Flamingo Lingo Showcase …

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Today I’d like to showcase a retiring stamp set “Flamingo Lingo”. This is a stamp set close to my heart, it is the Ronald McDonald House Chariest stamp set.

You’ll be tickled pink with the Flamingo Lingo Clear stamp set and the variety of cards you can make with this darling flamingo. And you’ll love that with each set purchased, Stampin’ Up! will donate $3 to RMHC. Together we can make a difference in the lives of children and their families.

Speaking of pink …

Here is the first of 3 cards that I will showcase today using the Flamingo Lingo stamp set.  This card was stamped by my friend and downline member Cindy. It was a swap card from one of our Star’s Team meeting. Who does not love pink & black, and she created a focal point with the Oval Collection Framelits.

Next is a card I created …

Oh yes … tickled pink again! I framed out our flamingo using the Square Collection Framelit die. The Coastal Cabana really pops with the black and Strawberry Slush (both retiring colors). I do believe that the scallop edge punch is also on the retired list.

Last but not least, is a card that we made at one of my Stamp Camps …

This card was done in Calypso Coral and Crisp Cantaloupe … with just a touch of Pistachio Pudding. The 2013-15 In-colors will also retire (and the refills go FAST!!) which include the Cantaloupe and Pistachio!

As you can see … you really can make a variety of card using the Flamingo Lingo stamp set. There is still time to purchase this fabulous set … Click Here to shop now.

I hope you enjoyed … I have a list of ingredients for your convenience below. I will not repeat items (like the Petite Petals punch) for each card, ingredients will only be listed once.

Thanks so much for stopping by ~

TODAY’S STAMPIN’ SUPPLY LIST …

Guest Stamper … Cindy S.

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Happy September! Today I have a fun card to share with you, created by one of my Star’s group members … Cindy S.  I believe this may be the last of our swap cards, but not to worry … we meet monthly!

Cindy used our exclusive RMHC stamp set, Flamingo Lingo.  I was not much of a Flamingo person before, but I am totally falling in love with this stamp set.  Besides … for each stamp set we sell – $3.00 is donated to the Ronald McDonald House Charities.

Cindy used the Melon Mambo and Basic Black markers to bring her Flamingo to life, and created a focal point by using the Ovals Collection Framelit dies. The background is the Decorative Dots embossing folder.

The pretty flowers that draw your eye from the focal point to the greeting can be found in the Flamingo Lingo stamp set, and coordinate with the Petite Petals punch.

Cindy used the “And Many More” stamp set for her greeting and used the fun combination of the Word Window and Modern Label punch… they look great together!

I think Cindy did a great job and I thank her for sharing.

Thank you for dropping by today.

Hope you are having a safe and Happy Holiday weekend,

Tickled Pink …

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Eileen and I have been busy creating boards for the annual Hostess Appreciation Party.  By “boards” I mean that we showcase several stamp sets at the event, and then create about 5 different cards for each board … then we raffle them off!

Everyone loves seeing the different cards and how versatile the stamp sets are. Create * Inspire * Share!

OK … why am I telling you this?  Because I just had to share one of the cards that will be posted on the “Flamingo Lingo” board.  Each year I highlight the Ronald McDonald House Exclusive stamp set,  because $3 from each stamp set sold goes to the Ronald McDonald Charity Houses.  Great Cause … great stamp set!

Now … Isn’t this just too cute!

My flamingo is stamped in Strawberry Slush and highlighted with a Coastal Cabana scallop and twine bow.   The cute flower in this stamp set, coordinates with the Petite Petals Punch.

Stampin’ Tip of the Day: Pretty Pearls … in any color!  Our new Blendabilities markers work great for coloring our pearls, rhinestones, and even our buttons!  Watch for upcoming “Blendabilities” classes.

I wanted to bring in that touch of “Florida” so I added the big bright shining sun from the “Kinda Eclectic” stamp set.  Warms it up nicely … don’t you think!?

Picture this ….I wanted to use my “On Film” Framelit die, and just love the way it frames our flamingo.
