I LOVE Flamingos!

Enough is enough!  I’ve been home for two weeks and it’s time to get the show on the road!  It’s time to start posting to my blog again!  Sheesh!

The first week I was back I was trying to recover from jetlag (boy does that wipe you out!) and plan for a couple of stamping parties as well as my August card buffet.  Both parties went well and I’m excited for the next one coming up.  This past week was spent doing the stamping parties and designing for my upcoming August Card Buffet Class.

Fabulous Flamingo.0617But you don’t care about all that!  You want to see some fun cards!  Today’s card features the flamingo!  There is something about flamingos that I absolutely LOVE!  It could be because they are PINK!  🙂

This meant the Fabulous Flamingo stamp set was one of the first ones that I had to have from Stampin’ Up!’s new 2017-2018 Annual Catalog!  I designed this card for a swap I participated in and we also made it at my last class.

The body of the flamingo is a 3 stamp process and the legs are another 2 step process.  One of my favorite parts of this card is how the water turned out.  I stamped all of the images on Shimmery White card stock.  The water stamp is just the line image you see but then I took my Aqua Painter and “smeared” the line image a bit.  It really looks nice.  I waited for the water to dry before stamping the grass images so that they wouldn’t smear.

Not only do I like flamingos but I like whales too.  Of course, now that I’ve been to Thailand elephants rate right up there too.  What are some of your favorite animals?  Leave a comment and let me know!

Have a great day!  Take care and Happy Stamping!
