I stamped the sweet image in with black ink with my Mini MISTI. Make sure and leave your stamp in your MISTI….Sip 1 Jeanne_Streiff

I watercolored my image (yep… in the MISTI. Great for in your lap while on the sofa) and then restamped after my paper was dry for a nice crisp outline. Sip 2 Jeanne_Streiff

 I created my border by masking the center and sponging on inks and then splattering with water. Sip 3 Jeanne_Streiff

Love You

Happy Monday!

Here’s a one layer  card using 1/4″ red and 1/4″ white decorative tapes from Hobby Tape, stamps from Impression Obsession and my Mini MISTI (My Sweet Petunia).HT Heart Jeanne_Streiff

I stamped my images (WP704 Daisies & Hearts) and then I used the grid on my Mini MISTI (My Sweet Petunia) stamp positioning tool to lay out my tape in straight lines.  HT 1 Heart Jeanne_Streiff

Happy Giraffes

Happy Tuesday!

It seems like everyone in my Facebook feed is waiting for April the giraffe to have her new baby. If you haven’t seen the live feed you can see it here. I thought to myself this would be a perfect time to use my Designer Giraffe Craft Stamp by Karmabee from Simply Stamps. Love the fun zentangled design in the giraffes!

I started by stamping my giraffes onto a post-it note (I used a couple and glued them together so I would have the sticky at both the head and feet areas.

I used a pair of scissors to cut out my image creating a mask.

2 Happy Giraffes Jeanne_Streiff

I stamped the image onto a piece of white cardstock with black ink.

Next I carefully covered the image with my giraffe mask.

4 Happy Giraffes Jeanne_Streiff

I placed my stencil (Polka from Brutus Monroe) over my image and sponged ink (Ranger Distress Tumbled Glass and Peacock Feathers) and then repositioned the stencil and sponged on a layer of Twisted Citron.

5 Happy Giraffes Jeanne_Streiff

I removed the mask and added a little coloring to the giraffes with markers (Zig Clean Color). I used my Happy Everything stamp – this is a Custom One Line stamp from Simply Stamps. Have you ever wanted a special phrase and couldn’t find it anywhere? Simply Stamps has your problem solved.
