CCBH Flirty Flamingo - Week 17

Hello everybody! Welcome to tonight’s Colour Creations blog hop and this week it is Flirty Flamingo. It is a bright pinky-orangey type of colour.

I have created two very different cards this week and decided to play around with the Artistically Inked stamp and die bundle.

The first card is just a Basic Black card base and mat. The intricate die is cut using the Artistic die and Basic White card stock and then coloured with inks and blending brushes. I have used ink colours: Flirty Flamingo, Fresh Freesia, Just Jade and Misty Moonlight.

I adhered the floral die cut with Multipurpose Liquid glue to the mat. The sentiment from the new Delicate Dahlias stamp set is stamped with VersaMark onto Flirty Flamingo card stock and heat embossed with White embossing powder. It is then cut using a Stitched Rectangle die.

This stamp set is a FREE Sale-a-bration item with a minimum spend of $A180 but the promotion will end shortly on 30 September. I’m looking forward to putting in another order before it does end. Oh and of course I have added some sequins from the Ephemera pack.

This next card uses the watercolour stamp from the Artistically Inked set. I have been wanting to play with this set for awhile.

The card base is Basic White and layered with a Misty Moonlight mat that was dry embossed with the Painted Texture 3D embossing folder. 

The stamped panel was cut with a Stitched Rectangle die and stamped with Flirty Flamingo and Misty Moonlight inks. I wasn’t sure how they would go together but I think it looks okay!

This panel was adhered to the base and embossed mat. I have used the Tailored Tag punch on the Sweet Symmetry DSP for the tag shapes. The sentiment is again from the Delicate Dahlias set and embossed as previously.

The words have been fussy cut and adhered with dimensionals onto the punched shapes. I thought as the panel was busy I didn’t think it needed further embellishments but looking at it again you could add twine or some gems or sequins. I think it’s a crafters dilemma…”to embellish or not to embellish” LOL.

Hope you enjoy the remaining blog hop where you can find more inspiration from the very talented Di Furniss

Have a good remaining week everyone. My weekend plans (starting tomorrow) is to continue our garden bed project and watch the AFL Grand Final on Saturday - Go Dees!!!


  1. Both of your cards have a lovely drama about them, Rosa! I really like that you used a Flirty Flamingo sentiment panel on your first card, to "bookend" the Flirty Flamingo flower in that beautiful die cut. What a great colour combination you chose for your second card; I love it! I think there is enough detail in the splotchy stamp, and the patterned paper, for the card to not need further embellishment. Lovely projects.

  2. Wow, Rosa, I'm loving that combination of Flirty Flamingo and Misty Moonlight - it is very retro and works so well!

  3. Both very striking cards Rosa, Flirty Flamingo looks so striking against the black. I also love how you have mixed it with Misty Moonlight! Hope your Dees win on Saturday!

  4. I love how much that gorgeous coloured die cut pops on the black card, Rosa. The second card is very dramatic with the bold colours and patterned papers. Great use of the punches to pop up the sentiment.

  5. Two great cards Rosa. They are both dramatic in their own ways. The coloured Artistically Inked die cut shows brilliantly on the black background. I love Flirty Flamingo with Misty Moonlight - it a great colour combo. Xxx

  6. I like both of your cards, but WOW at how well the Misty Moonlight and Flirty Flirty Flamingo works together. Just love what you have done on this card!

  7. Amazing cards Rosa, love both, and the 2nd needs particular mention. It's stamped background, is so eye-catching. The punched tags in a floral DSP add such interest too.

  8. The pop of colours over the black background is fabulous, but I really, really love the second card! The colours and patterns are stunning!

  9. The colouring of your floral die cut is so very soft and pretty Rosa, a lovely combination of colours. Your second card is very creative, and again the colours you have chosen go well together.

  10. Rosa I really love the Flirty Flamingo paired with the Misty Moonlight and I love the background that you created on that card too

  11. The background you created with the artisically inked stamp is very eye catching!

  12. Two terrific cards Rosa. I particularly like the way you used the punch to cut out sections of the DSP for card no. 2. They look fabulous against your stamped background.
