The Bootiful Occasions stamp set was the FIRST on my MUST HAVE list…it grabbed my attention right away in the new catalog and I couldn't wait to get it. The little rubber boots are TOO cute, and I love the Halloween and Christmas ones! Even the western boot will be useful for manly cards!
I grabbed my colors from the Floral District Designer Paper…Tangerine Tango and Melon Mambo…puts me in mind of last year's wedding! lol! Anyway…the base of the card is Melon Mambo. I layered on Whisper White that I ran thru the Big Shot with the Chevron Impressions Folder (LOVE it!) I put the Designer Paper strip across the bottom of the Tangering Tango cardstock, then added the new White 1/4 Stitched RIbbon to hide the seam. I punched a 2 1/2" Circle of Whisper White. I stamped the boot in Basic Black, then colored it with Melon Mambo and Tangerine Tango Stampin' Write Markers. I stamped Happy Bootday in Basic Black on the 2 1/2" circle. They are all popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals.
For accents, I used the Scallop Border Punch with Melon Mambo cardstock to go under the Tangerine Tango cardstock along the top. Finally I added a Regals Cajun Craze button tied with White Bakers Twine.
I love all the bright colors! Make sure to check out what the rest of the Challenge Team did this week over on Create with Connie and Mary! Then grab your stamps and play along! Oh…don't forget to sign up for the New Catalog Edition while you are there!
