Isn’t it cute? I think we can safely say that little sheep is a pretty happy guy (or gal I guess)!

What do I think is great about this card?

It’s all made with just stamps and markers. I couldn’t resist also adding a bit of bling by colouring in the top sheep with Wink of Stella!

Here are the steps so you can make one just like it!

Colour Handmade Cards with Stampin Write Markers

You only need a few supplies for this quick card. Really, just a Memento Black ink pad and some Stampin’ Writes Markers. Or if you have the pink and green stamp pads, it’s even quicker!

I used Magenta Madness and Granny Apple Green but feel free to substitute whatever bright colours you have at home.

Cuttin’ It Up!

  • Granny Apple Green – 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″
  • Magenta Madness – 4″ x 5 1/4″
  • Basic White – 2 pieces 3 3/4″ x 5″, small scrap

Let’s Make It!

  1. Stamp sheep three times as indicated with Tuxedo Black Memento ink onto Basic White panel. TIP: Make sure to use a scrap piece of paper underneath your work area as you stamp off the sides of your white cardstock. Colour hooves and ears with Basic Black Stampin’ Write. TIP: Use the brush tip for this little bit larger area,
  2. Stamp hat three times on scrap of Basic White. Colour with Stampin’ Write markers. TIP: Colour with the small tip of the marker for these small areas. DESIGN IDEA: I coloured two hats with a green background and pink dots and one in reverse for a little variety. Cut out hats with Paper Snips and attach mini dimensionals to backs. Set aside.
  3. Ink up greeting with Magenta Madness ink and stamp below highest sheep.
  4. Ink grass with Granny Apple Green and stamp along bottom of Basic White panel. TIP: Stamp two times randomly before re-inking the stamp. DESIGN IDEA: It’s OK to overlap the image too!
  5. Glue entire panel to Magenta Madness panel, then to front of folded card base. Remove backing from dimensionals and affix hats in place. Add a basic rhinestone to the hat.
  6. OPTIONAL: Colour the highest sheep with Wink of Stella.
