It’s time for a new Seize the Birthday challenge! My lovely team mate Shirley chose our new Topping and she wants to see some wheels on our projects!
I have a cool motorcycle stamp by The Ton, called Motorcycle Boss. And I thought this is the perfect one for this topping!
To begin I stamped the motorcycle in black on some watercolor paper and clear heat embossed it. Then I colored it in bright red, gray and gold. I cut the motorcylcle using the coordinating die and set it aside.
To create the background I made a red ombre watercolored panel and added some strokes of gold watercolor on it after the panel was dry. To add some interest to the background I cut the panel using a die from Gingham Plaid Layering Coverplate die set. I secured the panel on the front with a sheet of Press’n Seal and added foam tape to the back of the die cut rectangles. I adhered the rectangles on a white cardbase and foam mounted the motorcycle on it.
The sentiment is from the same stamp set. I gold heat embossed the large sentiment on a piece of vellum. cut it into a rectangle and adhered it on a rectangle of the background. The birthday sentiment was white heat embossed on black and added to the card. I finished off the card with a few Medallion Gold sequins.
Please visit Seize the Birthday blog for more inspiration. Our Surprise Party Guest Lynda from Loopyloocards and my talented team mates made some cool inspiration cards!
And don’t forget to play along!

So fun! I can already see that they need to add a sentiment that says “boss lady!” or maybe they already did?
What a fabulous bike and love the coverplate background made from that beautifully inked piece TaeEun and such a lovely fun sentiment and added sequins both gold embossed which coordinate perfectly. x
Love your snazzy “wheels” TaeEun. That lovely background is perfect. Fabulous card.
This is the perfect stamp for this challenge. You have once again colored it to come alive. Love that sentiment as well. A great masculine card.
I of course know you create gorgeous floral cards, so it’s such fun to see this awesome motorcycle card from you! The background is stunning and sets off the “wheels” to perfection.
That gorgeous watercoloured background looks even better diecut into the plaid design! Perfect with the glamorous looking motorbike, Cathy x
