Project Supplies:

Stamps: Stampin’ Up! Cycle Celebration (item number 130273)

Card Stock: Stampin’ Up! Whisper White, Smoky Slate and Basic Black

Ink: Stampin’ Up! Cherry Cobbler, Crushed Curry, Smoky Slate, Tangerine Tango, Basic Black and Stazon Jet Black

Accessories: Stampin’ Up!  Sponges, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Sahara Sand Stampin’ Write Marker, Brayer, Piercing Tools, Essentials Hardware Clips, 1 3/8″ Circle Punch, Timeless Type Alphabet Sizzlits and Big Shot Machine

Started by Brayering Crushed Curry ink at the top of a 4″ square piece of Whisper White card stock.

Masked the paper for my sun using a 1 3/8″ circle punched from the sticky part of a post it note.  I keep a container of these circles already punch on my desk for quick masking.

Brayered Tangerine Tango ink on the top of the card stock.

Brayered Cherry Cobbler ink at the very top of the card stock.

Unmasked the sun and sponged Smoky Slate ink at the bottom of the card stock.

Stamped the bike using Stazon Jet Black ink.

Sponged Basic Black ink at the very bottom of the card stock.


Diecut from Basic Black card stock the word “Ride” using the Timeless Type Alphabet Sizzlits and the Big Shot Machine.  Note this alphabet is retired from the catalog, but you could substitute stamped letters or another die alphabet.  These letters are 1″ high.

Also colored the inside of the wheels in using a Sahara Sand marker.

Sponged Tangerine Tango ink the center of the sun.

Added a 4 1/8″ square Smoky Slate card stock panel and 2 Essentials Hardware Clips.

Added a 4.75″ square Basic Black card stock panel and a 5 1/2″ Smoky Slate card stock card base.  Pierced holes around the edge of the card base using piercing tools.

Added a bit more Sahara Sand marker to the center of the wheels.

Here is the finished card measuring 5 1/2″ square.


May your day be nothing but a smooth ride.

I’m heading out to the garden.

Until my next post. . . . . .

Huge Hugs!
