Reverse Confetti and CardMaker Hop!

FabulousFlamingos1-blk

Welcome to the Reverse Confetti and CardMaker hop!

What fun! The CardMaker team was given a Reverse Confetti store credit and allowed to pick anything we wanted! It was difficult but as soon as I saw the Fabulous Flamingos with coordinating Fabulous Flamingo Confetti Cuts, I knew what I was ordering! I have a granddaughter that has been crazy for flamingos since she was a toddler! Perfect for her upcoming birthday!

You should have gotten here from Leigh’s blog, but not to worry if you just happened here! The entire hop list can be found on the CardMaker blog and Reverse Confetti blog. Another reason to visit the Reverse Confetti blog, they are giving away a $25 store gift certificate!!

Here is my first card…

FabulousFlamingos1

I stamped the body (all stamped on my MISTI) with Clearsnap Cheeky, then did a combo for the beaks of Splash, Plumeria and Cheeky and a little Ranger Jet Black for the eyes and beak edge. The sentiment is stamped (with the help of my MISTI) in Cheeky and Plumeria.

The stamp and coordinating dies make it easy to whip up a card in no time!

For this one, I started by stamping the 4 background birds with Clearsnap Tangerine, then colored over the legs and around the bodies with a Copic to resemble water. I added the clouds with a homemade cloud template and Ranger Tumbled Glass and Broken China.
Then stamped and die cut the main bird, stamping the legs several times to make them darker.

The sentiment is stamped with Clearsnap Plumeria and Chambray.

Wonderful cards.
Love the popped flamingo on the second card.
All of the colors on the background of the

well.
