Flashback Friday - Flippin' Out!

Hello friends!  Welcome to another Flashback Friday!
Yay!  Friday is finally here!  It's still the hot dog days of Summer and so I thought it would be fun to create a Summer theme design for today!

I have decided to pull out a few of my older stamps and combine them with some more current items on my design for let's have a look at today's "Flashback Friday".....
I am using a couple of older Stampin' Up! stamp sets called:
"Around & About" and also another old set called "A Little Love".  These are both dated as 2003 and 2004. I've combined it with a brand new set I got along with a couple of current trends:
So I've combined these older stamp sets along with a brand new set I just got from Simon Says Stamp in their new card kit called:  Flip Flop Season (I've used the sentiment from the set.) and I've also made this a CAS one layer card, which is pretty popular right now.  I've also done an emboss resist technique with some distress ink blending.

For the frames, I had to pull out my "Stamp-a-ma-jig" to line it up over the flip flop image.  I stamped one slightly askew and layered with another frame image in black ink over top of that.  I also drew some lines with my Copic liner pen to mimic the style of frame over the flip flops.  The flip flops were colored in with my Copic markers and I stamped the dotted frame using the same colors of distress inks that I've used for my masked emboss resist blending.  There is also a clear gel pen in the kit which I've used to cover the tiny flowers on the flip flops for a bit of sparkle.

This card was very simple and fun to create!  I'm so glad that I was able to pull out some more of those OLD stamps and tools from my stash and use them again...and I got to use some of my NEW goodies along with it!!  Can't get any better than this, right?!  Life IS better in flip flops!! :)

Thanks so much for checking in with me today!
Please be sure to stop by again on Monday as I have a special post to share with you!
Bye for now! :)  Enjoy your weekend!

Love the "hot" colors you used for your sponged panel. The emboss reset looks great. Love the lined frame and the dotted frame on top of it. Just a great combination of images, graphics and colors. Thanks so much for linking up and playing with us at AAA Cards.

What a fun and super summer card - flashes of bright color, a little whimsical cheer - this is absolutely spot on for a fun summery card! Love your flashback Fridays! I just packed up my cabana and put away the last of my stamps, but many I had an urge to get out as they've been on a shelf for 5+ years! Blessings!
