A Vintage Bicycle and a Glittery Heart

Hi stamping friends!   I have two cards to share with you that I made this past weekend.

My first card was inspired by this Bike Print from the Inspiration Challenge over at Split Coast.
I used a vintage biker stamp from Rubbernecker for my image as well as a dotted dirt stamp. (which I think I stamped a little too often now that I'm looking at it! - whoops!) The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink.  I sponged on the colors with my blending tool from Ranger.  It's always good to have a masculine birthday card on hand!

My 2nd card was made for the Featured Stamper challenge and I chose Pam's (pamshobby) I{heart} Hearts card to CASE.
I'm working on Valentine's for a sale at my church so I was glad to have this inspiration for a new design!

I made my card 4 1/4" x 4 1/4", used one big heart from Waltzingmouse  instead of several smaller hearts and used a funky Glitter Eyelash yarn from Martha Stewart rather than a red ribbon. I love how it just sticks out all over the place! The yarn is tied around the card - pulled through a hole in the heart and tied in a bow.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
