Hello and Happy Monday!! Laurie here to share a fun little card made using some stamps and dies that were released awhile ago!!
I went through my stash of SK goodies and came across the Pink Winter stamp set. This set is technically a Winter/Christmas themed set but the builder sentiments and flamingo image can be used year round!! The dies I chose to use were the Elongated Dotted Hexagons. These are such a cool shape and the dual dotted detail is awesome!
I die cut the largest hexagon out of some Lawn Fawn patterned paper…I love their paper pads, as they give so much inspiration for colour!! I also cut this same die out of some pink fun foam to give the entire piece dimension. I die cut the medium hexagon out of white cardstock to layer on top. Before adhering my flamingo to that hexagon, I lightly blended some Scattered Straw Distress Ink to bring in some yellow from the patterned paper. I then adhered the flamingo using foam adhesive.
For the sentiment, I used words from the Pink Winter stamp set to create “my fine feathered friend” and stamped those onto the banner die from the Darling Ribbon and Dotted Frames Creative Die Set. For the “hi” part of the sentiment, I used the Duo Talk stamp set. I simply stamped the “hi” in a pink ink and fussy cut it out.
Before adhering all the pieces, I wanted to jazz up the cardbase. I used the Falling Snow Stencil from Simon Says Stamp and a light grey ink. I also used the cute little heart image that is part of the Duo Talk stamp set in the same pink ink I used for the word “hi”.
I trimmed down my cardbase by 1/2″ to make a smaller card. The fact that it is the exact same width as the banner die is a complete fluke 🙂 I also foam mounted the “hi” onto the banner to give a litter more dimension.
To finish off, I added Glossy Accents to the flamingo’s beak and eye and also the HI, and some glitter pen to the dots on the background.
I think this card is pretty cute! I hope you enjoyed!
Until next time….
