Black, white and lime green

Hello everyone! I just loved the inspiration photo of this month's blog hop from PTI and decided to join in! I actually got to make two cards!




I unearthed the Green Thumb set because I really wanted to use that rubber boot with this yummy lime green cardstock. It's from the Bazzill smoothie line.  The dots embossing folder is from Provo Craft and I used the bigger one to match the polka dots in the boot. Green ink is from Colorbox and Ranger archival ink in Jet black. Black rhinestones added to the bottom left corner and gingham ribbon added across the top completes the look.


I just got my newest stamps in the mail today and as you all know, you immediately pull them out and start to play and create. I cut the flipflops out using the die from PTI using that lime green cardstock. I stamped the polka dots in Versamark and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder. They are popped up on the card using foam tape as is the white thong part. Border die is from Memory Box and the black gingham paper is from Impress Rubber Stamps, which is a LSS for me. =) 

 


So, which one grabs you the most? I like them both, but for very different reasons!

Have a great Memorial Day weekend!

I like them both too! However, 'flippin' is my oops word. When I am really really upset, I say that instead of 'you know what'. So I think that's my favorite! Both are so much fun, and what a great take on the photo! Thanks for sharing :)
