So for my card I knew I wanted to use the Blue Skies paper pack. The colors and patterns are all so bright and pretty! There is also a coordinating cardstock pack and those papers have a glossy design on them!
The flowers were stamped with Intense Black ink. I use this anytime I am doing a "wet" method of coloring an image so the black doesn't bleed. Here I used our TriBlend Markers which have 3 shades of the color in the same barrel giving you easy blending options. Once colored I fussy cut because I just couldn't wait long enough for the coordinating Thin Cut dies to be ready. They're ready now though! The colors I used were Dark Red, Light Yellow, Light Green, Dull Green, Green Turquoise.
Once the pieces were assemble according to the sketch I added dots of Stickles on some of the flower centers and around the edges. The top sentiment is popped up a bit with some Thin 3D Foam Tape. I used some White Daisy and Sapphire cardstock, too. The partial circle was cut with Cricut using their basic shapes. HINT: you can click on the Cricut icon in the upper right to go to everything Cricut! You'll have access to ALL of our Close To My Heart collections, too, both current AND retired!

This adorable stamp set is great on it's own or with coordinating Thin Cut dies. Stamp those boots on solid or pattern paper or use the images to make your own patterns on the boots! This time I used the floral bouquet because it is so pretty it can stand on it's own.
The Blue Skies Collection was designed for National Scrapbooking Month (may) but they are still available! There are many options in bundles or you can get items individually.
On the Coordinating Cardstock there is a subtle glossy pattern on one side. It really adds a lot to your project to see that touch of gloss.
