May SOTM Blog Hop- Chairs to You

Welcome to our May Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!   

  If you have come here from Wendy Fording's blog, you are on the right path! The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way all around.  If you get lost along the way, you’ll find the complete list of participating consultants here on Helen's Blog.

We have bunches of Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using this month's SOTM and other great CTMH products on their blogs. To keep on hoppin' just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one!

Here we go!
May's SOTM, is called Chairs To You , and it is a beautiful set of 14 stamps.

Each month I participate in a swap with other consultants using the SOTM sets. We are each assigned a card type and it rotates each month so we all get a nice variety of sizes and styles. This month I was assigned to do a clear card. At first I couldn't imagine how I would do a clear card using this set. I like the chairs but I just couldn't think of how it would work. Then I started thinking of the clear card as a window and my creative juices started flowin'.
I decided to create this homey scene. It makes me just want to grab my book and settle into that comfy chair next to the crackling fire.

This is the front view of my card

I created the curtains using my new Martha Stewart Scoring Board. I love this tool! I used my cropadile to punch a hole in them to thread the hemp "curtain rod" through. The tiebacks are also hemp. I love how it really looks like you are looking through a window.
