Happy Hump Day!

I'm excited to share today's card with you.  This card is made with one of the new bundles available in the Spring Mini Catalog which launches on January 4, 2022.  I loved this set the moment I saw it, and I've heard from many other demonstrators that they love it also.  I hope you like it, too.

One of the many advantages of being a demonstrator is that we get to see what's coming before it is here!  Today's card actually has four sneak peeks on it.  The Flowering Rain Boots Bundle (Item 157691) are the obvious sneak peak, but what do you think the other three are?  

The detail on these Flower Rain Boot stamps really makes them pop off the paper when you stamp with them.  Don't the boots on the card look like they are shiny rubber Wellies?  I was amazed when I first used them and put ink to paper.  The detail on the tulips and the tulip leaves is also amazing in person.  I'm not sure the picture justifies the depth and detail these stamps create -- even the close-up!  But I think you can get the idea.

So, have you figured out what the 2nd sneak peek is?  It's the designer series paper of course!  If you love color, then this Sunshine & Rainbow Designer Series Paper is for you!

Just look at this huge pile of color and all these different designs!  And guess what!  This is another Sale-A-Bration FREEBIE choice when you order $50 of merchandize.  So between  Monday's cute Card, and today's card -- I bet I now have you up to $150 of purchases because if you are like me -- you want it all!  But no worries, once you see the new catalog, you are going to have a difficult time restraining yourself to spend ONLY $150!

The third sneak peek is not quite as obvious.  It is the embossing folder that created the Splatters behind the boots.  After all, where there are rain boots, there are usually splatters of mud or water right?  This embossing folder is part of a set of two called Stripes & Splatters (Item 157980).

And the fourth sneak peek?  Well, about the only thing left is the ribbon.  This is a new denim ribbon (Item #149590) that will be available in the new Spring Mini Catalog.  Even though it is called "denim" and it looks like "denim", it doesn't tie like "denim".  It is very soft and easy to tie which is always a plus for any ribbon, right?

This card came together very quickly because of the coordinating dies.  Every image in this stamp set has a coordinating die so no fussy cutting needed this time!  And, of course, using designer series paper for the background always speeds the creative process along because you can use the paper for your color inspiration.  The rainbow paper made it easy to choose, Granny Apple Green, Misty Moonlight, and Mango Melody.  What do you think?

I decided to leave the front of my card sentiment free!  I liked how it looked with the focus being on the boot bouquet.  So, I left the sentiment for the inside only.

I decided to carryover the background design of the card front to the inside by duplicating it in a small strip on the left.

So, I'm curious what you think about this Flowering Rain Boots Bundle?  I guarantee that you will be seeing it again!

Although I'm sure you could duplicate this card easily without a tutorial, I have one available at this link if you would like it.

I've already told you about 4 of the sneak peek products used to create this card.  The rest of the current products that I used are shown below.
