TSOL: You Blow Me Away!

Hello! Today I want to share a card using the newly released bubblegum4me from The Stamps Of Life.  I LOVE gum, so this may be one of my favorite sets to date! Love the sentiments, too!  I used one of Stephanie's circle Flip-it dies from Sizzix to create this card.  Flip-it cards are so much fun.  I used to try to make a similiar version many moons ago using a kraft knife.  One pass through my Big Kick and voila'! Done!  You can order these through Stephanie's site and get a great discount if you are a club member.  They are also available at Hobby Lobby! I saw them there last night. :)
The first photo shows the front or closed version of the Flip-it card.  I used some glossy accents on my bubblegum balls and colored the machine with copic markers.  The patterned paper is from My Mind's Eye.
This shows the card when open.  I stamped the 5 cents in Antique Linen distress ink to create the background.  The sentiment was stamped on a punched circle of matching patterned paper.  I plan on giving this to my little sis.  She is performing in a local production of Seusical The Musical soon.  I thought this would be great to give to her with a bag of gum goodies before the show.  She could share some of her loot with the rest of the cast and her girls after the show!

Thanks for stopping by!
