Stampin' Up!

Are you ready to Flamingle?

This flamingo looks like it’s ready to flamingle!

When I first showed this card to my husband, his response was “sexy card”…

Now that comment may have been because he was missing me (as I was away, at the time); OR it could be that there is actually something, a little bit sexy about this card.

Inspiration Tip: Are you wondering where I got my inspiration from, for this card? The answer is Pinterest of course! Now, I didn’t CASE anyone else’s card. I simply typed in the word flamingo & hit the search button. Up came loads of images & I pinned my faves to an inspiration board. 

To create my sunset background I used a sponge brayer from Stampin’ Up! & gradually started adding layers of colour until I was happy with the results. Pssst!! I didn’t get quite get it right on my first attempt, so this is my second go at the background, sometimes that’s just the way it goes.

In my mind I wanted to create a heat embossed solid glossy black silhouette for the flamingo, but again it wasn’t to be…might’ve been that I’d only had 3.5hrs sleep the night before (what happens at scrap camp, stays at scrap camp ;-)…). So in going with the flow, I embraced the slightly lighter black & grey results & happily moved on.

I chose a couple of different colours of purple to stamp the water (which is also heat embossed) & the grass/reeds. I ended up using one of those purples for my sentiment which is from the Jar of Love stamp set.

It’s no secret that I’m a fan of bling & sparkly things ….I mean I have a Pinterest board called “Pretty Things & Bling” & another that’s all about cards with sequins…so obviously I felt I need to add something to this card. Luckily for me I had some clear/irridescent sequins in my stash (you can get them in the Stampin’ Up! Metallics Sequin assortment). I adhered 3 of these to my card with a tiny dot of glue for each using the Fine Tip Glue Pen.

All that was left to do was to chose a colour for my card base & put it all together. I went with Night of Navy, it was a perfect fit!

Personally, I think there IS a little bit of “sumthin’ sumthin'” going on in this card…

But tell me what do you think?

Does it make you want to flamingle?

Much Love, K xo

PS. I think we all need to get a little crazy, blow off some steam & flamingle from time to time…even if it is just laughing with your bestie until the early hours of the morning :-).
