Flip Floppin' Goodness!

Did you guys SEE the awesome new flipflops2stamp release from The Stamps of Life? I am in LOVE with this set, you guys! For reals! Totes. AND..... now there is a fabulous companion set available called patterns4sandals AND coordinating dies, too. Yup. It's pretty darned fabulous. (If you are a Die Hard club member, you already have the dies! If not, they will be available soon! YAY!)

P.S. I may or may not have had a large Twix flavored coffee ordered light & sweet this morning. If I did, indeed, have that, I probably shouldn't be held responsible for anything that comes out of my fingertips. It's basically a cup of caffeine and sugar. Just puttin' that out there. I like to keep it real around here folks!

BUT... you should trust me on these stamps and dies being nothing less that AWESOMESAUCE!!! I am sharing two cards I created with them today!

One Step At a Time


For my first card, I went for a softer look. I created a simple heart using the flip flop stamps and a bit of masking and then watercolored over them. I added some paint splatter to bring in a touch of color and used some Lawn Fawn papers to add to the feel of the card. I super love the sentiments on this one!

I really like this color combination, too. It is soft and pretty, but still bold enough to carry it's own. I like it.

I'm Flippin' Out!


This one is a bit more on the fun side. I used a marker to add dots to create visual texture akin to sand around the flip flops. AND....this is my favorite part..I adhered the toe portion directly to the card and then added foam tape to the heel portion, so they look like they are ACTUALLY FLIPPING!!!!  I LOVE IT SO MUCH!!!! (Okay...maybe that's too much, but whatevs, I'm going with it.)

I also used more Lawn Fawn papers and sequins on this one! The colors and simple patterns are so perfect for these cards! LOVE them!

  4. May I ask how you take your photos? I am having a terrible time. Just the lighting? Lots of it? I see patterned paper behind the card, I've done that before.
