What to do with Chipboard?

At the end of last year I agreed to show the Cards Unlimited cardmaking group I belong to how to use chipboard. But I needed to find out how to use it myself before my turn in September this year. Now I've done my research I think you might see a bit more of it on my Keryn's Cards blog.

There are a multitude of ways to cover chipboard and use it in your projects on the web. I've searched and narrowed it down to 16 that I think are the most usable.

- covered with pigment ink using a sponge dauber.

- trace shape onto designer series paper, cut out, adhere and sand edges. Sponge with dye ink using a stampin' sponge or sponge dauber

- sponge with pigment ink, when dry stamp with a dye ink.

- heat emboss using versamark and gold embossing powder and heat tool

- Two way glue covered with dazzling diamonds microfine glitter.

- Image stamped in stazon ink and coloured with watercolour crayons.

- covered with two way glue and covered with strips of 6mm grosgrain ribbon

- sponged with pigment ink, when dry heat emboss image over the top.

- placed face down over an inked background stamp

- Brayer and rainbow ink pad

- Use a sponge dauber to apply Stampin' Pastels using light colours first and then seal.

- sponged with ‘Encore Metallic’ ink and heat set.

- Stamped with a Stampin’ Around wheel and dye ink.

- Photo applied the same way as the Designer Series Paper.

- sponged with pigment ink then glue on microbeads using crystal effects..

The chipboard I used is Stampin’ Up!® - On Board Essentials.

I'd love to see the projects you create using any chipboard techniques that you see here or find on the web. Leave me a comment so I can see your blog post or send me a picture by EMail.
