Stampin' Up! Friendly Flamingo for Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

 


Welcome to the Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop. This week we have a color challenge. If this is your first time here, welcome! If not, welcome back!!

I'm featuring sentiment stamps from the Friendly Flamingo Stamp Set and an image from the Dragonfly Garden Stamp Set to create my card today. I'm entering my card in the Sunday Stamps Weekly Challenge SSC252 because I used their sketch for my design...


and at Time Out Challenge #183 - Different as I don't normally like my card mats offset or with big and small mat borders.



I used the Dainty Diamonds 3D Embossing Folder, Dandy Garden DSP, Stitched Rectangles Dies, Friendly Flamingo Stamp Set, Dragonfly Garden Stamp Set and Garden Wishes Stamp Set, and a 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dot to create my card.

There appear to be all five colors used! The DSP is wonderful for that. I did use Bumblebee ink and Blackberry Bliss ink on my card and matching cardstock. Why does a camera pick up things not seen with the naked eye? My matting is really off!

For the inside...


Measurements can be found after the links to my team mates' projects.

  11. Its so funny because I'm the same as you, its not until I look at my cards through my camera that I realise they are lopsided etc...so frustrating!! Just love the paper you used, the butterflies are so beautiful with their 'sketchiness' and the subtle diamond dot embossing is so pretty in the background. And nice to see a different layout for the front of a card, talk about perfect for the challenge, so very happy you joined us at TIME OUT!
