i made mine the full size of the card, though boatbird is talking about smaller pieces, both'll work!

Aye, rather than a whole card, just a small motif to emphasize something.

The flower is about 1 inch in diameter (2.5 cm) or so.

Sorry I can't put the picture here as it says that I haven't written enough in the forums yet. But the link is there Smiley

I do that with my Sizzix.  If you glue fun foam to the back before you cut, you don't have the sharp edges.

I learned a new technique during childrens church tonight.You take all the old crayons ( can be broke or just old) peel off the paper.Then place in a plastic bag ( may have to double bag the crayons) use a hammer and smash the crayons.Then get these tinfoil cookie shapes from the cooking aisle or craft aisle.Place broke crayons in tinfoil shapes ( we used stars,hearts).Do not fill all the way as you will bake the shapes in a oven til crayons are melted.Let cool and pop out the crayon shapes.As you color with the crayons new colors will emerge as you use the shapes.Sorta like mixed  crayons.No two crayon shapes are the same as the crayons are all mixed together.Just thought I'd pass it along.

On Fireworks or Photoshop, I put different layers together on top of each other and change the "normal" thing into "screen, colour burn, etc."

(do you get what I mena? lol)

here's a sample:

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)
