Lil' Inker Designs July Release Blog Hop {Day 4}

Welcome to {Day 4} of the Lil' Inker Designs July Release! If you arrived from Alicia Thelin's blog, you're on the right track. If you'd like to start at the beginning, please go to Laura Pryor's blog for all the details. Today's feature is all about the Flip Flop Dies & Stamp Set! This is a concept I brought to Laura's attention several months ago and I'm so excited that it's now a reality. I love that you can do so much with these little flip flops. There are thong and regular sandal tops that can be embellished. I even used the small flowers as centres and sole cushion/designer label as leaves on my {Day 2} card! I can imagine using the small bows to embellish people or animal stamps, too. How's that for versatility? A huge thank you to Laura and Ariana for bringing my vision to life!

On my shaped card, I used one of the floral backgrounds on the entire base and heat embossed it. Then I featured a pair of cute flip flops and sentiment in summery colours. I stamped the sentiment on the original Sentiment Flag die and the little circle is the same circle that is on the little flowers. So cute! I can see myself sending flip flop cards to all my girlfriends and I bet you can, too. ;)

Now it's time to send you over to Jen del Muro's blog! If you missed the Flip Flop hop on {Day 3}, here are the posts you'll want to leave comments on for your chance to win one of two $10 gift certificates to the Lil' Inker Store.
