I’ve said before one of my favorite things in the world, perhaps becoming obsolete, is a chalkboard, and this Chalkboard Paper Birthday Card gives me a chance to sort of play with a chalkboard again. Two new products in the Stampin’ Up! Occasions Catalog are the Chalkboard Paper and the ColorBox Chalk Ink Pads. The color of Chalk Ink I used is Rose Coral. I cut the Chalkboard Paper 2″ wide so that I could use the Tag Topper Scalloped Punch and the stamps fit just fine. Using the clear-mount stamps means you can place two stamps you want to use on one larger block and stamp them both at the same time. This stamp set, Big Day, is available as a FREE product earned during Sale-A-Bration with a $50 purchase of Stampin’ Up! merchandise! The background paper, layered on Coastal Cabana card stock as the card base, is also available FREE during Sale-A-Bration. It is called Best Year Ever Designer Series Paper #138633. For a little added glitz and to complement the “bokeh” design of the background paper, I punched various sizes of circles from the Silver Glimmer Paper and put a little bow on top of the tag with the new Painted Blooms Cotton Twine (3-pack) in the Occasions Catalog.
It is recommended that you purchase the refill for the Chalk Ink right away because your pad needs to be juicy for it to stamp well.

Here are the Stampin’ Up! Weekly Deals for January 13 – 19, 2015. As usual, some good things I would recommend and would buy myself (if I didn’t already own them!). Small as they are, I use the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack a lot. One thing I don’t own is the Angled Tag Topper Punch, which I might have to consider now that it is on sale. I know the ribbon is beautiful.
