A touch of summer

It's rather cold here in my part of the world - it seems someone turned on the winter air-con and we've all been pulling out the winter woollies and scarves!  I was actually huffing smoke at work this morning while setting up the playground equipment!

That's why I really needed a touch of summer from Crafting with Deedee's Digi's - you will find the cutest digi stamps over there and some really neat challenges - one of which I am going to show you today.  First I used a freebie stamp - yep that's right a freebie! and then I used the challenge requirements: use the colours turquoise/ocean blue, green and pink.
I love the versatility of digi stamps and am collecting quite a few - they take up no room on my desk, and store neatly on my computer!  For this stamp I printed two at the size I wanted.  Why two?  Here's a picture:

I made my flip-flops 3D!!!  I simply layered one stamp on another after I coloured it.  I used my Copic markers, and some stickles (Amber's request) to sparkle up the sides of the thongs and they matched so nicely to my sparkly Doodlebug paper background!  There was a printed sentiment with this stamp, but I chose to write it around the circle that I cut out instead.

I also used a Cardabilities sketch for the inspiration for this card - the shape of the blue sparkly paper was created by me.


  1. Sarah, you are so clever! I LOVE how you layered the flip-flop!! I just finished making a card with that same image, and the thought never even crossed my mind to do that. Love the dimension it gave the card. Very cute!

  2. Wow! What a pretty card and I love the flip flop layered but also the yellow flower!!! BEAUTIFUL!

  3. What a fun way to use the flip-flops image, Sarah! They look wonderful in 3-D! I also really like how you laid out your card, and that fun yellow flower you added. Thanks so much for playing along with us this week! Hugs, Deedee

  4. How cute is this? I love the way you've made the flip flops 3D! How cool!! What a great card. Love your blog too!

  5. what a great card, super cute! love how you popped up the flip flops

  6. LOVE that you made them 3D!!! I really like the glittery edges!
