Nichole Heady is a genius!



This card is made using Papertrey's Green Thumb set, Nichole really does know how to make stamps for stampers. Somehow, with the way that her stamp sets work, you know she has really thought about how to get the most out of one set, I have had so much fun playing with this set today, it's the first chance I have had to play with it.

This card really makes me laugh. I don't know why really, but I think it's really cute. The sentiment says "you can deal with anything if you have the right shoes", I was going to do a sentiment that says "I hope you are welly" but I didn't know if Americans would get it. We call this type of boots, wellies in the UK (wellington boots), I will definitely use the sentiment if I send this sort of card to a friend in the UK.

I stamped each boot in Chocolate Chip, Certainly Celery and Cameo Coral. I then stamped them again on some scrap card, cut each one out and mounted each one on dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment onto scrap card, mounted it onto some dp from the SU winter mini. I then used the slot punch for the holes and threaded some American Crafts ribbon through the slots.

Love it, Alli! I would've understood the sentiment, and I think it is funnier than the one you used.

BTW, any comment for one who has never used acrylic stamps, let alone ones you have to mount and remount, as to the ease of doing so with these?
