Stamp Off Bike Ride Circles

Susan, Buffy and I are having some great Challenge
fun today.  Stampin' Up! provides lots of tools and sets
to pull this off. 

 We are going to be going in circles today.  Actually,
that's not out of the ordinary for me!

 I love love love the Bike Ride set on page 20.
I think that I feel the wind blowing through my hair,
 when playing with this bundle.
The coordinating Build A Bike Framelits Dies (p 213)
really make it easy to assemble the bike in different ways.
Given that I am allergic to fussy cutting, that works for me.

I decided to use the wheel images to form a colorful
background.  In case you didn't notice, I used Lemon Lime
Twist (with Bermuda Bay), so I am adjusting to, and
actually enjoying this new In Color. 

The sentiment, which I like very much, comes
from the Sprinkles of Life on page 78.

Now please hop on over to visit Buffy and Susan,
to check out their interpretation of this challenge!

Watercolor Christmas Banner Card

I often check out the project kits, because the 
coordinating sets are really wonderful.  
Watercolor Christmas (p 34 of the Holiday catalog) is
one of those sets.  It is cute and flexible.  The other
advantage of this set is that the sentiments are BIG, and easy
to line up.  I like it when I can stamp quickly, without
worrying about getting the sentiment straight.

Details include Pear Pizzazz, Crumb Cake and 
Copper Foil paper.  The Stitched Shapes Framelits
and Layering Ovals Framelits (p 214) were used to frame
the sentiment. 

Here is more information on this kit.

Duoprinting with Chlorophyll with Pink

 This is another Duoprinting with Chlorophyll project.

The two leaves that worked well
 on the watercolor paper were my lilac (on left) 
and my peach tree, pictured above.  They may be dried out just enough for a perfect impression.

I kept this card really simple, because the leaves
pretty much took care of the creative aspect.
