Hero Arts Flamingo Stamp Set
Here is the card I made so you can see what I am taking about. I started with a 6" square card and die cut the front edge with the border die I talked about in the last post. I then added some cute flamingo paper I found at JoAnn's. For the inside I put a light blue-green paper that would look good with all the pink. I stamped a sentiment at the bottom right that came with the flamingo set.
I then made my flamingos. I stamped the body using the 3-layering images. The eye and beak image took a bit of positioning to get them in the right place. Once I had that done I got ready to die cut the images. I did not stamp the legs...here is the second tip...stamp the legs AFTER you die cut the image (so much easier to position). If you are not die cutting the image, you can stamp the legs after the body.
Once positioned, I stamped three water movement circles at the bottom so it looks like my flamingo is standing in water. I do like the look of the layered color flamingo and that you can die cut the images for adding dimension to a card. I've always liked Hero Arts stamps and these new clear stamps make nice clear images, so I will probably invest in more.
