Have you checked out the Clearance Rack, kids? New items have been added!
You can view the Clearance Rack HERE.
My swap group chose the SU Bike Ride Bundle to play with
so this is what I came up with:
I paired the bike with one of the Annual Catalog Hostess Sets called “In the City.”
What a neat set!
Notice all the cute sentiments-
Wedding, Birthday, Baby, Welcome, Thanks….
In the City offers two-step stamping with 60 stamps that can help you build a tiny home,
all the way up to an entire city if you want!
Imagine how colorful you can make it with the two-step component.
I jazzed up my bike with some silver elements- foil for the basket and handle streamers and some rhinestones on the wheels. The new Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals came in handy attaching the bike in the narrower spaces:)
So many stamps, so many sentiments…but how do you get a sentiment to say exactly what you want? I “erase” some words on one and add others from another stamp. When I saw this week’s MUSE # 34 on Monday created by Therese Calvird, I immediately thought of Home, Sweet, Home…a congrats on a new home. I also had SU Animal Talk on my crafting desk thinking of how to use it for Dynamic Duos # 69 challenge with SU Pacific Point and Old Olive. Then, it came to me- Home, Tweet, Home- enjoy your new home. I just did not ink up “chirp, chirp” and added HOME from another stamp I had on my shelves. I added a small tag like Therese did on her card and used a lot of white space- I think the Woodgrain stamped in SU Sahara Sand ink is so subtle that the white stands out although it is stamped.
SU Animal Talk is one of those “sketchy” lined designs. Even when you stamp it perfectly, it looks imperfect -notice how fuzzy the birdie is? …that’s the charm of it:)
