Flamingo Messages

Helloooooo!!! It's a big day for me today because I'm turning 40! In honor of that, I decided to share a card I created for Stampendous that is very, very me. I love and collect flamingos, and I have always been the person that tries to stand out. So take a peek at this fun card. The full instructions are below. 

Supplies:
Stampendous:
SSC1278: Flamingo Messages Perfectly Clear Stamp Set
MPW811: Mixed Media White Paper
SSH57: Jumbo Handle

Other:
Imagine: Memento Ink: Angel Pink, Rose Bud, Tuxedo Black, Teal Zeal, Grape Jelly.
               VersaMagic: Turquoise Gem, Pretty Petunia.
Scrapbook Adhesives: EZ-Dots
Pink Cardstock


Directions:
1. On a piece of 3 3/4" x 5 1/4" Mixed Media White Cardstock, stamp the solid flamingo stamp in the center using Angel Pink Memento. Keep in mind that you need to save room for the legs.

2. Stamp the outline of the flamingo with Tuxedo Black Memento.

3. Stamp the wing and legs of the flamingo with Rose Bud Memento.

4. To the left of the pink flamingo, stamp the solid stamp with Turquoise Gem VersaMagic. It will overlap the pink a bit.

5. Stamp the outline of the flamingo with Tuxedo Black Memento.

6. Stamp the wing and legs of the flamingo with Teal Zeal Memento. 

7. To the right of the pink flamingo, stamp the solid stamp with Pretty Petunia VersaMagic. It will overlap the pink a bit.

8. Stamp the outline of the flamingo with Tuxedo Black Memento. 

9. Stamp the wing and legs of the flamingo with Grape Jelly Memento. 

10. Create the card base with pink cardstock and cut it to 4 1/4" X 11." 

11. Adhere the stamped layer with EZ-Dots. 

***Please note, a stamp postioner would be very helpful to create this card. You would be able to ensure the spacing between the flamingos was even. But, as you can see from my sample, it's not required.

Thanks so much for checking out my project today. Have an inspiring day!

Deco Art and Andy Skinner Blog Hop Finale

Hello! It's time for the finale of the DecoArt and Stampendous blog hop. Have you enjoyed yourself this week? I bet you've got some new techniques that you want to try. I know I do! I am super stoked about my project for today. And it solves a dilemma that we've had in my kids' room for a while.

What you see above is 2 pieces of PVC. And some fab DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics! So, what am I doing with PVC, you ask? Well, my mom bought my son a light saber(Darth Vader's) for Christmas, and he wanted to display it, but we weren't really sure where in his room, and how. I wanted something cooler than hooks, and we thought it would be neat to have the light saber vertical, instead of horizontal. Plus, there was a fab spot for it if it hung in that direction. So, my husband came up with the PVC pip idea, and I altered the pieces.



The end cap holds the base, and the small piece of pipe holds up near the end. And the 2 pieces are spaced out enough so that it's easy…
