Wheels, wheels, wheels

It's time for a new challenge at Addicted to CAS! 

I have a couple of different interpretations to share for our wheels challenge. I have always loved Clockworks, and the gears remind me of little wheels!
It really works well with Off the Grid and Gorgeous Grunge, two of my other favorite grungy masculine sets. To grunge it up a little more, I used the roughed up the edges with the Stampin' Distress Tool. I almost forgot I had this little guy!  It has now moved to my Go-To Basket that sits on my main workspace so I don't forget about it again! :) 

Stamp Sets: Clockworks, Gorgeous Grunge, Off the Grid, Really Good Greetings
Cardstock: Crumb Cake, Whisper White
Ink: Crumb Cake, Island Indigo
Tools: Stampin' Distress Tool

I have been having a lot of fun with the Good As Gold Simply Sent Sale-a-Bration Kit. Wow that is a mouthful! lol It is so easy to cut apart and use on standard-sized cards.
All I did here was cut an oval out of the center to make a frame for my bicycle and sentiment. So easy but the polka dots add so much character with the gold in there!  To coordinate, I stamped the bicycle in Gold Encore Ink. One of these days I hope I can learn how to capture that look better! :)

Stamp Sets: Happy Day, Timeless Talk
Cardstock: Calypso Coral, Whisper White
Ink: Bermuda Bay, Gold Encore Ink
Tools: Ovals Collection Framelits
Accessories: Good As Gold Simply Sent Kit


  1. I don 't need to tell you how much I love the grunge look of the first card....we are both super grunge fans!! And the dotty paper of the second is fun and a great way to show 2 different ways to interpret this challenge x

  2. Two great cards Shana but love the first one. I've just ordered the Off the Grid stamp but haven't got the Gorgeous Grunge (yet!!! lol). It's great to see the different interpretations for this code word.
