HOW FUN WAS THIS?? Well let me just tell you! Today on SplitCoast the Ways to use it challenge was to use spices from our spice racks. Well, I really didn't think that I'd find anything and I ended up finding quite a few things! But for this card I only used mustard seeds. Here's how I made this card:

On Very Vanilla cardstock I adhered some Terrifically Tacky Tape and "smushed" the mustard seeds into the tape so they would stick very well. From there I off-set matted that with Close to Cocoa cardstock and Chocolate Chip cardstock.

For the main image I stamped the horse from the Wanted stamp set into Versamark then into Chocolate Chip ink. I added clear embossing powder and heat set it. I used the brayer with Creamy Caramel, then Close to Cocoa and then Chocolate Chip. I then used an Inkadinkado stamp set for the grasses with Chocolate Chip. I cut the main image into an oval shape using my Creative Memories oval cutter and added the mats to it.

The background was stamp mutltiple times. First with Creamy Caramel ink for the paisley stamp, then Close to Cocoa for the stars and then Creamy Caramel for the Sanded stamp.

I added the brads, oval sentiment and ribbon for a finishing touch.

Happy Stamping!
