Skating By

Welcome back! As promised, today I wanted to show you the 'boy' version of yesterdays card. This stamp set is called Skating By on page 44 of the NEW 2015-2016 Annual Catalogue. These kids are too cute! And, so much fun to color too!

I started this card off with some Island Indigo cardstock.  I stamped the boy on Whisper White using Tuxedo Black ink and then colored him using the same technique I showed you here. I used Old Olive, Island Indigo, Chocolate Chip and Tangelo Twist Stampin' Write markers. 

I cut the stamped and colored piece with the Circles Collection die- allowing the bottom where the skateboard is to not be cut by leaving it off the edge of the Big Shot cutting pad. I finished off the cut by hand, using Paper Snips to cut around the skateboard. Then I used the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set to add some fun splashes of color around him.

Then I cut out two more circles using Tangelo Twist cardstock. On the smaller circle, I stamped the sentiment in Whisper White ink. Before stamping it though, I curved the photopolymer stamp as I mounted it on the acrylic block. This is one of the advantages to photopolymer stamps- you can manipulate them to curve the way you want on the block for stamping 🙂  Then on this piece, I added more texture with the Gorgeous Grunge stamps. 

Before adhering everything to the card base, I punched some little banners using the Banner punch and Old Olive cardstock. 

Here are the supplies I used:
