My Mind's Eye Chalkboard Studio

Hello!  We got a new line at work (new to us, but probably about a year old since it's debut)  by My Mind's Eye called 'Chalk Studio'.  We needed some samples to help the line sell, so I created some cards using the paper pad, sticker pad, and two different sets of embellishments.  This is what I came up with:

All the paper in every card is from the Basics Paper Pad. I love all the muted colors and patterns in this line.   The sentiments are all stickers from the Sticker Pad.  The chipboard button and banners are from 'Eighteen Buttons',  and the enamel  dots and twine are also from the same collection.  I used a MFT die to create the grey flag behind the sentiment.  I scored it and folded it to get the look you see below.  I put a paper doily from Wilton, behind the sentiment.

 My next card uses a sketch from MFT (MFTGUEST0712).
 Here's a close up of these fun embellishments.

 My third card uses a Deconstructed Sketch (112).

 Card Patterns Sketch 131 was the inspiration for this card:

 And finally, another Deconstructed Sketch (94).

I never really created cards using papers and embellishments all from the same line.  I don't know why, because it makes card making really easy when everything is perfectly coordinated for you.  

Have a great day!  Amy

Great work on all of the cards!
What a fun job you have :-) I think the first one is my favorite. I love using matching supplies, makes crafting so much easier when I have limited time!
