Stampin’ Up! Counting Sheep Sneak Peek Video Tutorial

Hello! I hope you had a great weekend! Yesterday afternoon during my weekly Facebook Live, I made a Thank You Card with the cute Stampin’ Up! Counting Sheep photopolymer stamp set and the coordinating Sheep dies that will be available during Sale A Bration tomorrow! You can find the currently available supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

Here is the Facebook Live video showing how I made the card:

I posted a copy of the video in my YouTube channel here so you can view it there if you prefer.

If you watch my video, you will see that I forgot to color the arm of the dancing sheep! I didn’t catch it until I was processing the pictures for this blog post, so I colored his arm and retook the pictures. Oh Well! Lesson learned – don’t rush, double check your cards before you send them! LOL.

I started by embossing a panel of Balmy Blue with the new Timber 3D embossing folder – I love this subtle wood grain look. I adhered the panel to the front of a Balmy Blue card base. I used the third largest Stitched Rectangles die to cut the Balmy Blue polka dot panel from the You’re A Peach designer series paper. I cut a panel of Basic White with the same die and adhered them together to stiffen the DSP background.

I cut a small strip of the Pear Pizzazz You’re A Peach DSP with the bottom of the same Stitched rectangle die and adhered it to the bottom of the panel. I cut one each of the bushes from the Sheep Dies and adhered them to the panel on top of the Pear Pizzazz strip. I cut the cute gate from Sahara Sand card stock and adhered it on top of the seam to cover it and then I adhered the die cut panel to the front of the card with dimensionals.

I stamped the jumping sheep and the dancing sheep from the Stampin’ Up! Counting Sheep cling stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I cut them out with the coordinating dies and colored their faces, ears and legs with the light Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blend. I colored their hooves with the dark Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blend and adhered them to the card front with dimensionals. I cut out the sun with the Sheep Dies and stamped a little face on it using the Hippo Happiness stamp set. I adhered the sun to the card with a glue dot. I stamped the sentiment from the Hippo Happiness stamp set in Real Red on Basic White and cut it out with the small die from the Hippo and Friends dies. I adhered it to the card front with glue dots.

I stamped last sheep from the Stampin’ Up! Counting Sheep stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on the bottom corner of a Basic White panel and colored her with Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends like the sheep on the card front. I cut out two more Pear Pizzazz bushes with the Sheep Dies from the You’re A Peach DSP and adhered them to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up Counting Sheep stamp set and the Sheep dies are two of the items that you can choose for free with a $50 purchase before shipping and handling during Sale A Bration. There will be a total of eight different items you can choose from at the $50 level and two more at the $100 level. Sale A Bration starts on Tuesday August 3. I can’t wait! 😊
