Christmas Card 2017: Inkadinkado Flamingos..


So whilst I was in London I managed an evening of stamping and colouring.

I stamped a lot of Christmas card stuff and this week I have been turning them into cards.

I bought this fun set by Inkadinkado last year in the post-Christmas sale at Michaels and I mainly bought it for the flip-flops, chair and the Flamingo.

I stamped the Flamingo onto watercolour paper and coloured them using Zigs and a paintbrush.

I die-cut them out using a MFT stitched rectangle die and added a sentiment to the bottom of the panel. I decided to get fancy and heat emboss the Simon Says Stamp Flamingo background stamp directly onto the card blank!! Don't worry I only make in fours..this would be a lot of effort for 100+ cards!

I like the end result, totally random, but a lot of fun.

I also made a slightly different more Christmassy version -



  1. Fabulous cards, love the flamingos but that penguin is so stinkin cute in the set!

  2. This stamp set is amazing, I think they're all pretty awesome. These cards are great, I really like your second set with the giant banner shape - that's a nice idea, hadn't ever thought of that before...good inspiration x
