Our final day with guest designer, Jeanne Streiff, brings us this wonderful tribute to Summer:
Notes from Jeanne:
"I love, love, love the By the Sea set! What a great stamp set for so many different types of cards. This is a 5” x 5” card. I made a background panel in cream cardstock and sponged the edges with brown ink and then stitched on the sewing machine with black thread and attached it to the card back. The light blue panel was cut with a Spellbinders Labels 10 Nestabilities® die. I sponged the blue panel and added doodles around the edges with a Copic Multiliner pen."
"The image panel was stamped in black on white cardstock and colored with Copic markers. I sponged the edges in brown ink and distressed a bit before attaching to the brown Spellbinders Labels 10 Nestabilities® mat. I wrapped the hemp around the card and knotted and then added the image panel with foam squares. The “Make a Wish” phrase was stamped (with my new FABULOUS Clear Horizontal Stamper!) in black ink on a small strip of white cardstock. I trimmed two “V” shapes from the ends (it helps me to mark the center on the back to get an even cut) and then sponged the edges in brown ink. I curved it a bit an secured with glue. The last step was adding the pearls and gold nailheads with dabs of Ranger Glossy Accents."
Here's the last of our interview with Jeanne:
7. Tell us who is currently your favorite paper company: "Jillibean Soup – I just love their crisp clean patterns."
8. Tell us what are you currently addicted to: "Ha – That seems to change weekly! My latest addiction seems to be JustRite stamps … my collection has grown huge in the last few months. Yum!!!"
9. Tell us your favorite paper crafting season and why: "I’d have to say Christmas (though Halloween is a close second). Christmas seems to be the time that I’m most creative and working on a variety of projects that I don’t normally do the rest of the year."
