Joy Clair October Blog Hop

Welcome to the Joy Clair October Release Blog Hop!!

You should have arrived her from Cornelia's blog

If you should get lost along the way you can always go to the Joy Clair October Blog Hop and start over.

Here are the new stamps sets released for October

For the October Joy Clair Blog Hop I have picked the Merry Christmoose stamp set to use to make my card.

Here is my card using the Merry Christmoose stamp set:


Kraft card stock 
White Neenah paper
Black ink
Christmas Lights embossing powder
Watercolor pencils
Green distress inks:  Bundled Sage, Peeled Paint, Iced Spruce 
Taylored Expressions Build a Scene die
Copic marker Cool Shadow

For this A2 card I started with Kraft card stock for the base of my card. Then I stamped the Moose from the Joy Clair Merry Christmoose stamp set with black ink onto white neenah paper, colored it with watercolor pencils and then fussy cut it out.  I took another piece of neenah paper and stamped the Tree from the Merry Christmoose stamp set in different colors of green distress ink and added that to the base of my card.  I cut out some more white neenah paper using the Taylored Expressions Build a Scene die, colored the top of them with  Cool Shadow Copic marker and then attached them to the card.  Next I used VersaMark to stamp the sentiment onto the card and heat embossed it with Christmas Lights embossing powder and lastly I attached the moose onto the card.
