My Moose Madness!

I am an avid moose collector! My home has a moose theme throughout the living room, dining room and kitchen.  My family and friends seem to know what to buy me and I have received plenty of moose gifts over the years.  I even have a separate moose tree at Christmas with all moose themed ornaments!!

When I saw that Hanna Stamps had released a bunch of moose stamps, with the super cool name of Riley, I headed right on over! I ordered the Riley  with the cupcake and the one flying the airplane! How darn cute can you get?


I have been seeing a lot of Riley's that have been paper pieced.  I had never done paper piecing before so what a great time to give it a try.  I stamp 2 Riley's - one on watercolor paper and one onto designer paper (BasicGrey 2 Scoops) and cut out all the parts of the chair. After I colored in Riley with my only 2 colors of Copic markers that I have (bought especially for him - Sepia and Sand)  I  taped the dp's pieces on top of the coloored in Riley. Tah Dah! I just LOVE how it matches.  I'm all about the matching! lol!!

I thought Riley needed some more dimension so I stamped another Riley, colored him in and than just cut his head out and popped him up with none other than Dimensionals!
