A Little Flamingo Thank You

The flamingo images on Tickled Pink (and coordinating thin dies) are so CUTE!! Wouldn't it be fun to get a little PINK thank you sporting a flamingo -- that was my thought when I was creating my June thank you cards

A value pack white daisy A2 (4 1/4" x 5 1/2") card base to start. A 5" x 3 3/4" Pixie cardstock piece matted on a 5 1/8" x 3 7/8" black cardstock completes the first layer.

A 4 1/2" x 3 1/4" White Daisy piece will be the canvas for two flamingos stamped using the swiping technique - ink your image and then slide it across the ink pad and then stamp it. I wanted the look of feathers. The first step was to add the look of water with the light blue watercolor paint. Just a couple of strokes. Be sure and let your project dry before moving on, you can use your craft heater.

Now stamp your flamingos so their feet are in the water. I used Pixie ink for the bodies and Cotton Candy ink for the wings. Black ink for the legs and beak. Now on to stamp the sentiment, I chose 'Tickled Pink' from the Tickled Pink stamp set. I added the sun from this month's Stamp of the Month, A Long Way Home (S1606), which can be yours for only $5 with a qualifying order!!

And to finish, I added black squiggly lines for the look of movement in the water.

Mat this White Daisy cardstock piece to a 4 5/8" x 3 3/8" Black cardstock base.

Calypso and the Split Panel Card

One of my Rockin' heART team members, Darlene Smyly, taught us how to create a Split Panel card at a recent class. It was so much fun!!

Here is a 4 1/4" x 11" top folding White Daisy card. Fold the card from the top in half at 5 1/2", you can score first before you fold.

Place the fold line on the 2" mark on your trimmer and cut. This will leave you with the 2" x 4 1/4" panel for the top of the split panel.

Take the leftover piece, 3 1/2" x 4 1/4", and cut 2" from the 3 1/2" side.  This will leave you with a 2" x 4 1/4" for the  bottom panel.

The remaining 1 1/2" x 4 1/4" piece may be used for the sentiment piece which will attach the top and bottom panels, which is what I did. I stamped one of the flamingos from the Tickled Pink (C1651) stamp set

I cut a Black cardstock mat for it at 4 1/2" x 1 3/4".

To dress up the card, I cut panels from Calypso (X7210B) pattern paper, my rule of thumb is to cut t…

A friend shared her version of a rocker card and I fell in love. A rocker card starts with circles. The base 5 1/2" circle cut from New England Ivy cardstock. A second 5" circle is cut from pattern paper, here I am using the New England Ivy pattern paper. 

The next pieces are the circles creating a place for the sentiment and embellishments. Here I changed it up a little. The original circles would be 3 3/4" cut from White Daisy covered by a 3 1/2" circle cut from the Beary Christmas poinsettia pattern paper. 
My version…
