Welcome to the Lawn Fawn May Inspiration Week!
All of the Summer 2016 products will be available for purchase on May 19th!
Today the Lawn Fawn Design Team is showcasing the new Flamingo Together Stamps and coordinating dies as well as all the amazing new Cross Stitched Stackables dies! I paired the Flamingo Together Stamp Set with lots of Lawn Fawn dies (both old and new!) to create this beachy scene card.
I stamped the flamingos and heart from the Flamingo Together Stamp Set on smooth white cardstock using Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink and colored in the images with Copic Markers. I stamped the tops of the palm trees with Lawn Fawn Jalapeno Ink and the tree trunks with Lawn Fawn Walnut Ink. I die cut all the images with the coordinating Flamingo Together Dies.
I die cut two rectangles from the Small Cross Stitched Rectangles die collection. From one of the rectangles I used a Simple Stitched Hillside Boder to die cut the "sand" and used an Ocean Wave Borders die cut the "waves". I used a Cross Stitched Circle die for the sun. I applied Salty Ocean Distress Ink to the waves, Gathered Twigs Distress Ink to the sand, and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink to the sun. I used a combination of Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink and Candied Apple Distress Ink on the background rectangle for the sky. I spritzed all the Distress Inked pieces with water from a Distress Sprayer and immediately blotted the pieces dry with a paper towel.
I assembled the background scene as shown, finishing with the flamingos, palm trees, and heart.
I stamped a greeting from the Flamingo Together Stamp Set below the birds using black ink. I stamped the smaller heart next to the greeting and then a couple more times near the top of the card. I colored in the hearts with a Copic Marker.
I applied Glossy Accents to the hearts and the beaks of the flamingos and let it dry.
I die cut a large A2 size rectangle from black cardstock using a Large Cross Stitched Rectangles Die and adhered the flamingo scene on top to finish the design.
