Of Course I have a Bike On My Wall! Don't You?

It's time for a brand new Design Team challenge over at Gourmet Rubber Stamps and this one is a fun one! The DT challenge was to be inspired by decor in your own home! Find something that inspires you, photograph it, and then create a card based on that piece. Well, I walked around for a bit trying to decide what to use and had a few ideas, but none that were really hitting me. And then I saw it. Right there hanging in our living room. The Hubbums' bike. Yup. It hangs in our living room because we're cool like that. HA! We have a small house and he needed a place to store it, we had a giant, empty wall in the living room, so...this is what I suggested!

And it has worked rather well, too, if I do say so myself. It's safe, easily accessible, and covers the big giant empty wall! Perfect 'us' decor! LOL! Here is the card I created inspired by the 'Bike on the Wall' piece in my home. HA!

*LOVE!* I used two different stamp sets for this one. The bicycle is from the Sealed With A Kiss Diners set and the sentiment is from the Swingin' Spring Diners set. They work perfectly together!

  2. That's a cool card you made, however, I too have a small apartment and instead of putting my bike on display in the living room, I got a Montague, which is a folding bike. So I can store it in my closet. Granted, I wouldn't get the cool inspiration, but I like not having to look at it all the time too.

  8. Great card!! I love the bits of pattern paper at the bottom of the card for the punch of color! Perfect touch.

  9. Love the popped up bike - well, both of them, I guess :) We had bikes everywhere until earlier this week - in the shed, in the basement, in the yard...gave away 4 outgrown bikes to a teen who rehabs & donates them. How cool is that? So now we're down to one in the bsmt, and 3 hanging out with the barbecue. I remember having to keep mine in our kitchen in our first place...should have hung it up!
