Bikes, Bikes Everywhere!

Hello! I wanted to share some of the bikes I created using Papertrey's Pedal Pusher stamp set and dies. They are SO MUCH FUN! There are endless possibilities. Some of my favorite bikes are the ones that are heat embossed with Zing embossing powder - they look shiny just like a real bike. And the basket fillers - they are adorable - I can't wait to look through my stamps to find other things that "fit". Here are some of the bikes I made, and a few of the cards I've put them on.

 This bike is a semi case of Betsy Veldman's card here. I even bought the picket fence die this release because I loved her card so much. I used a MFT die for the grass, and PTI Life stamps for the flowers (which were stamped in kraft). The little clouds and sunshine are from one of the Heart 2 Heart sets. I used Leaf Zing embossing powder on the bike frame. You can see a close up below.
 This bike frame was embossed with Judikins metalic silver powder - turns out this is not very good with details - I'll have to try another silver. Again, see the close up below. The trees and clouds are from WMS Teeny Trees, and the bike paper is from Colorbok.
 This bike is a semi case of Melissa Phillip's card here.  The bike is embossed with Blush embossing powder - love the pinkness of it! The flowers (as on Melissa's card) are from Daydreamer - grass, and Mini Blooms - flowers (thanks for coming up with this combination Melissa - I can see using these flowers on lots of projects!) The banner is from Bountiful Banners and the sunshine from a H2H set.

Embossed with Red embossing tinsel -(can't tell what the brand is - label is off)  Very sparkly!

Bikes yet to be put on a card. :)

What fun this is! I love this new PTI set!!!
