Flippin' Fridays - Flower Shop Flip Cards

OK...I can honestly say I've officially flipped over the new Thinlits Dies that make these super cute flip cards. It seems like these are the only cards I've been making lately! I just got the Circle one in my last order that came earlier this week, but I've been too sick to even play with my stuff. :-( Today I am feeling much better though, so I plan to have some fun stamping. First, I thought I had better update my blog since it's been a while and thought it would be fun to showcase a new flip card each Friday...so for my first "Flippin' Friday" post I have several cards to share...all using the same design, but with different DSP and accents.

I love the color combo of Pool Party, Calypso Coral, Gumball Green & Daffodil Delight picked up from the Epic Day DSP.
The Subtles Candy Dots are the perfect accent to dot the "i" in "hi" and for the center of the flower. Here's a couple more variations of this card using the Itty Bitty Banners stamp set and coordinating Bitty Banners Framelits.

I told you I have been having fun with these! Here are a couple more cards using the same color combo but with the Quatrefancy Specialty DSP.

Helpful hint: When cutting out detailed peices such as the "hi" die cut shown above, use waxed paper in between the card stock and your thinlit die. It makes all the difference in the world when trying to remove it from the die after it's been cut.

Since Pool Party is such a light color, I used the Rock 'n Roll Technique on the stamped & punched flower. First, I inked it in Pool Party, then I rock 'n rolled it in Island Indigo so it would stand out more.

Hope you enjoy these flippin' fun cards! Have a GREAT weekend!

Friends this information about flowers hope you like it and this good information for you. One of the most common trees in Australia, the Eucalyptus tree, also known as gum trees, produce beautiful blossoms. They have a wide range of colours, such as white, red and yellow green flowers. Instead of petals, these flowers have stamen like growths that surround the centre of the flower. As there are a wide variety of eucalyptus trees, their blossoms come in many different forms and colours as well. Australian flowers come in a wide variety of shapes, sizes, colours and they may grow on shrubs, trees or as flowering plants. Each region of the country has their own unique flowers, many of which are used in floral arrangements or bouquets.
