When I first received my package, containing the April release, I was ecstatic to get a chance to play with the flamingo stamp sets. I quickly put ink to my stamps and got to work, and today I'm sharing two cards using the new summery stamp sets.
Process: Seamless stamp was stamped and then colored in with Polychromos Pencils. The die cut flowers were inked using Paper Pouncers and Distress Oxide Inks and added on top of die cut leaves. The heat embossed sentiment was die cut and tucked in. The card front was added to a white card base. Gems were added to the centers of the flowers for a final touch of sparkle.

Process: The large flamingo image was stamped onto pink card stock with black ink. The flower was shaded using white, a mid-tone gray, and a dark gray colored pencil. The image was then die cut, and an additional piece of black foam was die cut with same die. The white panel was stamped repeatedly with the rose image from the stamp set. Strips of cut cardstock (1/8" and 1/2" cuts) were layered to create the stripes and adhered before the sentiment was stamped. The card front was then added to a black card base, and sequins added for some sparkle.
