…is NOT Bootiful Occasions! Are you surprised? With Cheryl being from Texas and all… But, this stamp set is definitely on Cheryl's top 5 list of favorite new stamps!
Isn't this a fun card? It looks like bright summer. And Cheryl didn't even choose the Texas Cowboy Boot for the first card made from Bootfiul Occasions stamp set! (Wood 126595 Clear 126597) Not to worry though – I guarantee you will be seeing the Texas boot and the witches boot on upcoming cards. This stamp set just makes you laugh when look at it. And the bright, bright colors just add to the fun. Don't ya just love it?
We stamped the boot with the Staz On Ink Pad (101406) and set it aside to dry as the ink pad was newly inked right before class. We used the 2 1/2" circle punch (120906) to cut out the Whisper White Card Stock circle. Did you notice the sponging on the edges? We used Tangerine Tango Classic Ink Pad (126946). The boot was colored with Stampin' Write markers – Melon Mambo and Tangerine Tango (available as a set 119702) and cut out with Paper Snips (103579). We laid the boot on the circle so we would know where to place the "Happy Boot Day". This saying is not just for birthdays. Wouldn't that make a fun saying when someone gets a cast off? Or when your friend finds the perfect pair of shoes? That's always worth celebrating!
The Designer Series Paper is called Floral District (126919). For accents, we used the Scallop Border Punch (119882) with Melon Mambo Card Stock to go under the Tangerine Tango Card Stock along the top. We used Tangerine Tango for the Card Stock Base and the accent strip. The new 1/4" stitched ribbon (126877) in Whisper White hides the seam. The Whisper White Card Stock was run through the Big Shot using the new Chevron Embossing Folder (127749). We then used Dimensionals (104430) to "pop" the boot and the Happy Boot Day.
What a fun Happy Day – even if it was raining since these boots look like rain boots. Or if you are from a Dairy Farm in Wisconsin – mucking out boots! Though they are pretty nice looking boots for working in the barn.
