If your following the Pennsational Team Blog Hop, then you’ve just come from the lovely Rebecca Scurr, doesn’t she do such gorgeous work. I am so blessed to have so many talented stampers/paper crafters in my team.
I’m always getting asked for male cards and so when I saw this “One Wild Ride” set on page 115 of the new Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue, I knew I had to get it! I have nephews and many male friends who ride, so I knew it would get a lot of use – these stamps would make great 18th or 21st cards too, or great for those at the other end of their lives, who might be retiring, let alone just the general birthday card. I have also seen this card made for girls/ladies too – even one of the samples on page 115 has been done in Blushing Bride and Smokey Slate – perfect for that female rider too!
I kept these cards in the same colour scheme, Basic Black, Real Red and Whisper White – I’ve added some of the silver foil sheets to add that little bit of “metal” and texture. This set has many great sentiments in it to, as you can see the “Born to Ride” banner (my favourite), coordinates with the new “Bunch of Banners framelits” on page 193 and the “Life’s a Journey” badge is designed to be used with the new “Best Badge” punch on page 186. It also has the gravel and tyre tracks stamps, making it so versatile, that you don’t really need any other stamp set to coordinate with it – it’s all in the one set.
This really is one of those sets that you’ll use again and again and unlike some sets, it’s images won’t date or be out of style as the images are so traditional. You can purchase these great products from my online store and if you do, I’ll send you the tutorial for these cards (plus 2 more) for free, as a thank you from me.
Thanks for joining us today – enjoy xxxx
Head off to my next team member the lovely Joanna Wiggs – she’s bound to have something gorgeous in store.
