Inspired by Mojo Monday #478 and Simon Says Stamp Monday (Start Afresh), I pulled out my Mini Pony Party stamp set. It was an exclusive set released during the Stampember promotion from Simon Says Stamp last fall. Since I love the adorable ponies from The Greeting Farm so much, I couldn't resist, but I was in the middle of Christmas cards when I received my order, so the stamp set got pulled aside. Until today, when I was finally able to ink it. After pulling out some My Mind's Eye papers for my previous card, I found some candy-colored sparkly ones that I thought would make a nice pair with my Little Pony. The images didn't work for any themes I have on my "to-do" stamping list, but my colleagues mentioned they sometimes are looking for cards they can all sign and give as a group, so I decided to stamp "All Our Wishes" to make it a group or family card for a change. The word "wishes" was die-cut three times out of Lost Lagoon cardstock and layered, then covered with Crystal Effects for a glossy look.
The pony was stamped on Whisper White cardstock, colored and die-cut with the Stitched Shapes Framelits Stampin' Up! is currently offering as a preview release. The flowers from the same stamp set were also colored and die-cut using the matching dies, then popped on the left side of the image. I had recently found in my stash a leftover from an Artisan Accents kit SU! had a couple of years ago and decided to use one of the roses with the stamped flowers. I had also found at the same time some older flower sequins in the same box, so I used some of those on the card as well. It was nice to get some mileage out of older supplies by combining them with newer items.
