  • About my project supply lists:
    I only use and share products that I genuinely love. The product supply lists that accompany my projects are simply intended to provide a visual overview of what I've used in case you have the same items at home or would like to add them to your own shopping list. I link to several stores in the UK and US and as of July 1, 2017 I am an affiliate member of, Amazon UK, Ellen Hutson (store retiring), and (as of April 2022) The Greetery - this means that when you click on an affiliate link and go on to make a purchase I will receive a small percentage at no cost to you. Money raised through affiliate links will go straight towards my crafting fund. Finally, please note that any products marked "(r)" are retired and may no longer be available for sale online.

What a beautiful blog! Saw your chalkboard card on PTI's blog and became an instant fan! Love those roses. Am constructing a card today to enter your color challenge. Blessings in 2013!


Beautiful card - love the chalk roses in the corners - perfect balance for the large bouquet!

Lythan Nevard

don't tell Betsy but I think this card is better than hers. It is one of your best in my humble opinion!


Great stamp to use! Your card with the pretty flowers is just beautiful!

carol aka krillsister

Lovely card.
I too love the tiny roses with the chalkboard technique.

Stephanie Hines

What a beautiful card! Perfect in every way!


so so gorgeous! I am really into the chalkboard technique and love seeing how everyone has designed their boards! I love your addition of the flowers...the colours just pop off the black chalkboard. Thanks for inspiring!

Wow, thanks for all the lovely comments. :D I have to say I think I will be applying this technique a few times in 2013, how nice to start the creative year off with such a fab creative discovery that makes you want to get the cardmaking stash out and play on!


Your card is so elegant and beautiful. And I have to check out the chalkboard technique right away ...

Julie Wood

I've not seen this technique before, Nat. It looks really nice, so I'm now going back to the link in your post to see how it's done. I'm glad to hear that you are using your KFC stash! Julie x


Nat I really, really love this card, you've done an amazing job of the blackboard technique and those roses are amazing too!

Handmade by Natty

Thank you muchly girls!

Julie I am glad to say that I AM actually using some of my new stash - it would be a crime not to considering the size of my Credit Card bill minus iPad! hehe

Mind you, a lot of it was Christmas stash, so I should certainly be better prepared for Christmas card writing come December! :oS


Wow, this is such a beautiful card and thank you for introducing me to such a fun technique, will definitely be trying this out. x
