Getting "Chippy with it"

I had group of "moms" who get together for stamping once a month, we usually make 2 cards and 1 3-D item, but it varies. This is just a class format and the preschool set is welcome to come play while mom's craft.

This month we did projects using chipboard and I can tell you I cased all the ideas! You got to love blog surfing, to get so much inspiration and ideas from others.

The bookmark Tiffany did for her hostess appreciation party and I thought they were genius so I totally copied!

This is a version I saw on splitcoast stampers, I changed the paper and then used new hostess set for center. I am sorry I can't recall who's original layout I cased.
This one I cased one done by Shelley Hopps her blog is Mocha Memories.
I love this one because it has no stamping on it. I used rub ons for sentiment and for the inner part of chipboard frame.

The idea of the class was to show how to use chipboard:
1) can stamp on it
2) color it with ink (here we used craft ink)
3) cover it with designer or regular paper
I used glue dots or dimensionals to attach it to card stock to hold the weight.
