February SOM (Stamp of the Month) 2009 Moose - FEBRUARY NEW RELEASE
Here's a critter that's sure to be popular! The February 2009 Stamp of the Month set features the cutest moose. I can envision using this set over and over again with some of my other CDStamps. Who knows what the future holds for this guy? Wouldn't it be nice to see more of him in a regular set? By the way, SOM sets are free with with your $50 or more purchase and a new set is offered every month.
I did the birthday Moose card as matchbook card. If you look carefully you can see the shadow where the scalloped edges close at the bottom. I also love how I was able to repeat the designer paper on his birthday hat. Luckily for me I had the perfect shades of Copic markers to match. Both the circle and the moose are popped up with foam.
The second moose card was inspired by Laurie Wilson's (Clearly Delightful) cloud technique. It was very easy to make the clouds and it really helped to add that extra dimension that I was looking for. What you might not notice in this picture is the addition texture that I added with my Scor-pal. Even with the uneven lines of the Flannel Background stamp adding the straight score lines worked out fine. To accentuate the scoring I also smudge on black chalk ink.
I hope you are having a wonderfully blessed day. I am going to sneak off and take a nap while I can. I am SO TIRED! I guess that's what happens when you stay up too late and your daughter gets up early. ;-) What a blessing to be home!!!
