TSG28: Chipboard

Tuesday, November 10, 2009

Good Morning!

This week's challenge for There She Goes is to use chipboard on our cards. Now this is a real challenge for me because all of the chipboard I own was bought for my scrapbooking and I very rarely use it on a card!

So I dug through my small stash and found something that would work for a winter/Christmas theme. I think snowflakes qualify don't you?!

If I must tell the truth though, this isn't a piece of chipboard. It's actually a thin piece of wood. I found it at Michaels in the wood section. It's so thin it could pass for chipboard! I sponged the edges with Tea Dye and Vintage Photo Distress Inks and covered it with some of Martha Stewart's Mica Flake Glitter by applying a layer of UTEE on it first and while it's still hot, I sprinkle the mica glitter over it. Then I stamped out a sentiment from the recently released Home Sweet Home Holiday Additions set and cut it out with the Spellbinders Labels 4 nestibilities. Then, using this week's Friday Sketchers layout, I adhered the sentiment to the snowflake, and then the snowflake to the card base, which I created using some of that yummy Cosmo Cricket Holly by Golly paper.

Now it's your turn! Create a card using some chipboard, and leave a link to it on Monday's TSG Challenge post and you're then the draw for a chance to win a $5 gift certificate to use in the TSG store! Nice no?! :)

Thanks so much for stopping by today, I really appreciate it!

Beautiful!! It took me a minute to realize that was the Cosmo Cricket paper (which I love) because you made it so elegant!! I quite buying chipboard when I realized I could cut an image with my Circut several times (or sizzix) and layer them for that same depth! One less thing to want!! :-)Traci
