I've been waiting to ink up these stamps from Cornish Heritage Farms "Primitive Beginnings."
I needed a baby card for a shower at our church on Saturday, and I thought that these little sheep would be just perfect. The baby will be a boy, thus the primary colors.

I used a retired background stamp from Stampin' Up called "Fontastic" on PaperTrey Ink's Pure Poppy cardstock. I traced, glued, and cut black cardstock onto a piece of chipboard to create the large B. I sanded the edges a bit, then attached it to my alphabet letter panel. I then created a computer sentiment which I die cut out (Nestabilities) with my Cuttle Bug. A ribbon bow completed the tag.

Layers, a bit of sponging and the sheep popped up on dimensional tape finished the project.
Pretty simple overall.

Stamps: Cornish Heritage Farms Primitive Beginnings
Paper: Paper Trey Ink Pure Poppy and Kraft, Stampin' Up Basic Black
Ink: Versafine Black Onyx, Stampin' Up Creamy Caramel
Accessories: Cuttle Bug, Nestabilities, SU gingham ribbon, unknown chipboard B, dimensional tape

Thanks for stopping by!
