Hello everyone! Today is another Stamp Off Challenge. This time our challenge is called “Down On The Farm”. I looked through all my stamp sets and could not find one that had anything to do with a farm. Then I realized that one of the Sale-a-bration stamp sets is called Counting Sheep. Perfect! There are actually TWO Sale-a-bration items I used. One is the stamp set and the other is the coordinating dies called Sheep Dies. You can get both of these for free with a qualifying order. Even better!
To make this card I first stamped the sheep in Smoky Slate using Memento Black Ink. At this point I have to admit I had some help with an idea for this card. Diana Gibbs did a video showing how she used a gel pen and drew curls all over her sheep. I thought this was just adorable so I CASEd (Copy And Share Everything) her using her great gel pen idea. I also used her rosy cheek suggestion using a Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends. Then I cut it out using the coordinating die from the Sheep Dies.
After this, one thing led to another. I decided that my sheep looked like she was performing so I decided she was singing. Therefore, I used the Merry Melody Embossing Folder for my background with Basic White card stock. This folder is in the 2021 July – December Mini Catalog. Then I decided she should be singing on top of the cute little fence that comes with the Sheep Dies so I cut that out using Cinnamon Cider card stock. The card still looked a little plain so I added the sun/moon behind her using a piece of Sweet Symmetry Designer Series Paper and backed it with a piece of Cinnamon Cider card stock using the Layering Circles Dies. I cut the clouds out in Basic White also using the Sheep Dies. Lastly I added the Flirty Flamingo flower to her with a Champagne Rhinestone. I popped the sheep and clouds up using a Dimensional.
The sentiment is from the Free As A Bird stamp set.
Now, let’s go see what Buffy and Jackie used for their farm.
Don’t forget you can get this cute Counting Sheep stamp set and Sheep Dies for free with a qualifying order during the month of September. Hurry because when they sell out, they will be gone for good.
Susan, this is a GREAT card. I love that circle background that frames the sheep and give it such dimension. That sheep does indeed look like it is performing, with a spotlight.
Great minds, indeed! Although what a diva your little singer is with her stage makeup, rhinestones, and flowers. This is such an adorable card, Susan. I love that she’s entertaining the entire farm with her song. (Love the curls and flower too!)
Love your card and thanks for the shout out Susan! She truly does look like a singing sheep…Love ya, Di
We’ve all seen a cat outlined by the moon, why not a singing sheep?! Love it – so fun & whimsical 🙂
