Christmas Moose

Hi everyone,

I have some exciting news!!  As you know, I am a member of the Design Team for Addicted to Stamps & More Challenge blog.  There is now a new "sister" Challenge Blog to ATS&M .... Addicted to CAS.

The first challenge for the new blog is on Nov. 17th ... with challenges running every other Saturday.  Kylie (founder) has secured a prize for the CAS PERFECTIONIST for each challenge.  I told you it was exciting news!!  I hope you'll check out the link above to the new challenge blog and take a look.  And ... I hope you'll join in on the new challenges which start in three weeks.

On to today's card ... which combines two challenges from this week ... CAS-ual Fridays (CFC76 Kraft On) and CAS-ology (#16 - Cue word:  Wild).  I couldn't think of anything for the wild card ... but then I remembered that I bought a Kittie Kit last year called "The Moose Is Loose".  I think the moose wrapped up in Christmas lights is simply adorable!  Love the grin on his face! :)

I love Kraft (or Crumb Cake which is what I used) and red together.  Such a great color combo.  I added some green stickles to the Christmas lights, but not sure it shows up well in the photo.  It's very dark and rainy here today ... and hard to get a good picture.  IRL I'm happy with how this turned out.  Hope you like too!

"Christmas Moose"


Stamps:  The Moose is Loose (Kittie Kits - Rubbernecker Stamps); Merriment (SU!)
Paper:  Crumb Cake, Real Red (SU!)
Ink:  Black, Soft Suede, Gumball Green, Real Red, Whisper White (SU!)
Accessories & Tools:  Blender pen, Stamp-a-ma-jig, green stickles, 3/8" red stitched ribbon, adhesives, glue dot, and dimensionals



I used the blender pen and soft suede ink to color in the moose.  I also used the blender pen with Whisper White ink to color in the fur on his hat and his eyes ... wasn't sure that it was going to work, but it did!  Added stickles to the lights to make them shiny ... hard to see, but better in the close-up view below.

Here's a close-up of the moose:
