Biking Fun!

 Hello Everyone!

Back today with a set of fun cards I made with a bicycle theme.  I made several of the cards to send to friends.  The image was stamped with black dye ink and colored with copic markers.  I made the clouds by using a cloud dry embossing folder.  I emboss sky blue cs and hand cut the clouds.  Stamps are from Stampin Up.





Such fun projects.  I put the dog in the basket (last card) for my dog loving friend.  So glad you stopped by today.  See you soon>

Desert Fox Masculine Card

 Hello Everyone,

Wanted to share the card I made for my nephew's birthday.  I used a stamp set from Stampin' Up (Nature's Beauty).  I got out my Distress inks (for a change) and used them to create the desert like background.  I added some stars with Glitter glue.




I punched a large circle and used that as a mask to spotlight the fox.  The Fox is colored with Distress markers. 





So glad you stopped by today.  See you next time!!

 Hello Everyone!

Back today with more of my bicycle themed cards.  I had fun making the cards.  I think I spent the most time going through all my sentiment stamps to find sayings that complimented the bike or travel theme.  

The bike die is from Momenta.

Take a Ride Part 1

 Hello Everyone,

I am back after taking a little break.  Trying to get my energy back.  I have been slowly making a few cards for friends and family birthdays.  I bought this bicycle die cut in the winter.  Wanted to get it out of the package and make a few cards.  I went through all my sentiments and found some fun sayings that complimented the bike theme.

Spring Birds Return

 Hello Everyone!

Sharing a few more of my Spring cards today.  I can almost here the tweeting.

The stamps and dies are from The Greetery.  I just love the dimension the multiple stamps create.  Each bird looks like a painting.  Just vary the ink colors and you can make any kind of bird.
