Fabulous Flamingo with the Stamp Review Crew

Fabulous Flamingo Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! Card Created by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! for the Stamp Review Crew Blog Hop

Fabulous Flamingo!  

What more can I say other than I think it is just FABULOUS!  I decided to go with a non-traditional look to the flamingo and went dual colored!  Coastal Cabana on the top and Flirty Flamingo on the bottom.  What do you think?  It is one of my favorite color combinations so I just have to give it a go.  

Fabulous Flamingo Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! Card Created by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! for the Stamp Review Crew Blog Hop

Step-by-Step Instructions: 

  1. With a Stampin’ Trimmer, cut a piece of Flirty Flamingo card stock to 4 1/4″ x 11″.  Score and fold at 5 1/2″.
  2. Cur a piece of Shimmery White Cardstock to 4 x 5 1/4″.  Stamp the water ripples, grass and flamingo legs, as shown, in Jet Black StazOn Ink.  Use an Aqua Painter to add Coastal Cabana ink  (water).  Adhere with Snail Adhesive. 
  3. Stamp two flamingo images in Jet Black StazOn Ink onto Shimmery White Cardstock.  Use an Aqua Painter to color the top in Coastal Cabana and bottom in Flirty Flamingo.  Snip with a Paper Snips. Adhere as shown with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Tip:  I added two layers of dimensionals to the darker flamingo to make it look like it was closer to you. 
  4. Stamp the “I Love You…” and “Happy Birthday” (Itty Bitty Sentiments) in Versamark Ink onto Basic Black Cardstock.  Cover with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  Flick to remove excess and set with a heat tool.  Snip to size with a Paper Snips.  Adhere the Happy Birthday as shown with Snail Adhesive. 
  5. Cut a 6 inch piece of Flirty Flamingo 1/8″ ribbon (All My Love Ribbon Pack).  Wrap and adhere behind the love sentiment.  Adhere to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  6. Add three black Best Route Enamel Dots as shown for the final touch.

The sketched look to the flamingo makes this stamp set easy to use as the lines are forgiving and do not need to be perfect.  Instead of coloring the flamingo with an Aqua Painter, you could use the solid stamp images to build the flamingo using 2-step stamping.

The Best Route Enamel Shapes and the Flirty Flamingo Ribbon from the All My Love Ribbon Pack were perfect touches for this card.  Any enamel shape is a staple in my craft room and is a go-to to add that final pop that a card may need.

The focal point of this card: “So Happy To Have You In My Life” is from an all new stamp set called Amazing Life.  I absolutely LOVE the mix fonts and the sentiments say exactly what I feel. This set is Photopolymer (clear) and is also part of a bundle (shown below).

Watercolor Paper from Stampin’ Up! is extremely high quality and perfect for those watercolor wash backgrounds.  I used Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry, and Early Espresso as my background, which mimics the colors of Watercolor Pencils I used to color in the sentiment.

Humming Along with #tgifc193 Color Challenge

Humming Along and Itty Bitty Birthdays Cling Stamp Sets by Stampin' Up! Card Created by Artisan Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! for the #tgifc193 Color Challenge

TGIF! I am finally back to play along!
Now that the holiday’s have past and we are wrapping up the final items from my MIL passing, I can finally start playing along / designing for blog challenges again.  I didn’t get a lot of time to work on this post, but at least I was able to finish a project and get it on my blog!   This color combination is fabulous and I decided to ink up my new CLING stamp set, Humming Along! What a beauty, don’t you think?

Humming Along and Itty Bitty Birthdays Cling Stamp Sets by Stampin' Up! Card Created by Artisan Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! for the #tgifc193 Color Challenge

Step-by-Step Instructions: 

  1. Use a Stampin’ Trimmer to cut a piece of Whisper White Thick Cardstock to 4 1/4 x 11″. Score and fold at 5 1/2″.
  2. Cut a piece of Whisper White Cardstock to 3 7/8 x 5″.  Stamp the “Happy Birthday” sentiment and hummingbird image in 2nd generation (stamp on scrap paper prior to the cardstock) Smoky Slate Ink, as shown.  Adhere to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 
  3. Stamp the flower image in Jet Black StazOn Ink onto Shimmery White Cardstock.  Color with an Aqua Painter and ink from the cover of Stampin’ Pad. (Mango Melody and Lemon Lime Twist). Crop with the Big Shot, Magnetic Platform and coordinating framelit die.  Stamp another image, color and snip out the center.  Adhere to the center of the flower and to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 
  4. Stamp the Happy Birthday in Versamark Ink onto Basic Black Cardstock.  Cover with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  Flick to remove excess and set with a Heat Tool.  Snip to size (I use a Paper Snips) and adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  5. Add three Lovely Lipstick Enamel Dots as shown.

In hindsight, I would change up my 2nd layer to Whisper White Cardstock, instead of Shimmery White Cardstock.  Since I changed my layout to only the flower having a pop of color, the Shimmery White Cardstock was not necessary.  It looks good, but it would have looked better with the bright white on bright white.

The Humming Along Cling Mount Bundle is a new to the 2019 Occasions Catalog.  Don’t have a copy of the catalog?  You can download a copy here or order a FREE paper copy here.  This bundle retails for $42.25, add some beautiful ribbon or a favorite embellishment to your order to bump it to $50 and you qualify for a FREE Level 1 Sale-a-Bration Item AND my January Hoot Loot (any item $10 or less).  You can view the Sale-a-Bration flyer here or order a FREE copy from me here. 

Adding color to Shimmery White Cardstock with an Aqua Painter and some ink from the cover of a Stampin’ Pad is an easy way to make a stamped image pop!  The flower was colored with Mango Melody and Lemon Lime Twist ink.  I just love that pop of pink!
