Finally some chipboard!

WOW, let me first say-you LOVE blog candy. I was overwhelmed with all the sweet comments you guys left!!!! TOTALLY AMAZING-best email morning ever!!!!! I just wanted to get something up quick today. I stayed at the hospital until 4 in the morning (I started at 3pm) and now I have to get ready for a 10/10/10 card class. AHHHHHHH!!!!!
So here is another of today's cards. I have to say this was my first ever attempt at chipboard on a card. For all the creative things I do I've been intimidated by the chipboard-bought a ton of it and there is sits. I've used it plenty for tracing letters on paper or covering some piece with paper, but FINALLY I colored. This was another thing I picked up at convention. Just using the sponge daubers with craft ink pads to color them. It covers really nicely and dries quite quickly. I'm sure those of you that use chipboard are laughing, but kind of a "duh" moment for me. Just FYI, I am always inspired by looking through the Stampin' Up catalog over and over again. If your interested, this layout was inspired by the card on page 122-just my spin on it.

Smiles all!!!!

This is so cute -- great job with the chipboard!!

I never used the dabbers, can you re-use those? Should you use craft ink for those?

Great card. I have the same question as Nicole: do you need to use craft or pigment ink on chipboard to color or will it work with regular dye ink? Love the sentiment in the middle of the chipboard. Thanks for sharing.
