Tasty Trucks – Tacos or Ice Creams?

By | February 15, 2017

Hi there

Well I am now a qualified First Aider for the next two years :).  It’s always good to have this training and thankfully I haven’t needed to use it in real life.

January through to March is Sale-A-Bration time at Stampin’ Up!  For every NZD$110 you spend during this time you get to pick a FREE product from the Sale-A-Bration catalogue.  One of the sets on offer this year is Tasty Trucks.  This is a fun stamp set with lots of variations.

First up we the ‘Taco Truck’

The image is stamped in Memento Black on Shimmery White cardstock.  One of my favourite items in the new Occasions catalogue  are the Watercolour Pencils.  I used 9 of the 13 colours to colour in my truck and tacos – Rich Razzleberry, Melon Mambo, Basic Grey, Basic Black, Daffodil Delight, Real Red, Old Olive, Pacific Point and Early Espresso.  Once I’d coloured in the image I used my blender pens and aqua painters to blend the colour.  The card base has been dry embossed with the Petal Burst Embossing Folder.

The sentiment has been stamped in Sweet Sugarplum then cut out with the new Oval Stitched Framelit.  The final touch to this card was the Sweet Sugarplum Enamel stars.

I love the line on the sentiment ‘now where’s the cake?’ – inside of course.

So if you’re not into tacos – how about ice creams?

Again this image was stamped in Memento Black but this time I used my markers to colour in the image – Melon Mambo, Blushing Bride, Daffodil Delight, So Saffron, Chocolate Chip, Basic Grey, Basic Black, Crumb Cake and Early Espresso.

My card base is Melon Mambo and the DSP is from the Neutrals Paper Stack.

I used the same sentiment as the first card but didn’t want the ‘cake’ line so only inked up the ‘Happy Birthday’ and punched it out with the Classic Label Punch.

Well I’d better sign off and get ready for my card class.

Enjoy your evening.
