May Stamp of the Month Blog Hop - Chairs to You

Welcome to the May Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!  This month we will be featuring the Chairs to You stamp set.  This was a fun stamp set to work with and I know that you will like it also once you start playing with it!

So grab a cup of coffee, sit back, relax and join myself and over 50 Close to my Heart Consultants showcasing some amazing artwork with what you can do with this stamp set.

If you have come here from Shirley's Blog then you are on the right track.  If not that is ok, as this hop makes a full circle.

Here is a card that I made using this fun stamp set!

Close up of chair:

Here is what I used and how I made this card:
Originals - Always Right pattern on pg. 89
Chairs to You stamp set
Miracle Paper Pack
Desert Sand, Crystal Blue and Colonial White cardstock
Desert Sand and Black ink
Opaques - Mocha

I used a sponge dauber to distress the edges of the desert sand and crystal blue cardstock.  I also distressed the edges of the Miracle B&T paper.  For the Desert Sand Cardstock I used my Scor-Pal to emboss the lines and then used sand paper on the opposite side to bring out the lines.  I used the front side of the Miracle paper pack and stamped the chair and cut it out.  I applied the Mocha Opaques as buttons on the chair and added the squares with the opaques to fill in the card a little more.
