I had a BOOTIFUL play date!

I hope you are having a great weekend and getting to do some fun, creative things! One of my very dear friends Elizabeth called the other day and said, hey do you wanna come over and play?  Well, I said absolutely, see you in an hour ... I brought the stamp set BOOTIFUL OCCASIONS and some designer series papers, and off we went.

Here's what we did!  I may spread it out over a few days but I will show you all of the projects because it was super fun!  We had each pulled some favorites from the web to get our own creative juices going, sometimes its fun to CASE (Copy And Share/Steal Everything) but more times, we start with a layout or color combination or just have a certain piece of the project that you like ...  so, thanks to the others that share their ideas online and I hope you can find some inspiration from our play date too!

Here's one of our personal favorite cards of the day!  It's not the first one we made, but we definitely were in our groove by the time we came to using the cowboy boot!  Here's the card and another angel so you can see the depth, we just kept adding more and more until we finally felt like it was complete!  We LOVE it, so I hope you do too!

We used the woodgrain textured embossing folder on the crumb cake layer, the red scallop was done using the large scallop edgelit, and the red polka dot lollie layer was created using the rosette die, the blue scallop ribbon layer was created using the BLUE RIBBON stamp set, and we added some Midnight Muse ribbon to the ribbon tails to give it just a bit more texture.  We stamped the boot and just colored in pieces and hand cut it out and added some twine to give us a lasso to complete the cowboy look.  

Thanks for stopping by and come back soon!
