Have a Seat for Simple Saturday

Stampin up have a seat sweet shoppe alphabet

There's supposed to be a pun in this sentiment.  Fun, yes?  For today's Simple Saturday card, I used a stamp set that I coveted from the first time I saw it–Have a Seat.  I especially like the way they chairs look lined up in a trio.  Here's another way (from a previous post) to use a single chair from Have a Seat.

STAMPIN' PRETTY TIP:  With the clear-mount version of Have a Seat I was able to line them up, get the spacing right, dip in More Mustard ink and be done in a flash.

Here's the result of stamping the chairs all at once and no Stamp-a-ma-jig required 🙂

Stampin up sweet shoppe alphabet lower STAMPIN' PRETTY TIP:  Likewise, with the Sweet Shoppe Alphabet Lower (lower case), I was able to build the word "cherish" with my clear-mount version–all but the second "h."  The set includes one stamp of each letter in the alphabet.  I added the second "h" after stamping the first six letters in a row.  Still very easy to "tack on" the "h" with clear-mount.  The font is very modern and clean.

Both Have A Seat and Sweet Shoppe Alphabet are available in clear-mount and wood-mount so everyone can get their preference.

STAMPIN' PRETTY TIP:  I have said it before and I'll say it again.  The new Stampin' Up! Color Coach is a fantastic way to get the creative juices flowing.  It offers nice-sized swatches of every Stampin' Up! Color plus suggested color combinations on the back.  Not Quite Navy, Cajun Craze and More Mustard were ready to go for a Simple Saturday card.

Stampin up personalized stamps DON'T BE A SECRET STAMPER!  I have to confess.  When I put love and effort into a card, I want the recipient to know I made it with my own little hands.  Stampin' Up! offers personalized name stamps to tastefully add your artistic "signature." Check them out on pages 144 and 145 of the Stampin' Up! Idea Book and Catalog.

  10. Hi Mary, I love this card. This set just arrived at my house yesterday and I can’t wait to start playing with it. Quick question…what size block did you use to fit all three chairs? What a great idea. This will also be my first foray into clear stamps. I can’t wait to try! Thank you!
