Dollar Find Friday (Chipboard Element)

Today's tutorial is a Freebie find! I know you guys all have chipboard of some kind laying around (like food boxes for example). Here are a couple of ideas on how to use them for our cards.

Die cuts of your choice
Fine glitter (I got mine at JoAnn's)
Glue pad
Embossing powder (I made custom powder using UTEE and Perfect pearls)
Heat gun
Versa Mark

Step 1-1: Cut chipboard using die cut

Step 1-3: Cover shape using glue pad.

Step 1-3: Cover with fine glitter.

Finished chipboard accent

Step 2-1: Cut out chipboard (I used Nestibilities for this one)

Step 2-2: Cover piece in VesaMark

Step 2-3: Cover with embossing powder

Step 2-4: Heat with heat gun

Step 2-5: If you desire, you can repeat the last step for more coverage

And here is how I used my chipbard on a card. Enjoy and have fun!

This is awesome!!! I just got the glue pad at a stamp show couple of weeks ago and I have not tried to cover chipboard, yet, I will have to play with glitter.
Visiting from Splitcoast blog comment thread...I have a little extra time tonight to play.

Darn! I just threw out a nice clean cereal box, not realizing what a resource it could have been. Thanks for the ideas--that's the last box that goes!

Now I MUST remember to get out my glitter more often, especially with the holidays right around the corner. Thanks for the inspiration!
