Flamingo Lingo

Every year Stampin' Up! releases a stamp set with a portion of the proceeds going directly to the Ronald McDonald House Charities. The Flamingo Lingo (retiring) set is for the 2014-2015 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue. I sat down and played with this set a few weeks ago and this is what I came up with.... check out my samples below: 

I decided to make a couple "baby" themed cards, since that is something I don't make a lot of. I used the Flamingo, coloured in with Stampin' Write Markers (Calypso Coral and Pumpkin Pie). I randomly stamped the entire background layer of Lost Lagoon with Lost Lagoon Classic ink and the fun flower, which coordinated with the Petite Petals Punch. You've just got to love how simple a punch can make adding dimension to your projects so quick. 

On the next card, I went primarily for a "baby girl" themed card. As I'm not one for too much pink I used mostly corals, but I did use a layer of Blushing Bride - embossed with the Fancy Fan Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (retiring). I coloured the stamp with the markers, the same as the first card - to get the lighter flamingo I just stamped off once. I made the scallops at the top and bottom by cutting one of the Scallop Ovals in half. The cute button coordinated perfectly, they are from the Occasions Catalogue called Sweet Dreams. I hope you like my cards, I have some "Sneak Peek" cards to share tomorrow featuring the new Ronald McDonald House Charities stamp set called Sprinkles of Life.
