For my first sample, I made a Flip Flop card with the new Flip Flop Fun stamp set!Creative Nugget: After making the octagonal cuts and scoring the card, some fun, summery DP found in my stash was stitched onto the card base. The main panel was masked and sponged with Memento inks. Torn pieces of Core'dinations paper were sponged and layered for the sand. The flip flops from Flip Flop Fun were stamped on coordinating DP and cut with the matching Flip Flop Dies. Sparkly gems add a fun touch to the flip flops. The sentiment was stamped on a Pennant die cut.
When the card is opened, you see the flip side of the main panel which was sponged through the Rays stencil. Sparkly embossing powder and modeling paste were used on the alternating rays. The back panel was made with the larger of the flip flops from Flip Flop Fun and cut with the larger of the Flip Flop Dies. Both sentiments were stamped on banners cut with the Pennant Dies. Dew drops and gems were added to finish the card.
The sand dollar from the Ocean Treasures stamp set was used to create a more vintage-like card for my second sample.
Creative Nugget: The Sand Dollar from Ocean Treasures and the Sand Dollar Bookmark were stamped repeatedly on a scrap piece of DP. This panel was cut into strips and stitched to a piece of Kraft card stock. The sand dollar was embossed on Core'dinations card stock, the same used for the card base, hand cut, and mounted on the Crocheted Circle die cut. The sentiment from Ocean Treasures fit perfectly on the Antique Label Designs label and was cut with the matching Antique Labels & Border Dies. This was mounted to a border cut with the Spellbinders Curved Borders Die. The sentiment was attached with some distressed seam binding, and pearls were added to finish the card.
