The project just above this text is a frame I made using the Ginormous Pieces chipboard pack. This is a really fun collection because it has oversized pieces that can stand alone as in the project above or be used on scrapbook pages for a major impact plus it also includes some smaller accent pieces that would fit nicely on cards.I covered the frame with DSP and punched the holes with my crop-a-dile (love that tool!) The rest of the recipe is as follows:
Stamps: Tart & Tangy
Inks: Real red (craft & classic), Old Olive, Whisper White Craft ink, bashful blue marker
Papers: real red textured cardstock, summer picnic dsp (from occasions mini Caty)
Tools & Accessories: Ginormous pieces chipboard, Crop-a-dile, real red 5/8 inch grosgrain ribbon, black gingham ribbon, silk flower from Pretties kit, scallop circle punch, 1-3/8 circle punch, Crystal Effects, Eastern Elegance Rub-ons, Tombow adhesive, glue dots.
20 ways to use Chipboard:
- Colour it with markers
- Colour it with classic ink by pressing it directly into the ink pad or use your brayer (best for darker colours)
- Colour it with craft ink by pressing it directly into ink pad or apply with a sponge (any colour)
- Coat with craft ink or Versamark and emboss with clear or coloured EP.
- Cover with designer series paper by gluing chipboard to paper, cutting it out roughly then sanding edges smooth with a sanding block.
- Distress by sanding, sponging or stipling.
- Cover in glitter or microbeads
- Stamp on it
- Emboss designs on it
- Doodle on it
- Pierce holes and set eyelets in it
- Apply rub-ons
- Layer it
- Create flowers, creatures and object with various pieces (like punch art)
- Cut it using a craft knife
- Wrap it with ribbon or twine
- Place shape under a piece of cardstock and use a stylus to dry emboss the shape
- Use both shapes and their negatives as stencils to create new pieces.
- Use larger pieces to create frames, 3-d projects or album covers
- Experiment and try your favourite paper craft technique on a new surface!
The last project I will share with you today is made with one of our ChipBoard Clipboards and pieces from a Simply Scrappin' Kit. The clipboards come in 3 very different
sizes and offer a really unique way to display special photos or notes. I can't believe how quickly and easily this project came together using the elements from the Simply Scrappin' kit! I think I will definitely have to take a closer look at the other kits! Well, that's it for today take a peak back tomorrow for another fun project featuring Chipboard! Also if you have any neat chipboard projects you would like to share send me a picture!
