To celebrate the Blog Hop, Gerda is giving away 3 stamps sets to 3 Lucky Winners. 3 Winners will be randomly chosen from comments along the Hop, so be sure to leave a comment for your chance to wing his Fabulous stamp set. The winners will be announced on July 13th on Gerda Steiner Designs website!! So good luck to you all 🙂
For my card today, I stamped and cut 3 of the small sheep and colored them using my Shinhantouch Brush markers, which are alcohol markers. I have a Black card stock cut to 4″x5 1/4″ and I also cut a watercolor card stock using MFT’s Stitched rectangle die. I want to create a night scenery for my sheeps so I decided to use some mini distress inks. The colors I chose are Seedless preserves, Salty Ocean, and Chipped sapphire. I also added some black soot at the end to darken up the edges more. I used a mini ink blending tool and blended the 3 different colors. I stamped out the sentiment Sweet! on the top left corner and also added some stars, which is also included in this set. To finish up my background, I added the Judikins Black diamond embossing powder to just the top of my panel I created to give some shine. I cut some grass out of some iridescent green card stock using lawn fawns grass border die. I stamped out a gate and cut only one on some wood grain pattern paper. I attached everything together to make it look like the sheeps are jumping over the gate. I have a Full step by step video up above if you’re interested. I hope you liked this card and the Next Hop is to our very talented designer Madey Lim. I’ll leave the links below.

what a super funny idea, with the “Sheep counting” style 🙂
Love your card!!!
This is just so cute! I’m sure everyone is going to
case this card.
This is just the cutest card – thanks for the “how to”!
How sweet…counting sheep! I love it! Thank you for sharing and your hard work has payed off. That is a wonderful card!
What a wonderful card and concept – counting sheep! Brilliant and creative! Love your coloring and shading, your card is so lifelike with the dimension and use of color. Love this!
(oh, and dh and I honeymooned in Hawaii and loved Oahu – how blessed you are!) ♥
These sheep are utterly adorable and the night sky you created is the perfect background for them.
Your card is super sweet! Great video! I love your inky background with all the glittery embossing powder! The sheep are so adorable and cute! I like the wood-grain fence post as well! A sweet scene! Question: I noticed you wiping off your work surface but it looks like grid paper – what do you use to cover your grid paper so that it wipes off so easily? Hope it’s okay to ask…
I adore this stamp set!
Thank you so much for your wonderful comment, I’m glad you liked it. I do have a grid paper and on top of the grid, I have a large square acrylic block on top of it. It’s slightly lager than 13×13 that my father in law cut for me. I tried many different backgrounds to see what looks best on my camera and I think white looked best 🙂 Have fun on this hop, thanks again!
Thank you, Joyce! What a great idea and an easy way to clean off your work surface! TFS!
