This card I made with a special friend in mind. She loved it. This is a Stampin Bella stamp. It does have a cool saying but I went with the hello instead. I think the saying is "Girls just wanna have fun!".
I found these fun papers at Craft Warehouse and used a stampin up embossing folder on the white cardstock and added the pink rhinestones. The girls dresses are paper pieced. Since I am really not into coloring these days it was lots easier. I totally glittered the pink dress and glittered the plaid dress just on the edges.

I am really getting into these flip-it cards! They are soo much fun!
This card is all from The Stamps of LIfe . I am loving her stamps also. This flip-it die is an exclusive die made by sizzix for The Stamps of Life. I have used a set called birthday4cookie and the matching dies. Everything had a die except for the gift on the front of the card.
I have learned that it is so much easier to cut your die first and then stamp it (if it is a clear stamp).
I had so much fun with this card. I even pulled out my sugar coating glitter I think I may have use once.
These stamps and dies I purchased at convention but the website is great!!
There is also a video for almost everything on her website. I met Stephanie Barnard at convention and she was just like she is in the videos.
I wish my picture showed up a little better. It is so much cooler in real life.

I made this flip it card yesterday and it was so much fun. I had no idea what I was doing.
But I cut out the card and then I found this fun paper pack at Michaels (my favorite color combo) and cut out the papers. The next step is decide what you want to do from there. I was having a hard time finding stamps to fit in the middle. I had cut out all the centers and glued them in before I knew what I was doing (BIG mistake). I ended up doing new centers for a couple of them.
I also had glued them in so I couldnt gently peel them off like I could have if I had used double sided tape like I usually do.
I finally pulled out this Taylored Expressions set and used the teapot and teapot die. I used one of the sentiments from the set too.
Then I decided my card was too plain. So I pulled some more paper from my new stack and made the flowers to go with the card and added them and some ribbon I had just recieved with my Ellen Hutson order as a thank you gift.
I really like how this card turned out! I also added the white piece of paper on the right side of the card so there would be a little space to write in.
I really want to get more of these flip it dies. I love them!!!
