It has been quite a while since I've played with my OCL stamps, so I thought I'd dust off a couple of sets and get creative with them over the next few days. I wanted to make a cheerful spring card since the weather here has been so beautiful lately. Of course, that was yesterday and now today it's 45 degrees, cold and windy! I decided to use the OCL set "Out for a Spin" This is such a cute set and I don't use it nearly as often as I should. I chose Fine Linen, Pink, Sage Shadow and Not Quite Navy to go with the pattern paper from the hopscotch collection by Basic Grey. I used the Top Note Die from Stampin Up for the center panel and yes, even took the time to do some real stitching around the edges. And yes, it took FOREVER! Oh well, I guess it was a good thing the TV show I was watching was entertaining! Because this stamp is a bit large, I chose to make a longer card instead of a standard 5 1/2 x 4 1/4. This card measures 6 1/4 x 3 1/2. It will fit into a 6 1/2x 4 3/4 invitation type envelope. I stamped the bicycle with Memento ink in Rich Cocoa and then used Copic Markers to color it in. It's a bit hard to see in the picture; but I did add a tiny dot of glitter to each of the flower's centers.
Ok, so that's all for me for now. I hope you all have a fabulous day; and I'll see everyone again soon!
