I am so excited about this, I actually took pictures along the way to share if it worked!
Printing on chipboard:
#1
I just replaced an ink cartridge so I cut up that box:


#2
Carefully peel the top layer off the chipboard, it comes off easily but it's very thin so you should be careful:


#3
This is the shiny printed top layer (like I said VERY thin)


#4
Print out you clip art or letter shape or whatever you've chosen onto plain printer paper.  I actually made some placement lines on my paper because I wanted my image in the little square.


#5
Use a good repositionable glue, I used Scotch Craft Stick and glue your thin shiney top layer of chipboard to the printer paper exactly where you have printed out your image.


#6
OK, I've experimented and tried baby powder, talc and corn starch and in a pinch they'd be ok, I guess, but the scrapbook stores now all carry these little pouch things that you dust your cardstock and stuff with before you emboss so that the powder stays only where you want it.  Different brands different names, 'Perfect Pouch', 'X-Static'...   This is the most fabulous stuff, you can use it all sorts of ways.  I paid $4.50 for this little thing but I think it'll last a lifetime!
Anyway, back to the project---- dust your chipboard piece and run the paper back thru the printer.   You will see the wet ink on top when it comes out but with the little pouchy things it dries in like a minute or two and then you have:



and this is the pouch I have:



Forgot to add -- don't forget to glue your art back on the chipboard -- no one will ever know you took it apart. (except us)

I haven't done anything I've been happy with for a while now, but this last week the heat must have melted something in my brain, cause I finally made some things I'm satisfied with.  Almost all of these look better than the scans!

Pheonix, card base is napkin decoupage, embossed metal tape colored green with ink, then hand made leaf paper, some kind of roofing mesh tape (also colored with ink), metal leaf charm and magazine bird cutout colored with gold leafing pen and glitter glue:


This is one of those that looks so much better in real life.  The hand made paper is not nearly so red, edges if the card are covered with brass foil tape and colored with metal ink.  Embellishments are stickers (center leaf is on embossed vellum)


Trees thru the leaves, napkin decoupaged background, a little gesso over that, hand made simple leaf cut out and tree stamp layered on cardstock.  Gold leaf pen around the edges


Wiggle wired flower:  Again napkin decoupage base with a little gesso, then a wire flower (that now I see could have used another petal! lol) and a piece of cardstock for the vase.  Center of the flower is a smashed bottlecap.


Waiting Ladies.  I love this one --- so much better in person!  Made from a book cover (paper jacket-- whatever you call the paper cover on a hard back book).  Heavy shiney paper.  Just cut the image and overed a small piece of chipboard, made a frame from chipboard and the same book cover, like a slide frame, and layered it all on black cardstock.

Awesome, awesome, awesome cards!  You're making me want to brave the heat, go upstairs and create!  Thanks
