Sometimes 2 stamp sets simply look like they are just meant to be used together. In today's card, you'll notice how nicely Fabulous Flamingo and Tropical Chic stamp sets play together. I love all the cheerful colors together And I really like the add the texture of the Tropical Thinlit dies used as embossing tools with the Big Shot Embossing Mats.
Watch this Stampin' Up! Video that explains how you can use your dies for embossing.
My Flamingo was stamped in 3 different layers. The bottom or base layer was stamped with Powder Pink Ink. And the second more detailed layer was stamped with Flirty Flamingo Ink. The final outlined layer was stamped with Tuxedo Black Ink.
I used sponge daubers to add two tone layers of ink for my Tropical Chic Flowers and foliage. The flowers were ink with Mango Melody and Berry Burst Ink. And the Foliage takes on a two toned look by partially sponging Shade Spruce Ink and stamping on Lemon Lime Twist Card Stock. I cut a few additional fronds from Granny Apple Green and Shaded Spruce Card Stock.
So what do you think? Are the Fabulous Flamingo and Tropical Chic Stamp Set good playmates?
Have a fabulous day,
