Pink Flamingos cu 09623
This was made for my DTGD challenge & we’d love for you to join in so for all the details go to the Dare to Get Dirty Forum ..but you’ll need to be a Fan Club member. It’s sooooo easy!

While I can’t give you the challenge details here I can share how I made this card. These flamingos are so pretty & they begged to come home & live w/ me. I love birds so how could I refuse? I put them into my Misti, stamped them Memento, colored w/ Copics , added a few white highlights w/ a Prismacolor pencil, then over stamped w/ Versafine. After die cutting w/ the matching dies (well…they were a set!), I stamped, colored & fussy cut a bunch of hibiscus to add at their feet. Pink Flamingos 09625
For the window scene, I die cut the octagon in white layer, added a slightly smaller black octagon frame then sponged the scene onto the white octagon I cut out. I used Prismacolor pencils to add the sunlight on the water & the surf at the water’s edge. The stamped, die cut palm tree (part of the flamingo set) was added & the greeting stamped between the flamingos. The little stitched black strip on the card front had to be added because I did what I do when I get in a hurry, & I scored the card front in the wrong place. So..I had to have something to cover the weird score line.  😉 

I’m also adding this card to the Simon Says Wed. Challenge – Anything Goes!

Here are the Copics I used.

Welcome to Day 6 of Tracey McNeely‘s 25 Days of Christmas Tags! I’m here representing Serendipity Stamps w/ a brand new Snowman w/ Umbrella image. Isn’t he cute?

Snowman Tag 07761
After placing him in my Misti, stamping him w/ Memento & coloring w/ Copics, I over stamped w/ Versafine to bring out the details. I cut him w/ a large tag die, doing a little out of the box to keep from cutting his umbrella then used a craft knife to cut around his mitten & the umbrella shaft to place the postage stamp frame around & under him. A die cut Merry was added above the stamped Christmas & a fussy cut snowflake added beside him. Some colored gems were glued over his buttons and a little stickles was added to the snow & snowflake. Can’t have too much sparkle for Christmas!

Here are the Copics I used to color everything.

I wanted to try something a little different for my card…a divided panel using the greeting as the bridge. I’ve seen it done using die cut letters, so I gave it a try using a stamped greeting. It worked pretty just took a little fancy fussy cutting. The large panels were die cut then I determined how much to remove behind where the greeting would fit. After removing this piece, I attached the top & bottom sections to the greeting. The candy canes were also fussy cut & added to the die cut ovals.

The little ornament topper was die cut & I used Copics to color a circle for the ornament then punched it w/ a circle punch. 

These are the Copics I used.
