Hello, I hope you are enjoying your Saturday!
For today’s card, I’m sharing one of my favorite styles of card – a Flip-It! I think they are just a lot of fun, and I know my nieces and nephew enjoy receiving them because they have moving parts. I couldn’t resist the sheep image… March goes in like a lion and out like a lamb, right?? It sure did for us this year!
For the card base, I used Neenah Solar White 110# cardstock. It is nice and heavy, and the score lines create nice, clean creases. I also used Neenah Solar White 110# cardstock for the sheep, which is stamped with Tuxedo Black ink, die cut, and colored with Copics. For an accent, the strip along the side of the card is cut from Epic Black cardstock. The green paper on the sides of the card is some origami paper from my stash, and the yellow textured cardstock is from my stash as well.
The stamps and dies I used are new for me. They are by Stephanie Barnard, one of Sizzix’s designers, called Sheep2Stamp and the matching Sheep2Stamp die set. Inside the card, I also used the Elegant Labels framelit dies to cut out solid shapes for the other side and stamped “Just for Ewe.” The flip-it card die set is the Elegant Flip-it Card Set and I used it in conjunction with the Elegant Labels framelits.

Life’s been crazy around here lately, so my mojo has been on hiatus. I hope it comes back soon – and in full force! This little girl was too cute, and I am happy with how this flip it card turned out for From the Heart’s progressive challenge.
For this card, I used Stephanie Barnard’s Ornate Flip It’s #2 Card die, and I cut it out of 130 pound Richeson watercolor paper, which I love because it is super heavy. It makes the card flip with ease. I cut out the adorable image of the Pumpkin Patch Girl using my circle Spellbinders die after coloring her with the following Copic markers: B000, B32, B41, B45, E00, E04, E08, E11, E19, E29, E49, E50, G20, YG61, YG63, YR02, YR04, and YR09.
The designer paper, which I cut using the same dies as previously mentioned, are from the K&Company Sleepy Tree paper pack. I think they are perfect for a Fall card.
