Let It Ride – PDF Tutorial

[vc_row][vc_column width="2/3"][vc_column_text][/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]Today’s card was designed using the Stampin’ Up! Let It Ride Stamp Set.  This stamp set is a beauty!!  

I grew up showing horses and some of my fond memories are horse shows and 4H.  I love the sentiments in this set too.  We all need to remember to “Live as if someone left the gate open.”

You’ll notice this horse was shaded too.  I love, love coloring with our Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers.  I’ve shared a written tutorial below.  Feel free to download this FREE Tutorial.

Thanks for stopping by Brandy’s Cards.  Let me know if you have any questions. I’m always glad to help.  

Happy Stamping!! Brandy[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width="1/3"][vc_column_text][/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]

Cut a 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ piece of Whisper White Cardstock  and fold it in half.  This is your card base.

2. Use Mossy Meadow Ink to stamp your tree line along the bottom of the card.

Tip: To create a variation in light and dark color you want to stamp it once and continue to stamp the tree line without inking the stamp. This will create a variation in color. 

3. Cut a 4-1/4″ x 3-3/4″ piece of Early Espresso Cardstock.  

4. Cut a 4″ x 3-1/2″ piece of Crumb Cake Cardstock.  Center and layer this piece on top of your Early Espresso Cardstock.

Horse Shoes – Smokey Slate

Grass – Mossy Meadow

3. Once your horse is colored center and adhere it to the top of your Crumb Cake Cardstock. 

Tip: Use a few stampin dimensionals to pop up your image off the Crumb Cake Cardstock.  This gives your card a bit of dimension.

5. Stamp your sentiment in Mossy Meadow above your trees.  [/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_empty_space][dt_fancy_title title="Inside of Card" title_align="left" title_size="h3"][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]1.

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Today’s card was designed using the Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Bouquet Stamp Set.  I really enjoyed creating with this set because there are so many color combinations and various flower arrangements you can make.  

You’ll also notice I created a simple pocket for the inside of the card.  The pocket was originally designed for my February Host Code Gift – Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots; however, you can put a gift card, money or a pack of wild flower seeds in the pocket.   You can change the message or leave off the pocket and send a beautiful bouquet note.


To embellish the card a bit further I added the  Bitty Flower Punch, Jewel Rhinestones and Whisper White Bakers Twine Bow. This set is just is so much fun and good news… its carrying over to the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog. Yippee!!!
