Stretch Your Chipboard!

Hi everyone!!! Today I am sharing some cards with you as well as some ideas on how to stretch your chipboard and get more use out of them. All of my chipboard is from Magistical Memories. I still have a bunch in my stash and still love it! :)

Here's a simple card I made using the Nesting Circles.


I first glued them on paper and then cut them into two pieces. I made a rainbow for my card. Then I used to remaining pieces to make this card:

I also used the bird on the above card.

Another idea is this...

For the above card I used the Owl Hang Around piece and sprayed it with some Glimmer Mist. Before spraying it, I put a piece of cardstock behind it. Then I used that cardstock for this card:

And added some leaves to it.

The papers for all of these cards come from Echo Park.

Hope you like my ideas and cards! :)
Have an awesome day!!!
