Merry Moose Pair Says Hello

When I invest my money in  a new stamp set there are several things that make me especially pleased with my purchase.  One is when there is a coordinating die or punch to help make my life easier and the other is when I find a way to stretch my use of the set.  That's why I'm really glad I invested in Stampin'UP!'s Merry Moose stamp set and matching Moose Punch

Card made with Stampin'UP!'s Merry Moose Stamp Set and Moose Punch and Copper Foil Paper
This is perfect for anyone who loves the woods and the outdoors.
Its perfect for masculine cards, but its versatile enough to use for anyone.

There are several ways to stretch the use of the Merry Moose Stamp Set and Punch.
  1. Instead of using designer paper you can use one of the stamps to create your own background
  2. When you punch an image you can be flexible with the direction it faces.
    don't you LOVE that copper paper?  
Here's similar card with just one moose.

Card made with Stampin'UP!'s Merry Moose Stamp Set and Moose Punch and Copper Foil PaperI really do love the copper paper 
and it makes a great frame for the moose focal point.

Here's a trick

instead of using a large piece of the copper sheet as a frame, I simply backed the moose focal point with 4 small strips of the copper paper.  It was a great way to use up small scraps and gives an really interesting look to the frame.

As long as we're talking tricks, did you notice the rhinestones on the two cards?  The first card with the pair of moose I just used the plain rhinestone. For the second card with the single moose I colored the rhinestone to match the copper paper.  You can color the plastic rhinestones with an alcohol marker like Stampin Blends.  It's an easy way to get a professional coordinated look to your projects.


I've really had fun with the moose set and ended up making
over 2 dozen moose cards which you can see in this short video
