Spring Bike Ride with Lost Coast Design

Hi Dreamers!
We are really having nice  Spring weather this weekend!  Got out for a nice walk in the afternoon and ran some errands later.  The temps got up into the high 50's!  So, seems like Spring is on the way!   So, lets take a bike ride today in Dreamland.  Today's project was made with a Lost Coast Design stamp called Bikes Border and measures 8" long.

This is a long narrow card that incorporates shadow stamping and heat embossing.

  • Cover an acrylic block with Tan pigment ink (All inks from A Muse Studios) and stamp onto white CS
  • Heat set the ink
  • Ink the Bike Border with brown pigment ink and stamp over the shadow stamping.
  • Heat emboss with clear embossing powder

  • Layer with black CS 
  • Tie black ribbon around a Kraft card base 
  • Add a piece of polka dot DP from Canvas Corp.
  • Add the stamped bikes.

And, how about a few super fun challenges for my embossed bike ride card?!!

Love to Scrap: emboss it

I will taking the day off tomorrow to enjoy the Easter Holiday with my family.  My brother is making dinner.   Not to worry!  He is a good cook.  So, I will just enjoy getting together with everyone and celebrating the Resurrection of our Lord!    Hope your weekend is good and filled with the blessing of Easter!  Love ya.
