This guy is my FAVORITE little sheep, and what I fell in love with the first time I saw this stamp set!

Let's take a look at how to make this sweet card...

Step 1: Create a gradient blue background on a 4 1/4"x 5 1/2" panel. I used my Copic airbrush for this, but a blended ink background, or watercolored background would work great too!

Step 2: Create a hill using one of the In the Grass dies. You can color this hill any way you like, or use green patterned paper even! I colored it in using my usual grass flicks with Copics. 

 I love this die set! It's great if you like to create scenes with dies!!  

Step 3: Randomly stamp the star cluster across the background with Watermark ink, then dust with Gold Perfect Pearls. Brush of any extra powder. Set by spraying water into the air and wafting the cardstock through the mist. 

Step 4: Stamp, color, and fussy cut the dancing lamb... 

Step 5: Die cut a scalloped oval from white cardstock using the Practically Oval die set. Stamp "When I count my blessings" in Raven hybrid ink, then quickly dust with gold Perfect Pearls. Brush off any extra powder. Set by spraying water in the air and wafting the cardstock through the mist.

Step 6: Stamp "I count ewe twice" in Watermark ink, then heat emboss with White Embossing Powder.

Step 7: Start assembling your card by adhering the sky panel to a top folding A2 card base. Adhere the grass to the bottom of the panel, and the oval centered in the remaining sky.

Step 8: Adhere the lamb next to the sentiment using foam tape.

Step 9: Embellish! I used some champagne colored jewels to match the shimmery stars in the background.
