About Me

I love crafting, especially rubber stamping. Most weekends I can be found surrounded by paper, rubber stamps and ink.

Hi and happy Tuesday afternoon,

Hope all are well. I have a super Clean and Simple card to share with you today. The theme at Retro Rubber Challenge this week is "black and white." I was going to make a card with flowers, but while looking through some of my sets, I ran across the Taylored Expressions Bikes & Trikes set and decided to make a Friend themed card. I think this stamped image looks pretty good in just black and white. I don't know exactly when this set came out, but I'm pretty confident it's older than five years old.

The card base is SU Heavy Whisper White and the black & white patterned paper is a piece from my misc stash. No clue of the company. Using my Misti I stamped the bike several times using Memento tuxedo black in to make it nice and dark. Same with the sentiment. I added a couple black rhinestones and a small wooden butterfly by SU.

I cheated on the inside and used some light pink on the stamped sentiment (but it's mostly black, LOL.) I added another strip of the black & white paper too.

A very simple design and super quick to make. I love looking though my older sets for this challenge!

Thanks for looking,

Stamps: Bikes & Trikes set by Taylored Expressions
Paper: SU heavy whisper white card stock and misc patterned paper
Ink: Memento tuxedo black, light pink Copic
Other: Misti Stamping tool, SU wood butterfly, black rhinestones, SU mini glue dot


  1. This is beautiful, Colleen - as always. The image of the tandem cycle fits the sentiment perfectly. And I think that the inside is sweet with a touch of pink and is just perfect. Thank you for joining us again at Retro Rubber Challenge.

  2. How CUTE! Not only is the image fun, but the inside sentiment is so perfect with it, especially colored in pink!! Wheeee! I love it! Thanks for playing with the Retro Rubber peeps this week!

  3. What a great CAS card with a matching sweet sentiment! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Retro Rubber for our Black and White challenge!
