You are Flipping' Fabulous!

Hi everyone,

It's challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. As challenge hostess for the month I continue to issue the challenges!!!

According to the Days of the Year Web Site - Friday 16th is Flip-Flop Day. So for our card this week let's make flip flop cards! That can be the flip-flops that are shoes (thongs for us in Aussie)... Or Flip Flop Cards or both .... Or you may have another flip flop idea, whatever works for you. 😀

For my card today I decided to pull our a Flip-its card from The Stamps of Life. I haven't used my flip-its dies for ages so it was time for one to come out to play. As you can see I have decorated my card using flip-flops (or thongs as we say in Australia).

Go the decorative paper on my card I decided to play with my new Concord & 9th Dotty Turnabout Background Stamp set. Loving these turnabout stamps and easy to use with the MISTI. I used Distress Oxides for everything on this card except for the sentiments.

Here is a look at my card when the card is 'flipped' open. As you see I added another flip flop sentiment seeing I had them.

Don't forget to check out the CCEE Stampers blog (goes live 12 AM EST) to see the rest of the creations the CCEE Stampers created this week. You can also see more details of their creations on their individual blogs:

I am loving the oxides and all that they do!! What a great summer design with your dotted background and die cut flip flops, Frances!!

Liz Williams said...

Your card does all kinds of flippin' and I have to agree with Lynn, that background is awesome. Those oxide inks are remarkable.

So cool that you made your own background DSP - and fun Flip-It card. We used to call them thongs here too, until thong underwear became something that our kids became aware of. Then when I said I was going to get my thongs, or I need to get new thongs, their response was EEEEEEEEEWWWWWWW. Took me a couple of years to remember to remember to call them Flip-Flops. Ha!
