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!

Holiday Spirit: Aurora Wings Challenge #73

Seasons Greetings! Today I have a project for the latest Aurora Wings Challenge which is "Holiday Spirit." I decided to take the theme as a two-fer. Not only is this a holiday card, but the "spirits" are flowing too.

I used the Wine Sprite for my card, and gave her a Merlot look. I colored her with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. Here's a closeup.

I found a lovely paper in my stash from Wild Rose Studio from their Holly Lane collection. For my sentiment, I had some pretty red glitter cardstock from DCWV that I die cut with an old alphabet set from QuicKutz. I also added some sequins from a few different Sparkle Blends from Doodles Paper Playground. The sequins and the sentiment were all glued on with On Point Glue from Imagine.

On my card base, I inked the edges with Antique Linen Distress Ink, and then Peeled Paint Distress Ink. After I adhered my background to my base, I added Rock Candy Stickles to the edges. This gave just a touch of sparkle.

Arnold Grummer and Stampendous Collaboration Part 1

Hello! This is an exciting post for me because I am part of a 2 week "Earth Day" blog hop between Stampendous and Arnold Grummer. If you have visited my blog before, you know how much I already love Stampendous. But Arnold Grummer was new to me. They make paper making supplies. This is something I have never done before. And truthfully, I was never interested in doing. I thought it was so much work to make one sheet of paper, it would take all day, etc. But, when I was asked if I wanted to be a part of this hop, I thought about it and decided that I love trying new crafts, so I should give it a shot. And guess what? I had a blast! My daughter (who is 10) and I decided to tackle this project together, and we came up with 4 beautiful sheets of paper in just over an hour.
 I think that once we play with the process a little more, and organize the flow of our work space, we could probably make the sheets a little faster, but I was really happy with what we accomplished in a pret…
