I loved ice skating when I was younger. I wasn’t very good but in my mind I was magnificent [ha, ha]. I think that is probably one of the reasons I was drawn to the Ski Sled Skate (SS-0360) stamp set.
The Ski Sled Skate (SS-0360) stamp set is becoming one of my favorites! I love that there are so many fun winter elements that you can use either for cards, tags or scrapbook pages. I have several folks in my social circle that have winter birthdays, I know I will be using this set to make special creations for them.
On a Whip Cream (CS-0040) piece of cardstock, I stamped the ice skates in Black Licorice (IP-0041) ink. I used our Color Burst Pencils (JM-0077) #047 and #042 to color in the heel and blade of the skate. To color in the skate boot itself, I took some of our Sparkle Silk (IP-0126) and put it on an acrylic block and then using our Small Blending Brush (TO-0097) brushed it onto the skate boot.
I took some of our Lovely Blue Liquid Color (IP-0134) and applied it to an acrylic block and the added some water using a Medium Blending Brush (TO-0098) and applied that to the bottom of the card to look like ice. I had a fine tip marker on hand that I used to lightly add a line as if it were skating marks on the ice.
The sentiment was stamped in Denim Days (IP-0010) ink and the snowflakes were stamped in Pool Play (IP-0051) ink.
I added some Sparkle Silk all over the card. Using Glue Dots (AD-0083), I adhered some Special Celebrations (AC-0115) and Blue Skies (AC-0113) sequins. [the sequins are part of the 12 Days of Deals – check it out toward the end of this post].
The panel was then added to a piece of Mirror Silver (CS-0137) before being added to a Denim Days (CS-0082) card base.
May all your hand-made creations be Inked with Kindness, Stamped with Love.
