Sandal with Heel

Hi everyone! Happy Sunday – can you believe we’re a week into May already?! Wow! I created a fun sandal for our Dare 2B Artzy Girly challenge going on this month. I used one of my favorite stamp sets- Flowers for Mom, Joyful Flower dies, papers from the Fields of Joy Collection Paper Pack and Totally Black ink. Come on over and play with us for a chance to win a stamp set and ink pad of your choice! How awesome is that?! :)


I have a huge shoe fetish. Love shoes. Any kind of shoes. Well, most any kind… no stilettos or anything too high at this ripe old age – don’t need to break an ankle or a hip, lol. I made this adorable sandal to add to my paper shoe collection which you can find HERE if you’re interested in looking. I created a flip flop template several years ago which I used to make the other sandals in my collection. This sandal has a heel, however, and the others do not (template has no heel).


After cutting the sandal base from cardstock, I covered the top of the sole with a bold print paper from the Fields of Joy Collection paper pack and the straps with a more subdued print paper from the same pack, then assembled the sandal. I stamped, colored and die cut the ornamental 3-D flower and affixed it to the center of the straps.


I decided to do something a little different with this sandal, so I fashioned an impromptu heel from cardstock, attached it to the base and covered it with a striped paper from the same paper pack.


I adhered fun foam to the bottom of the sole and the heel for a more finished look. I will admit that I intended to re-create this sandal – without the heel – and when I went back to it, much later, I saw it in an entirely different perspective and LOVED it! With the heel! :D

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
