Not Horsin Around!

                             Happy Thursday High Hopes Fans!

This week I've been horsin' around (pardon the pun) with another fun Valentine's Day stamp from High Hopes. 

I love that the sentiment is included although I had to rearrange my card making routine slightly....after all, I didn't have to find a place for the sentiment! It has been fun to have a bit of a challenge with the process. 



This week's card layout is based on an older challenge sketch from High Hopes. I have posted it below my card for you. I also chose to use some non-traditional Valentine's Day colours just for fun!




Here's the sketch I followed


I started my horsin' around by colouring my stamp with alcohol markers and then cutting it out with a classic circle die. The background cardstock was cut out using a circle cutter. I placed it on patterned paper from an older 6x6 paper collection from Echo Park. Some twine, banners and gumdrops (my fav) finish off my card.

  2. I love this stamp! I, too, am a horse person...plus a dog, cat, racoon....well, just ANIMAL person in general! he he. You did a great job of using the stamp within this sketch! It looks like the sentiment is actually attached to the animals, which makes it hard to use sometimes--you have to have just the right space, rather than being able to move the sentiments and image around to fit your needs. Great Job all around!!
