Stampin’ Up! Glimmer Free Skate

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Hope you all were able to do something fun and exciting.

For today’s card I used a new set to me from the 2019 Holiday Catalog.  I couldn’t decide if I wanted it or not.  I love the set, but I had to be sure I would use it enough.  I’m really happy I decided to get it.  Here’s my card.

My sketch and colors were inspired by Colours & Sketches Challenge #345 – Double.  I didn’t have their exact colors, but they said we could use similar.  Here is their challenge.

I started by embossing a panel of Seaside Spray cardstock using the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder.  I cut the skates out using the Detailed Skates Dies and cutting Rococo Rose cardstock for the solid skate and Rose Glimmer Paper for the detailed skate.  I cut the skate blades out of a Silver Foil Sheet.

I first cut the blade off the solid skate using my Paper Snips.  I adhered the detail skate to the solid skate using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the blade to the bottom of the detailed skate using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the skates to the Seaside Spray panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals.  On a strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Free Skate Cling Stamp Set in Pretty Peacock Ink.  I made a banner of the sentiment and adhered it below the skates using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added a small bow made from the 1/4″ Seaside Spray Metallic Ribbon using a Glue Dot.

I stamped the front of the Thick Whisper White card base using the snowflake image from the Free Skate stamp set in Seaside Spray Ink.  I adhered the card front to the front of the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a Pretty Peacocok Rhinestone from the Noble Peacock Rhinestones.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Free Skate stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the snowflake image from the Free Skate stamp set in Seaside Spray Ink all around the sentiment.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the skate image from the Free Skate stamp set in Rococo Rose Ink on the envelope front and colored it in using my Rococo Rose Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the snowflake image from the Free Skate stamp set in Seaside Spray Ink on the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!
