More Fun with Chipboard

Here are two of the cards I showed my club the other night. Both use stamp sets that are on sale this month. Don't miss out on 30% off of these great stamp sets.

The first card uses two of those great stamp sets. This great cat on a broom is from "Haunting Halloween". The scan doesn't show well, but she is colored with several orange pastel colors. The card base is stamped using the small stars in the stamp set in black ink onto Really Rust cardstock. The pattern paper is from my favorite "Creepy Crawly" collection.

The Chipboard piece is from On Board Accents. "Eek" is from "Bitty Boos Too" on sale this month. Here are the steps to get a great glowing color on top of black.

1.) First coat the chipboard in Basic Black Classic Ink and let dry.

2.) Stamp the image in White Craft Ink

3.) Emboss the image with Winter White Embossing Powder.

4.) While the image is still warm, color over the image with a q-tip and desired color.

The second card also uses chipboard. This piece is from the Holiday Trimmings collection in the holiday mini catalog. It is the center of one of the scallop frames. I colored it with Yo Yo Yellow Watercolor Wonder Crayons. I wanted the chipboard to show through in small bits, so the moon looked a little hazzy. The bat was then stamped in basic black ink on top. The bat is from "Bitty Boos Too"-on sale this month.

Other stamps used: Spooky Skyline Jumbo Wheel, All Holidays ("Happy Halloween")

The sentiment in stamped in versamark and embossing in gold. THe ribbon and card base are both Pumpkin Pie.
