Bloggers Challenge 43 – Chipboard

AAAAKKKK!  I thought I was really on the ball this week by getting my challenge done last night-and not DURING the night either!  But, I just realized that I had NOT posted my challenge because I had not yet taken a picture of it!

This week’s challenge was fun and easy-chipboard.  Now, not that I don’t have a stash/hoard of chipboard but I don’t reach for it much-why, I don’t know.  I’ve had this Making Memories chipboard since last winter, and decided to break it out of mothballs.  I colored the cupcake with Copic markers, and then filled in the "frosting" with white Liquid Applique.  I’d never used it before on paper-and this was mucho fun!  I sprinkled pastel colored beads on the top and then heated it up a bit with my heat gun from both the top and bottom until the Liquid Applique got puffy.  The beads stick right in there!  How cool is that!  Be sure not to overheat and scorch the "frosting!"  I cut it out, mounted on a coordinating Cupcake print from Basic Grey using dimensional foam tape to lift it up, and mounted that behind the chipboard frame.  The frame is also adhered to the card front with dimensional tape.

I punched the stamped tag (Whisper White card stock) with my large tag punch, and then free-handed the pink passion back to that.  I finished it off with a few spritzs of Glimmer Mist and sparkly organdy ribbon

My youngest granddaughter, Kristen, is sick with pneumonia-no fun…and I’ve always called103_0606  her "my little sweetie," even though she’s almost ten.  And, she not only loves to stamp and scrap, but she loves to bake too!  I know she’ll love what I did with the cupcake because she is all about bling!  Her clothes fall into three categories-pink, chamoflauge, and bling-either glitter or rhinestones-no flowers although she ocassionally makes an exception.  So my little sweetie, this ones for you!  Hope you get better soon!  I love and miss you bunches!
