my blog! You made me snicker, I don't think Melissa needs to watch her back ;)
Thanks for sharing

HI Patti, this is fabulous...love those 'sherbert'colours. I haven't used my chalks in ages, think I should dig them out! Great technique with the embossing, hugs Carole Z X

Hi Patti, I live in Kenosha. I have met so many talented crafters from all over, but you are the first one from Wi. So glad to hear from you. I now follow your blog. I have only had a blog for almost two years, but have been stamping for a lot longer. Challenges are great and I love to do them now that I am retired and have the time.
I'm sure I will be seeing you around. My uncle had a vacation home in Hayward and my parents would go there often. That was a long time ago. Lol
