Holiday Swap with Friends - Free Skate

Hi Crafty Friends! 

I hope you're having a wonderful week!! 

Today I'm sharing some projects I made for a Holiday Bundle swap I participated in with some of my fellow Luv 2 Stamp crafty friends! 

We each made three projects to share with each other and I got to play with the new Free Skate Bundle



This bundle was so fun! As soon as I saw it in the new Holiday Catalog I saw roller skates. That probably dates me a bit, huh?! Some of my best childhood memories are of spending Friday nights at the local roller rink with my friends and sometimes my cousins. 

I also thought this project would be a super fun birthday card for one of my dear friends. I was right because she absolutely loved it! 





I used Bermuda Bay for my base and added a Black mat and a Whisper White mat. I stamped my skates on Melon Mambo and cut off the blades so I could add Bermuda Bay wheels that I made with a circle punch. I drew the centers with a black marker and then added Wink of Stella to give them that 90's shimmer! 

I even added our new Puff Paint to the lace holes and bow to give it dimension. This card was so fun to make!





My second card is glimmer to the max. The detailed skate die is just gorgeous and the Sparkle Glimmer Paper was the perfect touch!





I used this year's new In-Color, Seaside Spray, for the card base and mat and also added the new Metallic Ribbon. This card is icy perfection! 





My third project is a little more subtle. I love the ombre of Pretty Peacock, Bermuda Bay and Coastal Cabana so I went with a watercolor wash for the background. I was really trying to pull off a #simplestamping project!  What do you think? Does this count?


My card base is Pretty Peacock with a Bermuda Bay mat and our new Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper. 

These colors just make my heart soar!
