Sweet Little Lambs

Happy Saturday, everyone! Today I am sharing a cute little project featuring a few of the photogenic  lambs born on our farm this year. I've turned them into little fairies and displayed them on GSL Simple House Ornament Shapes, which are available over at Alpha Stamps.  These shapes are so versatile to use and come as a set of 2 heavy chipboard house shapes with a hole at the top for hanging.
I started by selecting the background papers I wanted to use for both the front and the back. Using the house as a template, I traced around it and cut the papers to size. 
The papers I used for the front were from G45's Artisan Style and Imaginisce's Twitterpated collections and backs are from G45's An ABC Primer collection. Using tacky glue, the papers were adhered to the chipboard.
After the glue dried, I used a sharp tool to open the hole at the top of the house.
The same thing was done from the back of the house. 
I used a sanding block to smooth out the edges and inked them with a galaxy gold ink pad.
For the next step, I printed out a few of our lamb photos onto chipboard, cut some butterflies from Graphic 45's Olde Curiosity Shoppe paper and gathered together a few fancy hole punches and sparkly papers from DCWV's Glitzy Glitter stack.
I cut the lambs out and added butterfly wings and a sparkly flower crown to each.
Using fancy punches, I made a few shapes to play with for added interest.
Along with a few paper scraps and some flat back pearls, I assembled my bits and pieces for the background and then set the lambs on top.
The hangers were fashioned from a four inch section of wire that easily bends into shape.

 Thanks for stopping by!

  1. These are adorable and whimsical. What a fun springtide project. The lambs remind me of the tone I visited a friends parents farm in Ireland. Thanks for sharing and reminding me of my adventures...

    1. Thanks so much Jon David. We have one more pregnant ewe so are not done with lambing for the year just yet.
