Get ready to order this super fun, new Stampin' UP! Fabulous Flamingo set on June 1, 2017!
I was thrilled to receive this fun Fabulous Flamingo stamp set at the Stampin' Up! April OnStage event in San Diego! I knew right away I was going to love playing with bright colors to create projects with this stamp set!! If you are looking for it in the new Stampin' Up! catalog, you'll find it on page 177.
One night when we were mall walking and eating dinner in the mall, we sat in Johnny Rockets eating and as I looked across the mall to the stores on the other side, I was looking at this flamingo display in the Vans shoe store ... and of course my mind was thinking... OH I have that new Fabulous Flamingo stamp set from the new Stampin' Up! catalog!! I need to make a card like this!! :)
I have a fun tip for you .. get more mileage out of your punches (or dies) by altering the shape after you punch! As you can see for my Tickled Pink label, I punched Whisper White cardstock with the Pretty Label punch first, then just cut off the top and bottom scalloped parts!
Color Combo Tip:
This is my Stampin' Up! Color Combo for this card. I find it helpful to take a photo of the ink pads I use when stamping, just in case I want to recreate the project, or if someone asks me weeks or months down the road, and my memory has failed :)
You'll notice from the stamps in the set that it is a "3 step" stamp set.. there are 2 layers of solid images and 1 layer that is an outline for stamping the flamingo. I stamped the most solid image in Flirty Flamingo ink, then the next solid image with Calypso coral, and then the outline in black.
I stamped the water in Bermuda Bay and then used the aquapainter and water to go over it, and then I decided to use my Clear Wink of Stella on the water, too.
The leaf stamp is in the set, too, and I stamped it in Lemon Lime Twist for a fun bright finish to this card.
