The Stamp Review Crew: Fall Sale-a-Bration Bonus Hop

Stamp Review Crew Blog Hop: Inspiring you one stamp set at a time

Welcome to another Stamp Crew Review Blog Hop!  Sale-a-Bration is almost over, ending September 30, so we have a special "last chance" bonus hop focusing on this season's Sale-a-Bration offerings.  Check out all the inspiring projects the Crew has put together this week.  If you are following the hop in order, you've arrived from the fantastic Lou Kitzelman's blog.

This week I am focusing on the Sale-a-Bration Counting Sheep set and coordinating Sheep Dies, each of which can be earned FREE with a $50 purchase.  I have seen a few cards using the Give It a Whirl dies, and those dies have been on my desk, waiting to be used, so I thought I would try to combine them.  How fun is an interactive card with the cute sheep images from this set?!

After creating a "meadow hill" from the green patterned paper, I cut down the card front to the same shape and attached a couple sheep to a window sheet wheel, die-cut from Give It a Whirl.

HINTS: I attached the wheel to the front of the card base with a brad, but as you fasten the brad, insert your fingernails under the brad head to give a little "play" for the wheel to spin.  Then attach the patterned paper, which can be backed with card stock for more stiffness, with Dimensionals in order not restrict the wheel movement.

Stamps: Counting Sheep (SAB), Penguin Place, Hippo Happiness; Paper: Crushed Curry, Granny Apple Green, Pool Party, Soft Suede, Whisper White, Pattern Party DSP, Window Sheets; Ink: Petal Pink, Granny Apple Green, Saddle Brown Stazon, Smoky Slate; Accessories: Brads, White Baker's Twine, Stapler, Banner Punch, Aquapainter, Sheep Dies (SAB), Give It a Whirl Dies, Die-Cutting Machine, Dimensionals.

And I combined another FREE Sale-a-Bration paper, Peaceful Prints DSP, with the Counting Sheep set for a Christmas-themed card.  The sentiment is computer-printed.
