Swap Card Friday

Let’s continue Counting Sheep today! I love to see other crafters’ creations and I have a couple of great swap cards using the Counting Sheep Sale-a-bration stamp set.

This fun card was created by Jill Hamlett. Jill stamped her sheep directly onto the cardstock in fun bright colors and didn’t do any time consuming coloring. How awesome is that. I love the way that she has the two sheep floating with the greeting and balloons above the grounded sheep. The balloons are die cut with the Sheep Dies, another fun Sale-a-bration item that can be earned for free with a $50 order. I think that the label is cut with the smallest Stitched So Sweetly Die.

This sweet Counting Sheep card was created by Nicole Winkelman and is somewhat similar to my creation from yesterday’s post. I’d like to note that Nicole has used the cloud dies from the Sheep Dies set to actually create clouds, whereas, on my card I created bushes with them. I love the background that Nicole has created with ink and blending brushes. The Happy Birthday die is from another cute critter die set, the Birthday Chick Dies. The two sets definitely have a lot in common and coordinate well. Nicole has colored in her sheeps faces, ears, legs and feet with Stampin’ Blend Markers. The bright red balloon makes a nice accent on the card.

I hope that you enjoyed seeing creative ideas from some other creative demonstrators. We each tend to have our own style and I love stretching my skills by trying out new styles.

The Counting Sheep stamp set and matching Sheep Dies were my first pick of Sale-a-bration items. What’s yours?
