Greetings, Friends! It’s Sunday and that means another fun challenge from the Paper Players:
Isn’t this a great idea for a challenge? Thanks, Sandy! This is the perfect opportunity to share another fun set from The Stamps of Life:
Isn’t it FUN??? The stamp set is called bicycle2stamp and has an additional set to coordinate with called morebicycle2stamp and there is also a coordinating die set!! It’s so fun to have options! Isn’t the basket fun? It’s a separate die and is designed so you can see inside the basket! So I loaded it up with flowers!
Here is a picture of the card base and how it works. The card is called a “stand up” card for obvious reasons and is made very quickly and easily using a die called the Square Stand Up Card. It is a standard A2 card size, it’s just designed so that one side can stand up. There is even a notch to help it can stand up securely.
So, I used the die to cut my card base, and then I laid a piece of darling pattern paper from the April Card Kit over one half of the die and ran it back through the Big Shot. I snipped off the sides that fold back and was left with a perfectly sized cover for my card stock. I then used another coordinating product called For You & Thank You, it has square dies that are sized to compliment the card base! I used those to make the back drop for my sentiment…which fits perfectly inside! I just love having lots of coordinating/complimenting products! Did you notice the pretty ribbon? Also from the April Card Kit and a dream to work with!
Can you see the notch that keeps the card standing up? So awesome!! And stamping the pink bike frame within the bicycle frame was a cinch using the MISTI tool. Of course I had to add Wink of Stella to make the pink sparkle! Who wouldn’t want a sparkly pink bike? And a basket of white blooms, all sparkly as well 🙂
I have the perfect person in mind to send this to, and hope that she displays it on her desk at work and that it brings a smile to her face each time she looks at it!
