D2BA: Kick back .... and relax!

 Hi friends!

 Since I live in South Florida, I practically live in flip flops!
(the other half of the time, I'm probably barefoot - LOL!)

I'm thrilled to be on the blog today as a guest designer for Dare2BArtzy
for the month of March.
 Last week, I shared an arctic penguin fun card
 Today, we'll head into the sunshine for some sun 
and sand in our flip flops with this card!  
The beautiful stamp set that is featured on today's card
is called exactly that ~ Flip Flops!
 Too fun!

For today's card, I used my D2BA Totally Black premium die ink
and stamped out the sentiment in the Flip Flops #16218 stamp set 
onto heavy weight white cardstock using the MISTI.
These inks stamp crisp and perfectly every.  single.  time!
I then stamped the adirondack chair onto textured paper ~
and I didn't continually restamp it with the MISTI
in order to give it a wooden, weather look.
(please note: My deck chair here in this card is stamped with
SU! chocolate chip ink!)
Next, I ran that through my cuttlebug with a sloped, stitched die,
added some twine and buttons and brightly colored paper
to complete the beachy look.

The inside carries over the same theme as the front
with the flip flops and another sentiment in the set.
This stamp set is truly wonderful ~
and one you can use over and over again for a variety of cards!
I'm already working on more cards with this set :)

Here's a look at the Flip Flops stamps set and dies:

I hope today you can kick back ... and relax! 
Thanks for stopping by today!

Big hugs, bigger blessings!


  1. Brilliant! Wish I could be wearing flip flops in the sand today - it's snow boots and snow for us I'm afraid! Love the chair especially, it really does look weathered. Enjoy your day at the beach!

  2. This is a really cute card. Like Shona said in a comment above mine. It's snow boots for me too right now... But during the summer I live in sandals!
