Happy Moo Year!

For the second time this month I used the Cow over the Moon digi stamp. I created a card by combining that stamp which can be found here with the fireworks digi stamp which can be found in the Patriotic Duck Stamp 2 collection here to create this New Years card.  I used my Gimp 2 free program to digitally color these stamps, which is a first for me, and also used markers to enhance them slightly. I used a glue pen and embossing powder to create the silver sentiment.  I printed my image twice so that I could use foam tape to pop up the cow and star.  I added a few glitter felt stars left over from my last project to add a bit more sparkle. I wish everyone the happiest of 'moo' years!

Moon & Star Ornaments

I like to add a few new ornaments to my Christmas Tree every year.  This year I have been feeling less than energetic so I made very simple ornaments using A.J.'s Digi Shoppe's Cow over the moon digi stamp (minus the cow) as the template.  You can find digi's from the 'Hey Diddle Diddle' collection here.  I printed the stamp onto regular cardstock then cut out the images and traced around them onto some stiff, glittery felt I found at my local Dollarstore.  I glued the stars onto the moons and used some wrapping cord from the Dollarstore as a hanger. This is very simple and could be done by children and yet the finished effect is quite pretty and will be a nice addition to our tree this year.
