I've been trying to not just stamp with what I like but with what others may like this summer. It's hard to go outside your box, but sorta fun to experiment a little. Flamingos would be in that category for me. I saw some at a zoo in Arizona one time but have never been to Florida and apparently that is where alot of them live! There is a stamp set featuring a flamingo in the annual catalog (Pop of Paradise #141581) and oddly enough, another pineapple stamp (see my former pineapple post!). Anyway, here's my attempt with the flamingo theme:
I chose Melon Mambo ink as it is the pinkest of the pinks and went the expected route and combined it with black and white! I'm not crazy about this card, but realize it's because I have no appreciation for flamingos at this point in my life! Here's a closer look at the stamp set itself:
I am busy preparing for a Christmas Card Buffet tomorrow (contact me if you want details in the comment section below and I will respond pronto) and so starting tomorrow, I will be posting with some Christmas cards featuring upcoming new product in the Holiday Catalog which will be available online September 1st! It's one of the best yet with so many varied themes and ideas. I can't wait to show you some of mine!
