Have a Seat

This is another card we did in my Birthday Bash Class last month. I absolutely love the stamp set Have a Seat. It's just 4 chairs, but there's just something about it ~ I love it!

I've used two Embossing Folders with my Big Shot; Vintage Wallpaper & Perfect Polka Dots. This is my favorite way to add texture to cardstock. It's so easy and adds such a great element to your cards or scrapbook pages. I've also used two punches. The Decorative Label & Wide Oval. I punched the Label twice. Once with Early Espresso and once with Cherry Cobbler Cardstock. Then I cut the Early Espresso label in half and layered it under the Cherry Cobbler label. To add the distressed look, I used my Color Spritzer Tool with my Early Espresso Stampin' Write Marker & spritzed the card & sentiment. This is another easy technique that adds just the right finishing touch.

This card was inspired by one I saw on the Demonstrator Website. When I saw those chairs, I knew I had to make the card. This is just one more perk of being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator. We have so many resources available to help us in finding great ideas to share. I know I would be in trouble if I had to come up with every idea on my own! That's what Demonstrators do ~ Share What We Love & Love What We Do. If you love stamping or scrapbooking & want to share with others, contact me about joining my Team ~ We'd Love to have you!
