"Flippin Eke"

Hi Blogland. How's it going? For a moment there I thought Spring had sprung.. The sun is coming up earlier in the mornings and staying just that little bit longer in the afternoons.. And then wooossshhh, back to the rain today...Joy!! Still, life goes on..
I got the chance to play with some new stamps today..
La Pashe have developed their range of products featuring the "Flippin" characters to now included 8 of their best selling characters in both "Flippin Men" & "Flippin Women" as clear stamps.... Pro Markers & Copics at the ready for a colouring frenzy..The weather today is pretty apt for this card I think.. wet, wet, wet!!!Firstly I stamped the Bath time image onto White card stock using Tuxedo Black Momento Ink and then coloured the image in using a selection of Copic pens, sorry I didn't note down which colours I used... tut, tut.. I Know..Then using the large classic scalloped circle Nestabilitie I cut around the image and also cut a piece from some Silver card, layering them together, but slightly off setting them.I love this sentiment which comes with the set. Rub a dub dub, I'm off to the pub! Couldn't be more apt for me if it tried.. Again this was stamped onto some White card and matted with some of the Silver card..I had some bubble effect paper I have had my eye of for a while and thought that this would work pretty well with the Bath time image.. The problem was taking a picture of it, the whole sheets actually looks like the bubbles at the top right (White), not Grey like the ones in the bottom left...Must get myself onto a photography course!!!
So, on a roll I started a few more images:Flippin Cheers...Flippin Peace... This is a play on the Flippin Peace Christmas card I did last year..And finally Flippin D.I.YI used the Cuttlebug Embossing Folder called Wen's Window, although I'm going to change the name to Wen's Door because that's what I used it as..I applied some Peel Off Crosses as Hinges and a small Peel Off circle as a door knob.This was mounted onto some complementary Green card stock and the D.I.Y'er in turn was mounted onto that..So, now just have to get the rest of the set of Flippin Men done and then start on the Flippin Women...
Thanks for checking us out.
See you soon


  1. the images are really cute....they made me laugh and i love your coloring. do you mind tell a bit more about the "chrome" silver cardstock? it's really nice.

  2. Eeeee ooop Andy, these are bloomin' luverly! I think these will be even more appealing than the decoupage, but then I'm a stamper at heart and to be honest would find these more usable than the originals.

    Keep'em coming, my inspo has taken a bit of a dive lately and we neeed your lovely projects to keep us going.

    See y'all soon.

  3. Your card ideas are fab as usual Andy but I'm sorry, I just can't warm to the flippin range. I love your colouring in, just don't like the images (something about Mr Flippin in particular...**shudder**).

    Would love to see some more card ideas using images like the little golfer you used in class.

    Toni :o)

  4. I love the flippin men/women stuff! It always makes me giggle. I must say I like your door, with the big Keep Out sign on it the best :) That was just so funny :) I can imagin the DIY flippin man have a right mess inthere hahaha :)
