Monochromatic Flirty Flamingo – Share a Milkshake

It’s our weekly Monochromatic Insta Hop with the Crafty Collaborations team and today our focus is Flirty Flamingo. With this colour I straightaway thought of the Share a Milkshake bundle.

I began with a die cut frame from the Scalloped Contours dies and stamped the rainbow from the Just My Type stamp set all over the piece. Then, using the Dark Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blend, I coloured around the border of the frame to create a faux matte.

I die cut one of the ice cream swirls from Basic White Cardstock. For the other, I coloured the stamp with a Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Write Marker then spritzed it with water and stamped it onto Basic White Cardstock. Once I die cut it, I splattered it with Light Smoky Slate dots by flicking the brush tip of the Stampin’ Blend against the cap. This gave me 2 different textures (or flavours) of ice cream.

I felt the ice cream needed a background which it would really pop against so I die cut a circle from a background that was created using strips of Cardstock and DSP. This is a fun way to use up some scraps. I used a leftover piece on the sentiment as well.

I die cut a cherry from Basic White and Rose Gold Cardstock, colouring the white one with Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends. Once I trimmed this, I added it on top of the Rose Gold die cut making this truly the ‘cherry on top’ of my card.

Life is Sweeter With You – Colour Palette #14

For my card using Colour Palette #14 I’ve used the Share a Milkshake stamps and coordinating dies. I wanted to create a soft watercolour background for my summery card. Perhaps I’m trying to feel warm right in the middle of some chilly days here in Melbourne!

Watercolouring is one of my favourite techniques as I love the unpredictability of it and there really is nothing that can go wrong. It looks amazing whatever course the water takes.

Flirty Flamingo ink was blended over the Fluid 100 Cardstock using a Blending Brush. I spritzed it with water which created a stipple effect. Taking a Water Painter, I added some more ink and water to create more movement on the panel.

The Share a Milkshake stamp set images are designed for two-step stamping and I used Lemon Lolly stamped off to create the lighter colour on the glass. The ice cream was stamped in Flirty Flamingo stamped off.

Until 30th June you can get the Bright & Beautiful Designer Series Paper along with a range of others on sale at 15% off . Shop our Designer Series Paper sale HERE.

I used the smallest hearts and blended Gorgeous Grape ink over it. Then each one was stamped with the small ice cream stamp to create the little dots for some texture. A fussy cut, heat embossed sentiment on Basic Black Cardstock adds a nice contrast against the softer colours. Oh and I’ve snuck in Pumpkin Pie with some sprinkle embellishments coloured with the Dark Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blend.
