Feeling Sheepish!

Hi there! It's Kathi here with two cards featuring the Baa Humbug Clear Polymer Stamp Set from Hobby Art! You might think that this stamp set's name would indicate that it's only for Christmas, but you'd be mistaken. It comes with three sheep, several accessories. and two sentiments which not only makes this set a great value, but very versatile as well!

For Halloween!
I decided that this sheep would be dressed as a proper gentleman for Halloween with a bowler hat and a monocle, plus the appropriate "Boo" and "Baa" sentiments.

For Christmas!
A Santa hat transforms this sheep into Santa, albeit a grumpy one.

For both cards I first stamped the bowler and Santa hats from the Baa Humbug Clear Polymer Stamp Set onto white cardstock, then onto masking paper. The masking paper versions were fussy-cut and placed atop their counterparts. Using a stamp positioner, I stamped the sheep in place, then stamped the monocle. For the Christmas card. I used Onyx Black VersaFine ink to stamp the sentiment. The lights were stamped with Memento ink and a stamp positioner.

The masks were removed and I colored the sheep and hats with Copic markers. Several layers of Clear Glaze pen were added to the monocle and the lights to add dimension and shine.

For the Halloween card, the image panel was matted with orange cardstock and patterned paper, edged with Distress ink, and adhered to coordinating patterned paper, then matted again with orange cardstock. Orange cardstock was cut with speech bubble and nameplate dies. Rub-ons from two different sets were added to the speech bubble die-cut to read "Boo" and "Baa". Onyx Black VersaFine ink was used to stamp the sentiment onto the nameplate die-cut. A thin strip of patterned paper was adhered to the card front as shown, then the speech bubble and sentiment were added. Two blue brads were added to the sentiment, the card front was edged with Distress ink, and the card front was adhered to an orange card.

For the Christmas card, the image panel was cut with a rounded rectangle die and matted with red cardstock that had been die-cut with a slightly larger rounded rectangle die. Patterned paper was cut, edged with Distress ink, matted on Kraft cardstock, then onto a red A2 card. Red cardstock was cut with a scalloped border die and a thin strip of coordinating patterned paper was adhered to it. The border die was adhered across the patterned paper panel as shown to finish the card.
