Celebrate with a Fabulous Flamingo

Flamingos are everywhere!   They’re on pillows, tees, cups, cards and so much more.  I recently purchased the Fabulous Flamingo stamp set and couldn’t wait to use it with the Tropical Chic.  The color challenge of Call me Clover, Flirty Flamingo and Lovely Lipstick at Hand Stamped Sentiments also inspired my birthday flamingo card.

The Call me Clover base I stamped with the leaf stamp from the Fabulous Flamingo stamp set.  The flamingo I stamped with Flirty Flamingo and black Momento ink then fussy cut with paper snips.  The foliage and flowers were stamped from the Tropical Chic stamp set and die cut using the Tropical Thinlit dies.

To add sparkle I used the Wink of Stella on the flowers and the flamingo.  I also used a rhinestone for the eye of the flamingo.  The ribbons are 1/8″ Grosgrain Lovely Lipstick  and 5/8″ Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon.  The sentiment is from the Thoughtful Banners set.  The faceted button is retired.  Making this card was fun!

Just a a Note with Petals and More

I just received the Petal Palette bundle.  It’s one of those bundles you don’t realize have so many great elements until you really look at it.  This is a great bundle because you can create many different types of cards.   The greetings are perfect for thank you, wedding, graduation or just because.  The greeting I ended up using is from the Wood Words bundle then die cut with one of the dies from the Petal Palette bundle.

My card was inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments color challenge of Soft Sky, Lemon Twist and Flirty Flamingo.  I love this color combo!

The images lend themselves to being colored with markers, pencils or water-colored.  I colored the flowers and leaves on my card with a blender pen and ink pads.  The larger leaf foliage  and die cut banners were also die cut with dies from the Petal Palette bundle.

I used a die from the retired Labels Collection, stamped with retired texture stamp from Gorgeous Grunge with retired Encore gold ink, for the layer behind the flowers and foliage.  It was the perfect element to spotlight the flowers and greeting.  The Soft Sky background was embossed with the Simple Stripes Embossing folder.  For added sparkle I finished the card with basic rhinestones.

Go to Hand Stamped Sentiments to be inspired by the design team.  So many beautiful cards!
