I think Miss Flamingo is pretty darn cute all dressed up to go to a party in the Everglades - especially since "cute" is the theme for our A Blog Named Hero Challenge this month.

After stamping and die cutting Miss Flamingo, created her plumage by smooshing a feather in the same color ink as I had stamped the body.  I free handed the hat and used a punch for the pom-pom on her hat.  Found a balloon die and also a present stamp to add on.  Added some clear enamel dots and done.  Will add "happy birthday" or "celebrate" on the inside when needed.
Making a "cute" card is way out of my comfort zone - but if I can do it, so can you.  Have a go at something cute and enter it here for our challenge and you'll have a chance to win one of two gift cards from Hero Arts.
Hero Arts also has a challenge to use critters on a card - Miss Flamingo certainly qualifies as a critter so am entering my card there.

Thanks for stopping by.


  1. That feather is such fun and really ups the cute factor.

  2. Just love how you used ink to match the feather with the body, Betty! Very, very cute flamingo and see - it didn't hurt a bit!! Love the scene you created too!!

  3. Oh! Betty! The flamingo lady looks fancy with the coral feather! And you've created a great scene for her!

  4. This is adorable. Definitely cute Betty.

  5. My jaw dropped when I saw this on IG! Absolutely fabulous card, Betty--love the added feather!

  6. What a fancy card! I love the feather and the doilies!
