By Taheerah | 16th July 2014 | 22 Comments

Hey everyone!

This is my second post of the day! Please scroll down to see the Neat & Tangled Release – you definitely won’t want to miss today’s project!!!

I’m back today to welcome to Day 3 of the Newton’s Nook July Release!

We have FOUR *awesome* sets being released this month – and you’re totally invited to come party with us!

This month we’ve got something for everyone, and an extra-special celebration as it’s also coming up to Newton’s Nook Designs’ First Birthday – and it’s the first release for our new Design Team too!! Today’s set is an another fun set that is right on trend – Flirty Flamingos!!

I decided to keep the design trendy and fun! Here’s what I came up with: 

Tickled Pink Flamingos Card by Taheerah Atchia

What do you think? Funky right?!

I started by stamping the flamingo onto Pure White cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured him with Copics. I trimmed him out carefully and set him aside whilst I prepared my tag. This was a ready-made tag from the BasicGrey Highline Collection which I stamped with the sentiment  and the flamingo legs from the set. I adhered my flamingo body to my tag and the tag to a speech bubble die cut from patterned paper from the Studio Calico Valley High Card Kit using the Neat & Tangled A Lot To Say die. Each layer was adhered using Pinflair Glue Gel.

Onto the base now! I adhered a gold doily from the OHDEERME April 2014 kit to my base then added some Lawn Fawn Pink Lemonade cord. I adhered my speech bubble to my base using Pinflair then added some star sequins (including one to act as a crown!) and I was all done!
