Pop of Paradise & Touches of Texture


As you know, I just love flamingoes and am a huge fan of the gorgeous Pop of Paradise stamp set.  I decided to team it with Touches of Texture to create this beautiful array of multicoloured flamingo cards!   I knew the lacey stamp from Touches of Texture would make for a pretty backdrop for my flamingoes.   Using my stamp-a-ma-jig, I stamped the Lacey image repeatedly in bermuda bay, melon mambo, perfect plum and pumpkin pie,  lining it up until the background pattern emerged.

My sentiment came from the wonderful Thoughtful Branches stamp set.  This gorgeous stamp set is available as part of a bundle through August only and is simply a stunning, elegant and timeless stamp set.  I especially love the font of the words in the set which is how I came to choose the ‘for you’.  I silver embossed my sentiment to make it stand out and then tied a piece of silver natural trim ribbon around my card front.

On a separate piece of whisper white cardstock, I stamped my flamingoes in the same colours before fussy cutting them out.  Next , I placed a small silver metallic doily to the right hand side of my ribbon, and adhered my flamingo with dimensionals on top of that.

Finally I added a metallic enamel heart next to my sentiment, and attached my card front to a silver foil mat as pictured above, before attaching my card layers to a whisper white card base.  I really love the elegant combination of all of these stamp sets, hope you do too 💕💕💕
