Hot Pink and Flamingos!

Hello! The new Among the Stars release from Simon Says Stamp is finally LIVE!!! I have been super excited about this card since I made it - and so excited to finally be able to share! Woohoo! Aren't those flamingos FABULOUS?!?!?

I had SOOO much fun creating the background on this - using something I hadn't tried before this card - SSS Rainbow Sparkle Embossing Powder! I'm in LOVE! I stamped the flamingos with Versamark ink using my MISTI so that I could stamp them twice to get a nice dark impression, then sprinkled on the embossing powder and heat set. Glittery flamingos? YES please!!!

Next, I blended on some distress ink in Picked Raspberry, flicked on some clear Heidi Swapp Color Shine (which reacted with the distress ink to make it more fun!), added a strip of black along one side, and a sentiment from a SSS set that I got for free last month for placing an order during my birthday month. I found it on the website last week, but now don't see it to link it for this post - but make sure and sign up for email alerts, you might get a fun coupon for your birthday too! Final finishing touch was a few bright pink sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

Here are links to the products I used on this including affiliate links where possible. Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!!!
