Fabulous Flamingo for TGIFC#165

Hello Stampers!

How about a bright and cheery card today? This card has some of my favorite colors. I do tend to like bright, strong colors. I struggle with dark, neutral colors.

The TGIF Crew posted a really bright color challenge this week…just perfect for me.

 

Here is my card: Fabulous Flamingo for TGIFC#165

Look at all these bright colors! I was inspired by the picture as well as all the cards created by the TGIFC Team. Make sure you check out all their cards. You can see them by clicking HERE.

I layered three colors on the front of this card to make it extra bright. Just pulling in the colors by using them as a border makes your card more interesting. I then pulled the Coastal Cabana water from the base of the card by using the Glitter Dots.  These dots draw your eye up and make you travel around the card. Wink of Stella on the flamingo make her nice and shiny. Bling makes every card better doesn’t it?

These Glitter Enamel Dots are great for a card that is going through the mail. That are very flat and (hopefully) won’t get crushed by the postal machine.

This card was so bright and sparkly I decided to use the sentiment “You Dazzle Me” from Pocketful of Sunshine.  Perfect match up from 2 stamp sets. Love it when that happens.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.

Happy Stamping!

Happy Monday Stamping Friends!

Did you get in a stamp time this weekend? I had a very productive day yesterday. That means I will be sharing some new creations this week.

Today I am participating in a Freshly Made Sketches Challenge. This sketch is simple yet versatile.

I can honestly say this may be the simplest card I have ever created and I love it! Maybe I can learn to create simple after all …

Friends of SUBA Present Retiring Products

Welcome to the April Friends of SUBA Blog Hop. This month we are focusing on Stampin’ Up! Retiring Products. Some of my favorite products are in the current Annual Catalog and you still have time to purchase them. Lucky you! Don’t procrastinate because they are available through May 31 or while supplies last. 

You may have arrived from Stampin’ n Crafting with Cheryldiana or you are just starting here with Ginny Harrell @ Celebrate the Journey. If you happen to get off track or lost just scroll down to the bottom and you will see the entire list of participants.

Watercolor Wings is the all-around winner for cardmakers.

My first two cards use the Watercolor Wings stamp. I have used this one set so much I am not sure what I will do without it. This stamp makes beautiful birthday cards, thinking of you cards, sympathy cards, baby cards, thank you cards – Watercolor Wings works for everything.

I created a soft card as a sympathy card and then I created second card with the same layout, but it is bolder and a little more fun. I left it blank, so I can use it for any occasion.

Which one is your favorite? Bold or soft?

Did you notice I also used retiring ink colors? We will be saying so long to Marina Mist and Island Indigo.

Cool Treats is one of those retiring stamp sets that never got much attention.

Created by Ginny Harrell #Cool Treats #Stampin’ Up! Retiring Products

Cool Treats is the perfect stamp set if you have young children or teenagers. Everyone loves ice cream. For this card I bunched the sweet treats on the left side, cut up the sentiment and added a small strip of DSP. A quick and easy card.

Please note: All DSP retires every year, except this year the Wood Textures DSP is carrying over. Yippee! I love it when Stampin’ Up listens to our suggestions.

If this is the first time that you have come across our SUBA blog hops and are wondering what SUBA stands for – well it stands for “Simply Unique Business Angels”. You can find out more about what our talented friends Louise Sims and Pip Todman are doing, click SU Business Angels. They will love to help with any online business needs. You may sell Stampin’ Up, or make-up, essential oils, or candles. They still have much to offer you.

Please spend some time looking through the Retiring Products today. Some great stamp sets and supplies will be disappearing soon.
