Lil’ Inker Designs | Waffle Flower Crafts | Chalk-Lettered Cards

Hello, friends! I have some fun projects for you today. I created these a few weeks ago and never got around to sharing them. They were very simple to create and I used my absolute favorite black cardstock for sentiments – chalkable cardstock! It is so smooth and really helps the sentiments pop when you heat emboss.



When I saw these stamp sets from Lil’ Inker Designs and Waffle Flower Crafts, I immediately thought about trying this technique.


I prepped seven A2-size bases of the black chalkable cardstock (linked below) and then heat embossed each sentiment with white embossing powder. Once all the sentiments were embossed, I dabbed on some Hero Arts Unicorn Pigment Ink using a wet wipe. Just a little goes a long way. That’s all. These would look great on their own (I left one card without any “frame”).


I used some of my wood-grain cardstock to create faux chalkboard frame looks and mounted them with thin foam tape strips. Unfortunately, this brown cardstock was no longer available so I could not link it, but you can use any woodgrain cardstock!



I used Distress Oxide Walnut Stain to add some darker texture to some of the frames.



For one of the larger frames, I used watercolor paper and watercolored my own distress look.


For one of the cards, I used Chalk markers to color in the images.


And, of course, I had to frame one of them! I hang this up in my craft corner.



I am hoping you were inspired by these cards and will try your own. I share lots of creativity here weekly so I’d love for you to subscribe to my blog and follow me on social media. 🙂
