Thinking of Ewe!


Have you been on Splitcoaststampers today? They are having a week FILLED with challenges for Fan Club Members to Celebrate their '3rd Birthday!' I am SO excited about these Dirty Challenges this week! :) This is a card I made using Genie's sketch along with Sweet Miss Daisy's challenge to make a 'Pet' themed card.

I don't have a lot of animal stamps, but I love this little sheep by Gina K! I had some ribbon that I'd found at Michaels ($1 bin!), pulled it out and based my colors off of that. The striped paper is by American Crafts and the other is last year's SU winter designer paper.

I wanted to have both sheep facing each other, so I stamped a second image onto a window sheet. I cut it out and drew on the legs. In order to hide the dimensional I used to adhere the 'body', I added wool with some Liquid Appliqué. The sheep's' faces are colored with a Prismacolor marker.

For the sentiment, I used my KF Snap Stamps to turn 'You' into 'Ewe'. I thought it was pretty clever. ;)

I added some stitching and distressed the edges a little. The Marigold Morning layer was given a little texture with the Canvas BG stamp.

Don't forget that today is the last day to sign up for my first Blog Candy (see post below)!!! All comments must be posted there by Midnight tonight!

  1. I'm normally not really into cute when it comes to stamping, but I have to say this is ADORABLE!!!! You are a genius stamping the lamb on clear and then flipping it over. Flippin' genius I say!

  4. Good Grief, you are SO clever. I love sheep and the fluffy one is adorable. I'm so impressed with people who think to stamp on acetate to turn images around. It just never occurs to me until I see it!
