Chipboard Saturday

Good Saturday Morning!
First off....did you hear the good news?
Jeff Gordon is on the pole for tomorrow's Nascar Race!!!! Yah!!! sure and wave to Jeff for me ;)
Ok now on to why you are all REALLY
Both of my cards today qualify for the Our Creative Corner Challenge that Amy gave us this use Chipboard. Stop by the OCC blog to see what all the girls have cooked up this week. We hope you will play along and upload to SCS using the keyword OCCC.
My fellow OCC girls:
This card uses Lauren's sketch as well. I had fun with this card. Lauren's sketches get me to step outside my creative box and try something new!!
My chipboard was inked up with Choc Chip Craft ink and then I dumped Heat and Stick Powder on. Then heated it up and dumped on SU! Microbeads. It's really pretty IRL. I stamped the dress from the new set Humor in High Heels onto watecolour paper. It was coloured with my Aqua Painter and re-inkers.
Stamps: Humor in High Heels; Cardstock: Choc Chip, Tangerine, Watercolour paper and Hawaiin Papaya DP; Inks: Timber Brown Stazon, Kiwi Kiss, Choc chip, Tangerine; Accessories: SU! scalloped edge punch, Oval Nesties, chipboard flower, Corner Rounder Punch, Aqua Painter, Choc taffeta ribbon, heat and stick powder, Microbeads, Dimensionals
Stop by all the other girls on Lauren's Saturday Sketch team to see what they have created!

Girl, we'll definitely be waving to Gordo...have I ever told you that my oldest daughter is a Gordo fan?? He's one of the number stickers on our camper.

I was going to email you to say I'll be thinking of you at the race.

I love your cards, especially the baby one with that ADORABLE little fawn. Sooooo cute! I just want to hug her!

EARNHARDT!!! You're rooting for the wrong guy, Dawn! ;)

Adorable cards! I'll have to see if I can pull out some chipboard later today!

Kristin Bueter said...

Love the card you created for Lauren's sketch challenge! I keep a close eye on your creations, and your color choices always inspire me.

OK, back to your site to take a closer look at the brown and white card you made for the LSC :O)

Great cards Dawn!! I have never used chipboard...I think it is about time I try.

Rose Ann said...

I lovin' how you've used the chipboard on these, Dawn!! Your first card is so pretty, and I love those papers, cute dress, and scallops!! Your baby card is just darling, and I love the papers on this as well!!

Bonnie said...

I like them both Dawn! Chipboard is such a blocker for have used it fabulously!

Lisa said...

WOW!! Dawn I stumbled accross your blog whilst paying a regular visit to Alison's blog and I have to say I am totally inspired by all of your creations. I couldn't pick a fav if I tried.

They are all stunning, beautiful, inspirational, the colours and the layout you choose are spot on.

I hope to be creating cards like these soon.

My problem is I demonstrate a lot of the time and have to make cards with the products I am given.. so can't wait just to create for fun!!

Looking forward to the next post.

Heather said...

Oh, I love them both. I never have put micro beads on Chip Board. I have embossed it, but never used Micro Beads. Will have to do that this week for the blog!

Thanks for sharing and for the insperation!

I do not have my challenge card done yet, but I will have to do it and get it posted!

Hope you are feeling better, Have a great day!
