Diecut with Paint Chips!

Happy Sunday! I am sharing a card that I made this weekend. It all started with the new stamp that I have not inked up. The Roma stamp (from Hero Arts) provides a lovely map background for the design. I decided to incorporate my latest obsession--paint chips!
HI
I like how the paint chip shows through the diecut letters! I used therm-o-Web SuperTape and add a strip of Martha Stewart white glitter. I also stamped Across the Miles/plane images from The Envelope Please (Fresh Squeezed Stamps).
edited: I have added InLinkz in the following and have added all the cards that I made with paint chips. The collection will run till Christmas! If you have any paint chip-inspired cards, please link them up! I would love to visit your work!

Thanks for stopping by!

LOVE seeing all your paint chip projects together! I really love how you die cut the sentiment in this one and I really love that map background stamp! I made a card a long time ago with paint chips...not sure I should link such an old card...maybe I should try something new!!

There is no end to your creativity! I love the die cut sentiment and the map is the perfect background! Hoping to link up a paint chip card (or two!) because I'm soooo inspired! Can't wait to see more paint chip masterpieces.

Hi Virginia, sorry not been by but back in action and loving all these cards. I like this background stamp and so fab to combine with the FSS stamps x

You're totally responsible for me hanging out at the Lowe's paint counter. Anyway, your card is really gorgeous. The glitter adds so much and obscures those nasty white lines. Seriously though, very pretty.

You are so funny - I can't believe you ever sleep, thinking up more creative ways to use your (stolen) paint chips! Love it. Great touch of sparkle and love that soft map background.

Very nice idea to use paint chips. You must be the one that inspired me to do that. I think I only made one so far but it's a great idea.
