Moo-ving Right Along




If you've never tried to create moos or scraplings, now is the time. The latest Rebel Challenge - Slender Benders--Scraplings and Moos continues until July 7, 2013. Join the challenge for a chance to win a $15.00 voucher to the RRD store.

This was another new experience for me. I had seen moos before, but I never tried to create them. These little art forms (1 1/8" x 2 3/4") are a lot of fun to create.

My first moo features my favorite little cat from the RRD stamp set, Just Sayin'. I first stamped the cat; then I masked it and stamped the floral pattern behind him. I added a little color and edged the moo with antique bronze distress stain.

My next moo uses the Nature Notes RRD stamp set. I stamped a portion of the trees on my card stock using Ranger's embossing ink.  Then I heat embossed the image using Powder Keg white orchid embossing powder. I love the sparkle in the embossing. I stamped Carpe Diem on a separate piece of cardstock, cut out the individual words as word blocks, outlined them with black soot distress stain, and adhered them to the moo.  The moo was then edged with the bronze distress stain.

The third moo features the RRD stamp set Floriculture. I simply stamped the flowers and the word on the card. The color was added using distress markers. I finished it off by edging the card with the distress bronze stain.
