Happy, happy Tuesday! I hope your week is off to a rousing start. Today I get to share a fun, clean and simple card I made featuring what is sure to become one of my favorite stamp sets -- Bikes & Trikes from Taylored Expressions (and a bright idea from Jami Sibley, our DT Coordinator)! 

I really wanted the bike and sentiment to shine here, so I did without patterned paper or embellishments. I know that sometimes it is really difficult to not want to add more and more, but if you aren't usually a clean and simple kind of card-maker, give it a try and you'll be surprised at how fun and easy it can be.

After stamping and coloring the bike, I also stamped the sentiment, but masked out the word "you" on the stamp. I wanted to use the new (and coordinating!) Skinny Alphabet Taylored Die, TE's first alphabet set, to die-cut out the word instead. With a bit of removable adhesive, it's so easy to add this fun bit of design to any card!

Stamps: Bikes & Trikes (Emily Burger for Taylored Expressions)
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black (Tsukineko)
Cardstock: Solar White (Neenah); Baja Breeze, Real Red (Stampin' Up!)
Coloring Medium: Sketch Markers (Copic)
Dies: Tall & Skinny Alpha (Taylored Expressions)

I hope you liked my card today...don't forget to check out the rest of the Baker's Dozen for more peeks at this cute new set!
