Today the Baker's Dozen is giving you a little peek at Bikes & Trikes, a set concepted by Jami Sibley and brought to life by Emily Burger for the Embracing Grace line of stamps.

I am loving this sweet set - it's full of all sorts of bicycles and this little old fashioned bike is one of my favorites.  I love the simplicity of it and found some Summer Fresh paper, which had this fun frame to showcase this vintage bicycle perfectly.  I stamped the image in Brilliance Graphite Black ink and then colored it just a bit with Copic Markers.  

Do you not LOVE that gorgeous bloom?  It's Petal Pops 2 dies, and the insides of the petals pop out to create extra dimension in the bloom.  LOVE them!  I added some green "leaves" with the Fly Your Flag 2 die and then added a yellow button and twine.  The heart is part of the Shaped Buckles Dies, which are perfect for running ribbon through to make a fun embellishment on your project.

The rest of the Baker's Dozen have more to show you today, so please stop by and see:
