Pedal Pusher - 3 ways

This is a super quick post today. I wanted to show you 3 super quick cards using one of the free items in the Sale-a-bration catalogue - the Pedal Pusher stamp set.

This is such a versatile set that can be used for many different occasions. It works well with the Beautiful Ride stamp set here. I've also used a piece of Botanical Gardens Vellum that you can get free if you spend $90. Being photopolymer means that it is so easy to line up the images. So easy to make 2 little birds kiss!

Add a balloon from the Balloon Builders set for a simple unisex card. The swoosh from the Sheltering Tree stamp set works really well for the land. Fussy cutting the bike adds some depth.

The background piece on this card is from the free pack of Wildflower Fields DSP. I have used Stampin' Write markers in the colours in it to colour the images. See my post from yesterday for more tips on using this stamp set.

I'm here for you... with JAI #304

  Check out the great inspiration photo for the challenge at Just Add Ink this week.

When I saw this photo I immediately thought of balloons in bright colours. I stamped and punched a large and small balloon of each colour (see list below) then added a layer of Crystal Effects over the top. The Balloon Bouquet punch and Balloon Builders stamp set work so well together and make cards like this super quick to whip up.

The balloons needed to be attached to something - so why not the bike from the free Pedal Pushers stamp set? Even though I still love Crumb Cake I think I may have a new love - Kraft cardstock! It works so well with the Shine On DSP and is a breeze to stamp and colour on.

Here are a few tips for making this card:
  1. Cut around the tops of the clouds and let hang over the top of the card.
  2. Place your card over your envelope when assembling. That will give you a guide as to how much you can overhang elements.
  3. For a stainless steel look on the bike frame colour with a Smokey Slate Stampin' Write Marker and then go over with the Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush.
  4. Use a white gel pen for details such as the seat and handles.
  5. Use the swoosh stamp from the Sheltering Tree stamp set for a shadow on the ground. Crumb Cake ink works well.
  6. Little elements that are meant to go in the basket (like the flowers) also work well by themselves.
  7. Use double layers of Stampin' Dimensionals on some balloons to give depth.

With only have 2 days left to earn free products in the Sale-a-bration catalogue I thought I'd show you a card using one of the versatile sets you can get if you spend $90.
