Today I am showcasing the new Laina Lamb Design Document It – Off The Chart stamp set. I have a number of cards/projects to share with you today … so that’s get started!!!!!
For my first card today I used the Laina Lamb Design Document It – Off The Chart stamp set to create the Chalkboard Art technique. I have seen a few other people using this technique recently and it looked like fun, so I wanted to give it a go. The hardest part of this technique was actually locating my white embossing powder, but after much looking I finally found it along with my clear embossing powder which I have been looking for for months so bonus!
To create this technique I stamped the sentiments and images randomly on my black card using white ink and then embossed with white embossing powder. At the top of this card I have also used the LJD Hearts and Stitches stamp set to create the heart border along the top edge. I have also added some Razzle Berry ribbon to the top of my card.
Here is the inside of my card. As you can see I kept with the chalkboard art theme. I used the Die-namics Heart Stax to create my black heart and added the words “You + Me” which is also from the Laina Lamb Design Document It – Off The Chart stamp set. Along the bottom of the card I added the border from the Die-namics Boy Meets Girl set.

I decorated the Bubble Gum card using stamps from Lisa Johnson Designs Hearts and Stitches stamp set using pink ink and Wild Cherry Ink.
For the hearts I used one of the hearts from the Die-namics Rustic Hearts and the matching stamp from the Lisa Johnson Designs Homespun Hearts set.
The sentiment is from the Laina Lamb Design Document It – Off The Chart stamp set. I used the Die-namics Fishtail Flags Stax to create the flag for this sentiment.
Here is the inside of my card. I used another sentiment from the Laina Lamb Design Document It – Off The Chart stamp set and added another heart like I created on the front of my card.

For my final project today I created three Square Pillow boxes using the new Die-namics Square Pillow Box die to hold some Valentine Goodies.
For my first pillow box I decorated the front using the Die-namics Heart Stax and the Die-namics Fish Tail Flags Stax. All sentiments on this are from the Laina Lamb Design Document It – Off The Chart, there are sooooo many ways you can use all the sentiments in this stamp set.
This pillow box uses exactly the same Die-namics as the first one but this time I have used different sentiments from the stamp set. I love that 100% with that sentiment!
For my last pillow box I used the Die-namics Keys and Locks set to decorate it.
Here are the Die-namics I used in my Pillow Boxes:
