“I love scrapbooks. They are one of the finest ways of dejunking life and abode... A good scrapbook is interesting and inspiring even to the stranger...Well put together scrapbooks and photo albums have warmed more hearts than any bound book... Without a good scrapbook, much that's memorable in life is forgotten or damaged or lost...."

Heart 2 Heart Challenge #8 - Stamp your own background

This weeks Heart 2 Heart challenge was to create something with a stamped background.  This allowed me the opportunity to do a couple of things I have been itching to do.  First, I wanted to play with the June stamp of the month Wonderful Friend.  Second, I wanted to play with a new technique I learned, chalk popping.  I am happy to say I got to do both and I am pretty happy with the end result!  This card is from the Originals book - Tied Frame but I made it into a 3x3 instead of the 6x6 due to the size of the paper that I used to experiment.

Supplies used:
Paper: Colonial White, Barn Red, and Garden Green cardstock
Inks: Versamark, Barn Red, Grey Flannel
Soft Chalks - winter set
Wonderful Friend stamp set
Pewter bitty brads
Liquid Glass
eyelets (not CTMH)
Originals card making How-to book

Head on over to Heart 2 Heart to see everyone's awesome creations for this challenge!


  1. Great card! The chalk popping turned out great.

  2. Love the vintage look of this card and the added brads are great! Thanks for playing along with H2H!
