Chips Ahoy: my adventures with paint chips- Day 3



Paint Chips, Day Three

Windows?!! Did I see paint chips with wee windows?!!? What will they think of next?  Who knew that the average paper crafter would love to see precut windows- no trying to line them up!! As you see I grabbed lots of these and I didn’t even touch the enormous color selection that was available. 

The windows are a perfect space to use those tiny little stamps that you bought because they were so stinkin’ cute!


A couple of hints when working with the windows, first,  check if you stamp will fit in the window. I just lay the window on top of the stamp to see if it will fit.


Don't cut the paint names off,  just cover them with a coordinating strip of paper.


The best part!!  Stamping!!  Lay your paint chip down on a piece of card stock and lightly trace the windows with a pencil.  Stamp the duck from the Playful Animal clear set by Hero Arts inside the square. Erase your lines and you are ready to color.



Assemble the pieces and stamp Cherish Today by Hero Arts and you have card that looks as though you spent hours making it.


OK- just when you thought it was safe, another paint chip and sample to wow you!  Stay tune and join me tomorrow.

  3. Cute project!

    I use a lot of these in altered art projects and you CAN erase the printed paint names on these paint sample cards with a soft eraser. You will need to rub, but it will come off!

  4. Can't wait for tomorrow!!!!!!

  5. Thank you so much. You have the cutest ideas. Love how the duck is slowly making his appearance in the window!
