I will be sharing projects using the Friendly Flamingo Bundle this week – and to start, here are two cards I made yesterday on my Facebook Live.   These flamingos just make me happy – they are fresh and fun!   If you missed my Facebook Live, you can watch the replay below!

First up was a super simple card –  I used the largest die in the Stitched with Whimsy Dies set- don’t miss them in the January – June catalog – they are a great and easy way to add some detail to your cards.

For the flamingos, I used Flirty Flamingo cardstock and for the center flamingo, I used my favorite polka dot pattern of Flirty Flamingo in the 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper Assortments – Brights.  These paper assortments are all retiring – I am going to miss this polka dot pattern!

MEASUREMENTS:  Card One – You’re Outstanding

  • Basic White Thick – 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, scored at 4 1/4;1/2 x 2 for word panel
  • Pieces of Flirty Flamingo Cardstock and Flirty Flamingo Polka Dot pattern from the Brights DSP Stack
  • Small pieces of Basic Black cardstock for eyes

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Use the largest Stitched with Whimsy Die to add some stitching to the card front.
  2. Crop the three flamingos and wings with the Flamingo dies with the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine.
  3. Use Tombo Liquid Glue to adhere a small piece of Basic Black cardstock onto the back of the flamingos – for the eyes.
  4. Adhere flamingos to card front with Tombo Liquid Glue. Add wings with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  5. Stamp words with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink onto the word panel and use paper snips to angle the end.
  6. Tie a bow with Black and White Baker’s Twine and adhere behind words with a glue dot.
  7. Position word panel/bow onto card front with a dimensional.   Tip:  the “bulk” of the bow will raise the left side of the word panel enough that a dimensional won’t be needed on that end.  You’ll only need to use a dimensional on the right-hand side of the word panel.  Quick and easy card!

For the second card, I stamped the flamingo with Flirty Flamingo Ink onto a piece of Basic White cardstock and cropped it with the coordinating die. I love all the detail in this flamingo stamp!  I wanted to create a feel of the tropics and pull in some greenery, so I used the retiring Forever Greenery DSP.

MEASUREMENTS:  Card Two:  Hoping Your Day is as Amazing as You Are

  • Flirty Flamingo- 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, scored at 4 1/4
  • Basic White:  4 x 5 1/2 for rectangle; 4 1/4 x 3 for flamingo; inside panel 4 x 5 1/4
  • Forever Greenery DSP:  striped piece 3 1/2 x 3/4; two strips for the leaves.

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Stamp the flamingo onto the Basic White panel and crop with coordinating die.  Crop the Stitched Rectangle from the Basic White panel.
  2. Adhere the Basic White panel to the inside of the card.
  3. Use two strips of the Forever Greenery DSP in pattern shown in photo and cut two of the leaf/stems.
  4. Adhere the striped piece of DSP to cardfront with Stampin’ Seal.
  5. Use Tombo Liquid Glue to adhere the leaves to the stitched rectangle.  Adhere Flamingo with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  6. Adhere the Rectangle panel to the card front with Stampin’ Seal or Tombo Liquid Glue.
  7. To finish the card, embellish with three Elegant Faced Gems. I used the pink – but any of them would work.
