Happy Friday Saturday! (Sorry, I just realized this never posted yesterday)! I hope you've had a fabulous week!! This week over on the Sisters in Stamping blog Karla asked us to create projects featuring Sale-a-Bration products for our Fabulous Friday designs. I decided to use my new Pedal Pusher stamp set that just arrived this week in my latest order. I think this set is soooo cute! I'm longing for spring, so decided to use the very spring-y colors: cucumber crush, daffodil delight and watermelon wonder.
I haven't made a Z-fold card in a while - they're fun and super-easy, especially when you use the Stampin' Trimmer which has both a cutting and scoring blade. All you need to do is make one additional score line - the first at 5-1/2" and then another at 8-1/4" on the 11" side of the card stock. Fold the card in half at the 5-1/2" score line and fold it in the opposite direction at the other and voila - a z-fold card!
This photo is a close-up of my image - I added the basket and flowers to the front of the bicycle and then colored the image using stampin' write markers and an aqua painter. I added little bits of glimmer with the clear Wink of Stella glitter brush on the handles and pedals (kind of hard to photograph). I kept the embellishment simple - a piece of textured card stock using the Big Shot and Stylish Stripes textured impressions folder and some crushed curry baker's twine.
Here's one more view of my project... I love these colors together! Bring on Spring!! For even more ideas and inspiration featuring the Sale-a-Bration products, please be sure to hop over to the Sisters in Stamping blog to check out what the other designers created.
