Three Cheers for Chairs Challenge – Absolutely Fabulous!

Hola Chicas!


Happy Cinco De Mayo!!  I surely hope you’ve had a fabulous day today.  AND Happy 4th Wedding Anniversary to my daughter, Ashley, and her sweet husband, Blake.  I finally had a chance to get into my stamp room, and boy have I been having some fun!!

Three Cheers for Chairs

One of the first things I wanted to accomplish was a submission for the “Three Cheers for Chairs” challenge over image at the Moxie Fab World blog.  What a super fun challenge this was.  As I was formulating in my head what I wanted to do, I was browsing Kim Kesti’s blog – she’s one of the Paper Crafts “Go To Gals” and a super sweet lady!!  I had a total flash of inspiration when I saw this photo from THIS post.


Can you see where my inspiration came from?  I loved the white cabinets in the background, with all the white accessories, and then that POP of yellow.  So fun!!


The chair and that funky clock are cardboard stickers from the “Abode” collection by American Crafts.  The boxes and vase stamps are from the coordinating stamp set called “Dryer.”  I stamped them in Versamark and then heat embossed them using White Zing embossing powder.  Wow – that’s a lot of American Crafts products in one card, huh?!!  I love Zing EP!!


There’s still some time to play along with this challenge – submissions are due Monday, May 10th.  Check out the details HERE.  Thanks for stopping by!  Adios!

Fantastic card, and very inventive to think of premade embellishments as well! Great color combo, and you can really see the inspiration.
