More animal-themed cards - this time it's the SHEEP that take centre stage

What's better than a cute sheep themed stamp set?

A FREE cute sheep themed stamp set!

Continuing our animal themed cards, today it's the turn of the sheep, using a stamp set you can obtain for free when you order £45 of products from Jemini Crafts as part of our Sale-A-Bration promotion.

The stamp set is called Counting Sheep, and I used it conjunction with our Stamparatus to create some cards in the round.

You can have great fun with this stamp set, mixing it with other stamps such as Penguin Place with those fabulous balloons. There is also a FREE set of matching dies, which cut out the sheep, but also have a fabulous die cut gate/fence.  You can also earn these for FREE with another £45 of orders, so place an order of £90 or more and you can snap up both.
You can see the stamps below - featuring 3 different sheep poses! Also included are 2 sentiments, a party hat and a useful grass/ground image.

You can see how I made these cards by watching the video below. The Stamparatus is definitely your best friend for this type of card.


took the stamps to our Coffee and Card sessions this week - here was one of the finished designs. The balloons, strings and Happy Birthday message are all from the Penguin Place stamp set.

In fact, if you purchased the Stamparatus you could choose the Counting Sheep as your free item! Here is a list of the main supplies used above: Product List

Cute squirrel cards - love their cheeky smiling faces

New stamp set - Nuts About Squirrels 

Part of my Animal Theme week 

I was delighted to open this stamp set as the first in my series of 'Animal Theme' cards this week. The 2 squirrels are so cute, and being a photopolymer stamp set, they are so easy to stamp and line up.

Here are my finished cards from today:

I love their cheeky little faces, and the sentiments too are just perfect. I think my favourite is probably the Bright Eyed and Bushy Tailed one!

Here is the stamp set Nuts About Squirrels:

I used our Note cards and envelopes as the base for these 2 cards, and one has a Cajun Craze layer and the other a Granny Apple Green layer. I used our Basic White cardstock (thin) for the stamped layer.

Dimensions as follows:
Basic White Thin Card: 3" x  4 1/2"
Coloured Card Layer 3 1/4" x 4 3/4"
Basic notecard (foldeed) 3 1/2" x 5" 

I stamped the squirrels in Early Espresso, and used Grey Granite ink for the infill.  For the leaves, I used Cajun Craze ink, and for the acorn, I used Cajun Craze and Soft Suede.

You can see my video here if you would like to see how the cards were made:

To see the main components used, here is a list you can check out in my shop.

 I love these Scallop Contour Dies 

Join me as I use the fantastic Stampin' Up! layering dies from the Color and Contour bundle. I have used the fabulous Fresh Freesia ink and matching papers for these quick cards. I added some of the matching ribbon as a finishing touch to each of the cards. Here they are:
