Special Card for a Non-Video Monday

Every Monday that is not a major holiday I share a new video on my YouTube channel, but this week I am posting a new video on Tuesday instead as part of a fantastic Valentine's Day collaboration you are not going to want to miss! But while you waiting, I am sharing my favorite new card made with some awesome NBUS products. Don't those ice skates look so very real? They were stamped with Kitchen Sink Stamps Multi-step Figure Skates in shades of grey and black ink. I am a huge fan of Kitchen Sink Stamps because I am not any good at coloring and with their layered stamps and a series of inks, I can stamp shaded beauties like these skates. 

I am also a huge fan of Tonic Studios mirror card and the subtly textured background on this card was made with Silky Sky mirror card and an embossing folder from Stampin' Up. I die cut the frame (also out of Tonic mirror card) with a new die from Memory Box called Woodland Heart Frame and die cut the stitched circle with a Gina Marie Designs die.  Here is a look at the inside of the card:

The circle frame is from that same die set from Memory Box, the background is more mirror card embossed with a snowflake embossing folder and the perfect sentiment is from the Kitchen Sink Stamp Multi-step Figure Skates stamp set.

I am entering this card in the challenge at Scrapy Land (I used a Memory Box die.)

Be sure to stop back tomorrow to see a pocket letter full of crafty goodies you would win! And Happy Martin Luther King Day!

Two gorgeous creations, Karen!! Like you, I like to reach for my layered stamps since I don't like to color (and don't do it very well)!!

I used the skates on my card today, as well!! So I was thrilled to see yours pop up on Facebook.
