Horse Frontier thank you card by Stampin Up and me


Hi dear Stampers.

Welcome back to my blog.

I am so excited that I was able to play a little this morning

 with my new 'Horse Frontier' Clear mount Stampin Up stamp set.

It is so so gorgeous.



I love the sentiments that came with it.

If you know me, than you know that I love a simple life.

It doesn't need to be fancy..

As long as there is love and respect, natural beauty and compassion in our home

than we're good!




I created this card with 2 challenges in mind.

The first one is CAS-ual Fridays, Challenge #87..

Their theme of this week is:  'Make Your Mark.; and they are encouraging us to use our markers.

I love my markers. I used one of my Stampin Up markers to colour on the rubber of the sentiment of this card. I find that it makes the stamped sentiment look just a little different than when I just stamp it on the ink pad.

When I colour on the rubber with my marker, I can control where I want  my ink to be darker or lighter. It is fun, you should try it out.

I am not sure if you can see the result as well as you would in real life.. But .. it's there.. Some letters and words are more out there than others. I like that.


 There really is a little cowboy in all of us! This beautifully designed, four-piece stamp set is perfect for creating cards and projects for the horse lovers and equestrians in your life. Masculine set is also great for farm-themed projects--or for pages and cards where you want to create the look and feel of the Old West.

  1. What a beautiful image, Pauline!! The horse is so magnificent and strong. And I love the sentiment that you chose as well. I completely glossed over this set - I can see this set for a very good friend of mine. I also love the scalloped border you added with the happy pop of color in the button.

    Hope you have a wonderful day!
