August Giveaway Starts Today... Moose Card & Video!

Hello and welcome!

It's been a busy summer here in Alaska but Fall seems just around the corner... as evidenced by the return of the moose! *See the dancing moose video at the end of this post that I took a week ago!*

My card today features a stamp by a local Alaskan company called Misty Mountain Rubber Stamps out of Juneau, Alaska. I love their stamps because they are high quality and Alaska themed! I stamped the moose in Ranger Archival Jet Black ink and masked him off to stamp the pine trees from the Stampin' Up set "Lovely as a Tree". I did some second generation stamping first to make the trees lighter in color compared to the moose. I doodled in the ground so he has something to walk on! I found this "I moosed you" stamp at a thrift store and it's perfect for my moose-themed cards! I wanted to keep it simple but it still needed a little something so I added black dots with my Copic multi-liner pen. I rounded the corners and he's done! A clean and simple one layer card for anyone! It's for sale at my booth at the local Friday Fling art market (or contact me to purchase it if you don't live in Alaska and  any other cards I show, if available. Cards are $6 and that includes a stamped envelope to mail it to your recipient and shipping it to you)!

AUGUST GIVEAWAY INCLUDES: Colorbox ink stack; Hero Arts "Cupcakes" stamp set (one stamp is stained but works perfectly!), Cuttlebug "Snowfakes" embossing folder, Fruit Punch Stickles and die set below.

AUGUST GIVEAWAY INCLUDES: Lifestyle Crafts/Quikutz Drink Sleeve die set (I only have three of six dies).
