Fabulous Flamingo SunsetThank You Card

I used the sponge daubers to blend Peekaboo Peach and Berry Burst ink on a 4″ X 5 1/4″ Whisper White cardstock.

Then I stamped the flamingo, water, grass and leaves in Basic Black ink.

I stamped “Thanks” on Peekaboo Peach cardstock and cut out a flag shape around it.

I layered a scrap of white doily with the flag and attached it in the corner.

I attached the flamingo picture to a Peekaboo Peach card base measuring 5 1/2″ X 8 1/2″ and scored at 4 1/4″

Finally I tied a bow with Linen Thread

Fabulous Flamingo Birthday Delivery Card

To create this card I use Powder Pink, Flirty Flamingo and Basic Black ink to create the flamingo on a 2 3/4″ X 4 1/4″ Whisper White cardstock.

I stamp “Happy” from the New Tabs for Everything stamp set in Dapper Denim and “Birthday” in Basic Black

Then adhered that to Pool Party cardstock 3″ X 4 1/2″

I cut 1 1/4″ X 4″ strip from Birthday Delivery designer series paper (dsp)

I cut a balloon and party hat from the Birthday Delivery dsp using the Birthday Delivery thinlit dies

I attached the hat with a glue dot and the balloon with a dimensional

Finally I assembled the card as shown in the picture above on Dapper Denim card base 5 1/2″ X 8 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″

Our daughter sent us this adorable picture of our granddaughter next to the flamingos in her matching pink jacket and knew this stamp set would create the perfect layout to show her off.

First I stamped the flamingo with Powder Pink, Flirty Flamingo and Basic Black ink and fussy cut it out.

I used scraps of designer series paper from Delightful Daisy, In Colors, Birthday Delivery and Velum to layer behind the picture.

I stamped the background in Crumbcake ink with the Timeless Textures stamp set. I used the stamp off meathod so the ink was not so saturated.

I really love this stamp set.  I have plans to create many more cards using it. I was even thinking of a Santa hat for a Christmas card.  The ideas are endless.

If you are looking for a stamp set that has popular and trendy images, this set is for you!
