Die Cuttin' Diva's Challenge - National Craft Month ~ Use paint chips

Happy Tuesday Crafters

I'm so excited to be a Guest Designer for Die Cuttin' Diva's March 8th Challenge.

It's National Craft Month so this challenge is to Use Paint Chips.

This was a fun challenge because I had to think how I was going to use paint chips.

For my project I used several paint chips to create the majority of the chocolate bar on my card.

After I finished the card and took a step back I wish I would've used paint chips for the background and for the balloons. 

These are the paint chips I used.   
Had to take a picture to prove that I used some because it looks like I used paper to create the chocolate bar. ;)

Card Recipe:

  • Standard A2 Card Base.
  • Chocolate bar is from PPBN Designs "Cute Chocolate Bar".
    • Created using multiple paint chips.
    • Foil was wrapped around bottom piece 
    • Face from Peachy Face from PK-0182 Sweet and Silly Face Assortment set. 
      • Stamped with Black StazOn Ink because regular ink wouldn't stamp dark enough on the green paint chip. 
  • Sentiment shockingly is not from Scrappy Moms Stamps... it's from a set I have in my stash from Zenspirations called "Let them Eat Cake" set. 
  • The red mat was cut using the Spellbinders Nestabilites S4-317~Fleur De Lis Rectangles set
  • Tag & Balloons are from my Silhouette library.
  • Twine is Darice red twine.
