Chairs To You (May SOTM Blog Hop)

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop which features the Chairs To You stamp set from Close To My Heart

If you have come here from Debra's 'Memories of the Heart' blog, you are on the right path! With over 70 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using this month's SOTM and other great CTMH products on their blogs, you should be able to find lots of great creative ideas to use for your own projects.  Blog Hopping is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one!

The variety of chairs with this Chairs To You stamp set are so fun to work with.  For this standard-sized card, I embossed the upholstered chair using Cocoa embossing powder on one of the background & texture papers available in the Mayberry paper packet.  The chair has really nice 'dimension' and looks so cute.  For the sentiment, I used the "it's your birthday" portion from the Card Chatter-Birthday stamp set, and the remainder of the sentiment is from the Enjoy Life stamp set.   The sentiment actually has the word 'Life' at the beginning and 'the ride' at the end, but I only wanted the middle section of 'sit back & enjoy'.   So, I simply used a craft knife and cut the stamp apart between the words.  Now the words can be used separately, or still assembled together and stamped as originally designed.

Now "Hop" on over to Jill's 'Scrap Wench' blog to see her work!  Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their blogs to get some great crafting ideas and other fun ideas!  Remember, the Chairs To You stamp set is only available until the end of May.  Regular price is $22.95, but you can earn it at a discount - 25%, 50%, 75%, even 100% off (free), with a qualifying order from CTMH.

If you get lost on the Blog Hop or find links that aren't working, there is a complete list of all participating blogs on Helen's 'Hooked on Stamping' blog.
