Project Supplies:

Stamps: Stampin’ Up!  Bootiful Occasions (126597)

Card Stock: Stampin’ Up! Whisper White, So Saffron, Soft Suede and Early Espresso

Ink: Stampin’ Up! Basic Black, Daffodil Delight, More Mustard and Cajun Craze, Stazon Jet Black

Accessories: Stampin’ Up! sponges, Brayer, Gold Brads, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Markers (River Rock, Crumb Cake and Soft Suede), 1 3/8″ circle punch and post it notes

Punched a 1 3/8″ circle from the sticky part of a post it note and used it to mask the card stock for my sun on a 3.75″ x 4.25″ piece of Whisper White card stock.


Brayered More Mustard ink and then Cajun Craze ink at the top of the card stock.

Removed the sun mask and then sponged Daffodil Delight ink in the sun.

Ripped scrap card stock in So Saffron, Soft Suede and Early Espresso to create my layers.

Glued the layers on the card stock and then trimmed the edges using a paper cutter.


Sponged Basic Black ink at the bottom of the card stock.

Stamped the boot twice on Whisper White card stock.

Colored the bottom with River Rock marker and the top with Crumb Cake marker.

Added Shadows using the Soft Suede marker.

Added Shadows with the Soft Suede marker on the left sides of the boots.  Cut the boots out and glued one boot down and adhered the other one on using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Added a 5.25″ square Whisper White card base, 2 Early Espresso panels, Soft Suede panel and 4 gold brads.

Here is the finished card measuring 5.25″ square.

Have a great day!
