Feeling "Chipper"?

 Welcome to the Stampendous November Challenge post! This month our challenge was to use chipboard in some way on our project. This was fun! I have a ton of chipboard shapes that I tend to forget about, so posting for each week of this month will be no issue for me. This week I used these cute ovals. I painted them in white and then covered them in this gorgeous Blizzard Crystal Mix Glitter from Stampendous. The ovals were used to frame these cute little images from the Perfectly Clear Yule Penguins set. The red and pink combination of the Echo Park "Trim the Tree" paper provides a retro and girly feel. I stamped snowflakes from the same clear set in red and pink inks. To add to the "chilly" atmosphere, I added a Martha Stewart edger border from glitter covered paper. Some paper-piecing, baker's twine, and a sparkle pompom finishes off this fun card.To complete the gift set, I created this Chilly Ornament to match the card using most of the same elements and techniques. Then I added some fun beads for sparkle. The rest of the Stampendous Design Teams have been playing with chipboard as well...let's see just what they've been up to:
