I created my card using the GARDEN BOOTS( SSS ) stamp set. It comes with 2 different designs of boots and lots of sentimetns. There is a matching die set available which I didn’t have so I did all the cutting on the focal point and the sentiment using my scissors… the good old fashioned way! But if you grab that set too it will make your life so much easier!

  2. I love the cute rainboots with spring flowers! Sweet card design, the frame use is so interesting!

  3. This is such a cute card and beautifully created. You say you don’t like to color but you color with such ease and it’s remarkable!

  4. I don’t know what it is about rain boots with a bouquet of flowers tucked inside that makes this unusual combination so appealing, but I just love it! It makes me happy and it celebrates spring perfectly! ? Your design is simple yet so thoughtful and pretty! Anyone would be delighted to receive this card!

  5. Who doesn’t love a great pair of wellies. Beautiful colors and I love your layout! Nicely done!

  6. I’m so glad that you have a YouTube with this because the process was as beautiful watch as seeing the finished card! Thank you!

  9. LOVE the flowers in the boot! don’t know what it is about the boots, but they make the best cards. Really cute Spring card.

  10. Hi, Vicky – I love this combo of Wellies and flowers. I also appreciate your comments about coloring and being reminded to use the markers I have like yours (I don’t have all of them, but I love that they’re coordinated for me).
    This SSS release is fabulous, as usual.

  11. I really like how you offset the layers, and I look forward to giving it a try. It’s such a different look. Thanks, Vicky!

  12. Such a pretty card Vicky. Love the write yellow boot and those pretty flowers! Great design. Thanks for the inspiration!

  14. Just gorgeous! Love the different angles which add a lot of interest. The image is colored beautifully.

  15. I have trouble placing things in a “wonky” fashion, but it looks so good on your card. I like the use of the frame with the cute boot and flowers.

  16. I always find inspiration from you. I’m still having a blast with the SSS March kit. Love the design ☺

  17. Thanks for sharing this great card-so colorful and spring celebratory. This new release from Simon is terrific!

  18. I love the juxtaposition of the frame with the blue background swatch highlighting the rain boot! So creative! What a great idea! Thanks so much for sharing the inspiration!

  19. I bought a yellow glass container shaped as a pair of boots last fall as a gift… wouldnt this stamp set be cute as the gift card. So so sweet! Like the little frame idea.

  20. Wonderful card. Love the off-balance
    placements of the framing. Filling
    the boots with flowers rather than rain
    is a fun idea. thanks for sharing

  21. Love your card and have been wanting to do boots as a focal point on a card. So great to see what you did. Very beautiful. Thanks for taking the time to post
