Hello Friends and Happy Monday!

Today I have a fun Flippin' Fabulous Flip Flop Friendship Card to share with you (try saying that 3 times fast, lol). I've had this idea in my head since I first saw the new FLIP FLOP BUILDER DIES. It was actually inspired by a photo I took a few years ago with some of my friends after we had all gone for a pedicure together. So I thought it would be fun to create the summer version of my photo, which could be used for so many occasions.

Here is the inspiration photo

CARD DETAILS

The first thing I did was select the pattern papers I was going to use on for my flip flops which all came from the HOT TROPICS PAPER PAD. I then used the FLIP FLOP BUILDER DIES to die cut each set of flip flops. I also die cut the flip flops from 110bs white cardstock to add some reinforcement under the pattern pieces.

Once the shoes were assembled, I then created the background. I used the largest DOUBLE STITCHED SQUARE DIE to die cut a panel from kraft cardstock. Next, I used a BACKGROUND BLENDER BRUSH to add some Gathered Twigs Distress Oxide Ink (DO) around the edges of the panel. I then used the SANDY SHORES stamp out the sand on the background this time using Vintage Photo DO ink.

To the back of each flip flop, I added some foam tape and glued them to the card panel. Anything that hung over the edge of the panel I snipped off with scissors.

The sentiments I used come from the FLIPPIN FABULOUS stamp set that I then die cut with the coordinating dies from the FLIPPIN FABULOUS DIE Set.

For an added touch of bling, I used matching gem stickers on each flip flop that comes from the HOT TROPICS Sticker set.

I hope this card inspired you today. I would just love to throw on my flip flops and head to the beach right now, hopefully someday soon I will be able to do that again. Have a wonderful week friends!

Thank you for stopping by and until next time... Happy Crafting ๐Ÿ‘‹

Missing You - Slimline Beach Shaker Card | Honey Bee Stamps


Missing You, Beach Scene Shaker Card, Honey Bee Stamps, Card Making, Stamping, Die Cutting, handmade card, Slimline Card, ilovedoingallthingscrafty, Stamps, how to, Making Waves long Border Dies, Hello Summer, Ink Blending,

Hello friends and Happy Monday!

Like many of you, we will be having a staycation this summer. It's time to explore our own backyards and enjoy the nature around us. Thankfully we do have mountains and lakes a few hours away that we can explore. We will miss the beach this year, but hopefully, we will have things figured out for next summer as we would love to travel back to Europe to visit our family and maybe get that beach time in. Today's shaker card theme is about missing someone, so I thought it would be appropriate to create a missing you Beach card.

CARD DETAILS

To start, I began by die cutting 2 of the frames from the SLIMLINE SENTIMENTS EYELET DIES. I then used the MAKING WAVES LONG BORDER DIES to create the sand and the ocean waves using the inside die cuts of the SLIMLINE SENTIMENTS EYELET DIES

I used Antique Linen and Gathered Twigs Distress Oxide Inks (OI) to blend out the sand on the gentle waves and glued those pieces together and set them aside to use later on top of the shaker card.

For the top of the card panel, I blended out a soft sun using a circle from the CIRCLE SPOTLIGHT STENCIL and Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide Ink and glued that to the card base. For the sky, I used Broken China OI.

Next, I glued the ocean waves to the middle are of the card base that I had blended Mermaid Lagoon and Salty Ocean OI. The bottom area was left blank as the sand will cover up the area in the final steps of the card.

I then glued acetate to the scalloped slimline frame and added very thin strips of foam tape all around the edges and across the bottom just under where the sand will be. This will keep the shaker bits from falling all the way down under the sand and make the confetti more visible.

On the top half of the card base, I added my Confetti Mix (see links below) in a pile and then pressed the frame in place.

Before gluing down the sand area, I stamped the missing you sentiment from PARADISE BLOOMS.  I then finished off the card by stamping out a few images from the HELLO SUMMER set and did some simple no-line coloring using Copic markers and added them to the sand area.

I hope this Missing You card doesn't make you miss the beach too much but instead inspire you to send a card to a friend that you spend time with at the beach or anywhere else that reminds you of them.

Have a wonderful week! Thank you for stopping by and until next time... Happy Crafting ๐Ÿ‘‹

Hello Summer, Blog Hop, Hello, Tropical Lattice, Friendship Card, Honey Bee Stamps, Paradise Blooms, Copics, Distress Oxide, Card Making, Stamping, Die Cutting, handmade card, ilovedoingallthingscrafty, Stamps, how to, blending,

Welcome to Day TWO of the Honey Bee Stamps Hello Summer Release Blog Hop. If you have already hopped your way here you would have arrived from Vera Yates' Blog. Stick around and I will let you know where to hop next at the end of this post. If you just want to start again from the beginning click HERE to get you started.


CARD DETAILS

My card today features the beautiful PARADISE BLOOMS that I stamped out and colored using Copic Markers and then die cut them with the coordinating PARADISE BLOOM Dies.

I then embellished each flower with glossy accents and added Liquid Pixie Dust to some and set them aside to dry while I worked on the background.

For the slimline background, I first blended distress oxide inks onto a paper panel. I then trimmed it down to fit behind the frame from the SLIMLINE SENTIMENTS EYELET DIE set.  I then created the lattice for the background using the GARDEN LATTICE CP TOP. To extend the size of the lattice, I used a partial die cut technique, but if you don't want to do that you can just join two die-cut pieces as the flowers in front will cover up the seem anyways. I then trimmed the edges of the lattice to fit under the slimline scallop frame and then glued all the layers to the card front.

Next, I arranged the flowers and glued them all to the card front using foam tape in areas to add dimension. To the centers of the Plumeria flowers, I added some white GEM STICKERS.

The hello sentiment die also comes from the SLIMLINE SENTIMENTS EYELET DIE set, I die cut it 3 times, stacked and glued it together. I also added a layer of Liquid Pixie Dust to the top of and finished off with a layer of glossy accents.
