Chipboard Technique

Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeek!! I am on the mend!  I have a card to share with you today and a video tutorial link from my favorite go to girl for inspiration, my lovely talented friend Christina. Before we get to the tutorial, have you ever heard of Nestaboard??

Nestaboard is a chipboard that can be used many ways , it is put out by "Want2Scrap" and if you are into spellbinders you will love this product for you can achieve the same results for less the cost! They can be used in so many ways, it all comes down to your imagination!

Christina  put together an "alternative spellbinders" video sharing a way you can use Nestaboard her own unique way.

I may not have Nestaboard but I did have pieces of chipboard that had designs on them I didn't like so I used the same technique Christina did on her Nestaboard.

Thank you for all your amazing support when I was ill!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hello card using a circle negative (tutorial)

Well Hello my bloggity friends!!!!! I cannot express how much I miss all of you! Thank you so much for your support, I am not better yet for the hives made their way back but I am hanging in there. When I start posting every day you will know I am on the mend.

Last night I gained enough energy to make a card, the ideas that have been running through my mind since I have been forced to take a break are endless! Maybe it's a good thing to take a break!

I seen a video on how to make a trellis out of corrugated cardboard and had to try it, you can find the tutorial here.  I used potpourri on my trellis!!!!, smells so nice!

The background was my own idea, here are the basics of this card ( and how to make the circle layered effect)
Make your card 5" by 5" (I used blue cardstock)Cut a piece of pink card 1/4 " smaller for a mat  Cut a piece of pattern card , again 1/4" smaller Cut a piece of white card 1/4" smallerLayer the pink paper and pattern paper on top of you…
