I LOVE the chalkboard look!  When I first saw these stamps, that was the first thing that popped to my mind and so of course, I had to make at least one chalkboard card for this release.  I started with a piece of patterned paper that was already chalkboard like.  I then stamped the star image from Notebook Doodle Stamp Set repeatedly in random patterns and colors (with pigment ink).  The sentiments from the new Shiny Happy Sentiments Stamp Set and the flourishes, also from the Notebook Doodles set, were embossed.  I really like how well these two sets work together!  So fun!

Up next is a very simple card.  This also uses the new Shiny Happy Sentiments Stamp Set.  I LOVE the fonts and combinations in this set!  I added some glitter with the Wink of Stella pen to the light bulb but my photo doesn't capture the shine.  To finish it off I added a small piece of glitter tape to the side.  

Here is the new stamp set featured on these cards:
