Tall Trees on the Bike Trail

Hello Dreamers,
How is your day going?  Well, I hope.  Doing good here.  Did my grocery shopping already this morning.  So, that means I get to goof off for a bit.  Yea!  LOL  Today, let's take a bike ride with a project made with stamps from Lost Coast Designs.

Materials List:
Stamps: Tall Trees Background and Bike Border from Lost Coast Designs
Ink: Mushroom Adirondack,Versa Fine Black
Distress Ink: Faded Jeans and Forest Moss
CS: Black; Not Quite Navy - Stampin' Up
Sheet Music Paper (or sheet music stamp would work too)
Metal disk embellishments
Ribbon Slide -Stampin' Up
Tweed Ribbon


  • Make a card from Not Quite Navy CS and add a layer of black CS
  • Stamp the Tall Trees stamp onto the sheet music with Mushroom ink
  • Stamp one of the Bikes from the Bike Border with Black ink
  • Distress with the Distress inks

  • Add the stamped piece to the card base
  • Add the silver metal embellishment
  • Wrap the tweed ribbon around the card
  • Slide the ends of the ribbon through the ribbon slide and tie in a knot

I was using the paper with sheet music as a scrap to test the Tall Trees stamp...My husband is a musician and prints lots of sheet music.  And, when it does not print correctly, he hands it to me and says, "Can you use this?".  Of course I can.  Anyway, I liked the way the trees looked on the sheet music and just went with it.  And, that is my design process for this case you were wondering.

  2. I have always loved the tandem bikes and Old time images. The music bars are a great background for the card. They suggest that music should be made for that wonderful scene. - Jim
