I used the Stampin’ Up! Apple of My Eye, Beautiful Ride and Pedal Pusher (Sale-a-bration exclusive) stamp sets to create my card for the Happy Stampers blog hop. We’ve got a sketch challenge to play along with this week and this is what I created:
Here is the sketch that we’re using this week:
I started by adhering a panel from the It’s My Party DSP Stack to a panel of Mint Macaron card stock with SNAIL, then to a Melon Mambo card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I adhered a narrow panel from the It’s My Party DSP Stack to a narrow panel of Mint Macaron card stock and then to the card front with SNAIL. Then I stamped the bike image from the Pedal Pusher photopolymer stamp set (Sale-a-bration item) in VersaMark Ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock, sprinkled it with Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed it. I stamped the flag and basket images from the Pedal Pusher stamp set with the bike and heat embossed them with Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder as well.
I stamped the little dog image from the Beautiful Ride photopolymer stamp set in VersaMark Ink in the basket and heat embossed it with Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder. I colored the stamped images with Mint Macaron, Melon Mambo, Crushed Curry, Sahara Sand, Smoky Slate and Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Markers, then used a Blender Pen to add a little Mint Macaron ink under the bike wheels. I adhered the stamped panel to a panel of Mint Macaron card stock and to the card front with SNAIL.
I stamped the sentiment from the Apple of My Eye photopolymer stamp set in Mint Macaron ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock, punched it out with the 1-3/4″ Circle Punch and adhered it with SNAIL to a circle that I’d cut from Mint Macaron card stock with a Circles Collection Framelits die. I trimmed the edge off the layered circles and adhered them to the card front with SNAIL. I pulled apart a strand of the Baker’s Twine Combo Pack, pulled the Mint Macaron threads through a Melon Mambo button from the Brights Designer Buttons Pack, tied a bow and adhered it with a Glue Dot to finish the card front.
I adhered a strip of the It’s My Party DSP Stack to a Whisper White panel inside the card.

I love the little dog in the basket! So cute!
Thanks Heather! 🙂
Hi Amy, I have received this email twice, can u please check details for me. Tks Del Logan
Sorry about that, WordPress handles the emails for me. I’ll check to see what the problem was. Hopefully it won’t happen again.
This is adorable! You know me I love a mash up of several stamp sets together…perfect passenger!
Thanks Linda! I couldn’t wait to put that little doggy in the basket…when I first saw the Pedal Pusher stamp set, I was so hoping he would fit and he does! 🙂
It’s the extra things you do that make your cards so special–like embossing all the parts of the bicycle and adding those smudges under the tires. This card sure makes me smile! TFS
Thanks so much Susan! 🙂
