Stampin’ Up Fabulous Flamingo Birthday Card

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  Did everyone have a nice Memorial Day?  It was a beautiful day here.  We had  a picnic for my daughter’s 21st birthday with friends and family and had a wonderful time.  I made a point of taking a few minutes to have a moment of silence to thank those who gave their lives for us which is the reason we have Memorial Day.

For today’s card I’m using another soon to retire stamp set and I paired it up with a sneak peek of some of the new 2019-2021 In-Colors.  I used the Stampin’ Up Fabulous Flamingo Stamp Set.  I think this is really one of my favorite sets. It took me a while to figure out how to get things lined up. Thankfully I had a visit last September from my team leader and she showed me the trick. I really wish this set was carrying over, but unfortunately it’s not.   Here’s my card.

I started with a Whisper White card front and stamped the 1st step of the flamingo from the Fabulous Flamingo Stamp Set in Rococo Rose Ink (new 2019-2021 In-Color).  I stamped the 2nd step of the flamingo from the Fabulous Flamingo stamp set in Rococo Rose Ink stamping it off once.  I stamped the 3rd step of the flamingo from the Fabulous Flamingo stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I stamped the water from the Fabulous Flamingo stamp set in Seaside Spray Ink(new 2019-2021 In-Color).  I stamped the grass from the Fabulous Flamingo stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink (new 2019-2021 In-Color).  Lastly I stamped the palms from the Fabulous Flamingo stamp set around the top and sides of the panel in Tranquil Tide Ink (retiring In-Color) and in Mint Macaron Ink, stamping some off once and some off twice.

Using the 2nd largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies I cut a portion of the flamingo out.  I adhered the card front to a Rococo Rose card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.   I adhered the cut out stitched circle to the card base, centering it with the card front, using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Fabulous Flamingo stamp set in Rococo Rose Ink to the right of the flamingo on the card front.

On the inside I stamped the 3rd step of the flamingo from the Fabulous Flamingo stamp set in Rococo Rose Ink, stamping off once, in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the palms from the Fabulous Flamingo stamp set in Tranquil Tide and Mint Macaron Inks some full strength, some stamping off once and some stamping off twice, around the top of the Whisper White panel.  I stamped the water from the Fabulous Flamingo stamp set on the bottom of the Whisper White panel in Seaside Spray Ink, stamping off once.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Tea Together Stamp Set in the center of the Whisper White panel on top of the flamingo in Pretty Peacock Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Rococo Rose card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the palms from the Fabulous Flamingo stamp set in Tranquil Tide and Mint Macaron Inks around the top and sides of the envelope front and the envelope flap the same as I did for the card.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.  Don’t forget, if you like this set, this is the last week you can get it before it retires.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! has posted their retiring lists for the 2018-19 Annual Catalog and 2019 Occasions Catalog.  Head over to my online store to pick up those retiring items now!  They’re only available while supplies last from now through June 3!

A few notes about the lists:

  • Due to high demand for retiring stamp sets, these items will have guaranteed availability until May 24; all other products are not guaranteed and are available while supplies last only.
  • Order deadline to get the retiring products:  June 3, 2019; 11:50 PM (MT)

Please note, some of the bundle items may be carrying over into the new 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.  However, the bundle pricing will go away, so get them while you can at the discounted price!!

Stampin’ Up! Retirement List Clarification

It looks like every single stamp set from the 2018-19 Annual Catalog is being retired and that isn’t the case, the carryover sets are being transitioned to Cling Mount.

The stamp sets offered in clear-mount or wood-mount in the 2018–2019 annual catalog that are carrying over into the 2019–2020 annual catalog will be offered in clear-mount and/or wood-mount until existing inventory has been depleted or until June 4, 2019 (whichever comes first).

If the inventory is depleted, you will be notified of the automatic switch to cling when placing an order for that stamp set. This means that you may end up purchasing select cling stamp sets (in carryover artwork) before they can be ordered from the catalog!  All carryover rubber stamp sets will be available in cling medium only (with the exception of background stamps in North America) beginning June 4, 2019.
