Welcome back everyone! I’m over on the Pink & Main blog today sharing a non-holiday card featuring the Love Ewe stamps and dies. I absolutely adore these sweet critters with their silly long legs and love that they can be used all year round for lots of different types of cards. Today I’m sharing more of a “thinking of you” type love card.
I started by stamping the sheep from Love Ewe and colored it with my copics. Then I used the coordinating dies to cut it out, along with a few of the flowers and flower bundles in the same set. I set them aside and started on my background scene. I cut a scalloped rectangle from Sympathy Slim Line die set and then found a Stitched Slim Line rectangle that would fit within the stitching lines on the scalloped panel. I actually cut that panel three times – 2 full panels and one from a scrap.
One full panel was inked up with two different colors of blue, then I put the scattered hearts stencil over the top and added another layer of the same blues to give a tone-on-tone heart sky for my background. I took another full panel and cut grass from both ends – kind of a two-for-one deal. Then cut grass from the scrap piece too. Now I have sky and 3 layers of grass. I inked up the grass panels with a couple colors of green and started assembling my scene.
The sky panel is popped up with foam tape on the scalloped panel. The tallest layer of grass is adhered with liquid glue, then second layer is popped up with foam tape. Before I adhered the bottom layer with liquid glue I stamped my sentiment on it. Finally the sheep and flowers were adhered with a combination of liquid glue and foam squares.
I love the little details in this card like the stenciled sky and big, sweet glossy eyes on the sheep. It’s all super cute together!
I hope you find some inspiration to create something wonderful. I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
