Have you heard about the great My Paper Pumpkin deal going on until August 31st? If you haven't already signed up, you can sign up for My Paper Pumpkin by August 31st and get the first two kits (delivered in mid-September & mid-October) for only $10 per month plus tax. The first kit has two great stamps, a Gray Stampin' Spot, the D clear block and supplies for 4 cute cards. For TEN DOLLARS? Why haven't you signed up yet??? After your two month special is up, you can either continue on at $19.95 a month or you can defer or cancel.
For those that have, this was the kit we received as existing members for August. I love the bike and banner stamps - both very trendy - and love that the Stampin' Spots included Baked Brown Sugar since it's a great color to distress with.
The kits are designed to be put together in 30 minutes or less. If you deviate from the instructions, it can take as long as your creative mind would like to take. I always try to come up with some non-standard projects you can make with minimal outside supplies.
I tried to do a technique on my first card and it destroyed it. So I decided to use that messed up card as a scrap paper where I could stamp and punch out wheels and circles.
This first card has the two wheels punched out with a 3/4 circle punch. The banner was curled with a bone folder and adhesive was put on the pointed end. Dimensionals were put on the middle and right side and slid under the bike tire. I also put mini silver brads into the wheels for extra depth and shine.
The next card was the technique I messed up on the first card. I stamped the bike first on the far right and then stamped it three more times moving it to the left each time. However, I was crooked on the tires so that is why the banner is strategically placed so that it's not so obvious! :) The tires and banners are on dimensionals again on this card.
This was fun. I punched out a 1 3/4 circle from the messed up card. Then I punched out a 3/4 circle where the yellow washi tape in the kit was on 3/4 of the circle. I distressed the edges and attached it to the big circle using adhesive. The banner is distressed too and elevated with dimensionals. Two mini brads are under the banner. Then I took the circle and put adhesive on the back of the circle. I worked the Baked Brown Sugar Ruffled Ribbon around the circle for extra dimension. Then I put the whole cluster on the card using dimensionals.
Finally, I was a card short since I used one for my scraps. So I cut a Whisper White card and layered a piece of Whisper White on a piece of Bermuda Bay cardstock. Those two layers are on the Cherry Cobbler piece that had the banner pieces in it. I also created a cluster of triangles on the card to do a fun pattern. The saying is on the bottom is up on dimensionals.
