Anything Goes with My Creative Time!

Hello my crafty friends and welcome back!!  It's "Anything Goes" today for My Creative Time and I've made a clean and simple summer themed card!

The weather here in Manitoba has been quite beautiful lately and it's full-on flip flop season! Although, as I'm writing this post, we are in the middle of a thunderstorm.  Which as long as it doesn't get too severe, it's all good because we need rain!!

Anyway, back to my card!! I started by stamping both the large and small stripe from the Build A Scripty Watercolour Background Stamp Set in a couple different shades of blue.  I actually stamped the skinnier stripe over the wider stripe.

The wider stripe is very light but you can kind of see it :).  To add a bit more pizazz to the card, I decided to do some gold heat embossing.  I used one of the stripe stamps from the Mad For Plaid Stamp and Die Set and tried to evenly space the stamping. I decided to heat emboss the sentiment as well. After all the stamping was done, I used the largest rectangle die from the More Stitched Rectangular Dies to cut the panel down.

Those cute little flip flops (or thongs as they used to be called in my day, hahaha) were made using the Sit Back and Relax Stamp and Die Set. I should also mention that the sentiment is from this set as well.

I used green fun foam to pop these flip flops up which also looks a lot like the soles!!  A few lime green enamel dots add a bit of jazz.

And that's my card for today!! I hope you enjoyed and that your summer has been "flipping' amazing" so far!!

Until next time...stay crafty!!!



  1. OMG Miss Laurie...What a Super Beautiful Card!! Your stamping idea sure makes for a Fabulous me does look like water!! Your Flip Flops are so cute...Love your fancy schmancy toe grip...ooooh la la!! You so did a Super Outstanding Creative job!! YOU so Rock!!

  2. What a fabulous card! I could do with some flip flops as it's boiling here too and we haven't had the thunderstorm we need so some of my plants have fried in the bright sunshine. Shouldn't complain as it makes such a nice change from the cold! Just love the colours and how clever to use an enamel dot for the thong on the sandal. xx

  3. Cute card! Love the flip flops!
    Have a great day!

  4. What a great summer card. I like how you mixed the stripes and did the embossing. I used to call the flip flops thongs that it has a new meaning I will call them flip flops ;) Yours are so pretty with the gold and enamel. Wonderful job. Glad you are having great summer weather.
