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.
