Stamp of the Month Blog Hop: May's "Chairs To You"

Pull up a chair, sit, and stay awhile! Welcome to the CTMH May Stamp of the Month blog hop. (If you've come from Judy Burger's blog, then you're following the path. Otherwise, start right here, look around, and then move on to Jen Rubio's blog just by clicking the link- although be sure to read all the way to the bottom of this post!

This first chair card was totally inspired by a card I saw created by Aaron Brown. Check out her blog sometime when you get a chance! I used the Mayberry paper pack to create this 8"x3.5" card. I kept the embellishments pretty simple because I think those chairs speak for themselves. On the inside, I am going to stamp either the "one of a kind friend" or "Be You" from this set, accented with the tiny flower stamp.

My second card also uses the Mayberry paper pack. Don't you love this big comfy chair? I paper-pieced it and then had to embellish a bit with the matching ruffled paper. (I love doing this! It's so quick and easy. Just run a strip of double-sided adhesive where you want the ruffle to be, then start and one end adhering a bit of a card stock or patterned paper strip, folding back on itself, then adhering some more. I added a few Mocha pearls and a piece of a Kraft border to finish the card.
