Stampin' Up! Over the Moon

Welcome to the Happy Inkin' Thursday blog hop. You're in for a treat if you have never visited before. It's a weekly challenge and this week we have a sketch challenge. This one was very difficult for me, but I tried. I can't wait to see what the other team members created.

I used the Over the Moon Stamp Set to create my card. This is such a great stamp set!

and here is the sketch...

No photo description available.

My card base is Whisper White. I embossed a piece of Basic Black card stock with the Hammered Metal 3D Embossing Folder.

I used the Classic Label Punch to create my Real Red mats, punching out four and gluing two together so they would be longer than the sentiments. Then I stamped my sentiments with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and punched them out.

The moon and stars are punched with the Twinkle Builder Punch. I colored the moon with my Daffodil and Pumpkin Pie Blends. The stars are Gold Glimmer paper.

I stamped my cow with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and used various colored Blends for her tail, locks of hair, spots, hooves and face.

There are no dies for the cow so you would have to fussy cut her. You could skip the background mat, which in this case I cut it out of a pattern from the From My Heart Specialty Designer Series Paper. The cow and moon are adhered with Dimensionals. Everything else is adhered with liquid glue.

The inside is unfinished as I have no idea how I'm going to use it. It could turn into a valentine card or an anniversary card. 

This is my third and final entry at Mod Squad - Get Your Animal Stamps Inky. That has been such a fun challenge.

I hope you enjoyed my card today and thank you for joining the hop. Clicking on the "next" button will take you to Eva Dobilas. Clicking on the names below will take you directly to the other team members and their projects.
