Moose on the loose...

I was just thinking of my dad today and missing him, so I decided to whip up a quick card to tell him that. Since my moose hadn't seen any ink yet, it seemed like a perfect time to pull it out and use it. I made this from scraps... I just liked the way the patterned paper worked with the Marigold Card stock, so I worked around that. I goofed though -- after I adhered the chocolate card stock down to the light green, I remembered that I wanted to mount it all on a sliver of red...but since I already had it down, I decided to leave it. Dad won't know, and I think it is subtler this way. What do you think? Should I make another one with red?

I realized after I made the card that there is a flower in the set exactly like this one! I could have made my own BG paper. Still, I like the way this turned out!


Boy, did that greeting ("Moose you so much") give me fits -- I mounted it separate from the moose, and it is so small -- too small -- and it took me a few tries to get it lined up for the punch. I'm happy with the end result, though...


I made other things, too -- but I can't show you. I had a burst of inspiration over the past three days, and although I should be attending to other aspects of the Newsletter, I am creating techniques like a madwoman! That happens to me; I will have weeks where I discover many new things, and those where the well is dry... You gotta tap into the well while the ideas are flowing! It KILLS me not to show any of it though!


Here is a little sneak preview of one of the techniques that will be in the August Technique Junkie Newsletter. It is being mailed later this week.... I will post the whole card by Thursday.



I can't wait to create again after the newsletter is in the mail! I'm livin' for Wednesday : )

Hi there! You wrote: Boy, did that greeting ("Moose you so much") give me fits -- I mounted it separate from the moose, and it is so small -- too small -- and it took me a few tries to get it lined up for the punch. I'm happy with the end result, though...

So, am I understanding that you punched first, then stamped the little saying onto the punch piece? It's easier to just stamp it first, then punch it out. Flip the punch over (upside down) and hold it so you can position the punch hole over your stamped image, then punch away... Just a hint that I hope eases some frustration!
