Flip Flop Wreath for Dare 2B Artzy Spring 3D Blog Hop!


Hi everyone! Happy Friday – I hope you all had an awesome week! I know there are lots of people out there who are ready for some FUN ‘N’ SUN, so the Dare 2B Artzy design team has decided to have a Spring 3D Blog Hop! This will be a three-day hop (April 28-30) and we have a couple guest designers joining us, so get in on the fun! Come on over and hop with us for a chance to win a stamp set and ink pad of your choice!

You should have arrived here from the lovely Tasha’s blog! If you’re just visiting and want to hop along with us, head over to the Dare 2B Artzy Blog to start from the beginning! Trust me… you don’t want to miss a thing!

A winner will be randomly chosen from one of the blogs on the hop, so be sure to follow each blog and leave comments along the way to increase your chance of winning! You have until 7:00 PM CST on Sunday, April 30th, when the hop will close and the winner will be posted!

I created an awesome flip flop wreath for one of my long-time besties who lives and breathes BEACH! I used the amazing Flip Flops stamp set with coordinating Flip Flop dies, and Totally Black and Paradise inks. These stamps and dies are perfect for this project!


Here is the ‘heart and soul’ of this wreath – the awesome sentiment that I stamped on plain white cardstock in Totally Black ink. I stamped the Adirondack chair in Paradise ink and cut it with the corresponding die, and affixed it to the left of the sentiment. I then angled the sentiment panel in the bottom of the wreath opening for a little interest.


Every wreath needs a bow so I added my signature big bow with a starfish charm in the center. ;)


The next several photos show all the embellished flip flops (eight pairs in all). I randomly placed flowers, sea glass, star fish charms, heart gemstones and flat-back pearls all over, with absolutely no kind of pattern. I’m really loving how this turned out and I sure hope Cindy likes it as much as I do! ;)

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
