Friday Flashback: Bootiful Occasions

Happy Friday, y'all!  Today's Friday Flashback retired stamp set is Bootitful Occasions.  There are four main stamps in the stamp set and I thought for a hot second that I had actually used every stamp in the set, but the little "happy boot day" stamp has never been used.  Oh well, onward!

Each one of the four main boot stamps has an image of a boot along with a sentiment, but for this one I cut the two elements apart.  And this is one of those weird sketches from Splitcoast.

Also features Extreme Elements
If winter boots aren't your thing, perhaps a cowboy boot?

Here's what I need right now, some rain boots (a.k.a. Wellies).  I've been using my snow boots as rain boots for the past couple of weeks and they're covered in mud.  So is my basement.  Again.

Also features Make a Mitten and Snow Swirled
For this one, I just used the winter boot's sentiment with some images from other stamp sets.  See, multi-functional!

And possibly my favorite boot in the set, the witch's boot : )

The background on this card was fun (and messy) to create and involved finger-painting.  And that's the end of the flashback, so here is my new creation:

My dad asked me to make a thank you card for him that had boots on it, so this is what he got.  I stamped the boots on Thick Whisper White, sponged on Really Rust ink, then fussy-cut them and put them on an oval of Very Vanilla.  The boot on the left is popped up on Dimensionals.

I texted Dad a picture of the stamp set One Big Meaning so he could pick his particular thank you stamp and this is what he chose.  This card is large, 5x7 instead of a regular A2 card size, because that's what he wanted.  And also because everything is bigger in Texas.

Well, I'll see you tomorrow for another baby book layout, and in the meantime, cheers y'all!

Stamps:  Bootiful Occasions, One Big Meaning
Ink:  Basic Black, Really Rust, Chocolate Chip
