I got a little wild and crazy with this one and I'm pleased with how it turned out! Sometimes you just never know, do ya? Anyway, I remember as a kid really liking pink and grey together, so I thought I'd give it a try with this cute little sheep. The base cardstock is Pretty in Pink with a layer of Basic Gray and then some Vellum that has been wheeled with the Sweet Stars wheel using Whisper White CRAFT ink. I stamped the sheep with black StazOn ink on Whisper White cardstock and colored him with my Stampin' Pastels again, and then went back with a Blender Pen and the Basic Gray ink pad lid to give him some darker areas. His nose is actually Pretty in Pink, but you can't tell in the photo. I tied some Whisper White Taffeta ribbon below for the soft look it provides. Then I punched some Pretty in Pink and Regal Rose 3/4" and 1" circles, arranged them, and stitched them on with my sewing machine. I saw this basic idea in a recent issue of Stampin' Success (for you non-SU! demonstrators, that's the fabulous publication we demonstrators get each month - chock full of inspiration and ideas!!). Anyway, I've never tried it, but I thought it was a nice compliment to the curly wool on the sheep.
Okay... so there you have it! My Week of Pun Fun! Did you enjoy it as much as I did? Oh, I really had fun - and I know this stamp set will get a lot more use. It's super easy to use, and makes for some super cute cards. And remember that if you purchase it before April 30th, you get the coordinating Sweet Stars Jumbo wheel for FREE! I used it on several of the cards this week, so you can see that it goes well with any of these stamps.
...but that's not all! I promised you an extra bonus if you purchased the set from me. If I have convinced you that you simply must have this set (those were my words from Day 1 - remember?), and you give me the honor of taking care of your order, I will make one of these cards specifically for you - YOUR CHOICE! That's right - choose your favorite card from Day 1 through Day 7 and I will mail it directly to you! That's my way of thanking you for putting your trust in me. But don't forget - you have to place your order prior to April 30th to get the Sweet Stars wheel for free! (US addresses only)
Thanks so much for visiting me every day and for leaving such sweet comments here and in my e-mail. I hope you'll continue to come back often!
