Stampin’ Up! Pedal Pusher Encouragement Card

My share for today is from the Stampin’ Up! Pedal Pusher stamp set from the Sale-a Bration catalog.  Love, love, love  this stamp set!  

Pedal Pusher from Stampin' Up!

This stamp set, even if not free, would be one of my favorites.  If you haven’t ordered yours yet, remember the last day of Sale-a-Bration is March 31st.  Don’t wait till the last minute…..

I started by stamping the “ground”  with a stamp from the Sheltering Tree stamp set in Tip Top Taupe.  I stamped it off once before stamping it onto a panel of Very Vanilla card stock.  Next, the bicycle from Pedal Pusher was stamped in Basic Black archival ink and then colored in with Stampin’ Write markers.  The basket, flowers, and flag were also stamped first in Basic Black, then colored in with markers, too.

Then, I cut a panel of Sweet Li’l Things DSP (clouds) and attached it to the art piece with MP liquid glue.  This was then glued to a panel of Pool Party card stock and a length of Pool Party 1/4″ ribbon was attached with Tear and Tape adhesive, then the bow attached with a glue dot.  I added dimensionals and then popped it onto the So Saffron card base.

For the inside, I repeated part of the bicycle image from Pedal Pusher and added a cloud from the Sprinkles of Life stamp set.

Stampin’ Up! Pedal Pusher Happy Birthday

I used the Stampin’ Up! Pedal Pusher Sale-a-Bration stamp set for my card to share with you today.


Stampin' Up! Pedal Pusher Happy Birthday by Cardiology by Jari

Stampin’ Up! just released this stamp set, Pedal Pusher, as a new limited time product during Sale-a-Bration.  Wow, don’t you love it?  Especially since it is free with any purchase of $50. before tax and shipping!!  If you haven’t seen the new releases, just click here to take a look.  And, watch a video on the Pedal Pusher set to get some more inspiration!   Don’t wait too long to get this set-March 31st is the last day, or while supplies last.

I started with the bicycle built for two from Pedal Pusher, and stamped it in Memento Black ink, then colored it with my Stampin’ Write markers.  It was then fussy cut with Paper Snips.

I actually used one of the other new stamp sets from Sale-a-Bration called Party Pants, for the sentiment on balloon on front.  Tne balloons were punched with the new Balloon Bouquet punch. I love it because it will punch two sizes of balloons!   I stamped the Melon Mambo one with Versa Mark ink and heat embossed it with White embossing powder, then gave all of the balloons some depth with my uni-ball gel Signo pen.

The card layers are from It’s My Party DSP, and the card base is Melon Mambo.  The Baker’s Twine combo pack colors of Melon Mambo/Basic Black and Mint Macaron/ Basic Black tie in so nicely with this paper for the balloon strings.

The sentiment is also from the new Sale-a-Bration Party Pants set.  It’s fun mixing it up with all of Stampin’ Up! birthday themed stamps!  The colors, Melon Mambo, Mint Macaron and Crushed Curry were also used to tie it all together.


Card stock cuts in inches, will be at the end of the post.
