Cheshire Cat Paint Chip Card

cheshire-cat-paint-chip

I was searching for the PERFECT stamp set of cats/kittens over the weekend. I think I have my choices narrowed down, almost ready to buy. But I wanted to stamp a cat NOW. So, I dug through Offspring3’s stash of crafting supplies for the Cheshire Cat.

I have actually been inside of Home Depot 3 times in the last week – and only grabbed paint chips one of those visits. We are starting the process of redoing the kitchen, so I will be a frequent visitor to Home Depot and Lowe’s for the next month or two.

Supplies: Stamp – Her Majesty (The Queen’s Ink), paper – Behr (Home Depot) paint chip, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Smoky Slate, ink – Tim Holtz/Ranger Distress Ink Tumbled Glass, VersaFine Onyx Black, dies – Spellbinders (circles), Taylored Expressions (banner), embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear.

Paint Chip Gift Tags

 

Oh, come on, you had to see this one coming from a mile away!

I used paint chips, sample paper, and dies.

I order envelopes and paper from a company called Paper-Papers. With every order, you get a random sample pack of scraps. I LOVE THIS! Would I really order a pack of 25 sheets of all of the colors? No. But the scraps are great for accents and projects like this. Paper-Papers even puts a label listing the contents on the sample pack, so you know what you are using.

Paint Chip New Baby Note Card

diagonal paint chip baby note card

Yes, I am still playing with my paint chips. (this is a really old one…cross my heart)

Blog hopping last week, I saw a few cards with diagonal stripes. I like any kind of stripes. But, I don’t have a diagonal cover plate die, or a stripe stamp that is wide enough for diagonal stripes on a card front.

Think think think.

 

Light bulb moment!

 

I don’t have to place my rectangle die parallel to my paint chip stripes! I can place the die diagonally on the paint chip!

Yeah, really. I got that excited. And I do think in sound/media bites from cartoons, movies, TV shows, songs.

Supplies: Stamps – Stampin’ Up!, paper – Behr/Home Depot paint chip, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Pop’Tone Sour Apple, inks – Copic E21, R81, RV11, VersaFine Onyx Black, dies – Lawn Fawn (stitched rectangle), Spellbinders (circles, rectangle), embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear, organdy ribbon – Offray.
