For my card today, I'm inking up Chalkboard Greetings, this month's Triple Scoop set!

The Triple Scoop reward is a full-sized stamp set offered to you absolutely FREE with a qualifying purchase of $60 or greater (before shipping and tax).  The set changes with each monthly release, and is not yet available for individual purchase, so there is always a good reason to spoil yourself with MFT!

  • The Triple Set set can be combined with our Cherry on Top promotion as well for even greater savings!
  • PLEASE NOTE: We are not able to add Triple Scoop sets to your order once it is placed.  You will not receive it unless it is added to your cart
Since this set is Chalkboard Greetings, I'm trying out the chalkboard technique.  I spent hours looking for my heat gun the other day, but it is still missing!  I ran to the store and bought a new one, so I should be finding my old one any minute now.  haha!

I stamped the greeting in white pigment ink and then heat set some white embossing powder over the it.  After it cooled, I sponged some more white ink over the Black Licorice Card Stock to make it look nice and chalk-dusty.  That's my new word today.

I used Blueprints 3 Die-namics for all the die cut pieces, including this fun little flower, which I layered with a Pink Lemonade Button.

The inside of my card is decorated with the rounded banner die from Blueprints 3 Die-namics and I embossed another greeting from the set on Pink Lemonade Card Stock.
