Independent Stampin'Up! Demonstrator!

Hey friends!
I've been a demonstrator with Stampin'Up! since 2011. I'm located in Bozeman, Montana, but have customers all over the country. I have a very fun and active downline called "Big Sky Stampers" and we get together in person and online to share what we love. My blog posts feature what I'm up to recently and I try to share new product information, tips and tricks and creative inspiration. You can shop from this site or find out more information about our products and becoming a demonstrator! Thanks for stopping by!

Pedal Power!

Hi Stampers!
I can't believe it is Thursday already!  I'm hosting a fun Holiday Catalog Release party next week, Tuesday, August 29th, from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. and I've been busy getting ready!  I took some time out for some classes this week and wanted to share one of the cards we made.  It features the fabulous bicycle stamp set and framelits!  They are so easy to use and have some many cute accessories!  Here's the card we made in class:

I wanted to do something special with the background, so we inked up the brick embossing folder prior to running it through the Big Shot. If you ink up the "brick" side and not the "mortar" side, you will get the right results!  I used a 1" strip of the wood grain paper for a floor and then built the bike! There are many choices, but no surprise, I chose a dog to put in my basket!

Here's another version with some retired paper:

If you love bikes, this could be a great addition to your stamping collection!  Here's a look at the stamp set so you can see all the possibilities:

It's easy to work with and between the stamps and framelits, you can create a wonderful bike-themed design!

Hope you enjoyed today's cards!  I'll be back tomorrow!
Happy Stampin',
