My projects with chipboard!

Hello ladies!

As you may have noticed, I have a thing with chipboard! When I 1st began scrapbooking, I bought the big shot and I have made my collection of dies but ONLY bigz so I can cut Chipboard..LOL!!!

You can't imagine my joy when I found out that all the Once Upon A...Sketch DT was sponsored by Imaginarium Designs !!! They have GORGEOUS designs and they are SO generous!!!!
Thank you for that ID!!!!

Today I am going to share with you several projects where I have used chipboard!
ATTN: LONG POST...hehe...well...I love chipboard...

Listen to your heart
I have used this gorgeous Imaginarium Designs little frame which I painted black and I have randomly put some copper dabber paint on it.

I Adore you
I used sfragidomania heart frame which I painted with gesso and droped some glimmer mist!

Imaginarium Designs flourish which
I painted with white acrylic paint and stamped the music notes above it in pink!

 My girls in the tram having fun
I used ID for the title, the button and the girl figure .
Small button: I heat embossed it with black zing powder and then I stamped some music notes and heat embossed with white zing.
Girl figure: I painted it with acrylic, I stamped the notes and heat embossed with white Zing. After that I applied some pink glimmer glaze.
Title: I painted black and heat embossed with clear utee

 Me & You

I cannot show it because it is going to be published in Scrapbooking memories,
 but here is a close up of ID title!
I painted the title with red acrylic paint, I randomly distressed with black ink using a sponge and then I rubbed some stickles with my finger!

A moment in time
ID again!
I painted the phrase with espresso dabber and then I heat embossed it with clear UTEE.
The corner flourish was also painted with espresso, and a bit of watermelon and pool dabbers and then heat embossed with UTEE.
The window/fence, was heat embossed with walnut stain and broken china distress powders and some Ranger red pepper embossing powder and then I put crackle accents above!

Mini album "Friends" & you and me card.
This is a mini album from sfragidomania where I've used acrylic paints, stamps and heat embossing powders!!!

For this card :

Mini tutorial:
1) You paint the chipboard with acrylic paint
2) You apply crackle accents on top
3)  When it is dry, you paint it all with another color
4)  and  immediately, before it dries, you take it off with a baby wipe.
The second color stays in the crackles and you get  this awesome effect!!!
Isn't it cool????

Bouquet of rose kisses
I painted the lamp with distress crackle paint, put some orange dabber randomly and cover with stickles!

Chocolate lover
I painted the heart dark brown, apllied random gold dabber, cover with crackle accents and pour some glitter on top!

 Vintage me
I did the same as above to the letters and I covered the cage with crackle paint and orange dabber!

Here I have painted  the cage green and blue  and heat embosed it with distress embossing powder!
