I am sharing with you a card that I made for a swap that I signed up for where I made 20 of these cards (below) and received 20 different swaps back!
Here is my card:
I think I love this stamp set so much because it reminds me of Disney and being a kid. Below I will have all the supplies listed to make this card, just click on any of the pictures to be taken to my OnLine Store.
I also used the Stamp set In the Trees by Stampin’ Up! for the grass under the dragon. I stamped the ‘Magic stars’ in Versamark on the Black and then embossed it with Silver Embossing powder. I thought it added just that right sense of MAGIC!!
The dimensions for this card are as follows:
Bermuda Bay Base: 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″
Soft Sky: 5 1/4″ x 4″
Cherry Cobbler: 2 1/8″ x 3 7/8″, scrap for scalloped Ovals
Whisper White: 2″ 3 3/4″, scrap for Stitched Shape Oval
Basic Black 2 1/2″ x 3 1/2″
Silver Glimmer Paper: scrap for Oval
I hope this helps you if you want to recreate this card! I had a lot of fun making it!

I was perusing Pinterest seeing what I could make, and I found a Z fold card by Karen Watts and loved her scene! Of course I had to start making my own! And being me, I HAD to add to what I saw on her card AND put in my NEW stamp sets that I just got from the NEW catalog by Stampin’ Up!
I wanted to use the Bike Ride, have the bike going along the beach, and since I had a beach I HAD (again) to use High Tide for the water! High Tide is the greatest stamp set for making water! And since I was using the water I also used the grass, birds on the beach and the birds that are flying! Birds!! For those that know me everytime I use the word/stamp birds, I think of Bambi and say it like Flower said it……..BIRD! 🙂
I also wanted to pull in Seasonal Layers with their Beach Chair! That is such a fun set! Ok, I admit it…….Stampin’ Up! has waaaaaaay too many cute sets! They are fun to play with and BOY they are great for making a story!
Here is my card closed:
Here is the card partially open:
There’s the chair! And now open all the way:
I LOVE how it came out, don’t you!? Not sure what sentiment to put on, or if it needs one……what do you think? Sometimes when I send out my greeting cards, I don’t put a greeting on it, since I want to say what I want to say and let the card speak for itself! Do you ever do that?
Bermuda Bay: 4 1/4″ x 11″ scored at 8 1/4″, 1 1/2″ x 11, scored in the same places (when you put on card, the folds are opposite)
Whisper White: 5 1/4″ x 4″, 2 1/2″ x 4 (x’s 2), 5 1/4″ x 1 1/4″, 2 1/2″ x 1 1/4″ (xs 2) and scraps for stamping and chair.
I used a post it for the sun, JUST be sure and cut the circle in HALF before you sponge sun! LOL For some reason my mind couldn’t fathom that when I stamped the ocean that it would cover the circle….kind of hard when I didn’t take off the circle when I stamped the ocean OVER the circle! Let me tell you, for some reason (though I’ve done it before) it didn’t dawn on me to cut the circle in half since I was ONLY using half of it to mask the sun. Sheesh!! I’m sure I am the ONLY one that happens to!

Today the mail came and inside was my framelits for Bike Ride from Stampin’ Up! Of course I had to give it a try!
I wanted mountains in my picture so I tore some Post-It notes and stuck them to the top of my card:
I then sponged lightly Dapper Denim at the top, making the part closer to the Sticky Notes darker, and then fading the color away.
I ran the cardstock that I was using through the Big Shot with the bumpy rock thinlit under the paper, then ran it though. This gave the Cardstock the bumps! They look like rocks so I sponged over them using Soft Suede, this highlighted the rocks! I was so tickled by this! Normally you put your thinlit OVER your cardstock to cut it out, but this time I wanted the impression. Came out pretty didn’t it!?
I stamped the Bike in Fresh Fig, SU’s NEW In Color! I also stamped the basket in it! The dog’s scarf is Fresh Fig too!
Here is the card:
The thinlits I used are the bike frame, dog, basket, flowers and butterflies. Oh! And my favorite the rocks!
The butterflies are cut out of the Designer Series Paper Birthday Memories:
I LOVE this thinlit! Just cut out the butterfly and it has the antenna, wings and ALL! I HAD to add Dazzling Diamonds to make them look even prettier!
The Measurements are the normal card size with the Base being in Fresh Fig 8 1/2″ x 4 1/4″, scored at the 5 1/2″ line to make the card.
The Whisper White is 4″ x 5 1/4″ And scraps for all the cut outs! This was a really fun card to make!! I love how you can make so many different things be on the bike! Just change out your background and the stamp set can be for sooooo many different occasions!
I hope you enjoyed your visit today! I have more Blog Candy to give away on here tomorrow!! Be sure and visit so you can be in the drawing to win!
