Flamingo love

Hello everyone! It's Ria here today.

I'm sharing a card project today using Sarah Hurley's A Few of my Favourite Things July - Tropical Favourites kit.

I fell in-love with the pink Flamingo the first time I saw that in the set, what a better way than to do highlight her in today's project.

So here are a quick look of the supplies I used

One thing I love above Sarah's kit is the that it includes a Snip 'n' Stick sheet with great print images ready to use in just any project. I love combining different collection to make as embellishment. See how I can just select the element I wanted to use?

I used one of the journaling card with life is beautiful already printed on it. I just added a white embossed sentiment from the July's Add-on Exclusive stamp. Love the chalk board look of that journal card.
I then took a pink paper and emboss the piece with hearts from the Be Mine collection. 

Adding a clear embossing powder add some texture to a plain paper piece. 

Love how the clear embossed piece add life to a plain paper.

I also cut the paper strips I'll be using for my card background. I also used a paper from the Neopolitan set. Love that Love print background :) Just perfect for my pink flamingo love.

I assembled my card pieces: my paper strips, embossed journal card, and my cut embellishments.

I just arranged the rest of the cut pieces in the main card, popping them with some dimensional. Fussy cutting may be a challenge to some but I find it therapeutic? Cutting those small sections of the flamingo just makes me concentrate on what I do, keeping my mind off to stress. Love fussy cutting, or is it just me?

So here's a detail of the arranged pieces. Makes me smile :)

and the finish card..

That's it for now. I'll catch up with you again soon!



  1. Love the cute sentiment and your wonderful card!
