Hello Stampers! This is a new Valentine set from Fun 'n Flair stamps. I knew just what I was wanting to do when I received the Hugs and Kisses Background stamp set. I love the faux chalkboard look and this set was absolutely perfect for it. I stamped the image using Versamark and embossed it with white powder. I then rubbed white ink in various places to resemble the look of a chalkboard. I stamped the image again in red and cut out the heart shapes. I used glue dots to adhere the hearts onto the matching image on the chalkboard leaving a bit of the chalkboard image showing. I rand the white and red cardstocks through my Cuttlebug using the small heart embossing folder and finished off with a button and bow.

I am linking to the following:
