I hope you like this stamp set. I love it! My daughter loves flamingos. I can see her Christmas presents wrapped in paper that I've stamped with these fun flamingos!
This take out box was cut out of designer papers at the local scrapbook store. I purchased a membership to use the die cut machines there and went to town! While I was at the store, they had a class on "sponging" die cuts. I decided to try it out on this box.


This scene was created using the polka dotted palm tree from the Flamingos on Vacation set. I colored the stamp's leaves with a marker and then stamped. I didn't like the result at first but now I do!

  2. Awesome idea for the takeout box Anna! I think I need to pull mine out and get to work on them. Love your stamped/sponged scene too.

  3. That take out box is really clever, as is putting one "hot" on your scene and then carrying over. Well done, Anna!

  6. Like that you thought outside the box as in the take out box. Did you know that a Flamingo gets its pink color from the food it eats.
