Happy Stampin’ Wednesdays!
This is day three of sharing samples from the Counting Sheep Cling Stamp Set. It is one of the sets you can earn for FREE during Sale-A-Bration! With a $50 purchase (before shipping and taxes) these cute little sheep can be yours. If you have an order that totals $100 or more (before shipping and taxes) you can earn the matching Sheep Dies as well!
This beginner level card is fun and easy to make in less than 5 minutes. I love 5-minute cards, especially when I need something quick. You can even change the colors with ease. Pick a Designer Series Paper (DSP) for the background strip and pick a matching color cardstock for the frame. I will work on a few more of these using other stamps and papers and post them to the Facebook group this week. I have some really cute retired DSP I want to use.
- Counting Sheep Sale-A-Bration Stamp Set
- Sale-A-Bration Sheep Dies
- Basic White cardstock – Card base measures 5-1/2″x8-1/2″, scored and folded at 4-1/4″, rectangle piece measures 4-1/2″x2-3/4″
- Basic Black cardstock – 4-3/4″x3″
- Designer Series Paper (DSP) – 5-1/2″x2″
- Ink pad: Basic Gray
- Stampin’ Blends – Light Smoky Slate, Light Petal Pink, & Dark Basic Black
- Rhinestone Basic Jewels
Begin by adhering the DSP to the card base.
Next, stamp the image(s) in Basic Gray on the white cardstock rectangle piece, then color with Stampin’ Blends.
Using Basic Gray, stamp sentiment on the lower right corner of the card base.
Mount your colored sheep rectangle on the Basic Black piece. Note: I added the second sheep later because I was not happy with all of the negative space, LOL.
Add Rhinestone Basic Jewels. I colored a few of mine with a Stampin’ Blends Basic Black marker before sticking them to the card. The Stampin’ Blends are an awesome tool for coloring gems!
The Finished Card:
I hope you enjoyed today’s project. Make sure to subscribe to Let It Snow Stamping so you never miss another blog post. Every week I pick a stamp set and make one project (possibly two) every weekday. As an added bonus I also make videos for new techniques. The techniques can also be found under the Technique Corner tab.
