Counting Sheep: Celebrating Ewe!

Perfect Birthday and Baby Cards “Ewe” Will Love!

The Counting Sheep stamp set is so adorable – and when paired with the Picture This Dies and the Playful Alphabet Dies the possibilities are endless! The best part? The set is FREE with a $50 purchase this month! I have a video tutorial and three cute cards to share with you today.

Stampin' Up! Counting Sheep with Picture This Dies for cute birthday and baby cards

So cute! The Counting Sheep coming to life with a tiny bit of coloring using the Stampin’ Blends. I used the light Pool Party, the light Petal Pink, and the dark Smoky Slate. And the Picture This Dies cut the frame to make this “collage” type of card so easy! I die cut the 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Coastal Cabana for the frame. I also used the circle Picture die to cut a piece of the Pattern Party Designer Series Paper. The resulting frame I saved for another card and used just the three smaller circles cut outs for this card. This paper is one of the Stampin’ Reward options when your order is over $150.

Inside the card I had some fun with puns! I used the Playful Alphabet dies and the same Pattern Party Designer Paper to cut the 2 E’s and the W. The “Let’s Celebrate” stamp is from the Hey Birthday Chick stamp set – it actually says “Let’s Celebrate You” but I used the oval portion of the Double Oval punch and just punched out the first 2 words. The balloon is part of the sheep dies too!

Counting Sheep is perfect for baby cards…

The soft Pool Party card stock is perfect for baby cards. These sheep are colored exactly the same as the sheep on the first card – but look softer when paired with the softer background. Once again the Designer Paper is from the Pattern Party pack. The “Sweet Baby” sentiment is from the Many Happenings stamp. I just inked up this one image, stamped it on a scrap bit of Basic White, and die cut it using just one of the small circles in the Picture This Die set.

For the inside of the card I just HAD to use the cute fence that comes with the Sheep Dies! I used another one of the Pattern Party circles that I had cut from the die. The “You are SO loved” sentiment is from the “A Grand Kid” stamp set.

Here is a look at everything you get in the Counting Sheep stamp set and the Sheep Dies – each is free with a $50 order. But hurry – they are only available this month and only while supplies last! To see another project using a different Sale-a-bration product, check out this beautiful anniversary card made with the Be Dazzling Specialty Paper!

I couldn’t resist making another birthday card with this set. This time I made a vertical card instead of a landscape card. I used Basic Gray and Real Red so if feels a little more masculine. The clear epoxy circles are hard to see in the photo. They are above the sentiment to add a little embellishment to the card. I colored these sheep with some of the Stampin’ Write Markers: Smoky Slate, Basic Gray, and Real Red (on the hat).

Of course the inside had to be more pun fun with the Playful Alphabet!
