Fabulous Flamingos Cards with Eloise and Leanne

Hi everyone, Eloise here and today I have a card to share with you all using Fabulous Flamingos Stamp Set. I created a cluster of leaves at the bottom for my flamingos to sit on and a watercolour stripe background.

To start off I stamped my images onto some white cardstock using black ink. I then coloured them in with Copic Markers and cut them out.

(Copic Markers Used: RV10, RV13, RV25, RV19 / R22, R24, R27, R29 / YG01, YG03, YG07, YG09 / YG61, YG63, YG67, G28 / YG03, YG23, YG13, YG17 / YR00, YR02, YR12, YR18 / BG10, BG11, BG23, BG49 / Y00, Y11, Y17, Y19)

Next, I took a piece of watercolour cardstock and some Winsor and Newton watercolours and painted blue strips horizontally across the piece. I flicked on some clean water and dried it off with a heat tool.

I then added adhesive to the backs of all my images and adhered the leaves at the bottom into place. I then layered over the flowers and adhered my flamingos over the top. For my sentiment I white heat embossed the ‘You’re So Flamazing’ onto a think black strip. I tied a hemp cord bow around one side and adhered it into place.

That finished up my card for today. Thanks so much for stopping by today and I’ll see you next week.

Hi there! Leanne here to share a brightly colored tropical inspired card showcasing the fun images from Fabulous Flamingos. My card is A2 size and features a custom two tone water colored background. To create this background I used two Distress Oxide colors - Wild Honey and Picked Raspberry.

I used a messy water color technique to cover the entire card front. Wild Honey on the top two thirds and Picked Raspberry on the bottom. I tried to make it splotchy to add interest. Next I layered the Frilly Frames Stripes over top. I Copic colored a flamingo along with several leaves and flowers from the Fabulous Flamingos stamp set.

I adhered the images in a clustered arrangement towards the right side of the card using low profile dimensional foam squares. For the greeting, I wanted to combine a stamped and die cut sentiment that could be incorporated into this focal point cluster.

I stamped and heat embossed in white the “you’re so” on black card stock. I trimmed it into a skinny strip with a fish tail end and then tucked under the flamingo. Next I used the Sweet Word die. I created a layered look by cutting the “sweet” twice - one from white glitter card stock and one from black then adhering slightly offset. To finish off this card I added a few clear sequins plus some extra tiny flowers around the main focal point cluster.
