Chipboard--Challenge #43

This time I have TWO projects to share with you....chipboard is such fun to use! It can be used in so many ways, on a variety of projects, and adds so much to whatever it is that you are making!

First project features Chipboard coasters....from my Stamp Camp last week. In this case, you really can't see the chipboard, but is was used to make the covers for this little card/booklet. It was a ton of fun to make and my ladies loved it. I made my sample a day or so after Stamp Camp (another demonstrator friend of mine designed this booklet; it was modeled after one designed by the ultra-talented, Nicole Heady), it's ever so slightly different that the one everyone made. Notice the Rose Red Designer Paper, the Flower Fusion, and Crystal Brad.
Stamps: One of a Kind*, So Many Scallops
Inks: Rose Red, Basic Black
CS: Whisper White
Misc: 1/8" Punch, Pop Up Glue Dot, Paper Piercer, White Grosgrain Ribbon, Lg. Red Crystal Brad (Fire Collection), Flower Fusion, Scallop Punch, Mini Silver Brads

*My version shows the "one of a kind" that has been stamped. The ladies used the very same words, but in rub on version from the Urban West Rub Ons.

Then for the left inside, here's what we did. We left room for a couple of photos (1st & last pages). Isn't this fun?!!
Stamps: All Holidays, So Many Scallops
Inks: White Craft, Basic Black
CS: Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White (base is 3.5x12), Old Olive, Rose Red
Misc: Rose Red Designer Paper, 1" Round Punch, Scallop Punch, 5 Petal Flower Punch, Mini Silver Brads, Flower Fusion, Wide Old Olive Grosgrain Ribbon
Now the other's actually a fairly simple card....or a card within a card! The left is when the booklet is open and the accordian portion is closed up, with the card on the right. Sorry, the photo of the card inside is a bit blurry.

Stamps: Boho Backgrounds, Fundamental Phrases, Curvey Verses, All Holidays
Inks: Rose Red, Basic Black
CS: Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, Whisper White
Misc: Rose Red Designer Series Paper, Build-a-Flower, Silver Mini Brad
