Frosty Winter Skaters


Yesterday marked the 200,000th visit to my blog.  Woo hoo!  Be sure to leave a comment on THIS POST to participate in my blog candy giveawayDeadline is Noon CST, Wednesday, Nov. 5. 

The Holiday Mini is simply loaded which beautiful stamps and accessories.  Frosty Day Designer Series Paper (113057) and the Winter Post (111780) skater stamp highlight today's card.  Need a Holiday Mini or Stampin' Up! Catalog?  Learn more here.

My Winter Post skaters were inked in Chocolate Chip and stamped on Whisper White card stock.  I clipped each corner with a Ticket Corner Punch (107214) and adhered the image with Stampin' Dimensionals to layers of Chocolate Chip (also clipped on the corners) and Kiwi Kiss. 

TIP:  When adding the dimensionals to the back of the skaters, I purposely left the center clear when it was mounted on the Chocolate Chip.  This left a perfect little channel for my Tangerine Tango Striped Grosgrain (111371) "scarf" to slip through.

My sketch was inspired by this charming layout from Poetic Artistry.  Tucked behind the skaters is a horizontal panel of Stampin' Up!'s Frosty Day Designer Series paper matted on Tangerine Tango card stock.  A scrumptious Frosty Day snowflake pattern (Tangerine Tango, Bashful Blue, Close to Cocoa, Kiwi Kiss) is layered on Tangerine Tango card stock and a 4.25 x 5.5 card base of Whisper White.

The Chocolate Chip sentiment is from Word Flurries Rub-Ons (111417), which includes one sheet each of Chocolate Chip and Whisper White.  It's snapped out with a 1 1/4" Circle Punch (104403) adhered with Stampin' Dimensionals to a 1 3/8" Circle (104401) of Bashful Blue, followed by a Scalloped Kiwi Kiss Circle (109043).

The PERFECT TOUCH?  These jazzy white pearls from Stampin' Up!'s Pretties Kit (109114) on the ribbon and center of the sentiment.  TIP:  The pearls are flat on the bottom and hang on with confidence when combined with Stampin' Up!'s Mini Glue dots (103683, use several for the "big boys").
