more Flip-it card love!

A few weeks ago I told you about the Flip-it card contest at The Stamps of Life, and I have a few more Flip-it's to share with you, that I created for the Sizzix booth at CHA. 
You can get the whole scoop on the contest, over on the TSOL blog. You have until the 10th of February to get in your entries! 

For this first card, I turned this to an up-and-down card from the direction that these cards generally flow, so you pull it UP to open it. Fun, huh!? 
 It was fun to play with these new Stephanie Barnard stamps from Sizzix, because many of them are variations of stamps from The Stamps of Life.  You see, Stephanie Barnard owns TSOL, but she also designs for Sizzix. It's a really fun combination of coordinating products, and I LOVE working with them!  All of these stamps have coordinating dies.  If you've been with me for a while, you know that I am fairly new to diecutting. . . but it has sucked me in, in a major way.  (I have Stephanie to blame for most of that! ha!)  It's so EASY to knock out a bunch of cards when you can diecut them speedy quick!   The perfectionist in me LOVES it.  Perfectly trimmed lines every time.
Okay - I think I better get my kiddo to school.  Mommy blogging is probably NOT an acceptable excuse for his tardiness! 

But before I go, here are some links for you. . .first off, my dear pal Tami did a GREAT tutorial on the Flip-it's dies.  Check it out and tell her that she's fabulous, kay? ;)  
And if you'd like to see all the new Sizzix/Stephanie Barnard stamps and dies that were just released at CHA, you can find them on the Sizzix website! (the newest goodies are on page 2-3) 

PS. . .check this out! I just found a great video of Stephanie teaching one of the other card samples that I created for CHA!  Fun stuff!!!
