I hope you all had a fun 4th of July and enjoyed a nice long holiday weekend.
Time to get back to work for most of us... sometimes the holidays just aren't long enough.
Since its been so warm here and feeling like the tropics, I've made a cute flirty flamingo card to share with you today.
This stamp set is from the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog 2016-2017. Its called "Pop of Paradise." I also used the "Pop of Pink" designer paper which compliments this card perfectly. I'm taking full advange of using this set this summer. I love making bright summery cards and in PA, summer doesn't last very long, so I've got to make these cards while I still can!
I used 3 variations of ink to stamp the flamingos: pink pirouette, flirty flamingo and melon mambo. The verse was stamped in basic black archival ink and die cut with the "Sweet and Sassy" Framelit dies.
I added the new black metallic thread, which I wrapped around 3 of my fingers and then attached it in place with dimensionals under the heart. I added a few rhinestone jewels for some sparkle.
Here's another variation of this card only I changed a couple of the colors on the card. I used blushing bride, flirty flamingo and calypso coral.
This time I wrapped basic black bakers twine around the card and added a flirty flamingo "Enamel Shape" to the bow.
Here's a photo of both cards:
Have a great week and thanks for visiting today.
Until the next time...
Keep on Stampin' and Come back again soon!
