Speedy Fox & Friends 155 - Emboss with White

Happy Saturday!  I hope you are enjoying your Saturday.  We are spending the day outdoors today but first it's Speedy Fox & Friends Challenge time and we are creating a card using White Embossing Powder.  For more inspiration and all the details on the challenge join us HERE .

I am going to be honest, I didn't fall in love with the "chalkboard technique" when I first saw it but it's been growing on me!  So when I saw that our challenge this week was to use white embossing powder I decided it was time to try it out.  I used this video to help me get started: Stamped Silly . I really had a lot of fun playing around with the technique!

I used the stamp outline from "All Postal" and the sentiment from "News From the Woods".  I added the doodles in the corners with a white water color pencil.

Thanks for looking!  I hope you will stop by all next week as MFP a Heinrich Co. releases the new sets for April and I will have a blog post ever day! 
 Here is what I used to create this card:
All Postal

News From the Woods
Stamps: MFP a HC - "All Postal" and "News from the Woods".  Paper: MME Miss Caroline Dilly Dally, Misc. CS.  Acces: White Embossing Powder, Paper Studio Red Brads, Die-namics: Star Stax and Party Banner.
 This is the stamp set being given away to one lucky player in this week's challenge:


  1. Angie--I think you did a great job with your blackboard technique! What a wonderful card! TFS

  2. A perfect example of the chalkboard technique -- and I love the way you "shadowed" the banners.

  3. Good job on the Blackboard technique.

  4. I say "Wow" this is a cute card. Love the embossing with the white on black to look like a chalkboard. Great job on the challenge.

  5. That really is a WOW! What a great card - love the little banner you have added, the lovely wood background and your colour choices - you have made that technique work well for you.

  6. Angie,
    How pretty!! I love the DP, the banner and stars - awesome!

  7. great card. i like how you shadowed the WOW! i haven't tried that blackboard technique yet. like you, i'm not sure i really like it enough to spend the time with it. maybe someday.
