Tips and Tutorial using ODBD Chalkboard Stamps and Conditioning Rubber Stamps

Chalkboard images are very popular right now, and as part of our February Release, we came out with our own designs, that are unique to our company's style, based on scriptural and inspirational themes!

Unlike the Faux Chalkboard techniques, where you stamp white ink onto black card stock, our stamps were designed to achieve the chalkboard effect by stamping directly onto your card stock using black or colored ink, or you can emboss with black or colored embossing powders!
  
The cards shown below are all created by inking the Chalkboard stamps with Ranger Black Archival Ink and stamping on Vanilla/White card stock.

I like to condition my bold/silhouette stamps before using them so that I get even coverage of ink on my stamps.  Here's a video showing how I condition my stamps.  While watching the video, you'll also see a new storage option available from Our Daily Bread Designs for your Stamps and Dies.


This card uses Chalkboard Hymns, stamped in Ranger Black Archival Ink on White Card Stock.  I used Becca's Peg Bow Maker and Vintage Seam Binding to add a Double Bow.

Lisa!
I like your MANICURE! :)I thought at first you had gotten ALL INKY (thinking you must be SOME STAMPER!) till, I saw the sweet little swirly on the side of one of your nails! :) You ARE SOME STAMPER THOUGH! LOOOOOOOOVE your cards!!!!!!!!! :) "Conditioning" doesn't wear down the stamp? Thanks for showing us...! :)

Lisa Somerville said...

No - the conditioning won't wear down or harm your stamps. Using "light" pressure and the sanding block is just removing and dust/lint or film that may be on the back of your stamps. This really helps the ink adhere to those bold/silhouette imgages. Thanks for you kind words! The nails help hide the ink you don't see!

Great video Lisa! I too love your nails! :)

Thanks for sharing, can't wait until I get my stamps to try this out, I think it may be time for a new black ink pad though.
