I love looking at everyone's idea's on the bulletin boards, and of course in the Spring Idea Book too. May's Stamp Of The Month Set was a great one to get the creativity going.
I used "Chairs to You" to make a house warming card for a dear familly member that just bought their first new home, I can't wait to see it!
I went with a simple "Juniper" and "Cocoa" color theme. The background's scallop edge is done with a simple corner rounder that CTMH sells, I love tools that have a double purpose. I also distressed the edges of the "Colonial White" cardstock with our cute little distressing tool. I bought it because it was cute, and find myself using it for most of my projects...so handy. I used my little sponge daubers to add some ink to the edges for a more "polished" look. I also stamped the comfy chair onto the "Juniper" and cut it out to make it pop, but the buttons were just calling out for me to use the tiny opaque pearls on them, so I caved they were just the right size! I added a little pre-pleated "Juniper" ribbon from the "Wings" workshop on the go, and some "Cocoa" ribbon on top and a fun and easy card is done! If you need a list of materials to make this card, just scroll down to the end of this entry.
