Flip Flops!

Are you ready for some more Lil' Inker Designs fun?  The design team has another great set to share with you today!  It is so cute!  If you are following along in the blog hop you should have come from Amy's blog. If you would like to start at the beginning please visit Laura's blog.

I have been so excited about this release for months!  When Laura first told us that we would be getting these for a release several months ago, I wondered how I was going to wait that long!  Well, the time has come to finally share Lil' Inker Designs Flip Flop Dies & Stamp Set!  And if you think you've seen a set like this before, you are wrong! :) This is so unique in so many different ways!


For my first project, I wanted to showcase how this set is SO UNIQUE...and it is part of the reason that I love it so much!  Included in this set are dies to cut male flip flops (or beach flip flops) AND soles for the shoes!  How cool is that!! OHHH, and the sentiments in this set are so cool!! So creative!! So versatile!!


Aren't the "man" flip flops cool?  And the soles?  LOVE them!!  The LID signature stitched detail is also wonderful!


Up next is another card featuring the female & male flip flops.  And the sentiment..."Just Married".  I haven't seen that sentiment around much and I think it is so cool that it is paired with these dies!


Here's a closeup of the detail.  There's also a surprise, an interactive element to this card....


I cut the flip flops so they would open up to reveal the sentiment!  It says, "Enjoy Your Honeymoon"!  Another great sentiment that you don't find very often!  I punched little tiny Velcro fasteners with my Big Bite Crop-a-dile and attached them to the flip flops so that they would stay shut and open easily. The littlest heart on the inside is from the flip flop dies that can be used to embellish the flip flops and the biggest heart is from the "Of the Heart" dies that was released previously.

Here's what the flip flop set looks like:



Did you SEE those sentiments??  
his & hers
Missing My Mate
A Perfect Match
Enjoy Your Honeymoon
Just Married
Quite a Pair
Everything is better in flip flops
etc, etc, etc

I mean, how FUN and UNIQUE and VERSATILE are those sentiments?  LOVE!!
