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.
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.
