Hambo Stamps - Guest Designer - Party Sheep!

Good Morning Everyone,

Today I am so excited to be a Guest Designer for Hambo Stamps - a stamp company filled with the cutest little stamps and they also have the most hilarious sentiments in their stamp collection! I love that one of their sayings on their website is: "Go ahead, laugh at us"! you gotta love that - lol!

A special thanks to my dearest friend Libby for coordinating this opportunity for me - and to Monica, the owner of Hambo Stamps to let me party with them today! I was excited to get to hoedown with my cute little party sheep animals from  Hambo Stamps- this little pyramid of sheep from the Party Sheep stamp set and I picked out the Get the Party Started sentiment (the full sentiment says: "Let's Get this Party started") 

I started out with stamping the sheepies and then cutting them out with my circle spellbinders and then sponging in some sky and then stamped the sheep a second time - this time I cut out the three bottom sheep and stacked them onto the main image panel. I colored these cute little Party Sheep  with some copics and then covered them with some liquid applique and heat embossed them to give the raised texture. I created a little matte with a large circle and adhered it to the Stella Rose DP from MME. The sentiment was stamped and then cut out with the Spellbinder tags and then popped up on the bottom of the card. I finished it off with a bow and some black and silver dew drops on the bottom:

Card Ingredients:
Paper: Stellla Rose MME
Stamps:  Party Sheep stamp set the Get the Party started sentiment from Hambo stamps
Inks: RoseRed, TuxedoBlack and Ladybug Red
Accessories: Martha Stewart Grass Punch, EK success border punch, Spellbinder nesties, copics, sponger, ribbon from stash, dew drops and dimensionals. 

I totally smiled the whole time I was heat embossing these cute sheep - how cute are they?! and I can tell that these sheep have way too much fun partying down (PS - have you seen the funny claymation cartoon called Shaun the Sheep - it is hilarious for kids and kids in adult bodies ;) These sheep TOTALLY remind of the sheep in this comedic cartoon! :)

A huge thanks to dear Libby and Monica for letting me play along today - I can't wait to make more cards with these party sheep! Please check out all the stamps here on the Hambo website!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Sankari :)

Wowzers Sankari - this is amazing!! I don't know if I've ever seen these sheep looking so good! Clearly that field of grass is a good patch, because look at what healthy wool coats they have! I love all the textures and dimension in this. Thank you SO much for being our guest designer for the day!! :)
