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!

Love is Love with Nathalie Kalbach and Friends

The Stampendous team is showcasing the fabulous stamps and stencils from Nathalie Kalbach this week, and some of Nathalie's friends have been joining us. There are 3 prize packaages up for grabs, and anyone can win! Visit the Stampendous Blog for full details. I have been thinking a lot about the recent tragedy to the LGBT community in Orlando, and I decided to use Nathalie's Urban Scribble set for today's project. I started off with the foam stamp (the blank side) and colored a rainbow on it using my Tombow Dual Brush markers. I sprayed the foam stamp with a little water to re-wet the colors, and get some nice splotches. I applied the stamp, then I went back with the detail stamp and inked it up with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  Then, using the stencil that comes in the Urban Scribble set, plus the Picasso tool, I stenciled some pixelated clouds in the background. I hand wrote "Love is Love." I decided to not make this a card..but rather some
