Stampin’ Up! Tasty Trucks for Happy Inkin’ Thursday

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

I used Tasty Trucks,  from the Stampin’ Up! Sale-A-Bration flyer, for my share for our blog hop today.  This food truck is so cute and I love its versatility!  And, it was FREE!  

 

Trucks

 

 Here is our color challenge:

Happy Inkin' Thursday color challenge

These colors are really fun, and just happen to be included in the Tasty Treats Specialty Designer Series paper.  So that part was pretty easy.  I decided to use the Tasty Trucks stamp set from the Sale-A-Bration flyer because I think it is so cute.  I started by stamping the truck in Basic Black Archival ink onto a panel of Whisper White card stock.  Then, I pulled out my Crumb Cake, Watermelon Wonder and Pool Party ink pads and a Blender Pen.  I pressed down on the lids quite a bit before opening so that some of the ink would transfer to the top cover.  Then, I used this ink to “color” in the truck with my blender pen.

TrucksNext, I die cut the truck image with one of the largest circles in the Layering Circles Framelits collection.  The Watermelon Wonder frame was die cut with the largest Scalloped Circle Framelits die and attached with liquid glue.  I stamped another awning from the truck image and two sets of flags.  Once they were colored with my blender pen and ink, I fussy cut them out.  The awning was attached with small pieces of Dimensionals, and the Pool Party flags added with a little dab of liquid glue.  The popsicles were cut out of the Tasty Treats DSP and added with Dimensionals.  

Trucks

I noticed the wheels needed some hubcaps, so I added two Pool Party Enamel Shapes to finish off the truck.  The sentiment was stamped in Basic Black Archival ink and die cut with the smallest banner in the Bunch of Banners Framelits Dies.  A second banner was cut in Pool Party, cut in half and attached to either end of the Whisper White one  with liquid glue.  The card base is Watermelon Wonder with panels of Pool Party and Tasty Treats Specialty DSP layered and attached with Dimensionals.  A strip of Watermelon Wonder striped card stock from Tasty Treats and two banners from another pattern in the Tasty Treats DSP were added with liquid glue and the art panel and sentiment panel popped on with Dimensionals.  

Trucks

For the inside, I added a strip of the Watermelon Wonder stripe onto a panel of Whisper White and left room for a handwritten note.  

A complete list of supplies and card stock cuts in inches for my Tasty Trucks card will be at the end of my post.

Stampin’ Up! So In Love Anniversary Card for FMS 270

Today, I am sharing an anniversary card using the So In Love Bundle from the  2017 Occasions catalog.  The Falling in Love Suite is found on pages 50-52, and there are so many beautiful items to choose from!  

 

So in Love

 

The inspiration for my sketch is from Freshly Made Sketches FMS #270

MS 270 Anniversary

First, I stamped the happy anniversary sentiment from So In Love in Soft Suede onto a panel of Very Vanilla. Then, I attached that panel onto my Soft Suede card stock base.  

Anniversary

 

Next, I used the large lacy So Detailed Thinlet Die to cut a panel of Very Vanilla card stock.  I adhered the cut out to a panel of the Falling In Love DSP with liquid glue and wrapped a length of Very Vanilla Satin ribbon around it, securing it in a few spots with Tear & Tape adhesive.  Once the bow was tied I added a couple of Glue Dots to make sure it wasn’t going to slip around.  

Anniversary

I used a strand of Silver Thread to tie the Falling In Love Embellishment to the existing bow and popped that panel onto the front with dimensionals.  

Anniversary

I inked up the flower image from So In Love in Soft Suede ink and stamped off twice before actually stamSoping the flower on the lower left corner.  I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to line up the sentiment and even stamped it twice in Soft Suede so that it would be bold on the Very Vanilla panel.  

I made an anniversary card, but you could also make a Valentine, a congratulations or a wedding card with this set. Mix and match it and even make a beautiful birthday card–the sky is the limit with this set!

Hey, Chick for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Occasions & Sale-A-Bration Blog Hop

Amy's Inkin' Krew Hey Chick

 

This month, Amy’s Inkin’ Krew is bringing you projects from the new Occasions and Sale-A-Bration catalogs.  Don’t you just love all of the new products?  I hope you’ll make sure and hop around to see what is new!  I’m sharing Hey, Chick, one of the FREE stamp sets you can earn during Sale-A-Bration.  

 

Chick

I started out using a scrap piece of paper to stamp all sorts of possibilities for these three images, and the umbrella from the Weather Together stamp set.  Once I decided on how I wanted it to look, I stamped each of the Hey, Chick images in Basic Gray onto a panel of Shimmery White Card Stock.  Then, I stamped the raindrops, also from Weather Together, in Basic Gray ink.  I wanted the umbrella to appear to be under the rooster’s wing, so, I made a mask of his wing with a post-it note.  Once I cut out the wing part, I adhered it over his real wing and then stamped the handle of the umbrella.  

Chick

 

Next, I stamped the canopy of the umbrella in Basic Gray right above the handle onto my Shimmery White card stock. I also stamped the canopy onto a panel of Watermelon Wonder polka dot paper from the 2015-2017 In Color Paper Stacks and used the coordinating die to cut it out. This is called Paper Piecing.  Adds some interest, doesn’t it?  

My next step was to begin the coloring process on the rooster, the egg and the hen.  So, I pulled out my new Watercolor Pencils (SO FUN), and began to lightly blend each image.   I used Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight, Early Expresso and Basic Gray.  

 

Chick

 

The sentiment, also from Hey Chick, was stamped with Versa Mark ink onto a panel of Basic Gray, sprinkled with White Emboss Powder and heat embossed.  I then cut it out with the small oval from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.  

My card base is Watermelon Wonder. The next layer, from Carried Away DSP (also free during Sale-A-Bration), was adhered with glue.  The art panel was framed with Basic Gray card stock and then popped onto the front with dimensionals.  

 

Hey Chick

 

So, for the inside, I could not leave out this crazy image!  I am told by a team member that he is a Silkie breed rooster.  I looked it up on a website she suggested and found this picture of one called a Top Hat Special.  Crazy fun!!

 

A complete list of supplies and card stock cuts will be at the end of my post.
