My card today was inspired by three challenges this week, Hand Stamped Sentiments, Paper Craft Crew, and Stamp, Ink, Paper.
My card starts off with Tempting Turquoise cardstock. I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and the Fabulous Flamingo stamp set to create my scene. I stamped the water image in Soft Sky ink and Tempting Turquoise ink on the bottom and stamped the palm leaf image in Bermuda Bay and Lemon Lime Twist ink at the top.
Next I took a 3″x3″ square of Tempting Turquoise cardstock and embossed it using the Seaside embossing folder.
I stamped the solid flamingo image in Memento Black ink on Whisper White cardstock and fussy cut it out using Paper Snips. Then I stamped the sentiment in Tempting Turquoise ink on Soft Sky cardstock.
Yesterday I finally (after having set the goal months ago to do so) did my first Facebook Live Video making this card.
You can check it out here on my Facebook page. Of course something was going to go wrong because it was my first one and I was, well, live, so just be aware that the camera is upside down for the first 5 minutes. (Face in hand.) Oh well.
In my video I switched around the sentiment to “Thanks.” Here are the two cards below.
