Moose on the Loose!
Here's a card made from another March 1 release from Clear Dollar Stamps. This one's called "Moose Friends" and in addition to being totally adorable it's also super versatile...and like ALL of Clear Dollar's stamps, it's a tremendous value: 13 stamps, including 8 sentiments, for $7.99. And if there are any of you still left out there who haven't worked with them yet (living under a rock, maybe...hee, hee!), you should know they are high-quality and stamp out a nice, clean image every time! Well, that's my sales pitch for today. Now on to the card details:

Stamps: Clear Dollar Stamps "Moose Friends"
CS: Papertrey Ink "Stampers Choice White"; SU "Gable Green", "Riding Hood Red", "Chocolate Chip"
DP: Scenic Route; DaisyD
Inks: Staz-On "Jet Black"; Ranger Distress "Broken China", "Peeled Paint", "Walnut Stain"
Markers: Copics
Dies: Nestabilities Large Classic Circles; Labels One
Ribbon: Offray "Lemongrass"; Making Memories Paperie "Mocha"
Embellishments: Pebbles, Inc. Candy Dots "White"; Ranger Distress Stickles "Worn Lipstick", "Vintage Photo"
Tools & Supplies: Printworks Cloud Stencil; Fiskars Border Punch "Threading Water"; foam adhesive

Unfortunately, you don't get the glitter effect of the Stickles on this sweet guy's cheeks, antlers & hooves (maybe with my next camera!). To make the grassy hill, I cut & embossed a label the same size as the cloudy background but this time from the green cardstock, cut out the bottom half along a curvy line, then sponged the edges with the "Peeled Paint" Distress Ink. And everything else, I think, is obvious!

Thanks for checking in with me today...I hope to be back tomorrow with a third creation using yet another March release set from Clear Dollar. In the meantime, I'm gonna try & stay warm...it's gonna get down to nearly ZERO tonight here in Western PA. WHERE is Spring??!?
