This post is a very stunning design that Cammie made using the Fabulous Flamingo #143758 Stampin Up stamp set and the direct to paper inking technique. Cammie added even more interest by adding the delicate Flourish from the Flourish Thinlits #141478. This sassy and yet classy flamingo will show off your stamping skills when you carefully layer all three stamps to create a flamingo worthy of every climate!

The Stampin Up Season to Sparkle has been retired but I recently dusted it off and made a sweet pick me up card for a friend. I loved the Season to Sparkle set but never got around to using it so I gave myself a challenge to use something old before I can start buying new stuff. I often like to pull out sets that have been retired to recharge before loading up on all the new products available.
Trying to get through the winter blues by creating a bright and cheerful card using the Memories and More Color Theory Card Pack #144210 from Stampin Up. Each pack includes 52 double-sided 3″ x 4″ (7.6 x 10.2 cm) cards, 2 each of 26 designs; 20 double-sided 4″ x 6″ (10.2 x 15.2 cm) cards, 2 each of 10 designs; 2 cardstock sticker sheets; 4 printed acetate cards, 1 each 4″ x 6″ (10.2 x 15.2 cm) and 3 each 3″ x 4″ (7.6 x 10.2 cm.) and are perfect for both scrapbooking and card making. Before I added the 2 cards, I textured the card base with the Layered Leaves #143704 Dynamic Textures Impressions Embossing Folder.
I really think this card is fantastic and really sums up a nice vacation away from the cold and snowy blistery winter we have had. The background was textured using the ruffled Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder #143699 from Stampin Up. For the main focal panel, Cammie used her brayering skills and the Touches of Texture #141934 stamp set to dimension and character to her lovely beach scene. She added the realistic looking shells from the So Many Shells #143695 stamp set. The Photographic-inspired shells make this card extraordinary. The sentiment is from the now retired Beachy Little Christmas stamp set from Stampin Up.
Today’s card is another beautiful card featuring the Stampin Up Fabulous Flamingo #143758 stamp set. Cammie created an awesome beach scene using her fabulous brayering skills and then added the details from the Fabulous Flamingo stamp set.
The Fabulous Flamingo is one of my favorite stamp sets in the Stampin Up annual catalog and I have yet to buy it. Cammie’s card featuring the Fabulous Flamingo set #143758 is beautiful when paired with a strip of Fresh Floral DSP #144131. The sassy yet classy flamingo from the Fabulous Flamingo stamp set will show off your stamping skills when you carefully layer all three stamps to create a flamingo worthy of every climate!
Continuing with another beachy card in hopes that winter will be over soon. This card is another fantastic beach scene cards created by Cammie. The focal panel was brayered to create a beautiful beach scene. Cammie embossed the frame of the beach chair in whisper white embossing powder using the Stampin Up Colorful Seasons # 143726 and then added the flamingo pink seat hand cut and added to the frame. The sentiment was cut from the word from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits #137547.
