I started by cutting a 5″ circle with my Stampin’ Up! Circle Scissor Plus out of Whisper White card stock.


Stamp the horse stamp by first loading it with Versamark, then tapped a bit of Bashful Blue ink on the front half of the horse using the a corner of the ink pad and then stamped it.


Heat embossed the image using clear embossing powder and a heat gun.


Colored over the horse image using a Versamark marker to fill in the little open areas of the design.  Heat embossed the image again using clear embossing powder and a heat gun.  Now the image is completely protected.



Punched a 1 3/4″ circle from the sticky part of a post it note and used it to mask the moon.


Brayered Bashful Blue ink in the sky area.


Brayered Not Quite Navy ink in the sky area.


Removed the post it note moon mask.


Sponged Not Quite Navy ink on the bottom of the card stock.


Sponged Night of Navy ink at the bottom of the card stock, not covering the Not Quite Navy ink entirely.


Outlined around the bottom of the horse with a Bashful Blue marker.


Stamped the small medallion image from the “Wanted” set around the outside of the main image panels edge using Basic Black ink.


Sponged Basic Black ink around the outside edge.


Added Not Quite Navy and Basic Black panels and Not Quite Navy Large Photo corner punches.


Added Basic Black star punches and silver brads.


Finished assembling the card and here it is finished measuring 5.5″ square.


Give it a try!

Before, I close today here is little stampers Christmas poem that was sent to me by Arlene Vita.  Thanks Arlene.  :)

Twas the night before Christmas, I’m glued to the tree.
I’m wondering what Santa brought just for me.
Could it be cardstock or inkpads or lace?
Or some stamps, I said, with a smile on my face.
And that’s when I heard him……
“Hi Santa, ” I said
He replied, “You know….good girls should be in their beds”.
“I know I should Santa,and now I’ve been caught.
But I was just so excited to see what you brought.”
“Well, let’s take a look in this room where you work”.
He shook his head quickly, and left with a jerk.
I heard him exclaim as he put it in gear.
“You’ve got enough crap,
I’ll see you next year!”

I personally don’t think you can have enough stuff, lol.

Huge Hugs,

    Michelle oh my goodness I just love love love this card, I think maybe just maybe this is my all time favorite. I guess because I am a horse lover from way back when I was a small child. Also my late husband and I raised and showed quarter horses. We taught our children to ride at a young age, our family thinks that horses are tops. Thanks for this wonderful tutorial.

  2. Love the card and the Christmas poem. Thank you!

  3. OMG, I was LOL at the wonderful Poem :)
    Great card, too. Looks like the light is reflecting off the horse, you are amamzing. (I bet you had a wonderful week with Hailee)

  4. Stunning!!! I hope you are proud; I’ve been practicing with my brayer……we fight all the time!!! I’ve developed a new language when working with it. As time goes by, I’ve evolved into a “kinder & gentler” brayerer? One of these days I’ll be able to run with the big dawgs but until, I’ll enjoy your tutorials that make it look so easy!!!

    Great Poem and thanks for sharing. Welcome home.

  5. HA! My husband would certainly agree with that poem!
    This card is simply stunning & I’m going to try it. I’ve never made any square cards, but there’s no time like the present to start.

  6. Love the poem! I may have to use that on a card. Did Arlene write that? I want to credit the right person when I use it. Thanks.
    From the “Whimpy Stamper” : )

  7. Gorgeous card and I can relate to this poem :) :)

  8. Hi Michelle, I am so glad you are back with us again. Suppose you really had a good time with your granddaughter. I love your new tutorial but I do not agree with Santa: you never have too much stuff, it’s always too little! So many colours, and stamps, to be wished…….. Have a great day/night (always forget how’s about the time shifts…)

  9. I love the way you’ve made that shape with the photocorners & stars & the stamped border. What a striking card!

  10. I like what you did with the horse!! I had to check thet tutorial, to find it out…it give’s a beautiful atmosphere to your card……Love it!! :o)

  11. Bessey/Southport

    Loved the xmas poem, and I’m with you, you can never have too much stuff.

  12. Really like how you made the border on this card. You always come up with such creative ideas! That poem cracked me up…I will be sharing it with some friends who can relate :) Too funny!

  13. I love the glow on the horse on your card. And tonight I’m going to share that poem when I go to my Stampin Up Club monthly class. But I also confess that I finally have too much in my little room and I find it very difficult to keep it tidy now as I have no where to put things. So the shopping must end……….er……..slow down at least. 😀
    Take care!

  14. Your images are amazing Michelle! I can’t wait to try this one.

  15. I love this card but I will have to practice stamping around the edge of the circle. The poem is cute but what does Santa know… he’s not a stamper. Merry Christmas y’all.

  16. That’s quite the travel schedule! When will you come to Kansas City?!?!? I would love to take one of your classes!!!! Thanks for the chance to win this hostess set too. It’s one I don’t have and love!!!!

  17. I loved the horse tutorial but I loved the poem even more! That is tooo funny! For some reason my husband just shook his head and said, “that’s not funny” when I read it to him…but at least he didn’t say “that’s so true!”. lol! Jan Hoyt

  18. This was truely helpful, I appreciate it
