Counting Sheep Step-by-Step
Q: What do you get when you cross a sheep with a porcupine?
A: A sheep that can knit its own sweaters.

For our casual project, we used just a few products to create a fun, simple card that anyone can make. Stamp and die-cut the sheep, add a little color with Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends, create a dimensional background with 1" x 3" (2.5 x 7.6 cm) strips of Basic Gray Cardstock, then dapple the “sky” with Resin Stars. Baa-adorable.
We fancied up the Avid card by embossing the Basic Gray Cardstock Strips with the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder. Our special trick? Add a little White Craft ink to the folder to leave cloudy impressions on the embossed paper.
For our final card we used Blending Brushes to add Basic Gray and Tuxedo Black Memento ink to a piece of Smoky Slate Cardstock. Once the inks were blended, we spritzed the cardstock with water, then splattered it with White Craft ink before cutting the paper into 1" x 3" (2.5 x 7.6 cm) strips. This time we used the inked embossing folder technique on the card base, giving it a marbled look that contrasts nicely with the darker cardstock strips beneath.
Happy Stamping Charity
