Tickled Pink Tropical Flamingo with Spellbinders May Wax Seal and Clear Stamp Clubs

Hello, Friends!  Today I’m checking in with a cheery Tickled Pink Tropical Flamingo Card.  It is made with Spellbinders May 2024 Wax Seal and the Clear Stamp and Die of the Month Clubs.  Having lived in Florida as a newlywed, this stamp set took me right back down memory lane to one of our very first apartments.  The stucco walls of the apartment block were painted flamingo pink, and all kinds of leafy, tropical bushes grew on the property.  It was quite a change of venue for this Vermont gal who was more accustomed to snowbanks and icicles, let me tell you!

Stamping and Coloring with Distress Oxide Inks

I was tickled pink myself when I found this pack of Photoplay Summer Sunshine in the Closet of Inspiration and Delight!  It was the perfect companion for this stamp and die set.  Here’s how the card comes together:

  • First, create a 5×7 top fold card base with sunshine yellow cardstock.
  • Next, mat a 4×6 panel of tropical flowers pattern on a slightly larger panel of the same bright yellow cardstock.
  • Then mat this in the center of a 4 7/8″ x 6 7/8″ panel of pink check patterned paper.
  • Stamp the image on white cardstock. I used Jet Black Staz-On Ink.
  • Next find a water brush and color the image with Distress Oxide inks in shades of Saltwater Taffy, Worn Lipstick, Bundled Sage, Wild Honey, Peeled Paint and Mowed Lawn.
  • Now use the die to cut out the colored image and mat on a panel of Fern Cardstock.
  • Die Cut a circle from the tropical leaves pattern and tuck behind the image.
  • Add embellishments and you’re done!
A Peek Inside

Use the same papers inside your card, but add some summery images to make it even more fun.

Fussy cut these images from a journal card, then adhere as a pop up feature.

Tuck a tea wallet and honey stick in the pocket to make the card even more fun.

What flavor tea?  Well, Coconut Mango seemed like a good choice for tis tropical card.

    Love the watercoloured imagery, the tropical scene. It reminds me of a long time ago when we were in Africa, the flamingoes were in the tens of thousands, a wall of colour. When they fly at sunset it is like looking at knots in string! Super card Kathy, lovely mix of mediums too.
