Stampin’ Up! Fabulous Flamingo for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

I used the Fabulous Flamingo stamp set from Stampin’ Up! to create my card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop today.  We’ve got a color challenge this week and this is what I created for it.

Here are the colors that we’re using this week:

The design for my card was inspired by the Fusion Sketch this week.

My card also works for the Tic Tac Toe Challenge #TTTC012.  I went right down the middle.

I started by embossing a panel of Flirty Flamingo card stock with the Layered Leaves Embossing Folder.  I adhered the embossed panel with Multipurpose Liquid Glue to the front of a Flirty Flamingo card base.  Then I added two panels from the Pick a Pattern DSP pack, using SNAIL to adhere them, over the card front.

I inked the solid flamingo image from the Fabulous Flamingo photopolymer stamp set in Flirty Flamingo ink, stamped it on scrap paper and then stamped it on a panel of Whisper White card stock.  I added the lined flamingo image in Basic Black Archival ink over the solid image and then stamped the full bird image in Flirty Flamingo ink over the first two images.

I cut the flamingo image out with a Layering Ovals Framelits Die and then stamped the palm branch and grass images from the Fabulous Flamingo stamp set in Emerald Envy ink around the bird.  I adhered the die cut image to the card front with SNAIL and then wrapped a strand of Basic Black Solid Baker’s Twine around the card front and tied a bow.

I stamped the sentiment from the Feather Together photopolymer stamp set in Basic Black ink on a strip of Whisper White card stock.   I punched the end with the Banner Triple Punch and then adhered it to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added one of the Black Rhinestone Jewels (available Sept 1) next to the sentiment to finish the card front.

I stamped the sentiment from the Birthday Delivery photopolymer stamp set in Basic Black ink and the flamingo images in Flirty Flamingo, Basic Black and Emerald Envy inks on a panel of Whisper White card stock inside the card.

    • Thanks Julie, we’ve asked Kristi to fix the link…she’s out on the west coast so it’s really early there when our posts go live. Hopefully she’ll get it fixed ASAP. 🙂
