February inspiration.

by | Feb 16, 2022 | General

Good morning
Because the feature product this month is chipboard I thought it would be a good time to remind myself that
chipboard is great on cards.
These are the two cards I created
I cut pink cardstock to 10 1/2″ x 5 1/4″, scored at 5 1/4″ on the 10 1/2″ side.
This makes a 5 1/4″ card.
The papers I used for these cards is Couture Creations Peaceful Peonies.
The beautiful lace is from my Mum.
For the top card I cut Patterned paper No. 10 to 5″ square and 4 strips 1″ x 5″
I distressed the edges of all of the patterned paper
and then inked the edge using my VersaColor black ink cube.
I attached the 5″ square using Art Glitter glue
and the 1″ strips were attached with foam squares.
I used my hot glue gun to attach the lace about 2/3rds of the way up the card front.
I fussy cut several flowers from Patterned Paper No 6.
I inked the edges of the flowers and attached them to the card front.
A 4 1/4″ x 1″ strip that had been distressed and inked is attached to the card front,
about 1/3rd of the way up from the bottom. This is where I will put the greeting
The chipboard I used on this card is from the “Around the World in 8 weeks”
challenge that was held by Mystical Scrapbooks last year
I sprayed it with white undercoat and then covered it with gold ink.
The greeting was stamped using LDRS Happy Birthday Stack
and die cut using LDRS Sentiment Stack die.
I stamped it with Versafine Onyx Black Ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.
Final step was to add a few drops of Spun Sugar Distress Stickles
Card No. 2
The papers for this card are Patterned Paper No 1.
I cut a 5″ square piece and a 2″ x 5″ piece.
I cut 2 pieces 1/2″ x 5″ and attached one to each of the long edges.
I attached the lace vertically, approximately the middle of the card.
I added some fun foam to the back of the strip and then attached it to the front of the card
so it slightly overlapped the edge of the lace.

I then attached some of the fussy cut flowers to the panel.

The chipboard for this card is from Memory Maze – Wire Butterfly Set.
I added a coat of Nuvo Drops – White Blizzard
to the undercoated chipboard before attaching it to the card.
The sentiment is a Rub On (from Kaisercraft I think) and is attached to the card using foam squares.
While the Nuvo Drops were still wet I sprinkled Spellbinders Sparkle Dust Glitter
over it and then tipped the excess off.
Once again I added a few dots of Spun Sugar Distress Stickles randomly on the card front.

If you make cards I hope you will use some chipboard on your next card.
Love to see them if you do
Till next time
Stay safe
