Flippin for Flip-its!These

I started designing these cards in February wehn the Stampin Chix were supposed to meet.  Unfortunately, the weather was bad on the day that we were to meet and so I didn't get to make them that day.  February was so dreary that I think I was yearning to work with some bright and cheerful colors.  I got my chance in March when I made a trip to Florida and had a little extra time to put these cards together.  They are made with the Sizzix Flip-its die cuts and Graphic 45 paper.  I like that the Sizzix dies not only have a die to cut out the card itself, but they also come with dies for the layers on the card.  Fabulous!!  Now if they would just add another layer or two, they would be perfect!  My chicken is looking kind of streaky here.  Not sure why and I don't recall that it looks that way in person.  I will have to take another look at it and maybe do some blending.  That is one of the reasons why I like to blog.  Seeing the picture on the computer screen helps me critique my work.  The Copics are really great too in that you can go back long after you have finished a project and rework the blending.

The images and sentiments are from Artistic Impressions and are rubber stamped with Ranger Archival ink.  The orange daisies across the top are a Martha Stewart Punch.  Those were not on the original card, but some adhesive ran amuck and I had to do some damage control.

I picked up the dimensional embellishments at Joanns.  I'm not sue what the brand is.

Love this cute little owl guy!  Overall, I give the Flip-its a thumbs up and five stars.  These cards went together very quickly with no measuring.  They also come in a little plastic durable pouch so that you don't have to worry about losing all the little pieces.
