{Horses and flowers - Using Let it Ride stamp set}

Well who would have guessed... me? Falling in love with a horse stamp set?!  I don't have anything against these beautiful creatures, I just wouldn't call myself a horsey person.  I have lots of friends who spend a lot of time riding, grooming, training and loving horses.  The test of these cards will be whether they appreciate my treatment of these images.



I wanted to try an technique that showed of the flowers from Perennial Birthday and thought they would look lovely as a frame around the horses.


So I stamped them with Memento Black Ink on to Smokey Slate card stock and used the Stampin Blends to colour the images in.

Here is the long video of this process


Here is the shorter version

{Stamping Sunday Blog Hop Night Before Christmas}

Hi there crafters, my name is Ruth and welcome to another...


Each month a team of creative demonstrators bring some fab ideas based on a set  or theme of products.

This month we are looking at the Night Before Christmas suite.


I choose the papers to purchase and play with.


I decided to make 3 items following a similar format. 

Here is a simple box decorated with the papers and coordinating colour card. I used the Stitched Stars Dies and leaf punches to cut additional embellishments.



Here is a card, this time with some elements cut out from the papers.




Finally a little bag ready to put a gift in.




Here is a video tutorial of how I cut and assembled everything
