Oddball Flamingo!

Oddball Flamingo!

Two of my favorites, Oddballs and Flamingoes.


I do love the Oddballs. I don’t know why, but I just DO! I’ve always loved flamingoes also. But even more now that it is the mascot of the community we live in. For this flamingo I paper pieced, and hot foiled! So, on with the show and tell…


I paper pieced the body of the flamingo, and colored his feet, eyelid and beak with my Copic markers.


For the background I used my new Glimmer club kit for July! I used the teal foil, which (SORRY) photographs nothing what it looks like!


Check out my hot foil plate, I accidentally placed my foil wrong side down. It in NO way affects the plate if you happen to be not paying attention like I did!

Spellbinders Hot Foil Club for June 2022

Spellbinders Hot Foil Club for June 2022

Paisley Glimmer!


I thought Mays club kit was cool, but boy June is right up on top also. If you don’t know about Spellbinders Clubs, they have quite a few. I decided that a good way for me to learn and build my hot foil items was to join the Glimmer Hot Foil Club. Reasonably priced at $22.50, it is well worth the price. You get super fun hot foil plates and dies and a roll foil. Junes came with the rainbow one, which is super pretty. Now on with the show and tell…


I foiled my Paisleys in silver, they came out SO pretty. Then I cut them out with the coordinating die. It has a neat pie crust edge. There is a smaller one the cuts to the inner paisley also, but with a straight edge. I think it would look cool layered…..hmm might have to try that! I also ink blended the round end with Wilted Violet and my Bitty Bunny Blending Brush!

I foiled and cut out my sentiment with the coordinating die.


I added loads of Jewels from Buttons Galore & More Neutral mix. I adhered them with Tonic Deluxe.

Card Details:

  • Card base of Accent Opaque White 120lb
  • White layer, also base paper cut with Whimsy Stamps Sprinkle Scallop die, adhered with fun foam and 1/4 inch double side adhesive
  • Paisleys and sentiment hot foiled on Glimmer machine with silver foil, both were die cut with coodinating dies
  • Paisleys ink blended with Distress Oxides in Wilted Violet with Bitty Bunny Blending Brush, just on the rounded end, purple Jewlez added with Tonic Deluxe, adhered with foam squares
  • Sentiment added with micro foam squares
  • Lots of Jewelz from the Neutral mix added for fun.
  • Envelope embellished with some color coordinated paper and 6 inch double side adhesive
