It's A Chair Affair!

I know, I have used Impression-Obsession's Fall Serenity image before, but I saw a card HERE, that made me want to use it again!  So this time I stamped the image twice with Stazon-Timber Brown, so I could use one as a base, and painted with Twinkling H2O's Warm Pecan, Buttercup, Dreamsicle, and Ginger Peach.  I always paint with a Niji waterbrush.  (I never spray my pots of color, and I paint directly from the pot.)  I cut both images out.   I turned the painted image over and embossed on a Perganamo embossing mat and embossed with a stylus.  I spot stamped the pumpkin on the chair and the little pumpkin on the floor with a dauber of the Timber Brown.  I painted, cut them out, and embossed them too.

Here was the fun part!  I used my Mega Mount to stamp the upper 'wallpaper' behind the chair with Impression Obsession Cover-A-Card Round Floral, inked with Memento Bamboo Leaves, on SU Saffron cardstock (I think) .   Then I stamped IO Cover-A-Card Wood Grain, inked with Memento Rich Cocoa, on Bazzill Monochromatic Walnut cardstock.

I put a piece of Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 80lb. cardstock and Spellbinders largest Lattice Rectangle die though the Cuttlebug.   I then used the same die as a stencil to get the wallpaper and floor.  I left a space in between as the 'baseboard molding'.  These were mounted to the die cut.

A piece of Bazzill Dotted Swiss Clover Leaf cardstock was mounted on white cardstock as the base.  The die, with wallpaper and floor, were mounted on to that.  I used my retired SU Small Horizontal Slot Punch to be able to place the May Arts ribbon. 

3D pop dots were used to mount the chair with pumpkins.  Next the larger pumpkin on the chair and the smaller one on on the floor, that were separately cut out, were mounted with 3D pop dots.  The ribbon was mounted.  I made the triple bow with my Bow-Easy.  I twisted each bow loop in the opposite direction to get the swirly effect.



The stick pin was created using a Maya Road Trinkit Crystal pin with Czech leaf and faux pearl beads added after adding a dab of Glossy Accents onto the shaft.  The pearls on the chair back and skirt ruffle were added using Viva Decor White Pearls.

I hunted forever to find a post for the really simple easel card fold I used to do this step and found it HERE, using white cardstock.  I layered the bottom portion with the Bazzill Dotted Swiss Clover Leaf cardstock, created wallpaper, and more white cardstock.

The sentiment is computer generated.  I didn't have a stamp I liked and didn't want to shop or wait.  I ran it through the Cuttlebug using a Spellbinders Fancy Tags One die.  Then I used my Magic Matter around the die cut.  Of course, I had to turn it over on the Pergamano embossing mat and use a stylus around these edges too.  The Self-Adhesive Pearl Jewels are some I've had a long time from Oriental Trading Post.

That's it for today and I hope you are having a great weekend!  Thanks for stopping by to look and say hi!!!

Hello there Shirley, This new card is beautiful, I love the colours and the dimension you've achieved on the chair, stunning! What a pain that you couldn't get less that 25 calendars, who needs that many?? Certainly not me either. Have a great week, Gay xxx

What a beautiful card! I love how you explained the card -- especially about using your waterbrush directly from the pot without spritzing the color with water! Love the background and everything you did with the chair.

Curt in Carmel said...

Seriously Shirley, each of your cards is such a work of art. I've always loved this image, and you've used it beautifully. The beautiful pin stuck through the ribbon was a beautiful touch. On a side note, I love how you "picture" all of your supplies at the bottom of your post. That must take a lot of time, but typically thoughtful of you! Best, Curt
