I loved this stamp set from the moment I saw it and when I went to work with it, I was blank. A few friends were cropping with me and I was telling them about this stamp set and one of the ladies said 'we used to make a card for those who missed Sunday school. We would use chairs and put flowers on one and the sentiment would be missing you.' The light bulb went off. There was a great heart on the stamp set and I had just received the Card Chatter Sympathy (D1476) stamp set. There was the answer, the sentiment 'Just sittin' here' - and on the inside 'thinking of you'
A simple card, Black ink for the chairs, Tulip ink for the heart, and the Black marker to create an outline.
I first made a mask by stamping the heart image on a post-it-note (up by the sticky part so it will stick on its own) and cut it out.
Stamp the first chair image in Black ink approximately 3/4" from the left edge and 1/2" from the bottom. Using a pencil make a light mark where the next chair should go, place the heart mask so it will sit on the chair seat.
Stamp two more chairs, stamping the middle chair directly over the mask. And the next chair approximately the same distance as the second chair. You could make a light pencil mark to ensure even distribution of the chairs.
Remove the mask, stamp the heart image in Tulip and cut the image out and using 3-D foam tape, pop the heart up over the heart spot in the chair.
Simple and yet cute.
