My project uses Sing and Delight. I uses water based markers to color the hair directly on the stamp. The MISTI stamp positioner makes this easy because you can keep stamping over and over until you get a nice clean image. I used the Snowflake Flower stencil from A Colorful Life for the background.Delight 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!

Happy Giraffes Jeanne_Streiff

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.

1 Happy Giraffes Jeanne_Streiff

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.

3 Happy Giraffes Jeanne_Streiff

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.
