Is That A Chip On Your Shoulder.....

Happy Wednesday!

Donna Phelan here hosting this week's Challenge!  Come join in all of the fun and play along!

This week's Challenge is, 
Is That A Chip On Your Shoulder.....Or Card?
Incorporate chipboard into your project.  It could be a store bought chipboard accent or you could make your own by die or fussy cutting several layers of the same image and stacking them.  Your choice!
Remember if you do not follow the challenge, your entry will not qualify for the prize.  

  This Weeks Sponsor is CAS-ual Fridays Stamps

All the stamps and Fri-Dies are designed by Michele , and are based on her love for Clean And Simple design, hence the CAS in CAS-ual. However, they will delight any stamper's style! Whether you are a CAS enthusiast or a lover of Utterly Adorable Layers, you will have a blast getting inky with them. 
The stamps are made in the USA of the finest clear photopolymer, and the coordinating line of wafer thin dies are also made in the USA.

  2 Prizes
2 - $15 Gift Certificate each to the STORE
Here is my project:
I used the Happy Mail stamp set and matching Mailbox die from CAS-ual Fridays Stamps.  I also used the Casual Comfort stamp set to create my grassy lawn.  I die cut the mailbox out of Ivory card stock and then again in Brown, Silver and Red Glitter card stocks, layering them to create a nice sturdy chipboard element.  My envelopes were die cut 3 times, twice in Ivory and once in White card stocks.  I then layered them all together, colored the top ones with Copic Markers and then jazzed them all up with some Dazzling Diamonds glitter.  I think this creates the happiest of Happy Mail!

Sentiment and grass stamped in Garden Green, Pear Pizzazz and Old Olive inks.

There is quite a thickness to this card.
So put on your thinking caps, grab your most favorite dies or sharpest scissors and get a move on!
This is my last 'official' Challenge Post for The Mod Squad Challenge Blog.  I have loved the past year working along with this AMAZING Design Team and hosting these Challenges, but it's time to give someone else a chance and I really just want to play along!  Thanks for all of your kindness and support it is greatly appreciated!  Don't worry I'm really not going anywhere.  Thank so much!  xoxo

  1. Ha Ha, I was wondering about this challenge. Now I see what you mean, by Chip on your shoulder. Too cute!

  2. What a fun card! Nice job on this - love the title of this challenge - have a happy day!

  3. Great challenge but I will not be joining in as I don't have any chipboard as far as I know. LOL And, to tell the truth, I will be quite busy otherwise so it is just as well. I will look forward to seeing what others do though.
