More BOOTIFUL-ness!

I wanted to share some other BOOTIFUL creations with you!  Here are a few other cards that I made during our play dates as we like to call them!  Makes it sound youthful and it pretty much describes our time perfectly!

This card is a combination of inspiration from a few other cards ... we just picked elements from cards that we found online or wherever and went to work (I mean play!).

There is a black base for the card, and then there is a black layer 1/4" shorter each way -- on this layer we placed several circle punches from a variety of sizes filling up about 2/3rds of the layer.  We then ran it through the square lattice TIEF (textured impressions embossing folder) -- this effect is so cool it makes all those circle punches look like are melted right into this layer!  We added some flag strips (so in right now) in coordinating colors from our designer series patterned papers, stamped a greeting and punched it out, stapled it on!  Then wrap some polka dot black scallop ribbon around (never too many dots!) and finally stamped the Funky Boot in black and used the markers to color it in, trim it out and add a button tied off with some of our fabulous bakers twine and set up with dimensionals.    WHEW!

And for this next guy I decided to use the little border hearts TIEF along the top and bottom edge of the card, and it's a strip of DSP and a small scallop edge of the dotted ribbon scallop punch.  The boot was stamped in Midnight Muse ink and colored in with the markers.  Add a flower punch and a Summer Starfruit Dahlia and some coordinating ribbon and a glimmer brad!  Tah-dah!

And this card I do believe was our first card of the day.  It is basically a CASE (copy and share everything) from another talented stamper (will have to come back and edit to see if I can find who it might have originated from) and we changed it up a bit with different ribbon and I think we added the extra layer of gumball green!  This is also the same trick where the 3 layers of red/green/yellow were all mounted and then run through the Chevron TIEF for this card!  Love it!

I hope you enjoy these BOOTIFUL cards and come back again soon! 

Thanks for stopping by!
