Counting Sheep for PP551& Facebook Live

Hello everyone! For my Facebook Live video yesterday, I shared a card using a sneak peek of the Counting Sheep stamp set and coordinating Sheep Dies, which will be available to earn for FREE with a qualifying purchase during Stampin’ Up!® Sale-A-Bration, which begins on August 3rd, 2021

Please join me over on on my *Stampin’ Anne Facebook Page*, where I do Live videos sharing fun Stampin’ Up!® projects. My set time for Facebook Live is Friday at 4:00pm CST, however I have been trying to pop on more often. Be sure to “Like” and “Follow” my Facebook Page so you get the notifications. If you can’t make it Live, you can always watch the replay. Also, I’d like to invite you to join my Stampin’ Anne Facebook Group for more updates, promotions, upcoming classes and exclusive projects. Everyone is welcome!

I really enjoyed creating my Design Team card for this week’s sketch challenge over at The Paper Players. If you missed it, I posted it yesterday on my blog. You can see it HERE. I just loved Ann’s sketch so much, I decided to create another fun card for my Facebook Live.  
I just love this little sassy sheep! It was fun and easy to put the little scene together using the stamps and dies, too. It doesn’t get more fun than a sheep delivering a birthday balloon bouquet, right? :)

Last but not least, here is a photo of our new foster dog! I shared a little bit about her story on my Facebook Live video and a lot of people were asking to see her. Introducing Miss Isla! She’s about 2 years old and just the sweetest pup. She’s getting settled in with us now and will probably be ready for adoption in about 4 weeks or so. Isn’t she adorable?

Product List


  1. Adorable, Anne Marie! I LOVE the texture. What a wonderful way to show off this cute SAB sheep!

  2. It’s adorable! I’m sitting her in my craft room ready to create again, love the stamp set and layout! Thanks for the inspiration!

  3. Those papers are so cute, as is this adorable little lambie-pie! And look at the smile on that pup's face! I could just eat her up!

  4. Anne Marie, this is just the prettiest little lamb. Great colors and fantastic use of the sketch. Miss Isla is so sweet. She looks happy and content in front of the camera. The work you do fostering pups is wonderful!!

  5. Just finished your card. The sizing for the granny apple green layer is off. It should be 2.5 x 1.25. Just thought I’d save someone else a second cut! 😉

    1. Thank you, I edited it to 2-1/2" in the measurements above. :)


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment!
Have a great day! :)
