Video: 80s Flamingo Card with the July 2022 My Monthly Hero Kit
Hello friends!! It’s Channin here and today I’m creating a colorful 80s inspired card featuring the brand new July 2022 My Monthly Hero Kit. Watch the video below to see how I blend and stamp a vibrant landscape and then finish with a cool ombre sentiment.
(If you are having trouble viewing this video, please watch HERE on YouTube.)
To create this card I first die cut a panel of Deluxe Smooth White cardstock with a circle die from the Nesting Circle Infinity Die Set. Next I taped off the lower third of the circle and then ink blended the upper portion in Creamsicle, Taffy, Thistle and Purple Galaxy Reactive Inks to create the sky. When I was finished ink blending the sky I removed the tape and then masked off the sky. With the sky protected, I ink blended the water with Pool Party and Blue Raspberry Reactive Inks. When I finished blending the water I removed the tape and then splattered water over the sky to make water spots to resemble stars.
With my scene complete, I created the sentiment. First I arranged “you are” and “flamazing” together in my MISTI to create a single sentiment. I then partially inked up a third of the sentiment in Thistle and stamped it onto white cardstock. I then partially inked up the middle of the sentiment in Taffy and stamped it again. Lastly I inked up the last bit of the sentiment in Creamsicle and stamped again. Next, I inked up the entire sentiment in Embossing & Watermark Ink and stamped over the ombre sentiment. I then poured Clear Embossing Powder over the sentiment and heat set.
With the sentiment stamps still in my MISTI, I placed the stamped sentiment back into my MISTI but this time I pushed the paper up a tiny bit (like 1/16”) to create a dropped shadow. I then stamped the sentiment again in Embossing & Watermark Ink and heat set in Clear Embossing Powder. Next, I ink blended over the sentiment with INTENS-ified Black Ink and then fussy cut the sentiment out. I finished the card by adhering the scene and sentiment to the front of an A2 Dove White Top Folded Card with foam adhesive.
I hope you enjoyed today’s card and video! Thank you so much for stopping by!
