So- here's what I came up with using the new Riding By set!

How retro cool is that! This is another fun set illustrated by Samantha Casey! I can't stop using it- it's one of my favorites!

I took the new zig-zag stamp (from the Riding By set) and stamped it repeatedly with Versamark ink. Then, I quickly threw some silver embossing powder on it before the ink dried! Ya really have to work fast (I know from experience... lol) or you could simply heat emboss a couple of zig zags at a time (probably a much smarter plan than the one I went with! LOL!)

After heat setting the silver zig zags, I die cut a little section out so the bike could peek through! When stamping the bike directly on the card, I had to remember to mask the right side of the card because I only wanted the bike image to show up inside the cut out section. Yup, that's another one I learned through trial and error! HAHA!

I am IN LOVE with that sentiment, by the way... there are quite a few people I can think of to send this card off to! 

Make sure you run over to the Market Street Stamps blog to check out all the other sneak peeks!
