It was 71 degrees here this afternoon and bright blue skies, perfect for stamping with Fabulous Flamingo! It won't last but it was nice! I had a lot of fun making my card for this week's Stamp Review Crew Hop and I can't wait to see how everyone else used this set. If you haven't hopped with us before we're and international group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators who all use the same stamp set on our hops. We hope it brings you lots of inspiration for using Fabulous Flamingo yourself. In case you get lost along the way or if you'd just like more information about The Stamp Review Crew just click the banner or link above and you'll find what you're looking for!
If you didn't start with my blog then you probably hopped over from Charlet Mallett's Blog, Painted Orange. Charlet always bring "fabulous" inspiration to our hops!
Fabulous Flamingo is a Two-Step stamp set, meaning you layer up a few of the images to get the complete image. This one turns out so pretty! Here's how I used that Fabulous Flamingo.
I thought the flamingo made a super fun shaker card! Of course, I had to stamp it in Flirty Flamingo. I used the new Rectangle Stitched Framelit Dies to create the shaker window. These dies will be getting a lot of use on my cards! I love the way they leave a stitched line on the card and on the cut out. That's how my Flirty Flamingo frame has a double stitched line around it. Sometimes I think the sequins can get a bit lost by always staying at the bottom of the shaker window. I remedied that by add a few of the Basic Adhesive Backed Sequins to the back first of the stamped panel before adding some Iridescent sequins onto it. Then the Window Sheet panel was added over everything. I even used the smallest rectangle die to cut out the Congratulations sentiment from Fabulous Flamingo. I'll be sending this to a friend's daughter who was just accepted to the nursing program. She loves blue so I had to use that sweet piece of Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper for the background. I tied it all up with a piece of the Sale-A-Bration ribbon that matches perfectly!
Inside the card is another sentiment from Fabulous Flamingo.
That's it for me today! Thanks for hopping by and I hope you'll hop the whole way around to see what everyone has created using Fabulous Flamingo. You'll head to Heidi Baks blog next, RunningwScissorsStamper, to see what "fabulous" project she has for us.
