Be Yourself! Summer Coffee Lover's Blog Hop

It's here! It's time!! It's the Fabulous Summer Coffee Lover's Blog Hop and it is FABULOUS!! I have several cards in the works so be sure to check back often! And, click through on the Blog Hop image below the last card photo and hop on through! You won't regret it!

So, on to the card!! What is more summery than a flamingo?!! This is a variation on my previous card. It's all the same stamp, Be Yourself from the A Muse Studio June Collection, and the same inks. Isn't it fun? I started with vanilla cardstock for the bow, the cup (from the retiring Perk Up stamp set - get it before it's gone forever!) and the flamingo tag. I ADORE the bow stamped with the floral mix. Both sides were stamped before assembly and grass green ink was drug along the edge. Isn't that fun!! Here's a close-up!
Berry, grass and orange inks were used for the florals and bubblegum was used for the flamingo and the hexagon background. Of course, the tag bundle die set is FANTASTIC and makes the best layering pieces for cards.
The beak on the flamingo is paper pieced and the wing is popped up.
This card would definitely make someone's day, don't you agree?! All the pieces and parts are in the June Collection (click on my shop - www.amusestudio.com/seleise, click on stamps, click on June Collection and the stamp set and die set are there! Perk Up, which is retiring, is in the Stamps section under Parties and Packaging)

Continue hopping on through the blog hop and hope to see you back here too!
Have a fabulous day!
