Flip and Fold Challenge with The Stampsmith

Hello Dreamers!
Happy March!  And, as it is the first of the month, that means it is time for a new Stampsmith Challenge.  This month  we challenge you to create a project with interesting flips and folds.  To be eligible for the drawing, please use a Stampsmith stamp.  The Challenge runs thru the month of March.  For my Flip and Fold Design Team project, I used a Side Step Card design from Technique Junkies.

The stamp set I used is called "It's a Dog's Life" from The Stampsmith.  I used three images and one of the sentiments.  This what the full sheet looks like.

The base of the card looks like this.  A little bit plain, but I jazzed it up.

I stamped the images on glossy white CS with Coffee Archival ink from Ranger.    The card stock is Baja Breeze and Basic Black from Stampin' Up; Brown Linen from TPC.  The images were layered with the black and brown CS.  The image in the back was layered on a piece of CS longer than the base so that it can be seen when the card is sitting up. 

I added polka dot ribbon and gold beads for accents.  Here are some close ups of these fun images.

I hope you will take the Challenge and create your own projects with Flips, Folds, and The Stampsmith!!  I can't wait to see what you come up with!!
