Winter Ice Skates

Good morning, Friends! I hope your week has started out super! Nick had soccer camp last night and it got rained out. There was lightning in the area so they decided to call it short. He was bummed but it was safer that way. On the way home we could tell that it had dumped buckets in parts of the town but at our house.... NOTHING! UGH! We really need some rain, too!!! I am hoping for some today. We will see. Right now I have a headache and I am hoping I can get rid of that so I can get some things done around here.

Today's card was one I was thinking of doing for a swap. But I decided to go in a different direction so I am posting this one now. This is a sneak peek of what will be in the upcoming Holiday mini catalog! I love this image of the ice skates from the Winter Memories stamp set. The other images are beautiful, too! For my card, I took a piece of Always Artichoke and ran it through the Big Shot with the Fancy Fan embossing folder and then rounded the corners on one end. I adhered this to a piece of River Rock and pierced a scallop border with the help of the Essentials Paper Piercing pack. This is glued to a card base of Always Artichoke. Then I added a strip of Cherry Cobbler and a snowflake that was cut from silver glimmer paper using the new snowflake die. I stamped the sentiment on a strip of Very Vanilla in Always Artichoke and flagged one end. The other end is tucked behind the snowflake. I stamped the skates onto watercolor paper with black StazOn ink and watercolored the image with various inks. Then I cut them out. I added a silver brad and popped them up onto the card. Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
