Stampin' Up! How to alter chipboard

Do you have chipboard in your stash of supplies? They can be used as-is in all their chipboard/kraft colored glory or you can alter them for added panache!

Here are three favorite ways to alter chipboard:
  • Stamp a design directly onto your piece. Yes, heat embossing works, too!
  • Trace your shape onto Designer Series Paper and cut out. Adhere to the chipboard piece using a Glue Stick or Tombow Multipurpose Adhesive.
  • Or - the easiest way - add color with Craft (pigment) Ink. The piece you see above was colored by tapping an Old Olive Craft Stampin' Spot directly onto the surface. Set it aside while you finish the rest of your card and it will be dry enough to handle when you are ready. And as you can see, you can add additional detail with layers of cardstock or embellishments, like the jewels added here.
