…TSG64: Polka Dots and Chipboard


This week’s challenge is brought to us by our Trendsetter of the Week, Lisa! Two of the hottest trends right now are chipboard and polka dots…and Lisa LOVES both! Your chipboard choices are limitless…chipboard images, chipboard letters, chipboard embellishments, etc. You can incorporate polka dots by using dotted papers, ribbons, or creating your own polka dots! We can’t wait to see what you come up with!

I decided to use the sets “Let’s Get Together” and “Daily Grind” to create this “coffee day” invitation.  I added my polka dots to the cup in the focal image, then used a chipboard circle as the green mat on the sentiment panel.  I colored the image with Copic Sketch Markers, then paired it with some patterned papers from October Afternoon’s Farm Fresh paper pad.  The smaller cups along the bottom of the card were stamped using the Masking Technique.  After a little Piercing, Stitching, Punching, and loads of Dimensionals my card was complete.

To be eligible for the giveaway, you are to create a card that incorporates polka dots and chipboards, and then come back to the TSG Blog to add your name and a link to your project in the InLinkz that is located at the bottom of this challenge post. This challenge is open until the winner has been announced on the following Monday (July 26th). The winner will get a $5 gift certificate to use in the TSG Web store!

By participating in this challenge, you may also find yourself in the Trendsetting Spotlight that shines on the TSG Blog every Thursday. We will be on the look out to find challenge cards that stand out and show Trendsetting qualities. TSG stamps are not required to participate in the challenges but are appreciated :)

You do not need to have a blog to be able to participate in the TSG Challenges! You can simply add the URL link from your project after it has been uploaded to your online craft gallery. If you upload your card to an online craft gallery, please use the keyword TSG64 so we can check out your beautiful work!
