Counting Sheep

When I saw one of the new Sale-A-Bration items available in August, my thoughts immediately turned to the Give It A Whirl dies in the Annual Catalog.

Counting Sheep (available in August) and Give it a Whirl dies make a perfect match – Images (c) Stampin’ Up!

Do you see what I mean? Haha!!

I used the the 2020 In Colors (Just Jade, Bumblebee, and Cinnamon Cider), the Bark Embossing Folder, the Give It a Whirl Dies, and the Counting Sheep stamps/coordinating dies that will be a Sale-A-Bration item in August. I used a window sheet to help the sheep with their jumping skills.

I embossed the Just Jade piece with the Bark embossing folder and then cut out with the larger die in the Give It a Whirl set. I wanted there to be more room on the upper portion to give the sheep room to spread their wings, so I cut above the hole, turned the piece over to adhere to the card base.

I stamped, colored, and cut out the sheep and place them on a window sheet that I cut with the ‘wheel’ mechanism of the die set. I put one piece of fencing on the Just Jade portion (‘in front’) and one piece of fencing on the card base underneath the window sheet (‘in back’). I was trying hard to give the illusion of ‘up and over’ as the sheep jumped.

What do you think? I’d love to see some other versions – give it a go and please share.
