My crafting buddy extraordinaire, Denise, came over this week for a long overdue craft night. She was eager to try out the flamingo stamp and die set from Laina Lamb Design / My Favorite Things and made this adorable card. I declared that I wanted one for my birthday!
I used the You’re the Sweetest stamps and dies, also from MFT to make a “thank you” card. I had also just gotten the MFT Blueprints #13, my first Blueprints set, which I used for the background layering.
I made this card so that I could try out a die-cutting technique I saw on Pinterest. Such a simple, but effective idea, I don’t know why I didn’t think of it before. I didn’t quite get my template lined up right on the cone, but practice makes perfect and all that. This is going to come in so handy.
Still getting the hang of that pigment ink, hah! Or maybe that smudge represents the melted chocolate that so often accompanies ice cream consumption. #art
