I’m back with another Drunken Stampers Thing: Chipboard challenge. I have SOOOOO much chipboard that I really like, but never use. This was a great excuse to break into it. I especially like the Basic Grey adhesive chipboard that matches the collections–but I hoard it because I like it TOO much.

Chipboard challenge for Drunken Stampers

…Smiling at me

This coveted chipboard is from the What’s Up collection. The paper is from the Basic Grey Capture collection and the little arrow is from Basic Grey Carte Postle. I like that the little birdies are hovering in the sky with the banner ­čÖé

Remember how much I love the new wood veneer shapes? A lot, right? Well the ones at Michael’s come in a tiny wooden box. It seems a shame not to use that for something too (as I knew I would!). When I saw this Tuesday Trigger picture from Moxie Fab World, I knew it would be perfect!

It started out as a plain wooden box..and then voila!

Petite Shadow Box with flowers and wood

Beautiful and Fat Free!

I used 6 of my new wooden flowers and altered them with brads, Smooch Inks, Stickles, and fabric flowers. It’s a little hard to see the dimension, but I popped them all up with a couple layers of foam tape. The entire box is cover with some decorative tape I also bought at Michael’s. I’m pretty impressed with the variety of things that they are now carrying. I won’t be giving up buying from my favorite local and online stores, but, in a pinch, there’s a lot more options at Michael’s now.

Now I just need to find this a home.

The card I made for today’s Little Tangles Challenge was fun. As you might know, I’m really addicted to all the new little wooden shapes popping up. I bought a ton of Prima ones, but I was at Michael’s before the retreat this weekend and found they have a bunch too. So, of course, I had to buy some (or a lot). And they even come in these great little wooden boxes. I’ve already┬áre-purposed┬áone into another challenge project I’ll post later this week. YAY! But I digress… The Little Tangles Challenge for this week is Emboss It!

Emboss It Challenge!

I wasn’t sure if it would work, and I think I need a couple more tries at it, but I think the little mushroom has some character now.

Happy Day card with Wood Veneers and paper piecing

Good Day to be an Owl!

Here’s a look at the layers of the card.

Layers and More Layers!

Layers and More Layers!

It’s a little hard to see, but I colored the mushroom top with shiny red Smooch Ink and then I used the Stampendous Boss Gloss and clear embossing powder on the mushroom top to give it some shine and dimension. The clouds also have shiny resist. Little owl man is stamped from the Little Bear set and the sentiment is from the Fresh Blooms stamp set.


And for those interested, I did Make Something with my Scraps today. Day 2 complete. ­čÖé
