If you have been following my blog for a while you know I am not into cute animal or people stamps. I think part of it is because I can not color to save my life and most of the cutesy stamps need coloring. Darling Donkeys is one of the stamp sets you can get for free during Sale-a-bration with a qualifying order. I placed my 2021 January – June Mini Catalog order and had enough to get a few of the free Sale-a-bration sets so I picked this stamp set. Now that I have it, I realized it is kind of cute and not that hard to color at all.
This is a CAS (clean and simple) card. I stamped the donkey in Memento Black Ink and then colored him using my Smoky Slate, Crumb Cake and Poppy Parade Stampin Blends. I decided he needed to be cut out to look better so I actually used a Scan ‘N Cut to do this. I am not very good at fussy cutting so the SNC worked pretty well. I adhered the donkey to a piece of Basic White cardstock that I had cut out using the Stitched Rectangle dies. If you own one set of dies, it has to be these. I use them all the time because they add a little interest to a plain rectangle and they come in so many different sizes. I stamped the sentiment in Memento Black Ink too and then layered everything on top of a piece of the Berry Delightful Designer Series Paper that is also in the Sale-a-bration Catalog and available to get for free with a qualifying order. Apparently the ribbon I used is retired but you could use any ribbon.
Remember, if you order the Stitched Rectangles, Memento Black Ink and a couple of Stampin Blends Combo Packs you could get the Darling Donkeys stamp set for free!
