Merry Moose Stampin' Up! - Merry Christmoose Card

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you the card that I made during my Facebook Live last night.  My card features the Merry Moose Bundle from Stampin' Up!.  This was one of the hardest to get bundes last year during the Holiday Season. The Moose Punch Sold out so fast and kept selling out that it could not be keep in stock.  And looking at my card you can see why.  

This stamp Set and punch bundle is just so stinking cute!  I loved this set so much and didn't get a chance last year to showcase it because it kept selling out.  I am so excited that Stampin' Up! brought it back this year as a Returning Favorite in the August - December Mini Catalog.  I am also featuring this set in my Online monthly card club for October.  I will link to my club page here so you can find out all the details and to sign up.  Here's a look at the card I made last night during my Weekly Facebook Live.

I started out my card by cutting some Pear Pizzazz Cardstock down to 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and scored it at 4 1/4" to make my card base.  Most card bases are always a half a sheet of cardstock just cut in half either on the long side or the shorter side.  Next I added a piece of Real Red Cardstock cut at 3 3/4" x 5".

To my Real Red mat layer I added a piece of the Heartwarming Hugs Designer Series Paper (which by the way is on sale during the month of October as part of the Designer Series Paper Sale.)  The Heartwarming Hugs Designer Series Paper was cut at 3 1/2" x 4 3/4".  You can click here to take advantage of the Designer Series Paper Sale.

Next I took some scraps of Whisper White and Mossy Meadow Cardstocks to do the rest of the card.  I stamped the moose outline in Soft Suede Ink and then stamped the fill image off once and added it to the outline.  Then I used the matching Moose Punch to punch out my Moose.  I used another Scrap of Whisper White and my Mossy Meadow Scrap to create the labels.  The labels came from the Halloween Magic Dies, so you can totally use them for other projects other than Halloween; don't get caught up on the title and think you only have to use them for Halloween, they are perfect on other projects as well.  I ran the small and large label dies through my Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine.  I then stamped the large Pine Tree in Pear Pizzazz Ink onto the Whisper White Label.  I stamped it once full strength and then two more times reinking it and stamping off on my scratch paper to create a lighter shade and to make them look as if they are further away.

Next I added the Mossy Meadow label die cut to the front of my card with Stampin' Seal.  Before adding the Whisper White label I stamped my sentiment at the bottom in Real Red Ink and added a couple Red Basic Rhinestones.  I popped the label up onto the Mossy Meadow one with Stampin' Dimensionals.  I added a Stampin' Dimensional behind the moose's butt and add some Stampin' Seal to his head.  I placed him on the card front where his cute little butt was on the card base and the head was on the Whisper White label.  This adds even dimension to the card front.

CASE the Catalog - Merry Moose

Hello and welcome to this weeks Case the Catalog post; this week I picked a card featuring one of my favorite stamp set bundles.  I picked a card that can be found on page 27 of the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog.  In case you don't have a catalog and you missed the title I am Casing one of the Merry Moose cards on that page.  If you are not sure what I mean about CASE; it stands for Copy and Share Everything or Copy and Selectively Edit.  Here's a look at my card.

Here's a look at the card created by the concept artists at Stampin' Up! that inspired my card today.  This card can be found on page 27 of the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog.

You can see from both photos I did Copy and Selectively Edit my version of this card.  I went with a Very Vanilla card base (4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2 to make a top folding card) and layered a full size Balmy Blue layer on top (4 1/4 x 5 1/2).  There's was created with a side folding Balmy Blue cardbase.  Both versions are just as nice.  This is one thing about casing a card is you can take the idea and change it to your style.  I happen to prefer to make top folding cards.  
I went with the Very Vanilla card base so that I didn't have to add additional cardstock to the inside of the card.  This allows me to write my greeting with enough room.  I could have just added an additional layer but with that comes additional bulk to the card.
I stamped the solid image of the moose across the card front with matching Balmy Blue ink just as the catalog sample.  I also did the Moose outline on a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock with matching ink and punched it out with the matching punch.  I added the Real Red Curly Ribbon as a scarf and tied it around his little neck to secure it.  I then popped the moose punch out up on a few dimensionals.  I did change the width of the Call Me Clover sentiment banner and decided not to fish tail the ends as seen in the inspiration image.  This was also popped up on dimensionals. 
There are a few great things about CASEing that I hope you are learning from this bi-weekly series!  One, that you can find great ideas from the catalogs, they are more than just a shopping source.  The catalogs have a countless number of ideas for card making and paper crafting to copy and learn from.  And, two you can improve your skills by casing.  When you do this you not only have to figure out what was used but the sizes used, color combinations, and different techniques.  All of these things helps you to improve and build your card and paper crafting skills and makes you a better crafter.  Thanks for dropping by this week for this part of the CASEing bi-weekly series.  My hope is that you are learning a lot about the importance of doing this and that you are giving it a try each week.  I will see you again tomorrow.

Happy Stampin'
