OH MY GOODNESS! Aren't these adorable? I love the COUNTING SHEEP stamp set and matching SHEEP DIES that will be available on August 3rd - and they are each FREE with a $50 order during SALE-A-BRATION! SAB (as it's called by veterans) lasts until September 30th but I wouldn't wait to get these cuties - all products are "while supplies last."
My PAPER PIECING is just that - piecing paper together to make a little ombre element for my card. I chose Melon Mambo, Polished Pink and Blushing Bride along with Basic Black and Basic White.
I stamped the inside with the HAPPIEST OF BIRTHDAYS stamp set - a perfect sentiment set with fabulous fonts. For the card below - I used Bermuda Bay, Coastal Cabana, Just Jade and Mint Macaron for the Paper Piecing. My fence is Crumb Cake and embellished with the baker's twine bow.
So bright and colorful right? Which is your favorite?
- Basic White Thick 11" x 4 1/4" scored at 5 1/2"
- Basic Black 2" x 5 1/2"
- Blue Card: Bermuda Bay, Coastal Cabana, Just Jade & Mint Macaron strips 1/2" x 1 7/8"
- Pink Card: Melon Mambo, Polished Pink & Blushing Bride strips 1/2" x 1 7/8"
- Scraps: Crumb Cake, Basic White, Coastal Cabana and Polished Pink
Then I added the pink strips of cardstock to a 3" x 3" layer of Basic White and die cut it with one of the LAYERING CIRCLE DIES. Matted with a Basic Black scallop circle and I have a whole different look.
The STITCHED GREENERY DIE is a must have! It makes the best backgrounds for some many different cards.
I don't know which one I like best - what's your favorite?
- Polished Pink or Coastal Cabana 11" x 4 1/4" scored at 5 1/2"
- Basic Black 5 1/8" x 3 7/8"
- Basic White 3 3/4" x 5" & 3" x 3" & 4" x 5 1/4" (inside)
- Blue Card: Bermuda Bay, Coastal Cabana, Just Jade & Mint Macaron strips 1/2" x 3"
- Pink Card: Melon Mambo, Polished Pink & Blushing Bride strips 1/2" x 1 3"
- Scraps: Basic White, Coastal Cabana and Polished Pink
You're going to see a lot more of this stamp set and dies - it's so easy to make adorable cards! I can't hardly wait to play with it some more!
