GCA #85 - Use That Chipboard!!

Hello all!!! I hope this finds you have a wonderful Sunday and that you had some time to stamp today! I had my monthly club today and it was fun spending the afternoon with my girls!!

Now, how many of you have that wonderful embellishment, chipboard, but rarely use it??? Are you a hoarder, or is it you just don't think to pull it out? I think I am a little bit of both!!

For this week's GCA, you need to use some type of chipboard on your creation. It can be the basic chipboard that you leave plain, cover with dsp, ink it up or distress it. Let your imagination go wild!!

Don't have any chipboard you say? No problem!!! You can use any type of thick cardboard type material and cut, or punch, any type of image to make your own chipboard. Many stores, as does SU!, sell chipboard in sheets so you can customize it. But, I know many people will recycle cereal boxes, cardboard boxes or even the white backing sheet that comes with all of the SU! dsp! And, if you bought any of the Sending Love dsp in the current mini, there is a thick piece of chipboard with it!!

I'm finishing up my sample right now and will post it soon!!

Upload your creation to either your blog or to an online gallery and post a link to your creation to this blog entry by April 24, 2010 at 12 midnight. I will choose the winner the next day. If you upload your card to SCS, PaperCraft Planet, Stampin' Addicts or Stamp TV, please put GCA85 in your keywords. That way everyone can see all of the wonderful creations at once!

Even if you can't make the drawing deadline, PLEASE feel free to participate in the challenges and upload your creations at any time. I would love to see it! And yes, my challenge is open to everyone who visits, even if you live outside the US!

Happy Stamping!!!!

here's mine

I have got quite a bit of unused chipboard but never thought of colouring it with my Promarkers before but it was quite successful so I might do that again! Thanks for the challenge. Jill x
