I want to ride my bicycle....

Here's a couple of cards I've made using this month's club stamp set from Little Claire, available here.


My first card is coloured with promarkers, papers are Echo Park 'walk in the park'.  Bicycle sentiment is from the same set, and the circle sentiment is from a set that will be released soon from Little Claire.


And this one is completely different!  The bicycle looks fab just stamped with no colouring... in fact I think I prefer it like this.  A very simple one layer card, with the bicycle stamped in Rich Cocoa memento ink onto pale blue hammer textured card.  The sentiment is also from this month's set.

I'm entering my cards for the following challenges:
I've had a little mishap with my car... pulled the switch to set the windscreen wash going, and it snapped off!  So my front wipers won't work at all, and my rear wiper won't switch off and is wiping constantly - oops!  Wonder how much that'll cost to sort out...

Hi Lisa, your cards are both fab! I would have a difficult job to pick which I like better. I am trying stamping with coloured ink, but must also try browns as well - it just looks so classy! Your Oilivia and Archie card made me go 'awww', by the way! Sarah

Susan Raihala said...

Your OLW card is absolutely, totally perfect! LOVE the textured cardstock, which adds just the right amount of interest. Thanks for playing the OLW.

And hope the car repair isn't too costly. It might eat into your craft budget, and we can't have that!

Jenny said...

Both cards are fab but I especially love your OLW card, such a fab idea and the off the edge stamping is great:)
