Okay, Okay! So you probably got here this morning and was like "Where is the words?? She didn't type anything" but my excuse is just that and legitimate! While attempting to type my post last night in my recliner with my lap top on my lap, I was falling asleep... Taryn even walked by and poked me!
Sad, but true... I have been all go lately. Between my business, company at the house (my mom will be here on the 21st), and trying to establish a team environment with the kids to get more chores done I am One Tired Mother Tucker or maybe I am just Tuckered out!
The One Stamp At A Time Blog Hop is back with the theme "Creature Comforts", now when Jenny Hall and I created the hop schedule we were trying to leave things up to interpretation... So the idea was animal themed cards or cards featuring an animal... So I must confess it was not a well thought out theme... Let me show you what I have made for you today!
Crafters Confession log #101... I lost my Flamingo Card!!! I can't find it! I looked everywhere and did everything short of throwing everything away on my counters! So, I was unable to get a picture with my two items together...
So I have had the Fabulous Flamingo set since I display stamped in San Diego! I must confess it was not a favorite... but it may have worked its way into my heart with this card. I am a frequent shopper of a store called Cheeky's. It is a boutique with sassy tea shirts, cute jewelry and they do lives in their VIP group which always leave me laughing. Anyhow, they have a T-Shirt with the sentiment I created above with the Make A Difference set.
ENOUGH TALKING!!! Lets get to the details!
The card started with a card base of Flirty Flamingo, with a bright matte of Coastal Cabana. My Thick Whisper White stamped layer is matted onto Granny Apple Green. I made the Flamingo using Powder Pink and Flirty Flamingo ink and my amazing Stamparatus! My Coastal Cabana stamped Water is accented by some Granny Apple Green grass. The leaves at the top are also Granny Apple Green with a pop of Lemon Lime Twist. As stated above I created the sentiment using the Make A Difference stamp set using Coastal Cabana and Flirty Flamingo ink. It is tied on the left with the Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle. A few of the new Glitter Enamel Dots and this card was done!
For my project I needed to tied the two together even though I couldn't find the one! I chose to use the Tropical Escape DSP (which is on the Buy 3, Get 1 FREE Sale). I made this fun little Chapstick favor with Granny Apple Green and the DSP. I stamped a quick tag to coordinate with Fabulous Flamingo Card and punched it with the Starburst Punch. It is matted onto a 2 1/4" Circle of Coastal Cabana. My Cute Ribbon is just the Whisper White Classic Weave, I have used my Light Granny Apple Green Stampin' Blend to color it before tying my Whisper White Bakers Twine bow around it!
Thank you so much for stopping by today! I can't wait for you to see what the rest of my friends have come up with for this fun theme! You can follow along the hop by clicking along the list below!
