Bootiful kick up yer heels 3In my recent "4 for Him, 4 for Her" class we used this super fun Cowboy Boot from the Bootiful Occasions stamp set (pg 50 in the Stampin' Up! Catalog). 

I paired it with the BLUE RIBBON stamp set and some fun background papers... see below for full recipe of products used. (Don't you LOVE the pre-embossed Naturals Composition papers!?)


for an



 Bootiful festival of prints

We stamped the boot in Early Espresso ink on Crumb Cake cardstock, cut it out and then sponged the edges with Soft Suede ink for that real leather cowboy boot look!

It is layered onto circles and scallops... see below for sizes and paper used.


Sharon Howard figured this out in our class... this is how you can stamp this Blue Ribbon image and punch it out with the Scallop Circle punch without punching off the ribbon tails!

STEP 1: Stamp blue ribbon image and make 2 cuts with your paper snips as shown

STEP 2: Flip the 2-3/8" Scallop Circle punch upside down, and pull the "ribbons" up through the opening as shown:

STEP 3: Pull the ribbons and position so that the scallop lines up with the punch

STEP 4: Punch

STEP 5: take it out of the punch

STEP 6: Trim the ribbons by hand with your paper snips

Isn't that FANTABULOUS!!?? Thank you Sharon!

Notice in the Festival of Prints paper pack, one side looks very Christmasy and the other side has great masculine patterns... GREAT for this Cowboy card!

I don't have either of these sets, but Mr. brown just delivered the pack of DSP and I love it! We have designs for more than Christmas and hope they will continue to do this. I have long loved polka dots and plaids (my very first pair of glasses had plaid frames!)...and that is my fav of your cards. TFS!
