Pedal Praise Paper Pumpkin Projects (try saying that 5 times fast!)

I've had great fun playing with my Pedal Praise Paper Pumpkin kit since it arrived (in August?  Has it really already been that long?)   The bicycle image from the kit is just so perfectly fun!!!  Here's what I've been creating with it so far:

I started with a card made following the instructions in the kit:

Then, tried a few variations on that:

(The last two use the technique of repeatedly stamping the image, a little offset each time, and without reinking, to give the illusion of motion . . . inspired by some samples I saw and pinned on Pinterest, as well)

I bet if you look closely you can tell how the next two cards are related:  

(In case you didn't catch it, the top card uses the negative left behind when I die cut the stamped bicycle image for the bottom card).  Also, the top one uses Hello to You stamp and the bottom one was a fun way to use up some leftover pieces from this, earlier Paper Pumpkin kit.

Then, I decided to switch things up some more, and use a slightly different color scheme (Marina Mist in place of the Bermuda Bay, as well as some Smoky Slate:

The top card in this set uses stamps from a collection of Paper Pumpkin kits (splatter from the Welcome Kit, dots from the Try It kit, "The Good Life" from the kit of that name, and of course, the bicycle).  The bottom card uses the big "thank you" from the Another Thank You Photopolymer stamp set.

Hope you enjoy these!
