Do YOU Moo???


The challenge over at Wednesday Stamper this week is to create eensie weensie "Moo Cards." I'd never heard of them before. LAST week's challenge was FISH, so my first thought was "I had no FISH stamps for last week's challenge, and NOW I have no COW stamps!"

But that's not what these little things are all about. They're simply created on a TINY base of 2.8" by 1.1." I created mine as little cards that open. They may be tiny, but they were a HUGE challenge for me! The Eiffel Tower card has the SU Cheesecloth stamped background underneath acetate onto which I printed the image, and stamped a 7gypsies sentiment. I also scanned my own Canadian passport and miniaturized it, and added it to the Eiffel Tower image in Photoshop.

This "Thoughts of You" card uses an image from ArtChix and two tiny Michael's stamps coloured with Sakura Glaze pens, and some freehand doodling and dots.




This pensive little girl was printed on ecru cardstock, the HA stamp is done on acetate with Top Boss Gold EP, and the "Missing You" is a mini HA stamp in Brilliance Moonlight White.



Now just for fun, I'm posting them again beside this 5 1/2" by 4 1/2" card just for comparison purposes, so you can see how TINY they are! I can see using these as little interactive surprise elements inside cards!

Such FUN challenges at Wednesday Stamper, hope you make your way over there and join in!

Thanks again for visiting my blog.

WOW these are so cute! I might have to try these moo-cards...I am from the Dairy State...LOL! I really like the challenge of working on a small card- the funny thing is that it takes just as much time to make a tiny card as it does to make a big one!

i love how you made a folded card of it... this way it goes wonderfully for a gift add-on or a seat reservation...

Hi Deborah. I just found your blog from a link in a post from Godelieve. So glad you've joined the blogging craze! For some reason I cant get any updates via google reader. I tried adding a subscription but it isnt giving any updates. Hmmm. I'll just have to remember to stop by now and again. Adelle
