Flamingo Lingo with a Hanging Tail

The Flamingo Lingo stamp set from Stampin' Up! is so fun and I love that a donation is made to Ronald McDonald House with every purchase!

For these flamingo cards I sponged the color onto the flamingo image to get a bit of texture, using Blushing Bride and Melon Mambo Classic Inks and a Sponge Dauber. Then I trimmed out the tail and the back of one foot before die cutting it with the Oval Framelit. By trimming in a little bit on the pieces that I want to hang over the edge of die cut, I can slide that part of the image ON TOP of the framelit. Then it is not cut along with the rest of the die cut shape.

I also used the Sponge Daubers and two inks on the flowers, which give them just a little bit of interest over a solid colored flower. And have I mentioned how absolutely LOVELY the new cotton ribbon is?! I'm in love!
