It Fabulous Flamingo time! The Stamp Review Crew is featuring projects using the Fabulous Flamingo stamp set. The Stamp Review Crew are an international group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators that gets together to do a blog hop on the first and third Monday of each month featuring a single stamp set.
I love Flamingos. They are such a beautiful bird. With Valentine’s day around the corner I decided to play off the pink and create a couple of Valentine’s Day card. This card is all about HEARTS! I used the new ‘Be Mine stitched heart framelit dies’. These dies are featured in the new Occasions mini catalog and were seriously my first purchase! The neck of the flamingo creates a heart when mirror flipped so I had to try the old mirror stamping technique using the Stamparatus and the silicon craft mat. If you are not familiar with how to do this I created a simple tutorial and video in this previous post. Since this flamingo image is a four-step stamped image I need to mirror stamp the components all four times. It was a little tricky to align at first but all worked out in the end. What do you think? Kind of fun, these kissing Flamingos …
Often when I craft I have multiple stamped images and die cut pieces left over. I’ve used a few of those up to create a second Valentine card.
Do you like the border of intricate lace hearts? It’s such a cool die, plus when cut you get all sorts of tiny hearts to use elsewhere. This die is also included in the Be Mine Stitched framelits. The Large white heart comes from the inside (negative space) of the scalloped heart shape from the first card. The fun pink papers on both cards come from the Tropical Escape 6x6 Designer Series papers.
