Trending Tuesday - Moo Cards

Hello everyone, and welcome back to this month's edition of Trending Tuesday with Altered Pages, wherein we will feature the amazing, and somewhat mysterious, Moo Card.  Why mysterious?  Because it is a mystery to most of us what in the world Moo cards are.  I found this one definition online:  
A 1 1/8 x 2 3/4 inch card, originally named for the company that started printing cards in this format.
Well, there you have it.  It is a simple as that.   While we continue to cross-promote with Unruly Paper Arts and  Leaky Shed, the entire design team at Altered Pages is going to feature art work using this format, along with the Unruly Paper Arts' theme of Teacups and Tiaras, and Leaky Shed's  chipboard tiaras and teacups.

So, in keeping with the theme, here are my Moo cards.  Tea anyone?

Supplies used:
Altered Pages collage sheets:  AP-3033 More Moo Backgrounds;  AP-701 Victorian TeaAP-3032 Tea Party Flowers
Leaky Shed Crown Set
Black chipboard
Rhinestone gem stickers
Gold Encore, Brilliance Platinum Planet ink pads
Gold gilder's paste
Charcoal pencil

Here a a few individual close-ups of each card.

You will see a lot of beautiful artwork by the Altered Pages design team this month using this theme.  I hope you will take a moment to visit their blogs and be prepared to be inspired.  There is a direct link to each designer at the  Altered Pages Blog.  And if you are inspired to try your creative hand at these tiny bits of art, Altered Pages has all the supplies you need to make them.  

Thanks for stopping by, and have a wonderful, creative week!
