Hi there stampers!  For this week’s TGIF Challenge we are featuring a picture inspiration to get those creative juices flowing.  The moment I saw this image I was drawn to the cute bike with the basket along with all the pumpkins.  I immediately thought of the Bike Ride stamp set from the Annual Catalog that had not seen much love lately with all the new goodies that have been available. 

I started with a piece of Whisper White cardstock and stamped all the images from the Bike Ride stamp set.  I stamped the bike in Coastal Cabana, the wheels in Gray Granite, the basket in Tuxedo Memento Black and Gray Granite, and I stamped the apples in Tuxedo Memento Black.  To make the apples look like pumpkins from the picture, I used my Stampin’ Blends to color them with Pumpkin Pie.  I then used the coordinating framelits called Build a Bike to cut all the images out.

This week's #tgifchallenge is an inspiration photo and I used the bike and plaid for my inspiration to make my card featuring the #bikeride stamp set and #buildabikeframelits along with the #buffalocheck background stamp

I then took a panel of Gray Granite cardstock and stamped the Buffalo Check background stamp using white Craft Stampin’ Pad.  I then used dimensionals to adhered the bike to a rectangle piece of Whisper White and added rhinestones to the wheels.  I then used my multipurpose glue to adhere the bike panel onto the Gray Granite stamped panel.  The entire panel was adhered to a side folding A2 cardbase made from Coastal Cabana.  I stamped the sentiment from Amazing Life (one of the new sets from the upcoming Occasions Catalog) using Versamark and heat set in White Emboss Powder.

I forgot how much I love this bike image and how cut it is cut out with the coordinating dies.  I hope you get inspired by the picture for this week and play along with us!
