SOS393: chipboard

this fortnight's challenge at shopping our stash is to make a project which incorporates chipboard. because i knooooooooooooow you still have some! i had quite a selection from which to choose: chipboard shapes, chipboard alphas, chipboard mini albums, fancy chipboard, glittery chipboard... yep, i definitely liked that stuff. still do, for that matter! here's my card which incorporates a plain label shape, as well as an embossed butterfly and heart. i left them naked, but used a white paint pen along the edges to make them stand out a bit more.

i know the label shape was from k and co and is quite old. the butterfly and heart...? i have no idea. they were in a box with a bunch of maya road stuff, but the color seems wrong. i'm quite sure they are not by prima, which makes them about the only things on this card that are not by prima, lol. there's quite an age range too: the orange paper i've framed with the kraft chipboard label is from the "flights of fancy" collection and the diecut leaves are from "angelique". the fern leaf made from pearls is pretty old and a bit hoarded. the florals are from three or four different collections. and the two white mats --which i've distressed with great enthusiasm-- are from "pretty pale" which is quite new. i love the way everything works together so nicely, without looking too matchy... if you know what i mean?

here's a closeup of the embellies because i spent quiiiiiiite some time attaching those babies!!!

i hope you'll hop over to SOS and see what my DT sisters have made to inspire you and then start planning your own chipboard-centric masterpiece! ♥


  1. GORGEOUS! Very shabby chic, and elegant, and did I mention gorgeous?

  2. Ohhhhhh I was going to use the exact words Chris already used, gorgeous, shabby chic!!
    And...I am glad I am not the only one who "collects" chipboard!!

  3. This is gorgeous! And as is your usual, you have so many delicious layers! I have all that chipboard stuff as well, didn't think to use any of it! Love this!

  4. Awesome!!! love how you incorporated all those different chipboard elements and to almost know where they come from, I would have no idea if I didn't keep the packages. lol.

  5. I saw your card on SOS and had to come tell you what a gorgeous creation it is! I love all the layers and the pretty spring color scheme! Sooooo beautiful!
