2 Pink Flamingos



Happy Hump Day Peeps!!! The week is half over, and we have a long weekend coming up!

I decide to take a break from sketches for a day or two and make a couple of cards just for the heck of it! I wanted to use some of the new DS paper I just got. This one is from the Pink Flamingo Pack. WOW!! That paper is fun, lots of bright colors!

The first card is made with cameo coral, real red and summer sun. I started with the base in coral and then some real red and followed that with two pieces of the DS paper, one has all the colors from the pack and the piece on the side is just summer sun.

The center elements are made up of one of the flowers from the Fifth Avenue Floral set and the sentiment is from Best Yet. I stamped the flower in versamark onto some scrap red and coral and embossed with white embossing powder and cut out. I added some pop dots to them and attached to the sentiment panel. The side/middle element is real red card stock that I used my EK Success wavy border punch on one side and pierced the other. I added some white ribbon and red brads.

This next card, I just used one of the colors from the DS paper. Tempting Turquoise.



Funny how two cards made from the same DS pack of paper can be soooo different.

My base is whisper white, followed by some tempting turquoise and then the DS paper. I used the set Great Friend for this one.

Very simple and quick card. I have another one I am working on with this DS paper and it looks completely different as well. I will have that one tomorrow if it makes the cut! LOL!

Well, that is all for today, thanks so much for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!
