As Shepherds Watched Their Flocks... - Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop

Welcome to another year full of inspiration from the Stampin' Up! Global Artisan Design Team!! I'm so excited and honoured to be representing New Zealand again. Join us for two blog hops each month and prepare to get crafty!

A bit about me:
I'm a stay-at-home Mum of (almost) four. Due to pop in January! I've been a demonstrator with Stampin' Up! since 2009 and I love all the connections I have made with many talented people along the way. Before I go any further - thank you to all those who have supported me thus far and a big HELLO if you're new around here :)

Here's a little table inspiration for December 25th. Sheep are sort of a national icon around here and of course part of the Christmas story so I made this flock of place name treats with my kids.

These sheep are my own take on a few different ones from Pinterest. To make yours you'll need the following punches:
1 3/4" Scallop Circle
Cupcake Builder
1 1/4" Circle
3/4" Circle
Word Window

We also sponged a bit of Smoky Slate around any white edges.

Don't they look cute together? I used Tip Top Taupe, Crumb Cake, Sahara Sand and Smoky Slate for the base colours. This Curvy Keepsake thinlit never seems to get old. Such a perfect size and shape.
