Hello Flamingo

By | June 20, 2016

I love the new Pop of Paradise stamp set!  The flamingo is so cute, and I also adore the tropical leaves that come with this stamp set.  It just screams summer fun to me.

I wanted to make a fun door prize for my Stamp Club this week, so I chose bright, cheery colors including one of the new In-Colors … Flirty Flamingo.  Well it is pretty apropos, don’t you think?  I stamped the flamingo twice, once with Flirty Flamingo ink and once with Basic Black ink, so I could layer the pink body over the black legs and beak.

I used a few retired products here, but there are comparable alternatives available in the new catalog.  For example, I used a retire dotted glassine gift bag, but you could use the new ones listed below instead.  If you like the dots, just stamp some.  Also, the clothespin I used is now retired.  Alternatively, you could use one of the cute new gold binder clips.

To add a little pizzazz to my gift bag, I added a few Melon Mambo sequins from the Brights Sequins Assortment.

Supplies used on my gift:

I love using glassine gift bags to create pretty gifts.  Slip some cardstock inside to hide the gift, or use them as is for a glimpse of the gift inside.
