Kick Up Yer Heels for Tuesday!

What could be prettier than a pop of rich colors, a simple image and a wee bit of bling?  This kickin’ little card for my “20-something” niece was inspired by my tip for today and #6 in my Top 10 Ways to Get Your Stampin’ Mojo GoingNATURE!


  • The ombr? effect of these color shades (Pumpkin Pie, Tangerine Tango, Real Red) represents an Arizona sunset–one of the most awe inspirating works of nature I get to witness from my home in Tucson.

  • I snipped the Real Red boot (Bootiful Occasions), popped it up on Stampin’ Dimensionals and added Rhinestone Basic Jewels for added pizzazz.  As an aside, I have a pair of red cowgirl boots that I bought 15 years ago!  Love ’em with jeans!
  • A little “surgery” was performed to separate the boot and sentiment into two stamps.  Makes it much easier to freely stamp the sentiment!
