Cycle Celebration!

Hi Stampers!

Have you seen the Cycle Celebration stamp set in the 2013-2014 Idea Book and Catalog?  I love this set.  It was on my first order from that catalog.  Here is a masculine birthday card that I created using that stamp set and the Birthday Basics  Designer Series Paper.  I love that the DSP coordinates with the stamp set.  It makes creating beautiful cards super easy!  You may notice that the sentiment in the stamp set is much longer than just Happy Birthday.  Using your Stampin' Write markers allows you to ink up the entire stamp, or just the parts that you want for your project.  

I used the pewter embossing powder for the bicycle.  It's my favorite embossing powder out of all the colors Stampin' Up! carries.  It's super versatile!  I then added two Bermuda Bay candy dots to the centers of the wheels to give some added diminution.

  2. That is adorable! Love how you added the candy dots to the wheels. It really makes that bike pop!

    You know I used to ride my bike 30 miles or more in one day and that was just a few years ago! I need to start doing that again.

  3. Bicycles are so popular, I'm so behind the curve on this one! Need to add a bicycle stamp to my wish list.

    Very pretty card, I love the teal brads for a pop of color.
