Candy Cane Lane SOA Collection Blog Hop Day 2: Chalkboard Technique

Share This!

ccl_bloghop Welcome to day #2 of our Blog Hops celebrating the release of the Candy Cane Lane Collection!

This quarterly Stamp of Approval Collection goes on sale to the Wait List on September 21st.

I’m guessing by how much you all are loving this collection, this one’s gonna sell out QUICK!

So make sure you hop on that list (you’ll also get my newsletter, fun behind-the-scenes stuff and exclusive projects and downloads – WHOOOP!) so you get the link to buy FIRST.

I have a fun card for you, then be sure to check out the list of links for the Blog Hop!  Awesomeness awaits…


Crooky Tree Chalkboard Christmas Card

I love how forgiving the Chalkboard Technique is.  When you stamp with white pigment ink, sometimes it can get a bit messy…but that’s kinda the point here!

The left over Peppermint Stick background (I’ve been working on this piece all week!) was a perfect background layer for the Chalkboard Technique piece.

Die cut, stamp and stack the layers of your crooky tree, adhere it to the technique piece, and you are in business!

Super fun and cute, right?
WHAT IS IN THE CANDY CANE LANE COLLECTION?  If you missed the previews of all the goodies that come in this year’s holiday collection, check these links:


Our Stamp of Approval releases make everyone feel like a kid on Christmas day, so if you are one for surprises, you may not WANT to see every product from this collection laid out side by side.

That’s why we never show all the products together at once.  If you don’t like surprises, no problem! View the beginning of each video and you will see every single goodie that will be packed into your box.

3 stamp sets, 3 sets of dies and one large background stamp.  Your box is packed with more than $130 retail value in product, and you’ll only pay $97.  These are while supplies last, so make sure you are on the wait list to be the first to get the sales link on 9/21.

crooky-tree-3 WIN the Stamp of Approval Candy Cane Lane Collection:  THREE commenters will be chosen at random from all the comments on all the blogs (one each day). The more blogs you comment on, the better your chance in winning!

HOW TO COMMENT:  Scroll to the end of the blog post to find the comment section.  If you don’t see a comment section, but see another blog post, scroll back up and click the title of this post. Scroll down and you’ll see the comment section.

Entries close on THURSDAY, September 22 at 9AM EST and will be announced right here on my blog later that day.



The Dream Team  members and our guests have projects ready for you using the supplies in the Stamp of Approval Candy Cane Lane Collection.  


See you tomorrow with more projects and our final blog hop day before this collection goes on sale.  TWO MORE SLEEPS, PEOPLE!

  • Robin M September 19, 2016, 9:58 pm

    Love the chalkboard technique with these cards. Maybe you need to rename the Crooky Tree to the Tippy Tree or Twisted Tree. When you say Crooky it is hard to not say Cake after it. That’s not a bad thing, just hard to switch to something different.
    Awesome collection, can’t wait to get my hands on it!
