Second Post of the Day – Scroll Down for “Simple Saturday”
“Oh Baby!” is the theme of Stamp Simply #125 as featured this week on the No Time to Stamp? blog. I saw the challenge as an opportunity to try out the little sheep stamps from the so-sweet “Love You Forever” stamp set.
As you can see I used Liquid Appliqué to create “wool.” The baby sheep was stamped on a separate piece of paper, cut out, and adhere to the card with foam tape.
Materials & Tools: White Daisy and Lilac Mist cardstock; Sweet Pea paper packet; Black and Lilac Mist ink pads; Love You Forever and Sweet Baby stamp sets; Baby Pink and Heavenly Blue mini brads; Stampin’ Up Whisper White taffeta ribbon; White Liquid Appliqué; Prismacolor colored pencils; Gamsol odorless mineral spirits; Blending stump; Stampin’ Up Horizontal Slot punch; 3M foam mounting tape.
This next card was one of those that just kind of evolved. The little birds are paper-pieced, and I did a little faux stitching on the grass, piercing holes and then connecting them with my Key Lime marker. I used foam tape to give the overlapping cloud a “little lift.”

My cards are kind of spring-like, don’t you think? I girl can hope. I’ve been watching the news today and am marveling that all that is shut down on the East Coast due to a snow storm. That doesn’t happen on the frozen tundra. Schools close. That’s it. When working in a bank in Crookston before I was married, we had a big storm, and a bank officer came to get me on his snowmobile to bring me to work. I remember it being a cold ride. Business clothes aren’t all that warm, and, of course, I was too young to be sensible. LOL.
I’ve had a good day and hope yours has been a good one, too. Later…
