Pedal Pusher

Hello and welcome to the fourth day of the Papertrey Ink May countdown and the first Design Team group post. Today's group post is all about showcasing the new Pedal Pusher.  As most of you already know, clean and simple is so my style.  I just love how easy it is to stamp a card using the build-able pieces from Pedal Pusher.  It's perfect for create a colorful and detailed one-layer card.  Check it out...
My focus on this first flat card is the fun wedding can image.  I began by stamping to two step bike... wheels in gray and bike in aqua.  Here's A Tip:  For a bit of interest, I created the look of movement by stamping a portion of the bike slightly off the edge of the card base.  This unexpected detail takes this simple card and kicks it up a notch.
The little additions you choose to add to this basic bike image are what make your project unique. 
Up next, I've paired Pedal Pusher with the balloons and bow from Birthday Style.
I knew I wanted to have the balloons carry the bike away.  Working with a number of larger images was a little tricky to incorporate onto a small 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" card front.  But by stamping both the balloons and bike over the edges I was able to achieve just that.  I love the end results!

Well, that concludes my look at Pedal PusherJust remember... this stamp sets will be available for purchase through Papertrey Ink, beginning May 15th

Now, be sure to see what the rest of the Papertrey Ink design team has in store for you today...
Thanks so much for stopping by!

  10. Hawaiian shores with enchanted evening is a glorious combination. And I love how you made the bicycle float up and away. Thanks for adding your tips to the post. I knew today's tip about stamping an image off the page, but there have been others of which I wasn't aware.

  11. Such great CAS -- the way the wedding bike goes off into the future and the way the birthday bike looks like it's being lifted by the balloons -- your card compositions are always so great, and the extra thought you put into the placement just totally completes the message!
