Hop on Your Bike

Hello and a warm welcome. Global Design Project #GDP125 is a colour challenge.

I can honestly say that I did struggle with this one but I decided to make a little easel greeting card for my eldest Granddaughter who commences her first year of University next week. 
The pushbike is to symbolise her passage away from childhood toys and her embarkment into a new adult world.

I felt the sentiment "Good Things Are Going to Happen", from the stamp set You've Got This were appropriate words of encouragement to ease her feelings of apprehension as she starts this next phase of her journey.

Having completed this card I then decided to challenge myself by using the same stamp set Bike Ride  and the GDP challenge colours again.

  By swapping around the colours Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight and Dapper Denim and the various images in the Bike Ride stamp set I have created 3 different cards which could be given to a male or female for any number of occasions.

Just a couple of little hints for you today. 

I have used Stampin' Ups! Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets to adhere the tiny pieces when constructing the bikes finding this much easier and less messy than using the liquid adhesives. I stamped the images onto a scrap piece of whisper white cardstock then adhered it to a Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet.  I die cut the images using my Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine then simply peeled off the backing and built my bike. No smudges or sticky fingers. Magic!

Also the pebbles are an embossing die which is included in the Build a Bike Framelits Dies. I found I needed to add an extra piece of cardstock to the sandwich layer as a shim to obtain a well embossed image. I embossed onto whisper white cardstock however a thicker cardstock may not need the shim.

Don't forget Sale-A-Bration is still continuing and Stampin' Up! have added even more gorgeous products which you can earn for FREE! All available from my Online store.

   Thank you for visiting me today I hope you have gained some inspiration. Below I have included the link to the products I have used for your convenience.
Happy Stamping.
