Swan Lake Chalkboard

Well, here I am doing yet another challenge.  I really love challenges.  They are a great way to be inspired.  This one is Flourishes Timeless Tuesday #227 ~ Going in Circles!  My scallop circle die and punch were perfect for this challenge as we were challenged to make a circle card or project.

Stamp Sets:  Swan Lake (Flourishes), Trust God (Stampin' Up!);  Inks:  Popcorn (Color Box Chalk), Basic Black (Stampin' Up!); Card Stock:  Poppy Parade (Stampin' Up!), Chalkstock (Canvas Corps); Accessories & Tools:  Scallop Circle Bigz Die, Clear Circle Die, 7/8" Scallop Circle Punch (Stampin' Up!), Silver Mini Brads (Stampin' Up!), Pearl Shimmer Mist (Tattered Angels). 1/2" Poppy Parade Stitched-Poly Ribbon (Stampin' Up!), Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine

I love the Swan Lake Stamp Set from Flourishes.  For now, it's the only Flourishes stamp set I have but I plan to rectify that in the near future.  They have some absolutely beautiful floral stamps that are on my wish list.


  1. You did an amazing job with the chalkboard technique and swan stamp, and the embossed sentiment turned out so pretty! I'm so glad you joined us for the Timeless Tuesday Going in Circles Challenge!

    1. Thanks, Cheryl. It's my first attempt using that technique.

  2. Beautiful Marsha! Love the chalkboard look. :)
