Using Your Chipboard With Your Cuttlebug

Hello, it's Liz here with my first blog post for WOW. To start your week off I thought I'd share with you one of my favourite techniques for using chipboard. I love my Cuttlebug almost as much as my WOW chipboard so what could be better than combining the two :)

Here's what I did:

To start off I covered the chipboard in ink - I have used 'Mini Alchemy Blooms 4' for my layout.

Next, I placed the chipboard into an embossing folder and put it through my Cuttlebug.

The chipboard comes out looking like these - all beautiful and embossed.

I then used brown ink to lightly go over the chipboard to bring out the embossing.

And here's the finished layout. I applied the small blooms randomly around the layout using foam mounting tape.

Here is a close up of the larger blooms - I layered them onto paper flowers and then topped off with buttons giving more dimension.

And lastly, here's a close up of the title. I have used the title 'The Smile Says It All' which I painted with glimmer mist.

So even if your layout is simple like mine using chipboard and altering it gives the layout lots of dimension finishing it off beautifully.

Have a great Monday, pop back here Thursday for even more inspiration.
