Christy’s Pretty Pink Flamingo Inspiration!

Hey friends, it’s Christy here with another card for our For the Birds Challenge! This time I was totally feeling these sweet feathered friends from Flamingo Together. I combined them with some flora and fauna from Critters in the Jungle and Manatee-rific. All of the images were colored with Copic markers and trimmed out with the matching dies.

For my focal panel, I die cut some Ballet Slippers cardstock with the Stitched Journaling Card die. I stamped my sentiment in a combo of Wild Rose and Black Licorice ink and then embossed two of the Just Stitching Hearts. Then I adhered my images.

For the card base, I used more Ballet Slippers cardstock to make a standard A2 sized card, then I trimmed out some Spring Fling pattered papers with the Outside In Stitched Rectangle Stackables so you get that detail on the edge, and also get a little peek of that cardstock showing through. I popped up my focal panel with foam tape and added a little Star Dust Stickles to the flower centers to finish off the card.

I also did some stamping on the inside, which you can check out in the video tutorial on my YouTube channel, Christy Gets Crafty. For now, why not grab those bird stamps and get crafty yourself! There’s still plenty of time to enter our challenge!

The For the Birds challenge will be open until Sunday February 2 at 11:59PM ET. We can’t wait to see what you create!

Grace recreated the Mood Board filling her card with lots of summery images from On the Beach, Life is Good and Happy Summer! She included the letters using Finley’s ABCs as fun shakers!

Christy‘s beautiful clean and simple card captures the summer vibe with images from On the Beach and Flamingo Together! Everything is colored in the bright bold colors of the inspiration!

Joyce‘s card combines all the wonderful feels of a lazy day at the beach! With On the Beach, Smooth Sailing and scene builders like Stitched Wavy Borders and Stitched Hillside Borders her Father’s Day card depicts a wonderful summer scene!

Karin found the inspiration for her adorable card from the colorful letters in the Mood Board! She colored the Cole’s ABCs die cuts to match the color inspiration and created a fun scene with critters from Butterfly Kisses and Eggstra Amazing Easter!

Franci created a fun clean and simple card using Smooth Sailing! I love how she colored the sails in the bright shades from the color inspiration!

How adorable are those Smooth Sailing critters in the yellow submarine?! Samantha caught the summery feel to take underwater with colorful fish from Keep on Swimming and You Are Sublime!

Wow! Jessica‘s card captures the beauty of a summer sky with Sunray Backdrop and some amazing ink blending! Prisma glitter adds the gorgeous sparkle to the rays!

Jenn‘s amazing card is a pretty good reflection of the Mood Board with all the fabulous color and fun images! She combined So Smooth, On the Beach, Happy Summer, Critters in the Jungle and the sun from Spring Showers to create this fun collage! She colored the letters from Quinn’s ABCs to follow the color inspiration!
