I have never made a slimline card before! And if there is an animal in a stamp set, you know everyone will be having them climbing on top of each other so…why not these cute sheep from the upcoming Stampin’ UP! stamp set Counting Sheep? It will be a Sale-a-bration Gift with purchase starting August 3. There are also Sheep Dies available during Sale-a-bration, too!
I used the cloud sponging technique on this 4″ x 8-1/2″ card that fits in a #10 envelope with a standard stamp. I used a die from the recently retired Happy Dies from the So Much Happy Bundle like I did on this card. You could also use the cloud die in the Stampin’ UP! Basic Borders Dies. See the sample below. The puffs are different and look great, too! I love the big sentiment from the new Stampin’ UP! Biggest Wish.
I used my Dark Poppy Parade and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends to color in the balloons and party hats. Easy Peasy. I decided to color my sheep with a light black face because that one down by the fence looked like he had a human face when I colored it with pink…lol! Oh, and I used the grass die in the retired Special Days Dies.
Thanks for buzzing by, friends…
