Good morning!! I'm just now getting around to sharing some of the projects shown at our group meeting in July!! One of our members had never really used chipboard, and requested some ideas on what to do with it. I put together several ways:
For this card, I simply stamped on the chipboard with Always Artichoke Classic Ink! I used my Crop-a-dile to punch holes along the bottom, and ran my ribbon through it!
The above card was done with designer paper! Each of the chipboard pennants has been covered with the Just Add Cake Designer Paper. I used my Pennant Builder punch to cut the paper, then adhered it to the chipboard using the Stampin' Up! Glue Stick. (I put glue on the paper AND the chipboard, then rub with your fingers to ensure a good "stick") On the two "plain" pennants, I used my sanding block along the edges--this is a great way to get rid of any excess paper along the edges--plus it looks cool!! :-)
Isn't this one pretty?!! So sparkly!! For this one, I used the Big Shot Multi Purpose Adhesive Sheets. I pressed the hearts onto the adhesive sheets--rub really good to make sure you get it covered!! Then, poured glitter all over them! For the spots that might have been missed with the adhesive sheets, I used my two-way glue pen to touch it up--then added the glitter again! I used the Fine Supernova Glitter Stack for this card--the colors all coordinate nicely!!
This last card is my favorite:
I used the Real Red Craft Ink and covered the entire butterfly. The craft ink is so easy to work with, and the spots make it even easier to mush it all over! I then poured on the Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder and heat set!! It's sooooooo sparkly and pretty!! And with all our new colors of embossing powder, you could have a rainbow of butterflies!!
So, what other ways can we use/alter the chipboard? All the items here were made using the On Board Merry Medley, so they were already cut out! Don't forget that you can cut out your own shapes with the Big Shot!! Be sure to save all that chipboard that you come across!! Even cereal boxes work!! :-)
Have a great day!!!
