Hello, it’s Kari here with Four Flamingo Card ideas for you to try! I just fell in LOVE with the new Stamp & Stencil set released, and so in true form, I couldn’t stop making flamingo cards! Lol. I hope you will give some of these a try!

I’ll start by sharing the video, if you want to go directly to that first. It’s a shorter video, which is surprising because I’m sharing four cards! Watch the video below or in HD on YouTube:

Card 1: White Pigment Ink Clouds

This is the ONLY card that is blue. But I think it’s very effective and stunning in real life!

  1. For this first card, stamp the flamingoes with Black Remarkable Ink.
  2. Cover the stamped flamingoes with the included stencil.
  3. Ink on various shades of blue ink.
  4. Add white pigment ink clouds
  5. Mat with Blue Raspberry Cardstock

Card 2: Stamp in Hot Pink Ink

These flamingoes also look great in HOT PINK! For this card I used the beautiful Neon Rah Rah Skirt Ink to stamp the flamingoes.

  1. Stamp the flamingoes in Rah Rah Skirt ink
  2. Cover with stencil and ink on various Oxide inks to create a sunset look. I used Scattered Straw, Dried Marigold, Milled Lavender, and Wilted Violet.
  3. Add gems to finish it off, mat with white cardstock card base.

Card 3: Try Glitter Embossing Powder

For this card, Glitter embossing powder takes it up a notch!

  1. Stamp the flamingoes with a coral ink.
  2. Clean off the stamp, then re-stamp over the top of the flamingoes with a clear, sticky embossing ink.
  3. Sprinkle on some glitter embossing powder and heat set it with a heat tool.
  4. Ink on some clouds in the background
  5. Mat with white cardstock & Welsh Dragon cardstock (which looks GREAT with coral!)

Card 4: Stencil on Stencil background

This is a favorite of mine: not only this technique, but the entire way the card turned out!

  1. Stamp the flamingoes in black Remarkable Ink, add clear embossing powder if desired.
  2. Add the stencil over the flamingoes and ink the background with a pink ink (I used Picked Raspberry here)
  3. Add a polka dot stencil over the flamingo stencil and ink a second time with the pink ink.
  4. Mat with Scrunchie Cardstock.
