Its time for Splitcoaststampers' CLEAN AND SIMPLE CHALLENGE #100. The theme is "KISSING". You can view an SCS tutorial HERE.

I am happy to be a GUEST DESIGNER this week for this challenge.

I used the brand new release BABY BUNDLE from CLEAR DOLLAR STAMPS.

WHAT I DID! I stamped my sentiment repeatedly to get my partial background. Then I stamped the booties with Hot Cocoa on top of the sentiments so that the laces would show up above them on the white background. Then on separate Cottonball White CS I stamped my booties in Lime Juice then before stamping I did the kissing technique by taking the little flower background stamp in this set and stamped it in Hot Cocoa and stamped it directly to the stamp inked in Lime Juice. Then I stamped it on the white...I did this two times. I then cut out two full booties without the laces sponged them with Tim Holtz Distress Ink Walnut Stain and adhered them to the booties on the front panel. Then I cut out only the fronts of the green booties, sponged them then popped them up with dimensional foam tape to the booties on the card. I popped up the white panel to the card. Done.
