Flamingo Love

Here are the last two cards for my January classes.  They both use the new stamp set "Valentine Defined" from the Occasions Mini Catalog.  I love the little "kissing" flamingos.  For this first card I was looking to use other colors besides just red or pink.  My favorite color is green so when I found this card on another demonstrator's blog I just had to make it.  My inspiration came from here.  Supplies used are Old Olive, Pear Pizzazz, Pretty in Pink, Melon Mambo and Whisper White cardstock.  Melon Mambo, Old Olive and Pear Pizzazz Stampin' Pads, various punches and Pear Pizzazz ribbon.

This last card is my favorite of all the Valentine cards I've made so far.  It was so fun to make and pretty easy.  This demonstrator, Michelle, has perfected the art of using the brayer.  If you go to her blog, she makes beautiful cards of all shades and colors using the brayer.  I'm not nearly as good as she is but I don't think it's bad for my first attempt.  What do you think?  Supplies used are Melon Mambo, Rich Razzleberry, Basic Black and Whisper White card stock.  Melon Mambo, Rich Razzleberry, So Saffron, Old Olive and Basic Black Stampin' Pads.  Of course, the brayer and sponges too.  I can just imagine myself looking through the little heart-topped weeds to catch a glimpse of the two flamingos in love!!!  Michelle's blog is here.

Thanks for coming back to check out my cards.  I love showing off what I've been working on.  Don't forget -- stop back anytime and leave a comment!!
