Good morning to you! It is a beautiful, sunshine filled day here and I am loving the fact that spring has arrived! JustRite has come out with an entire series of background stamps, Harlequin Script is the stamp being highlighted today! I used the Harlequin Script stamp to create a chair fit for a queen! : ) My chair is a little treat box that was cut with my Cricut and the Tags, Bags, Boxes and More 2 Cartridge. When creating a shaped stamped item, cut the shape first and lay it flat. Stamp the background and then fold it. For my little "pillow" I used JustRite's Spring Words stamp set. I have a mini tutorial on how I created the little "pillow" a little further down! : )
I used a scalloped circle die from Spellbinders and floss. Just glue the floss all the way around the circle. I don't worry about being neat (obviously! ; ) just get it all the way around and as close together as you can. Adhere the second scalloped circle on top and then give it a "haircut!" I stamped my sentiment and cut it out with a Spellbinder's circle die and glued that to my "pillow."
I used Martha Stewart's Silver glitter for the back of the chair.....I just couldn't resist myself!
It is important that when creating a 3-D project that it is pretty from all angles.....even the back!
I love the way the Harlequin Script adds a touch of "Regalness" to the project!
Be sure to visit the other DT gals.....they are so fabulously talented, you won't want to miss what they have done with this gorgeous background stamp!
