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.
I stamped the image onto a piece of white cardstock with black ink.
Next I carefully covered the image with my giraffe mask.
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.
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.
I hope you enjoyed my project!!!
Have a great day! Jeanne

I just had to use the rooster from On The Farm for my project!
I sponged a background (Broken China, Candied Apple, and Seedless Preserves) and then used the Heart Swirl stencil over the top with white acrylic paint and Seedless Preserves ink.
Next I cut a quick masked and splattered some thinned white paint and then stamped the Grid stamp from 3171-LG Ringtones with Broken China ink.
Eeek! Rooster! I love him! I sponged the cute rooster from On The Farm and then used it as a guide to paint my rooster with watercolors.
I finished with sponging in some of the extra elements from On The Farm and the I added my DIE382-D Get Well Soon die cut.

All papers, stamps and embellishments used on my project are from Momenta.
I started by lining up my front and back panel and stamping the feather (Stamp & Die Combo Large Feathers)on both layers with my MISTI (My Sweet Petunia)
Next I stamped the flowers and border (Stamp and Stencil pack Butterfly and Birds) and layered my larger panel on a kraft card base.
I added a sentiment (Stamp and Stencil pack Butterfly and Birds).
To make my embellishment I used a stencil from Stamp and Stencil pack Butterfly and Birds and Rose Metallic and Brown Semi Gloss paints to make my butterfly on the cute doily.
