Hello! Oh, this is such a BIG week here at StampinByHannah! On Wednesday I have a heap of stuff to post as the 2016 Annual Catalogue goes live! I am so excited to shop with you from this awesome new book. I do have a couple of days of sneaky peaks before we get there though….
Starting with today’s Make It Monday!
This card is so fun! I will admit that this Flamingo stumped me when I first came across it in the catalogue. I have had the catalogue in my hands since mid-April, when I attended Stampin’ Up! On Stage, and the girls I was sat with that day will tell you I have absolutely no idea what happened on the stage as I couldn’t pull my eyes away from the catalogue, pen in hand, making notes of things for all of you! But this flamingo, which comes in a set that also includes a Pineapple, had me baffled! And then it appeared in the very short list available for demonstrators available to pre-order, and I didn’t buy it, but then my Facebook and Pinterest feeds filled up with Flamingos, and somehow this dude ended up on my stamp shelf! So, I have it, I MUST use it!
So, this is one of my first cards featuring the Flamingo. But I had this card in my head, particularly the technique I have used on the Flamingo itself.
The Flamingo was coloured using the In-Colour Stampin’ Write markers in Flirty Flamingo and Peekaboo Peach. I did a test stamp onto Whisper White, and this effect was just gorgeous, I will probably share that at some point – but not today. The Designer Series Paper on the side of the watercolour paper comes from two different packs (sorry!) the Black stripes are from the Neutrals Designer Series Paper Stack, and the other piece with the beautiful gold confetti is from the new Pop of Pink Speciality Designer Series Paper, so super pretty.
I hope you enjoyed my waffle-y video today, I have to apologise that I won’t be posting a Fancy Fold Friday this week, but I do have several other videos coming this week instead!
