Damask Divas Chalk It Up Blog Hop

It's August and you know what that means!!!!  The new Annual Inspirations Idea Book is LIVE!!!  SOOO.......Welcome to the Damask Divas Blog Hop featuring the Chalk It Up paper pack!  If you came here from Sarah's blog then you are in the right place.  If you've hopped here by chance, be sure to check out the full list of blog participants on the Damask Divas Blog. 

I've seen a new technique all over YouTube and Facebook.......the "masking tape stamping" technique.  So I took a stab at it and made this 5x5in card....which surprisingly went together very quickly!!  Don't you just love the effect?! You simply press a strip of masking tape (must use the blue painter's tape kind, the regular kind is too sticky) across your ink pad and then press it onto your cardstock. Then stamp your sentiment and other designs over that, using black ink.  SO Easy!!!

I hope you have a blast seeing all the great projects with this new paper pack....and an even MORE blast checking out the new Idea Book.  You'll be in awe for days! :)
