Friendly Flamingo - CASE the Catalog for Facebook Live

Hello everyone! Yesterday, I did a Facebook Live video sharing a card using the new Friendly Flamingo Bundle, which is available in the Stampin’ Up!® January-June Mini Catalog. 

Please join me over on on my *Stampin’ Anne Facebook Page*, where do Live videos sharing fun Stampin’ Up!® projects. My set time for Facebook Live is Friday at 4:00pm CST, however I have been trying to pop on more often. Be sure to “Like” and “Follow” my Facebook Page so you get the notifications. If you can’t make it Live, you can always watch the replay. Also, I’d like to invite you to join my Stampin’ Anne Facebook Group for more updates, promotions, upcoming classes and exclusive projects. Everyone is welcome!

*To check out the video for how this card was made, click here: Friendly Flamingo CASE the Catalog Facebook LiveI’ve also listed the measurements, the supply list AND an alternative card idea below!
When I get new products, I like to use the project samples in the catalog as a starting point for creative inspiration. There are SO many awesome ideas in the catalog and it’s a fun way to dig into those new products and start using them. I find as I start to make the sample, I will change up colors, layers and details to put my own spin on the project. 

This Friendly Flamingo stamp set and coordinating Flamingo Dies are already a favorite! I just love the detail in the stamped images. Plus, you can’t go wrong with a pink flamingo, right?

Color Combo:
Card Measurements and Details: 
  • Granny Apple Green Card Base: 4-1/4” x 11”, scored at 5-1/2”

  • Whisper White Cardstock: scrap to die cut one flamingo “feather” then stamp feather with the flamingo stamp in Magenta Madness ink, pop up with a Stampin Dimensionals on flamingo body
  • Whisper White Cardstock (sentiment): 1/2” x 1-1/2”, stamp sentiment in Tuxedo Black Momento ink and cut either end at an angle

  • Magenta Madness 2020-2021 In Colors Designer Series Paper (inside card): 3/4” x 5-1/4” 
Here is a little peek inside the card. I decided to leave the inside sentiment blank until I was ready to mail the card. 
I initially started the watercolor wash on the first card using Highland Heather ink. I didn’t want it to go to waste, so I created a second card with it. For this card I used the Playing With Patterns Designer Series Paper for the background. The card still has that pop of pink but the Purple Posy in the paper adds a softer look. Instead of rhinestones, I colored pearls with Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends and added a Magenta Madness bow in place of the baker’s twine. The sentiment is stamped in Gorgeous Grape ink
