Interesting title, isn't it? My list of "stuff" wanted could go on and on and on!!!!! LOL But that's not what this post is all about. Too bad though. Or maybe not. I'm not sure I want to actually see a list of all the things I want. I do know that I would need a 1000 foot room to keep most of it in!! The indoor stuff that is!!! LOL

Ok, onto the real "Wanted!" I used the Stampin' Up! "Wanted" set to make these cards. One I made at our DIVA event and the other I made using the newest decorative papers. Berry Bliss of course!!! One of the DIVA's in our group, I won't mention her name (ok Carrina?? LOL) just LOVES this Berry Bliss paper pack. It is fabulous. Many times I will find one side of the decorative papers that I find extremely challenging but the pages in this pack are all wonderful and SO easy to work with.

I do like the lighter colored one better. That was done before the "Linen" background was retired. I REALLY miss that background. I did get the new "Twill" background but I haven't had time to play with it yet.

The camera really made the pink come out on the Berry Bliss paper. In person it's not as bright and does go well with the Really Rust. Trust me on that one. I'm not one for mixing pink and orange together. I grew up being told they don't go together but there are times when it can be done!!! I think I did it this time!! These are great masculine cards. It's difficult to get some fun masculine cards that are quick and easy to make.

For the "running" horse look I stamped the horse upside down and moved it over, stamped again, moved it over and stamped again without reinking. I had to do it upside down because doing it facing me I couldn't see to get the horse right. I was stamping backwards and I just couldn't do it. It was awkward and uncomfortable. But turning the card stock around it felt SO natural. I LOVE the scallop punch. And with this set it just added a nice touch to the card that wasn't too frilly for the guys!!! SO quick and VERY fun!!!

Both of these cards are made entirely with Stampin' Up! products.

Thank you SO much for stopping by,

Great idea for stamping the horse upside many times I have been frustrated because I can't see "where I'm going"! I'll pass that along! Thanks!

Beautiful cards, Wanda! I just Love the "running horse", and had to giggle when you told of how it went against your nature to stamp right to left! I can see how it would feel awkward!
Anyway, nice stuff!!!

The shadowing of the horses is really neat, great job with that. I love both of the cards!
