Dream Big With Over The Moon

by Joanne James11. July 2019 20:00

I've had a busy day today with laundry, a visit from Granny and Ben had a friend over and this afternoon. We all went to the cinema to see the movie 'Yesterday' (I can highly recommend it) so no time to craft today but lucky for you I have a card to share with you that I made earlier this week that I'm also linking up with the team over at Paper Craft Crew:

Paper Craft Crew Designer's Choice Challenge PCC343

I couldn't resist another chance to play with my new 'Over The Moon' stamp set and wanted to make a card that was full-on bovine - take a look:


Here's the low-down on today's card:

Dream Big - This is another of the cute cows in this fun set; I can't say I've ever seen a cow daydreaming in the fields like this, but then I haven't see a cow wearing wellies either as per my previous card so I guess there's a first time for everything! I stamped my cow on a horizontal panel and fussy cut his thought bubble and added a clear rhinestone for a little extra detail. 

Create Your Own Cow Hide - I decided to go all-out on my cow card today and create a fun bespoke cow-hide patterned background for the base of my card. I think the finished effect is really fun and was actually so easy to create; can you tell what stamps I used? You may be surprised to know that it was these two background splodges from the 'Love What You Do' stamp set - so perfect for cow hide:


Fresh Colour Combo - I used a fresh blue and green scenic colour combo today with just a pop of red to compliment my black and white cow. This is a fun colour combo that would work for lots of other projects too - here it is if you'd like to save it for future use:


Here is the visual summary of the key products used on today's project for you to pin for easy reference:


You can see all of my 'How To' summaries on my 'How To - Tips and Techniques' Pinterest board in case you've missed any. 

Enjoy your evening and I'll be back tomorrow with another project. Until then, happy stampin'!
