The Stamp Review Crew - Chalk Talk

Welcome to another exciting blog hop with The Stamp Review Crew! This week we are all sharing projects created using the Chalk Talk stamp set. All of our sites are linked together to take you directly to another stamper sharing ideas and inspiration. And the links will remain active so that you can revisit the hop at your leisure!

Now you know how fun it is to use coordinating products, right? Well, this particular stamp set has a coordinating Framelits set but also has images that coordinate with punches. I'm sure you'll see examples of these options along the hop. I'm sharing a project using a quote (one of the stamps in this set) that fits within the XL Oval Punch. First let me show you the image and how it looks once punched out:

Now that's great, right? No cutting, just punch it out and you're good to go. But you'll notice that there's a little bit of space between the outline and the outer edge of the punched shape. Trim that off you can now layer it over a piece of colored card stock cut out with the same punch. No second tool needed. Instead you can go nuts with the embellishments... ;)

Stampin' Products used here: Card stock in So Saffron, Soft Suede, Very Vanilla and Coastal Cabana; Retro Fresh Designer Series Paper; Embellishments Gold Baker's Twine, Desginer Vintage Buttons, Simply Pressed Clay, Buttons & Blossoms Simply Pressed Clay Molds, Jewel Basic Pearls; Tools: Big Shot, Framed Tulips TIEF, Itty Bitty Punch Pack, XL Oval punch, heart punch. Card layout based on Paper Craft Crew sketch 71

And next we have a fun little bottle tag. The tap water in Florida tastes very rich in minerals (read: icky) so we often put out bottled water for guests. Creating tags is an easy way to help them keep track of their water and with this sentiment you get to thank them for the gift of their time.

Stampin' Products used here: Card stock in Soft Suede, Very Vanilla, So Saffron and Calypso Coral; Embellishments: Retro Fresh Washi Tape, Gold Sequin Trim, Jewels Basic Rhinestones; Tools: 1 1/4" circle punch, Paper Snips

A little tip before you go: the gold sequins used above are the same size as our Mini Glue Dots. If you are going to pull them off the trim and use them individually as I've done above, simply slide the sequin off the strings and press it to a glue dot (while the dot is still on the roll). Press firmly and remove the sequin with the now-attached glue from the roll. It's now ready to stick to your project.

Now it's time to pass the baton. Thanks for stopping by and here are your links for your next stop:
