This card using Pop of Paradise, was for an organized swap. I started out with the new flamingo Stamp set, Fabulous Flamingo, but decided I did not want to be that artsy. I wanted a simple card that was easy to duplicate because I had to make a lot. Plus, I wanted a modern clean look. The flamingo from Pop of Paradise was perfect for creating a modern, simple card. To bring in some trendy elements, I used the Balloon Celebration. I had seen a card on Pinterest where someone used pieces from this set to create lemons and cantaloupes. I didn’t get that specific with the shapes from this set, but I thought the shapes definitely looked tropical.
For colors, I used the In Colors of Flirty Flamingo and Lemon Lime Twist. I loved how they work together. I need a vibrant pink for the flamingo and the Flirty Flamingo was certainly the color. The background stamp is from Work of Art. It was a simple way of getting a watercolor look without the time it takes to watercolor! I could simply stamp and move on to the next card. Some 3/8″ Flirty Flamingo Striped Grosgrain Ribbon and Basic Rhinestones were the finishing touches.
Papers: Flirty Flamingo, Lemon Lime Twist, Whisper White
