Sweet Stamps.com Anniversary Card

7 Jun

Today, I am so excited to show you my fun card.

It is a new week and Challenge 18 is starting.  The random winner of this challenge will receive a $20.00 gift certificate to Sweet Stamps.com.

The theme of this weeks challenge is:

WEDDING/ANNIVERSARY

The stamps and supplies I have used are:

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY 977C 

LAMBKINS FOR YOU 645 

HEARTLAND AMERICA LARGE DIE DL110 

Here is what I came up with.

Now, when you look at this you might realize that I have the sheep facing one another.  I thought this would be cute for an Anniversary card.

The above image is to give you a closer look at the detail I put into the heart and the floral necklaces on the sheep.

Aren’t they so cute touching noses together?

To do this, I stamped the sheep on plain white paper, then scanned the image onto my computer.  I then turned it into a digital stamp and was able to copy the other sheep and reverse the direction of one of the sheep, so I got this effect.  

 I love the intricate cutwork on the heart I used in the center.  The Heartland America Die is a gorgeous die. 

Now, hopefully I have sparked a new idea for you.  I turned my stamp into a digi stamp, I paper pieced the sheep, I used only a PORTION of the Heartland America Die and I embellished with pearls, glitter and paper pieced flowers.  Just look at all the techniques I am teasing you with!

If you have any questions about a specific technique, be sure to ask me.  You can contact me through the CONTACT ME at the top of my blog page.

I hope yu have enjoyed this card.  It was a ton of fun to make.  Now get on over to SWEET STAMPS.COM blog and play along on our challenge, leave a comment over there making sure that you let them know Jeannie from The Polka Cabana sent you!

Have a great week and thanks for stopping by.
