I fell in love with the new Penny Black clear stamp set called “Mimi’s Love” which I picked up at the Not2ShabbyShop. I decided that I would create a flip it card with the adorable little Mimi walking in the rain being showered with love (literally it is raining hearts!) on one side and the cute fairy Mimi (from one of my other Penny Black favorites, “Mimi in Paris”) on the other side surrounded by heart flowers (which are from dollar stamps I was recently gifted by my friend Marla (YT: Marla H)).
I created the flip it card using the 4th largest oval from the Diemond Dies Oval Nesting Die Set and a slightly larger 4th largest scalloped oval from the Diemond Dies Scalloped Oval Nesting Die Set. Yes, that’s right, you don’t need a specialty die to create flip in cards. You can create them with any shaped die. The video below includes a tutorial (you can also find one HERE for a triple flip it card).
I colored in the images with the following Copic colors (the video also shows samples of coloring the skin and hair):
Skin: E50, 51 and 53 with R30 for blush
Hair: E55, 57 and 59
Purple and pink dress: BV01, 02 and 13 and RV55 and 66
Umbrella and wings of fairy: BG70, BG10 and G00, with clear Wink of Stella and Glossy Accent for shimmer and shine
Grass and leaves of flowers: YG06 and 09
Heart raindrops: RV000 and 00
Blue fairy dress and boots: B04 and 06
Purple and yellow flower in fairy’s hair: BV02, BG13 and Y35
Pink flowers: RV00, 55 and 66
I also used Wild Plum Ranger Adirondack Pigment Ink to stamp out the heart flowers, which I popped up on foam adhesive for some extra interest and dimension.

Aww I know, right?! I just have a policy of not doing swaps. There are so many crafty things I want to do, so many crafty commitments with DTs, and I try to participate as much as possible in friends’ challenges to show support for them and their channels. I had to draw the line somewhere, but when I saw your swap I was sorely tempted! 🙂 I hope it has been a wonderful success! Big hugs, Kristina
