I love making wintery type cards and I love our Inspiration Book & Catalog, it is jam packed with inspiration. Here is my attempt at replicating the creation that is shown on page 104 of the annual catalog. While it did not come out exactly like the one in the catalog, I am very pleased with how it turned out.
On a piece of Whip Cream (CS-0040) card stock I stamped the Ink Splat (AT-0108) image in Pretty Amethyst (IP-0018) ink. The Snowflake from the Snow Burst (SS-0144) stamp set was stamped in Pretty Pansy (IP-0026) ink. Using the Happy Holidays from the Sparkle Trim (SS-0495) stamp set, I stamped it in Black Licorice (IP-0041) ink. Using Easy Glide (AD-0081) this panel was adhered to a piece of Pretty Pansy (CS-0029) cardstock, that was then adhered to a piece of Pretty Amethyst (CS-0028) cardstock onto a Pretty Pansy card base.
On a scrap piece of Whip Cream cardstock, I stamped the skates that come from the Ski Sled Skate (SS-0360) stamp set [love this stamp set, so much fun] onto a piece of Whip Cream Cardstock in Black Licorice (IP-0041) ink and cut it out using our Circle Dies (DI-0039) and then stamped the little snowflake from the Poinsettia Basket (SS-0527) in Black Licorice ink as well and punched it out using a 3/4″ Circle Punch (TO-0012).
These pieces were added to the card front using Foam Squares (AD-0084 and AD-0085). Before adding the skates, I adhered some Whip Cream Thread (AC-0128) behind it. The card was finished off with some Silver Silk (IP-0090) and adhered the Special Celebrations Sequins (AC-0115) using Glue Dots (AD-0083).
I think I am going to make up a few more of these and change the greeting to make it a Winter Wishes, Happy Birthday, Thinking of You, Thank You or Just Because. I love the beauty of winter!
May all your hand-made creations be Inked with Kindness, Stamped with Love.
