Chipboard embellishments are little scrapbook embellishments made of thick chipboard. They come in many cool shapes that are perfect for decorating your pages. The best part is, you can actually get boxes of chipboard embellishments in craft stores for a really cheap price!
For this tip, I’ll share two ideas you can try to give your chipboard embellishments more pizzazz!
Before anything, pick the chipboard embellishments that you’d like to decorate and use from the pile. I chose these little arrows and hearts for my demonstration.
If you just want to add color to your chipboard embellishment, you can use dome distress oxides to make it pop.
Before using inks, make sure you paint the chipboard embellishments with white paint first to achieve a fuller color. Just use a small brush and fill the shapes in and wait for it to dry.
To color the embellishments, I’m using distress oxides. Prepare at least three colors that would work really well together.
Wait! Now That You Have Started On This Embellishment Idea, Then You'll Need To Start Incorporating Them To Your Layout....Let Me Show You...

♥How to get your creative juices flowing again so you'll NEVER experience scrappers block again!
♥How to always have the perfect scrapbook layout for every occasion!
I just started inking the arrow shape with a violet distress oxide as you can see below.
To achieve the ombre effect, just ink the first half with a really dark tone and slowly lighten the saturation as you ink the other side.
You can also try an ombre effect with multiple colors. Just ink half of the shape with one color, and add another one to the rest while blending them at the center.
If you want to seal it, you can also top it off with clear embossing powder while the inks are still wet.
It just works so well!
Embossing never fails when it comes to crafting. If you want to give your chipboard embellishments a shiny effect, it’s super easy with the help of embossing powder.
Just press your chipboard into a Versamark watermark ink to get it wet.
Next, grab your embossing powder and sprinkle a good amount on top of it to cover the whole shape. I’m using a copper gold powder which always gives a fantastic look.
