LIVE Class Rescheduled To Saturday—Oh friends, it seems like everything keeps getting in the way of my LIVE Classes lately! This week's LIVE Class has been rescheduled to Saturday at 10am, because our air conditioner went out and we'll be having a complete HVAC unit installed on Thursday and possibly Friday. My stamping studio is literally right outside the furnace area, so everything has to be put on hold. You won't want to miss it! I'll be unveiling the first kit for my Countdown To Christmas series!
Limited Selection Left of My Extra Past Class Kits!
I've listed dozens of leftover Class Kits for sale on my Too Cool Stamping Facebook Page. You can either place an order to earn the kits for FREE or purchase them for a flat fee. See complete details by clicking the link below. Kits are while supplies last and are going quickly!
Oh, those Counting Sheep are simply adorable! Tracy Jacobs created this super-cute birthday card with fun colors and a simple birthday focal point.
Background Basics—Tracy started by layering a 3" x 4" piece of the Host exclusive Pattern Party Designer Series Paper onto a 3-1/8" x 4-1/8" piece of Basic White cardstock. You can earn this value pack of paper by having an individual or party order of $150 that qualifies for Stampin' Rewards. Find out more on page 170-171 of the Annual Catalog or Host A Party info here. Those layers are mounted onto a Pool Party card base.
Sweet Sentiment—Tracy stamped the Counting Sheep sentiment in Smoky Slate ink onto a 4-1/4" x 1" piece of Basic White and adhered it across the lower part of the card.
Sweet Sheep—Tracy stamped the County Sheep image in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Basic White, then colored it in with Stampin' Blends Markers in Smoky Slate and Basic Black. The party hat was also stamped in Memento Black and colored with Granny Apple Green and Magenta Madness. Both were die-cut with the coordinating Sheep Dies and popped up with Dimensionals.
Finishing Touches—I love the pop of color Tracy added by die-cutting a Magenta Madness balloon with the Sheep Dies. It's popped up and "tied" to the sheep with white baker's twine from the Essentials Baker's Twine Pack and Glue Dots. So cute!

Counting Sheep Black & White Birthday Card
Leeann Greff also sent an adorable Counting Sheep birthday card for her swap! She paired the sheep stamps and dies with another Sale-a-Bration selection: the Beautifully Penned DSP! Perfect!
Background Basics—Leeann adhered 4" x 1-3/4" and 1-1/4" x 4" strips of Beautifully Penned DSP to a Basic Black card base. She topped that with a 1-1/2" x 3-3/4" piece of Petal Pink over the top for a collage-style backdrop.
Sweet Sheep—Leeann stamped the Counting Sheep image directly onto the dotted pattern of Beautifully Penned DSP, then colored it with Basic Black and Petal Pink Stampin' Blends. She die-cut it with the Sheep Dies, then layered it onto a Basic Black Hippo & Friends die-cut. It's adhered to the front with SEAL Adhesive.
Sweet Sentiment—Leeann stamped the Counting Sheep greeting in Memento Black onto Petal Pink and punched it with the Double Oval Punch. She added a folded piece of Black & White Gingham Ribbon behind the oval, then popped it up with Dimensionals. How fun!
