I used the Stampin’ Up! Fabulous Flamingo stamp set to create my card for the Fab Friday sketch challenge this week. As most of you read this, I’ll be heading out the door to attend the Stampin’ Up! OnStage event in Charlotte, NC!! Yippee!!!
Here is the sketch for Fab Friday 161. I flipped the sketch to portrait for my card. 🙂 Be sure to stop by the challenge blog to play along too!
I started by adhering a panel from the Tropical Escape 6″ x 6″ DSP to a Granny Apple Green card base with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. Then I cut a panel of Basic Black card stock with one of the larger Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies and adhered it with Multipurpose Liquid Glue to the card front.
I stamped the images from the Fabulous Flamingo photopolymer stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento, Blushing Bride, Granny Apple Green, Shaded Spruce and Bermuda Bay inks on a panel of Whisper White card stock. The solid body image for the flamingo and some of the palm leaves were stamped on scrap paper once before stamping on the panel.
***Quick Tip: I find the flamingo easiest to stamp in this order:
- Lined image of the body
- Almost full image (the one that includes the legs)
- Solid body image
- Lined leg image
I cut the flamingo image out with a Rectangle Stitched Framelits die and adhered it to a panel of Granny Apple Green card stock with SNAIL. I adhered the layered panel to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment from the Fabulous Flamingo stamp set in VersaMark ink on a panel of Shaded Spruce card stock, sprinkled it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed it.
I cut the sentiment out with one of the small Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies and adhered it with SNAIL to the card front. I added one of the Petal Pink Rhinestone Gems next to the sentiment to finish the card front.
I stamped the sentiment from the Fabulous Flamingo stamp set in Blushing Bride ink and added a strip of Tropical Escape DSP to a Whisper White card stock panel on the inside of the card.
You can see a list of supplies used to create this card, including card stock cuts, at the very bottom of this blog post.
