This is my first week debuting as one of the new DT members on Do You Stack Up? (DYSU). We gals have already been chatting behind the scenes and making friends with one another. I already feel quite at home here with this bunch. To be honest, I feel so honored to be "stacking it up" with these girl and can only hope that I don't let them down. This talent pool is amazing. Make sure to stop by their blogs to check out the latest designs. So before we get started, I'm sure you guys are all curious to see what the theme is and what is at stake this week...
Yep - pull out those chipboards!

I am featuring a Lili of the Valley digi. Here my inspiration for this week's chipboard theme.
Stamps: (Armchair Bear) Lili of the Valley
Paper: (Paper Basics Card Stock - Vintage Cream) Papertrey Ink; (Basic Card Stock - Cream) Recollections; (Marcella K - Sophie Paper) K&Company; (Lemonade - Pink Fizz) Basic Grey
Ink: (Memento - Tuxedo Black; Versamark) Tsukineko
Embellishments: (Soft-core Color Pencils) Prismacolor; (Fresh Chipboard Motif - Crown) Maya Roads; (Brenda Walton Grand Adhesion - BW Princess Tags) K&Company; (Glossy Accents) Ranger
I have a hard time incorporating chipboard onto my creations, because I don't usually create with it. I started this card by wanting to use this cute dimensional "Once Upon a Time..." sticker with this cute Armchair Bear. After coloring in the bears, I created a wallpaper with the pattern paper that I chose.
I happened to be digging through my stash, when I found some fun Maya Roads chipboard. Isn't the crown perfect for the princess-wanna-be? I paper pieced this with some yummy Basic Grey paper and added a layer of Glossy accents to give it shine and dimension. If you wanted to be a make-believe princess, would you wear this crown? ;)
Thanks to Lily of the Valley I got to play with some great digis. I hope you'll consider playing along, and don't forget to hop on over to the DYSU site to check out the rest of the DT's work. In the meantime, I want to hear which princess you always wanted to be as a kid... :)
