Today we have the cutest stamp set to share with you 'Hearty Horse':
The horse image is quite large and perfect for colouring. And I've always loved this font for the sentiments as it has teeny tiny hearts among the letters. For my card I actually didn't use the horse, I was inspired by the little hearts in the set:
You knew I had to fit some rainbow colours on at least one of my New Release cards!!
I started by cutting a panel of light grey CS and adhering to the card front. I find its a great neutral for bright colours. I then used the 'Ornament Tag Fri-Dies' to die-cut two circles from white CS. This is where it took quite a long time....
As the little heart is solid and I wanted to make sure I got a good stamp impression, I used my MISTI to stamp each of these hearts twice each. I used my favourite Waffle Flower inks and just eye-balled each time I moved the stamp, trying to get them close together and to the outer edge of the circle. Its not perfect but love the effect.
All I had to do then was adhere the circles to some white foam and stack on top of each other. The sentiment was white heat embossed on black CS, fussy cut out and put on some foam tape. And for a bit of bling I glued on some Studio Katia pearls.
I hope this gives you some ideas on how to use your smaller stamps as we tend to forget about those. All of the new release stamp sets are available to purchase right now and you can use my special code to save yourself 15%!!
