Warm Holiday Wishes


Hello Everyone,

We here in Southern California have been having a heat wave during this Thanksgiving week and that led me to pulling out this super fun and adorable stamp set by Avery Elle, Flamingo Bells.  I started by stamping my images onto some water color paper and then using my Zig Clean Real Brush Pens to color them in, while they were drying I pulled out a piece of Neenah Solar White 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 and did some ink blending with my TH Distress Oxides in Worn Lipstick, Picked Raspberry,  Seedless Preserves and Faded Jeans from about 1/4 of the way up from the bottom.  I then flicked on some water and set it aside to dry. When dry I then took Simon Says Stamp Ink in Barely Beige and blended the bottom portion of the card as if it was sand.  When it was completely dry I then took the little snowflake stamps in the Avery Elle set and using versa mark ink and white embossing powder stamped them all around the top portion of the card. I then used the coordinating dies and cut out the main palm tree scene and the cute little flamingo.  I used foam tape on the top portion of the die cut from about the Christmas lights up and then below used liquid glue and attached to the inked background. I then used a dab of liquid glue on the flamingo and stuck him down.  I stamped the Warm Holiday Wishes on the bottom portion of the card with my MISTI and then added the finished panel to a white A2 sized side folding card base.  I sprinkled a few crystal clear confetti sequins on the card and it is all finished. 
I hope you enjoyed, see you all soon!
