I just got the Flamingo Lingo stamp set from Stampin’ Up! and couldn’t wait to use it! In case you missed it, this set is inside the back cover of the 2014-15 Annual Catalog and Stampin’ Up! donates $3 to the Ronald McDonald House Charities every time this stamp set is purchased.
My card design was inspired by the Mojo Monday #353 Sketch.
I started by embossing a panel of Tangerine Tango card stock with the Large Polka Dots Embossing Folder. I adhered the embossed panel to a panel of Blushing Bride card stock with SNAIL, then to a Crushed Curry card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I adhered a panel of Flowerpot DSP to a panel of Blushing Bride card stock, then to the card front with SNAIL. Then I cut a strip of the Flowerpot DSP and I adhered it to a strip of Blushing Bride card stock that I’d cut on one side with the Small Scallop Stampin’ Trimmer Rotary Cutting Blade, then to the card front with SNAIL.
I inked up the flamingo image from the Flamingo Lingo stamp set in Blushing Bride ink and I used the Blender Pen to remove the ink from the legs and beak. I colored the legs with a Crushed Curry Stampin’ Write Marker and the beak with a Tangerine Tango Stampin’ Write Marker and I stamped the image on a panel of Whisper White card stock. I adhered the image to a tag that I’d punched from Blushing Bride card stock with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch along the top and the Scallop Edge Border Punch along the bottom. I added two very thin strips of Flowerpot DSP above and below the image on the tag, adhering them with a tiny bit of Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
I colored the flower image from the Flamingo Lingo stamp set with my Stampin’ Write Markers, stamped it twice on a Whisper White panel, punched it out with the Petite Petals Punch and adhered the images to the card front with Glue Dots. I punched a flower punch from the Flowerpot DSP and from Blushing Bride card stock with the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack punch, adhered them with Glue Dots to the tag and added small Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the centers. Then I colored the sentiment from the Flamingo Lingo stamp set with my Stampin’ Write Markers, stamped it on a Whisper White panel, cut it out with the matching Bitty Banners Framelits Die and adhered it with SNAIL to the tag. I pulled a piece of Crushed Curry 3/4″ Chevron Ribbon through the tag, tied it with Tangerine Tango Baker’s Twine, then adhered the completed tag to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I stamped the flamingo image again on a Whisper White panel inside the card using the same technique with the Blender Pen to remove the Blushing Bride ink.
