Hi, everyone!  Today on The House That Stamps Built, we have a special event for you.  It is a Blog Hop to help celebrate (and promote) some special new dies that Repeat Impressions is releasing.  Repeat Impressions is know for Flip Cards and these new dies are for creating the flip cards without having to do all the measuring!  Yippee because I hate measuring!!!    There are two sets of dies being released: this scalloped set and a stitched set.  Both are fabulous.  You can view and purchase the dies here.  You can view and purchase all the flip stamp sets here.  During the blog hop we will be giving away two sets of dies, one scalloped set and one stitched set.  All you have to do to be entered into the drawing is comment!  Between The House That Stamps Built blog and each of the Design Team blogs you have 9 chances to win if you comment on each blog.  If you only comment on 3 of the blogs you get 3 chances to win, etc.  You have until 5 pm Eatern Time to comment.  The winners will be announced on The House blog and the Facebook page on Monday the 27th. And without further ado, here is my card:

The rest of the DT is showcasing these dies in a vertical arrangement, but I saw a tutorial on YouTube  that showed this horizontal arrangement and I had to give it a try.  I also wanted to show that there is more than one way to use these awesome dies.  Just a warning: there will be a bunch of pictures in this post.  To begin the flipping process, you pull on the ribbon and the panels begin to flip one by one.  It's pretty cool.

You can see that the top panel has flipped to the left and the second panel is showing.  You can also see a hidden sentiment has started to appear.  The next photo shows the third panel.

And here is the final panel with the bear finishing up his hug.

And here is another look, sort of an action shot:
To finish off my inspiration for you, he is the inside--a sneak peek of a new sentiment set that will be released next month.  Shhh. . . Don't tell.

Now I will send you off to finish up the rest of the hop.

Heather--that's me!

Such a fabulous card! I LOVE these die sets! I know that I would make many, many more flip cards with these dies in my arsenal. I especially love the stitched set, and they are now at the top of my wish list.

Great job on the Hugs flip card, Heather! It is fun to mix things up once in awhile and turn the card on it's side. I don't do that often enough. Thanks for the sweet reminder. Love your pastel color combination and all the extra layers and embellishments. You rock!
