One of my all-time favorite stamping techniques is to use paint chip samples found in the paint department at our local home improvement store.
I recently found a vast treasure trove of paint chips with pretty images and color combinations printed by Behr. I picked up a handful and have enjoyed crafting with them.
Here are some of the paint chips I've collected.
I thought this paint chip would make the perfect card that I needed for an upcoming birthday. I just love the image of the little birthday cakes.
The colors match Stampin' Up!'s Peek a Boo Peach, Sahara Sand and Elegant Eggplant.
After cutting the chip down slightly to remove the little bear symbol for Behr paints, I simply matted it to a piece of Whisper White card stock. Then, I attached it to a Peek a Boo Peach card front.
The greeting is from Dragonfly Dreams stamped using Elegant Eggplant ink on a piece of banner cut Sahara Sand card stock.
I just let the paint chip do most of the work!
Next time you are at your local hardware store, stop in the paint department and take a look at the variety of paint chips.
Crafting with paint chips; the possibilities are endless!
Be sure to share your creations. I'd love to see them!
