Here’s the Feeling Sentimental  bicycle in motion!  To create the motion, I inked up the stamp with Raspberry Ripple and stamped it four times, shifting to the left without reinking.  I love the effect.  Then I added the large Rhinestone to the front bike for added emphasize.

The beautiful paper is from the Print Poetry Designer Series Paper Stack.  The stack includes 48 sheets, 4 each of 12 double-sided designs.  Each sheet is 4-1/2″ x 6-1/2″, perfect for card making or picture matting and a variety of other projects.  And it’s printed in a lovely array of styles in beautiful In Colors.

“So glad” is stamped from the SAB Bloomin’ Marvelous set.  I used a Raspberry Ripple marker to color just the words I wanted from the stamp.  It fit just right in the circle punch layered on the scallop circle.

Happy Easter is stamped from the Stampin’ Up! Teeny Tiny Wishes Stamp Set and punched out with the Word Window punch.  After you punch it out you can feed one end of it into the bottom of the punch and shorten the strip, which is what I did here.

Here’s the card recipe:
