SSS Rainboot Planter

When I saw Simon Says Stamp's Rainboot Planter, it went straight to the top of 
my "want" list. It was part of their April 2019 Card Kit but was sold ala carte, too.
It quickly sold out and I patiently waited for it get back in stock. And after I saw
 Debby Hughes' card the waiting became a tad unbearable.

You can imagine how quickly I tore into the package when it finally arrived.

Debby did some amazing watercoloring on her die, but I resorted to masking and 
ink distressing with daubers.

Of course I had to spatter some water over the boots (from the rain puddles) and white
embossed the sentiment on the side. Sadly, the sentiment is retired, but I wanted to have
a stacked sentiment and that happened to fit the spot.

This die is so much fun and I can't wait to use it again with other coloring medium.
You can find this exclusive die here in the Simon Says Stamp store. 

I'm entering this card in the Simon Says Stamp Flickr Challenge #121--Die-ing for 
Creativity. Thanks so much for stopping by!


  1. This is GORGEOUS!! I love the way you colored these in. This die is on my wish list!!

  2. These are a well loved, working woman's kind of boots - well-splashed to boot! [sometimes I just can't help myself. wink.] Another amazing card, my friend!

  3. Love everything about your card... the water splattered boots, the bright tulips, the white on kraft sentiment, the pretty striped foreground. It's perfect! Thanks for the inspiration.

  4. Love this fabulous card Donna! The colors are fabulous and I adore the way you inked those fun little rainboots!

    1. I love you work. Debby is a huge inspiration for me as well. I wish you had pin buttons on your site so I could save them for future inspiration. Thanks for sharing.

  5. Wow, I can feel your excitement from this card, Donna! Love the green boots! They look amazing!
