Hi everyone! Carisa here from Inky Fairy Designs with a super fun and simple slimline card featuring Maker Forte Minging Flamingos Stamp and Stencil set as well as a few stamps from Good Vibes designed by Jess Francisco. This card is super simple to create with an end result that looks flawless.
Once the background is completed, it’s time to stamp the gorgeous flamingo silhouette. Color Hive Remarkable Ink Pad in Eclipse Black is perfect for this giving a crisp black image every time. Using a stamp positioning tool also helps along with the Maker Forte Perfect Impression Ink Smoosher tool. With a stamp of this size, multiple impressions may still be necessary but with these tools, you’ll get the perfect silhouette impression every time. Once that was completed, using the mask that comes with the stamp and stencil set, place the sun stamp and ink up to stamp with Wild Honey Distress Oxide.
To start, cut a piece of Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper into a slimline size of 8.5 by 3.5″. To create the look of a sunset (or sunrise) 3 Distress Ink Oxide colors were chosen in the colors Scattered Straw, Worn Lipstick and Festive Berries. Using ink blending tools, layer the inks together to create a smooth gradient – this is achieved using several layers of ink, overlapping each one.
Next, just trim out the ink blended panel down so there is no border and mount on a piece of pink Cardstock as well as black Cardstock to create a beautiful coordinating border. Then, stamp the sentiment, die cut with a banner die and pop up with dimensional adhesive to place on the card front. This creates this fun, summer inspired card that will brighten anyone’s day!
