My Polka Dot Chair

I created a card with the Sizzix Base Card that accomodates the Pop 'N Cuts inserts.  The outside is cut without the chair or any other insert, just the plain base card die.   This snapshot is of the outside of the card which I designed to look like the outside of a house with a trellis and vining flowers.  The bricks are created with a Tim Holtz Sizzix embossing folder.   The flowers are a combination of die cuts and punches layered.  The trellis is from Cheery Lynn Designs.  The picket fence is a Martha Stewart edge punch.  The bricks and flowers were colored with Copic markers using both airbrushing and coloring.

This is the inside of the card.  The base of the card was cut with the diecut base including the chair insert.  The walls are were then cut with the base cut die and chair insert using paper  from Dear Lizzy Neapolitan Paper Pad 6 x 6 from American Crafts paper .  I'm uncertain of the name of the floor paper but it came from Hobby Lobby.  The polka dot chair paper is also from American Crafts from the paper pad below.

This is the base die (the larger black piece in the picture).  The smaller black piece is the circle insert which is taken out to cut the base of this card .
Paper used for wallpaper and chair.

Pop 'n Cuts chair insert this piece is placedn the magnetic portion of the die where the circle insert was before it was taken out.

Flowers are colored with Copic markers and layered.  I used the 3/16" Glue dots for the trellis and flowers.  I do wish that they made these in a smaller size.  Sometimes I cut them in half.  The QuicKutz quicker poker picker upper is a great tool for lifting the glue dots off the paper and rolling it to put on the backs of the flowers and trellis.

The sofa table, lamp, picture and throw rug are from this Sizzix embossing folder called "Foyer".  After embossing them, I fussy cut them  out and did some accent coloring and shading with Copic markers.

The girl on the horse is a stamp from Stampscapes colored with Copic Markers.

This sentiment from Cloud 9 Simple Thoughts Baby says it all.  It is airbrushed with Copic markers.

This little one gets photographed every month in her polka dot chair.  The photo was printed on cardstock and fussy cut.  The yellow scissors in the picture below are KAI.  They have the finest point that I have ever seen on a pair of scissors.  I would call them surgical quality....and have stabbed myself more than once.  However, I can cut things with these scissors that I never though possible.  I made the pillow with pop dots and the wallpaper paper.  

 Kia scisscors, Fiskar scissos, Spellbinders label and QuicKutz Quicker-Poker-Picker-Upper which is great for rolling the glue dots to fit on the back of small places..

Would love to see these glue dots in a smaller size, at least half of this size.
