Holiday Horsin’ Around!

Isn’t this just the cutest little Hobby Horse ever!  I was inspired by Jackie Topa’s hobby horse on Stampin’ Connection, the stamper’s showcase on the demonstrator website.  The top of the horse is actually a holiday stocking stamped from Stampin’ Up!’s new Stitched Stockings stamp set and then punched out with the coordinating Stocking Builder Punch. I love it!  His mane is made from Early Espresso Baker’s Twine and the stick itself is a little red coffee stirrer that I covered in sticky strip and then dipped in Dazzling Diamonds glitter. How’s that for being creative?! I then wrapped the stick in Early Espresso 1/8″ Taffeta Ribbon. And how about that Red Glimmer Paper!! Absolutely gorgeous!

Supplies:  Stamp Set:  Stitched Stockings and Four the Holidays; Cardstock:  Early Espresso, Crumb Cake, and Very Vanilla; Ink:  Early Espresso; Accessories:  Big Shot, Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Stocking Builder Punch, 1/8″ Early Espresso Taffeta Ribbon, Basic Pearls, Early Espresso Bakers Twine, Sticky Strip, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Dazzling Diamonds, Red Glimmer Paper and Red Coffee Stirrer.
