Sugar Crash Crop Challenges

This weekend was cardmaking fun, fun, fun!

We had another crop over at the Cardmaker's message board...the theme was Sugar Crash...including sugary, glitzy glamorous!

There were 10 challenges in all, I hosted one, and participated in 7 others...all in all, a great cardmaking weekend!

Here are my challenge entries, in no particular order...

and my challenge was:

Extra Chips for Me! - use dressed up chipboard on your card

chipboard paint & glitter

For this one I painted the chipboard, then stamped snowflakes with glue and sprinkled them with fine glitter.

chipboard heat emboss

For this card I covered the chipboard with versamark ink, then sprinkled them with sparkly black embossing powder and melted it with a heat gun.

chipboard stamp & emboss

For this card I stamped the chipboard butterfly with a background stamp, ran it through the cuttlebug embossing folder to add the polka dots, then spritzed with smooch shimmer spray.

chipboard paper covered

For this card, I covered the chipboard leaves with a glue stick, stuck it to patterned paper, used an exacto knife to trim closely, then used sandpaper to distress the edges.

All in all, it sure was a lot of fun!

Thanks for looking,
