I am so excited to be playing along with the Baker’s Dozen today because the new stamp we are showcasing, Bikes & Trikes, is one of my concepts.  I presented the idea to Taylor quite awhile ago, so I was especially pleased when she decided to go ahead with it and handed it over to to the fabulous Emily Burger to illustrate as part of the Embracing Grace collection at TE.  I’m so tickled with how it turned out and I can hardly wait to see what each of the girls have come up with.
I have two cards to share today, because both of these ideas have been floating around in my head since before the set was even a reality.  The first card is what I consider my typical style.  Patterned papers are from the Cosmo Cricket Baby Jane 6×6 pad and I’ve paired them with Kraft cardstock and some of those luscious Prima Laraine flowers that I just can’t setp away from!
The vinatge bike was stamped with white pigment ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder onto kraft cardstock.  Then I die cut it with a Spellbinders Labels 10 die and did a little sponging inside the die.  The sentiment was stamped right onto the patterned paper and the little jewels are Queen & Co. Goosebumps…so so so sparkly! Here’s some o fthe supplies I used.
For my second card, I decided to go SUPER OLD SCHOOL.
I pulled out several things I haven’t used in eons, starting with the Fabriano notecard.  C’mon…’fess up!  How many of you have a stash of these hoarded somewhere deep in your stamp room?  They were all the rage a few years ago and truthfully I do love them.  I embossed the tandem bike with black pigment ink and clear embossining powder and then I grabbed another too-long-unused supply – my Luminarte Twinkling H2O’s.  Ok I know A LOT of you must have these little pots of goodness stashed away.  I chose 3 colors and painted them over the bike for an artsy look.  {It’s artsy, right??? LOL!}  And then I had to grab one more old school item – gingham ribbon.  There was a time when I just couldn’t keep enough black gingham ribbon on hand because I used it on everything!  I haven’t used it in quite some time, but yep…I still like it!
So there you have 2 cards with the same stamp set and similar color palettes, but totally different looks.  I hope you like Bikes & Trikes.  I think it has a ton of possibilties.  And you’ll see that you’ll have opportunities to color as well as go solid (like I did here.)  Let’s see what the Baker’s Dozen has cooked up:
I apologize for the weird formatting today – no spaces and some photos centered and some not.  Sometimes my blog acts goofy and no amount fiddling seems to fix it.   Sometimes it happily cooperates, but not today!Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you’re having a great week!
