Stamping Bella "Charlotte Loves to Shop" - Anna Griffin Fantastic Flips Cricut Cartridge

👉 When you can't find the sunshine, be the sunshine.

Hey there,

I just can't resist choosing sweet, stylish Stamping Bella images for my birthday cards.  I was excited when I realized the size of this darling shopping Uptown Girl fit perfectly on the front panel of my flip card.  I used my Cricut Explore Air to cut out the Anna Griffin Fantastic Flips card base in Design Space.

The pretty bright colors on this patterned paper guided my choice of Copics for coloring Bella.  It's always a challenge for me to limit the number of colors I use because I'm often tempted to use "every crayon in the box."  For this image, I kept it to red, blue and green to keep my image from looking too busy.  

There are so many ways to use Anna Griffin Fantastic Flip cards.  Several different elements come with the Cricut cut so it's fun to mix and match. I cut an extra card base with the designer paper so I could layer some of my panels.  I kept the front panel of my card solid for my stamped image.  I  cut this tag shape in Xpressit Copic Coloring paper on my Cricut and then stamped and colored it before attaching it to my card.   Voila, perfect fit!

 I like these flips so much because there is plenty of room for creativity!  I embellished my die cut flowers and the flowers on the dp with Elizabeth Crafts Peel and Stick gems.  And, as is my habit lately, I used gold shiny metallic card stock for a couple of my frames and my sentiment.  No card is fully decked out without some sparkly accessories! 

Here's what I used:
        Stamping Bella "Charlotte Loves to Shop" stamp
        Anna Griffin Fantastic Flips cartridge in Cricut Design Space
        Copic Markers
        Gold Metallic, white and designer cardstock
        Happy Birthday to you die
        Elizabeth Crafts Peel off Gems
        Die cut flower embellishment 

Thanks for dropping by.
Go forth and create something fabulous.
