Sweet Stamps Monthly Challenge-Flip Flop Cards

The Sweet Stamps Challenge this Month is to make a Flip Flop card.
    From the new Technique Junkies newsletter, I used a technique called DP Starburst.
 and here is is 'Flipped'
And I took one more picture of the card with it completely flat......
 There is a tutorial on Splitcoast for the Flip Flop card HERE is the link.

 I used the same technique as I did for the edging to cut the die the other day where I put post it notes to the edge of these I wanted the die to cut, then put the cutting plate to the point I wanted the cutting to stop for each side of the die I used.
 I cut out the oval by tracing on the inside of the die and made one for the front and one for the back.  I used Coordinations cardstock- and I used the Shades die ink SPOT that coordinates with the cardstock color I used. I sponged Tidal Wave ink to the edges and then used the piercing tool to go around the edges.
  I stamped a small stamp in the Tidal Wave ink, then stamped off to get a lighter color- using the image for a background on my ovals. I used a light application of Blue Ice Creative paint on the background for a touch of sparkle- and I also added it to the die cut butterfly.  The rhinestones and the ribbon are the final touch.

I hope you will come join us for the challenge- it runs for an entire month- thru 6/14- so you have plenty of time to join us.

Astounding - I would never have imagined that die and that technique would work on a flip flop card. Now I have to give it a try!

WOW, Beautifully done, Shelly! Loving the way you did the flip piece with both image and sentiment. I've tried this once or twice and I need lots more practice to get anything that even slightly approximates what you've accomplished. :-D
