I think I have been doing a lot of counting sheep lately because the Counting Sheep stampset and dies have been my favorite Sale-a-bration freebie to play with this week. Needing a customer appreciation card for September, a "thank ewe" card would surely fit the bill!

So, let's make this card!!!

Garden Green
Smoky Slate

Stampsets and Dies:
Counting Sheep stamps and dies (*Sale-a-bration) 
Playful Alphabet dies

Cardstock and DSP:
Mossy Meadow
So Saffron
Balmy Blue
Beautifully Penned DSP (*Sale-a-bration) 
Early Espresso

  • Cut cardstock:
            Mossy Meadow 5½ x 8½- fold in half for cardbase (landscape)
            So Saffron 5¼ x 4
            DSP 5¼ x 1½ 
            Balmy Blue 3¼ x 3¾
  • Die cut the fence from Early Espresso.
  • Die cut the letters from Mossy Meadow.
  • Stamp the sheep in Smoky Slate and die cut.
  • Emboss the sheep using the Hammered Metal folder. (I left his face stick out the side of the folder so it wasn't embossed.)

  • Color the sheep with Stampin' Blends- Ivory and Gray Granite.
  • Stamp the grass with Garden Green.
  • All pieces were adhered using glue except the sheep which was adhered with dimensionals.
  • Add some bling using colored rhinestones.

*During Sale-a-bration (until 9/30/2021 or while supplies last), you can get the Counting Sheep stampset, the Sheep Dies and the Beautifully Penned DSP for free for each $50 that you spend!

(contains cardstock, vellum, dsp, ribbon, and gold leaf)

The Delicate Dahlias stampset is FREE during Sale-a-bration (ending 9/30/2021) or while supplies last.  Dahlias are so beautiful on their own, but when you add in my favorite colors (Blackberry Bliss and Pear Pizzazz) it is even better.  As if that wasn't enough, add some gold leafing and the faux alcohol ink designer series paper and it takes it to a whole new level!
