Newton’s Nook – Galloping By…

Hi everyone! I’m hanging out at the Newton’s Nook blog today sharing a thinking of you card featuring some older products you might have in your stash and a cool design that can be adapted many ways.

For this card, I stamped the horse and horseshoe from Neigh and colored them with my copic markers. Then I thought it would be nice to have something else in the “scene” so I also pulled out Moo and borrowed the hay bail from there. I used the coordinating dies to cut out my images and set them aside.

I’ve been really into beachy, summery, happy colors lately so I chose 3 that made me smile and cut 1/4 inch strips. I glued them to a white panel and die cut the whole thing with the largest die in the Framework die set. Then I came in with the serene stripes stencil and blended a light teal ink on the lower left and upper right of my panel. Then I place the panel in my MISTI and stamped the first half of my sentiment in the lower right.

I glued one hay bail down with liquid glue and popped the horse, horseshoe and second hay bail up with foam squares. Next, I created a white card base and adhered a light teal panel to the front. Then, using the same ink as the stencil, I stamped the finishing portion of my sentiment and another horse on the inside.

Finally, I added foam tape to my framework panel and popped it on the front of my card and moved on to a few simple finishing touches. I like adding black glaze pen to critter eyes, then I went back in and added a white gel pen highlight after that was dry. I also added glossy accents to the horse’s nose and hooves and the horseshoe too.

Just a fun, happy, thinking of you card, perfect for horse lovers in your life or anyone really. It’s just cute!
