Hello Paper Crafters!! I want to share a quick and easy card I made to thank my customers for their support of my business. To create the Zany Zebras simple stamping thank you card I used ink and water color pencils. Stampin’ Up!’s Watercolor Pencils are a great buy, because you get 13 pencils for $16 and the Assortment 2 are $12.50 for 10 pencils. There are lots of techniques for using water color pencils. For this project I used them like colored pencils and just colored in the stripes.

The Video

Here is a Stampin’ Up! video that shows you a variety of ways to use the water color pencils. (Note: we no longer carry archival ink, instead you can use StazOn ink.)

Instructions for Zany Zebras Simple Stamping

Step 1:

Cut your pieces.

  • No cutting involved because we are using the precut note cards.

Step 2:

Stamp your images.

  • With Just Jade ink, stamp the sentiment along the bottom of the card front.
  • Use Misty Moonlight ink to stamp the zebra half way between the top of the card front and the top of the sentiment.
  • Stamp a zebra head in the corner of the envelope in Just Jade ink.

Step 3:

Color images.

  • Use the Coastal Cabana water color pencil to color the stripes on the zebra.

Step 4:

Finishing touch.

  • Just Jade Gems: Use a small gem for the tail and 2 of the large gems by the sentiment. Squeeze a small amount of glue onto the craft sheet. Use the pointy end of the Take Your Pick to place a small dot of glue on the zebra’s tail. Drop a small gem onto the glue with tweezers. Repeat this process to glue a large gem at the beginning and end of the sentiment.
