  • Real Read
  • Berry Burst
  • Peekaboo Peach
  • Lemon Lime Twist

Colour Your World International Blog Hop - Floral Phrases by Stampin' Up! www.stampstodiefor.com 2

I used the Stampin' Up! Many Marvelous Markers to color the stamp.  The flower is from the Floral Phrases stamp set and is a blend of colors starting with the Peekaboo Peach in the center, followed by Berry Burst and a fine line of Real Red on the edges of the flower.   The leaves are colored with the Lemon Lime Twist. 

I love the ombre ribbon and used the Lemon Lime Twist to tie above the stamped image.  Then topped it off with the sentiment stamped in Basic Black Archival Ink on Peekaboo Peach and punched out with the 1-1/4" Circle Punch and attached with a dimensional.

  • Card Base: Whisper White 4-1/4" x 11"

Sunday Sketches SS046 Bike Rde stamp set and Build a Bike Framelits by Stampin' Up! www.stampstodiefor-horz

Today's card sketch markes 46 weeks of Sunday Sketches.  It is fun to create a card and sketch to share with you each week.  Have you found the sketches helpful to get your creativity going?

Bike Ride Stamp Set and Build a Bike Framelits by Stampin' Up!


The Bike Ride stamp set with it's coordinating framelits was top on my list of have to haves this year,  I "needed it", okay wanted it.  Do you ever try to justify why you need a stamp set?  

You would think after almost 19+ years of stamping I would have everything I "needed" LOL.  But every year Stampin' Up! comes up with more amazing stamp sets with coordinating framelits.  I love when I don't have to fussy cut!

I saw on Pinterest a card made with the bike partly cut off and thought it was a neat concept so recreated it on my card.  The bike basket I cut out with one of the framelits from the Build a Bike set using silver foil paper so it almost looks like a real metal basket.

The patterned paper is from the Pick a Pattern Designer Series Paper package.  It has a great variety of designs, color and can be used for some many of your upcoming stamping projects.

Border Buddy Saturday - Carols of Christmas Bundle - FREE CARDS

It's Border Buddy Saturday and it's Alison here today!

Good news....you can purchase these in August in a Early Release offer!

Carols of Christmas BB 2 www.stampcrazywithalison.ca

Today I'm featuring one of the cards in our Border Buddy Free Card August offering.  Each month we pick a Suite of products and create a PDF of instructions (including pictures and measurements) for 8 cards! Then we send those out FREE to our customers who place ANY SIZE order through our online stores.  It gets better....when you order $50 or more we mail you two of the cards by snail mail! Imagine getting two beautiful cards in the mail - sure beats bills.

BB Carols of Christmas 3 www.stampcrazywithalison.ca

When I first saw the Holiday Catalogue I fell in love with the black and white colour theme with some of the Designer Series Paper and other embellishments.    I created the two colour holly and berry image by using my Stampin' Write markers directly on the rubber and then stamped on the cardstock.  This stamp has a matching framelit if you want to cut it out and pop it up.

The Merry Music Specialty Designer Series Paper is my favourite and features the actual music from some of our favourite Christmas Carols including Deck the Halls, Silent Night and Jingle Bells.

Here are some "sneak peeks" of the cards from this month's free tutorial.

Just in CASE - A New Adventure

BB JUST IN CASE
Bike Ride stamp set by Stampin' Up! www.stampstodiefor.com 2

Today's Just in CASE card is stamped using the Bike Ride stamp set and cut out with the coordinating Bike Builder Framelits and Big Shot.  

When the catalog first came out this bundle was top on my personal wish list.  I have stamps that I buy because they are a good business investment and stamps that I absolutely LOVE just for me.

Remember the Lama set from last years Annual Catalog absolutely a LOVE stamp set, not the biggest seller but totally on my happy ever after list.  

Bike Ride Stamp Set and Build a Bike Framelits by Stampin' Up!

I love everything about the Bike Ride stamp set with it's coordinating Build a Bike Framelits.

Stamping with this set brings back so many happy memories of my very first new bike.  I was about 10 years old and in the 4th grade.  My bike was the metallic color of the streamers on my card (Berry Burst).   It was a Schwinn bicycle which was the Cadillac in bikes in the 60's.

While I changed up the stamp set and the twine,  I kept all the colors the same.  See how just changing the stamp set gives the card a totally different look. 

What memories does the Bike Ride stamp set bring back to you today?
