I really like the chalkboard effect and in the recent Tim Holtz Creative Chemistry 102 Online Class he made a video to create this look using Frosted Crystal EP and I love this technique ! 



As I used the chalkboard technique I thought I should make a blackboard for this cute snowman so I downloaded this fab design from the Silhouette Studio store. the little pieces of chalk are in fact bits of toothpicks coloured white with a marker.



The snowflakes are new Simon Says Stamp exclusive dies and I smothered them with glossy accents before smooshing them around in a pool of distress glitter.

I have just realised that a gem has fallen off the branch on the tag, there should be 3  :-) Will have to glue them on better with glossy accents :-)


Thanks for looking :-) Our lovely GD Jess Larsen, and the DT have made some gorgeous cards so please hop on over to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge to see them :-)

I like both of these, but my absolute favorite is your miniature chalkboard card design. This technique worked beautifully with the snowman too. Blessings!
