Moon Cheese

Hey Friends!  Katie here with a super fun (AND TASTY) card today. 

Maybe I was creating with my stomach… who knows, but when I got my hands on this new Crater Layers Stencil, I instantly thought, “the moon is made of cheese!”  So you can guess where this might be going.  😉

Here was my first attempt at making a moon scene.  I was going for cheddar here.  

To make this:

  • I started with my stencil layers using distress inks and my Trinity Blending Buddy.  Once I had the moon, then I went for the sky with other distress inks.  I also added a few comets and a planet using the Interplanetary Stencil
  • Next, I splattered some water on the scene and as chance would have it a splashed a big blob on the sky.  A little disappointing as it washed out some of the color and warped my layer, but life happens!
  • Next, I stamped and colored the mice from the Mouse House stamp set, they are the perfect critters for this cheese scene.  I used the Mouse House Dies to cut them out. 
  • I placed them in my scene jumping into or out of the craters and have them holding The Big Cheese Clay Sprinkle embellishments. 
  • I also added some stars in the sky using Itty Bitty Black Stars.
  • I added the sentiment on a bit of yellow CS and placed it in the upper right.  It is also from Mouse House. 
  • Lastly, I mounted it on a white base. 

Here is the Blue Cheese version.

I like this one a teensy bit better because the colors pop a bit more.  The process was the same, but I used blue distress inks for my moon.  Instead of blue comets, I have white pigment ink here.  For the sentiment and asteroids I used the brand new Otter Space Stamp set. 

I hope you enjoyed these cheesy (WINK) cards!  If you are hungry now, feel free to go grab lunch!  If you want to see a full list of supplies, visit me on my blog
