Bike Ride Stamp Set and Build a Bike Framelits by Stampin' Up!


The Bike Ride stamp set with it's coordinating framelits was top on my list of have to haves this year,  I "needed it", okay wanted it.  Do you ever try to justify why you need a stamp set?  

You would think after almost 19+ years of stamping I would have everything I "needed" LOL.  But every year Stampin' Up! comes up with more amazing stamp sets with coordinating framelits.  I love when I don't have to fussy cut!

Pick a Pattern Paper and Bike Ride stamp set by Stampin' Up! www.stampstodiefor.com 2
I saw on Pinterest a card made with the bike partly cut off and thought it was a neat concept so recreated it on my card.  The bike basket I cut out with one of the framelits from the Build a Bike set using silver foil paper so it almost looks like a real metal basket.

Pick a Pattern Paper by Stampin' Up! www.stampstodiefor.com 2

The patterned paper is from the Pick a Pattern Designer Series Paper package.  It has a great variety of designs, color and can be used for some many of your upcoming stamping projects.

Sunday Sketches SS04 -
Swirly Bird stamp set by Stampin' Up!


Swirly Bird & Happy Birthday Gorgeous Stamp Sets & Swirly Scribbles Thinlits by Stampin' Up! www.stampstodiefor.com

Last year the Swirly Bird Stamp Set was one of the top sellers when the catalog first came out.  The endless samples on pinterest where a good part of why everyone loves this set.  Because it is filled with lots of this and that shapes it can be a little overwhelming but don't let that stop you from taking advantage of this amazing set.

Sunday Sketches Series SS044 Swirly Bird Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! by www.stampstodiefor-horz

Each Sunday I create a card sketch and stamp a card using the card template.  This week was a fun sketch pretty clean and simple.  The daisy's from the Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper is one of my favorite this year. I love Daisies!


Patsy Waggoner's wedding  stamps to die for
I loved daisies so much they were a main part of our wedding in 1975.  This is my one and only little sister.  She is the one who got me into stamping in the first place, so I guess I owe it all to her.  There is 10 years between us and she is a medical miracle and an answer to many years of praying as a little girl for a little shisher.  I am a strong believer in prayer and miracles. 

Tom and I cutting the cake with diasies

Our cake was made by Tom's Mom and decorated with Daisies, pictures don't do it justice.  My Sweetheart Tom and best friend will celebrate our 42 wedding anniversary in August exactly a month from today.   You will notice I didn't have daisies for my bouquet.  I have some allergies and a handful of flowers for a wedding ceremony would have resulted in a great deal of sneezing, but I would have LOVED them.


Sunday Sketches Series SS044 by www.stampstodiefor.com

Measurements for this weeks card sketch:

  • Card Base: 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" Whisper White
  • Patterned paper: 3 1/2" x 3 1/2" Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper

Sunday Sketches SS043 - Cool Treats stamp set by Stampin' Up!

It's Sunday and time for another card sketch or as some people might say template. 

Sunday Sketches Series SS043 Cool Treats Stamp SEt by Stampin' Up! www.stampstodiefor-horz
Each week I create a card sketch and then stamp a card using the sketch.  Today's sketch is a clean and simple card sketch.


Cool Treats by Stampin' Up! www.stampstodiefor.com


I choose the Cool Treats stamp set for today's card.  It seemed like the perfect stamp set for a warm summer day.  In Minnesota summers are often too short!!!  So no time to waste stamping up some cards with this fun stamp set and coordinating Frozen Treats Framelits.

 

Cool Treats by Stampin' Up! www.stampstodiefor.com 2


One of my grandchildren's favorite things about staying overnight is Ice Cream for breakfast.  After all it is a diary product right?  They love to add sprinkles and I have a cupboard full of colors and shapes. 

The sprinkles on this ice cream cone are so tiny and a bit of a challenge but I love the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets on page 203 of the catalog.  These make tiny items a breeze to adhere to your project. 

 

Stampin up multi purpose adhesvie sheets


Simply cut your cardstock in the desired size and cut the multipurpose sheet the same size.  Peel one side of the adhesive sheet off and place your cardstock on it.  Then run it through the big shot like normal with your die.  Then just peel the sprinkles as they will be self adhesive and adhere to the ice cream cone. 

 

Cool Treats by Stampin' Up! www.stampstodiefor.com 3


The cardbase is Pool Party and the ovals are Whisper White (3 1/4" tall oval) and Flirty Flamingo (3 1/2" scallop oval) ovals from the Layering Ovals Framelits.

Below is a supply list with the Stampin' Up! Products I used to make this card.

Sunday Sketches card sketch SS042

What will you be celebrating this month?  July is a quiet month for Birthday's at our house, but one can never have to my Birthday cards on hand. 

Sunday Sketches Series SS042 Happy Celebrations stamp set by Stampin' Up! www.stampstodiefor-horz

Each Sunday I create a card sketch along with a card using the sketch to share with you.  Sketches or sometimes called templates help me get a start when I am stamping a card.


Happy Celebrations Stamp Set & Celebrations Duo Embossing Folders by Stampin' Up! www.stampstodiefor.com


A really fun stamp set for celebrations is the Happy Celebrations stamp set with it's coordinating Celebrations Duo embossing folders.  I choose the Eastern Palace Designer Series Paper for the background.  It has my favorite new color Lemon Lime Twist along with Dapper Denim.

Happy Celebrations Stamp Set & Celebrations Duo Embossing Folders by Stampin' Up! www.stampstodiefor.com 3


Here I embossed or should I say debossed, the celebrate and then stamped the splatter stamp in Lemon Lime Twist over the top.  It is fun how the celebrate really pops once you stamp over it.    I added a couple of the new fun Glitter Enamel Dots.  I really like these for embellishing as they are fairly flat for easier mailing.


Happy Celebrations Stamp Set  by Stampin' Up! www.stampstodiefor.com a6

For the inside of the card I stamped the outline "HAPPY" in Dapper Denim Classic Ink and then stamped the solid "HAPPY" inside in Lemon Lime Twist Classic Ink.  This stamp set is the clear photopolymer making it so easy to line up.

Sunday Sketches SS040 - Colorful Seasons Stamp Set
by Stampin' Up!

Welcome to Sunday Sketches SSo40 by Stamps to Die For

Throughout my life I have always been in love with Adirondack Chairs.  Before pinterest I  would often find pictures in magazines and tear them out and put them in a file of things I like.  It fascinated me that often the pictures would have Adirondack chairs in them.  Some how they signify peacefulness.

So it is no surprise the Colorful Seasons Stamp Set and coordinating Seasonal Layers Thinlits was top on my Stampin' Up! pre-order.

Sunday Sketches SS039 - Weather Together Stamp Set
By Stampin' Up!

Weather Together and Wood Words Stamp Sets by Stampin Up www.stampstodiefor.com

There are many storms in life and it is always better to Weather Together when they arrive.  My Mother was a wonderful person who often reminded us that in the big scheme of life "everything is going to be okay".   When she was diagnosed with late stage ovarian cancer just 2 weeks after our father passed my brother, my sister and I were all sitting around her hospital bed.  It was a devastating blow so suddenly after our father's passing from an unexpected heart attack. 

As we began to weep my Mother reminded us that everything was going to be alright, my sister (10 years my junior) looked up at her through her tears and said "Yes I know Mom but in my little world right now it really sucks!" we all laughed.  My Mom fought a tough battle for 5 years.  That storm was weathered together not only by my family but so many amazing stamping friends from across the country!  Near and far stampers said prayers, sent cards and I felt lots of arms around me from across the miles.  

Weather Together and Wood Words Stamp Sets by Stampin Up www.stampstodiefor.com 123

While many umbrella's keep out the rain as I created this card I thought about how I would love for my umbrella to symbolize the love and support of my stamping friends.  Each flower represents the many friends who have supported me through the storms of life.  You can see my umbrella is overflowing and running off the card.  I am blessed!

This Little Piggy Stamp Set by Stampin' Up!

This card makes me happy!  I love the look of the woodgrain paper for the background.  It is from the Wood Textures Paper Stack.  The daisy paper is from the Delightful Daisy Designer Series paper.  I will need several packages of this paper for creating awesome cards this summer.

Sunday Sketches SS038 This Litttle Piggy stamp set by Stampin' Up! www.stampstodiefor.com 4

I am not sure how I lived without the Stitched Shape Framelits, I use them almost all the time if you hadn't noticed.  I stamped the pig on the Shimmery White Paper with Basic Black Archival Ink.  I then Squeezed my new Powder Pink Classic Ink Pad to get ink into the lid - opened it and grabbed the ink with my blender pen and started to color the pig.  I repeated the process with Old Olive Classic Ink for the grass and flower stem, the flower I used Night of Navy and Daffodil Delight.

Let your imagination run wild!

And if you create a card using the sketch I would love to have you share it on My Facebook Page.
