For Day 3, the design team is showcasing the Shark Frenzy and Flamingo Flock stamp set:


Since we are featuring a ton of products this week, I will not have a step-by-step tutorial on how I made the cards.  However, be sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel because I will posting video tutorials for most of the cards that you see today in the next few weeks.

You will notice for today’s post, I have a similar card design for both cards I’m featuring today.

Here is my card showcasing the Shark Frenzy stamp set.   I also used the Sunscape stencil to create my scene.  I wanted to create another birthday card since I always send those out to my family and friends.


I also used the Frames and Flags die set.


I think this stamp set os so much fun and it has a lot of possibilities.

Here’s my card featuring the Flamingo Flock stamp set.  This one is really cute.  I wanted one flamingo to stand out above the crowd so I only colored one in pink.  The rest were in gray.


I don’t have a ton of friends but the ones I do have just stand out above the crowd.    They are what I call “my people”.


Here’s another look:


I hope you like my cards today and got inspired.

    love the fun little party hat on the hammerhead shark and the 1 pink flamingo is so pretty!


  2. LOL The birthday hat on the shark is so fun – love that! And I
    love how you made the one flamingo stand out and ‘stand tall’ to
    go with the sentiment. Fabulous cards.


  3. Your cards are gorgeous, Maria (as always)! I love sharks – these actually look kind of scary – but your addition of the birthday hat made them so fun! Love the spotlght on the single flamingo! Awesome new release from NN!


  4. Wonderful cards…love the little party hat on one of the sharks and the spotlight colouring of one flamingo.


  5. FANTASTIC cards! I really am liking how you have only one colored Shark and one Flamingo very cool looking! I also love the party hat on the Shark hilarious!!


  6. Love the way you had one of the sharks & one of the flamingos stand out on these cards! Very cute cards!


  7. Your cards are awesome! Love the addition of the stenciled background with the sentiment inside the ‘sun’. So much fun.


  8. Your cards are fantastic ! I really love how you made this hammer-shark look friendly. I really think the sharks have a reputation they do not deserve ! Thank you for them !
