Sneak Peek Counting Sheep

Stampin Up Counting Sheep

Tomorrow is a big day in the world of Stampin’ Up!®!!  The new July – December Mini Catalog and the Sale-a-bration catalogs go live!  For those of you who don’t know, Sale-a-bration happens twice a year.  Well, it used to be once a year but this year Stampin’ Up!® is celebrating Sale-a-bration twice.  During this period you can earn free products from the Sale-a-bration catalog with qualifying orders.  There is no limit on how many products you can get for free!  It is my favorite time of year!

The card I made today using two of the products you can get for free with a qualifying order.  The stamp set is called Counting Sheep and the coordinating dies are called Sheep Dies.  Both are just adorable!  You can get one of them with a $50 order (before shipping and tax) or both with a $100 order.  There are also many other products that you can get for free available such as stamp sets, dies and Designer Series Paper.

To make this card I first stamped the sheep in Memento Black Ink and colored them with my Crumb Cake Stampin Blends.  I cut the fence out of Crumb Cake card stock and adhered that below the sheep.  I stamped the hats and colored them using Blends and cut out the balloons with a die included in this set using Mango Melody, Bermuda Bay and Gorgeous Grape card stock.

The sentiment is from the stamp set called Many Messages.  I colored it using a Bermuda Bay and Gorgeous Grape Stampin Write Marker and then cut it out using the coordinating die called Messages.  I have to admit I first stamped it crooked right below the middle sheep so I stamped it again and cut it out and then adhered it over the crooked one with a Dimensional.  As they say “there is no such thing as a mistake in stamping.  There is only room for embellishments!”.  Lastly I took a Granny Apple Green Stampin Write Marker and added some grass under the fence.

As you can see I did not attached any links for these new products since they are not available until tomorrow.  There are no links available until the time they go live. Thanks for understanding.
