Bootiful Cowgirl Boot

Stamps:  Bootiful Occasions  w#131967  c#126597
Ink:  VersaMark
Baked Brown Sugar
Card Stock:  Baked Brown Sugar
Chocolate Chip
Gold Foil Sheets #132622
Big Shot:  Stars Framelits #133723
Deco Labels Framelits #130102
Woodgrain embossing folder #127821
Other:  Basics Hodgepodge Clips #133765
Gold Embossing Powder  #109129
Heat Tool #129053
Tombow Glue

1.  Cut your Baked Brown Sugar card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″.  Score and fold at 4-1/4″.  Watch this video if you need the basics on card bases.
2.  Cut your Baked Brown Sugar card front at 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″.  Get your Woodgrain embossing folder and your Baked Brown Sugar ink pad.  Rub your ink pad directly on the inside front (with the Stampin’ Up! and Sizzix logos) until it is nicely covered with ink.  Position your card front on the clean part of the embossing folder.  Close the folder and run through your Big Shot as usual.  Remove your card stock.  Admire the fun way your card stock is now colored to look more like wood!  Clean your embossing folder by running it under tap water and drying with a paper towel.  You can also spray it with Stampin’ Mist and wipe dry with a paper towel or wipe off with a baby wipe.  Attach your embossed card front to your card base with Tombow Glue.
3.  Back to the Big Shot to cut out your Framelits.  Cut the Deco Label from Chocolate Chip card stock.  To cut your Gold Foil Star you will need to put a scrap piece of card stock on top of the Gold Foil as it tends to pick up all the marks from your cutting plates if you just cut it by itself.
4.  Put a Star Clip on your Deco Label and attach it to your card front with Tombow Glue.  Attach your Gold Star with Dimensionals.
5.  Stamp your Boot on Chocolate Chip card stock using VersaMark ink.  Sprinkle with Gold Embossing Powder.  Remove excess.  Melt with Heat Tool.  Cut out with your paper snips.  Attach to your Gold Star with Dimensionals.

Happy Cowgirl Days!

Witch’s Boot Halloween Card

Fall & Halloween Card & Project IdeasI received a swap of a cute Witch’s Boot card like this at Convention.  As usual, I changed the color scheme and added some Rhinestones for Bling.  I did keep the same layout.

Piercing Tool #126189
Piercing Mat #126199 (Optional)
Essentials Paper Piercing Pack #126187 (Optional)
Paper Snips or Scissors (Optional)
Small Post-It-Notes

1.  Cut papers as listed above in Supplies.  Score and fold Pumpkin Pie card base at 4-1/4″.  Adhere Basic Black layer to card front with SNAIL.
2.  Emboss your Elegant Eggplant layer with the Spider Web embossing folder and your Big Shot.  Put SNAIL on you Basic Black layer (so you don’t flatten out your embossing) and adhere embossed Elegant Eggplant layer to Basic Black layer.
3.  Put a small Post-It-Note on your Boot stamp so it covers the lower half or your Boot and all the words are visible.  Ink your sentiment with StayzOn ink.  Remove Post-It-Note and stamp sentiment in the lower corner of your Pumpkin Pie layer.  Clean stamp.
4.  Now place your Post-It-Note over your sentiment and leave all the Boot uncovered.  Ink with  StayzOn ink.  Remove Post-It-Note and stamp on Whisper White card stock.  Punch with 2-1/2″ Circle Punch.
5.  Die cut your scallop circle to go under your Boot using the largest circle on the Perfect Pennants die and your Elegant Eggplant 3″ card stock Square.  Attach Boot image with SNAIL.  Put Dimensionals on the back of your Scallop Circle.  Do NOT remove the backings yet.
6.  Now for your Paper Stack DSP Banner.  There are TWO ways you can get the “V” in the bottom of your Banner.  First:  Use a Square Punch.  (Mine are always lopsided when I use a punch.)  Second:  Use your Piercing equipment.  Lay your banner on your Piercing Mat.  Take the Paper Piercing Template that has rows of piercing holes.  Line it up so one of the holes is in the center (7 in, if I remember correctly), and it is as high as you want your “V” to go.  Pierce a hole in that center hole.  Now use your paper snips or scissors to cut from each corner up to the center.  I like this version much better!  It does have more steps but I like the results better!  Adhere in desired position to the Pumpkin Pie layer using either SNAIL, Dimensionals, or both.
7.  Now remove the backings from the Dimensionals on your Boot layer and attach in desired position.
8.  Now for the Bling!  Attach 3 large Rhinestones to 3 of the large circles on the Boot.  Attach 1 large Rhinestone to each corner of the Elegant Eggplant layer.  Attach a strip of 5-7 Small Rhinestones to the lower corner of your Pumpkin Pie layer as desired.
9.  You now have a Fancy Witch’s Boot card to give someone for Halloween!
