Fun With Tasty Trucks Stamp Set

Tasty Trucks Stamp Set

Creating with the Tasty Trucks stamp set has not only been fun, but super creative.

This FREE sale-a-Bration stamp set is one you will enjoy the abundance of stamping opportunities.

I’ve seen this little truck turn into adorable options such as an ambulance, UPS truck and even a postal truck.

Of course, I’m always pretty simple when it comes to using this set but I have a few ideas I wanted to share.

 

Four Cards To Inspire You

 

Tasty Trucks, Stampin' Up!, Sale-a-bration

 

While you have many foodie images to choose from I fell in love with the cupcake image.  Maybe it’s because I would be giddy if a cupcake truck was found in my area.  Can you imagine? A girl can dream.

 

 

Try this Color Combination!

Taco Tuesday

Another favorite with this truck is the tacos.  Taco Tuesday is a BIG deal in my house.  Seriously, my kids can change their attitude in a heartbeat if I say it’s Taco Tuesday.

I paired this image with one of my favorite pattern papers, Festive Birthday Designer Series Paper. The images in this paper are a perfect match for any Taco Truck.

This card will be perfect to give one of my kids a little kick in the pants when they are feeling gloomy.

 

Congratulations 

I love the look of generation stamping and the different color hues you can see the more times you continue to stamp.

That is exactly how I created this card below using the congratulations image with the Tasty Trucks stamp set.

The fonts in this set are simple and perfect in size to create small thin banners.

Playful Patterns 

Lastly, I wanted a card that was really playful and I love how you can achieve this look using our Designer Series Paper.

This card and the congratulations card above both use a FREE Designer Series Paper from the Sale-a-Bration products called Carried Away.  This paper has an array of beautiful bold colors to use for your projects.

Peekaboo Peach is a new InColor that I haven’t used enough.  I love how this looks watercolored and it’s perfect for spring paper crafting. I will definitely be pulling this color more for my spring projects.

Try this Color Combination!

Tips & Tricks 

  • Watercoloring the truck after stamping the image onto Watercolor paper provided the best way to color this image because of the size.
  • Fussy cutting the truck gave me the ability to add the truck as another layer onto the card.
  • The taco truck awning was paper pieced using the Festive Birthday Designer Series Paper.

Creating My Own Sunshine

Creating My Own Sunshine

Sunshine on a cloudy day…

As paper crafters we are so lucky that even on the gloomiest days we can create sunshine.  Do you agree?

Sunshine, Sunburst Thinlits Die, Hello

 

Creating Your Own Sunshine!

Now we can create our own sunshine with the Sunburst Thinlits Die.  That’s exactly how I created this card today with a little help from the FREE stamp set Hello from the Sale-a-Bration catalog.

I don’t know about you but every time I use the Hello Stamp set I break out into Adele’s new song…. HELLO… It’s Me…

Sunshine, Sunburst Thinlits Die, Hello

Tips & Tricks 

  • There are lots of little pieces created to finish this card such as only using half of the Burlap ribbon.  I simply cut down the middle and then removed the stray pieces.
  • I used a tiny piece of a Tea Lace Doily and placed it directly under the label die cut.
  • The banner was created by wrapping it around the label die cut.
  • I love the look of the Perfectly Artistic DSP. This marbled look is VERY popular.  This is a FREE Designer Paper from the Sale-a-Bration catalog #141021

Sunshine, Sunburst Thinlits Die, Hello

 

 

The sequins come from the Bright Sequin Assortment.  Love that this coordinates with the other pieces.

 

Sunshine, Sunburst Thinlits Die, Hello

 

The It’s My Party Enamel Dots add the perfect addition for an embellishment to your card and easy to mail.

 

Sunshine, Sunburst Thinlits Die, Hello

 

While the sun might not be shining where you are, it’s okay.  We can create our own sunshine using Stampin’ Up!’s great products.  Imagine the projects you can make using the Sunburst Thinlit Die.  This makes creating EASY especially when we use to make cards like this by hand cutting.  EEK.

Because You’re Awesome!

Because You’re Awesome!

You are.  You are awesome! Isn’t it nice to hear that?  If it’s one thing that I love about the Botanicals For You stamp set, it’s this greeting. This stamp set is a FREE stamp set from the Sale-a-Bration catalog.

 

I think we can all enjoy a little bit of this kind of mail more often.  I’ve said it 1000x before- sending my cards is my biggest struggle. It’s something I’m getting much better about and it makes me SO happy making others smile.

Awesome, Botanicals For You, Stampin' Up!

Botanicals For You

The Daffodil Delight ink with this stamp created a fun and bright card.  It’s a color I don’t use often enough I’ve found.

To create a softer look to the card I added the Botanical Gardens Designer Vellum over the Daffodil Delight ink.

Awesome, Botanicals For You, Stampin' Up!

You will notice these pieces are slightly off set.  I did this on purpose although I’m noticing I should wear my glasses more when I stamp.  I love that little peek of color coming from the Vellum but I also love the soft feel of the vellum overlay.  I am a HUGE fan of Vellum right now.

 

I added another piece of Vellum Cardstock across the card and stamped the greeting using White Embossing Powder.

Awesome, Botanicals For You, Stampin' Up!

 

 

 

Another NEW element you see are the It’s My Party Enamel Dots in the Occasions Catalog.  The colors of the dots are Crushed Curry, Melon Mambo, and Mint Macaron.

 

Awesome, Botanicals For You, Stampin' Up!

 

Tips & Tricks: 

I used the Lots of Labels Framelits for the large greeting- Just for You.  Fit perfectly.

To keep the Vellum in place and not see any adhesive show through I used my Handheld Stapler and stapled the Daffodil Delight and Vellum together in the center. This way the Label Framelit covered it.

 

Tell me what you think.  Is Daffodil Delight a color you use frequently? I’m a bit in love with how bright it is.  Could be the gloomy winter days we’ve had in Florida for awhile.

Have an awesome day!

XOXOXO

Let’s Get the Party Started!

Let’s Get the Party Started!

Who doesn’t love a party?

This is a BIG party.  One that lasts until the END of March!  That’s right, it’s time to Sale-a-Brate!

This time of year for Stampin’ Up! is huge. A beautiful new catalog launches, FREE products with purchase of $50 and the best part is an abundance of inspiration.

I’m feeling a bit giddy over the whole thing.

 

Flowering Fields

Party, Flowering Fields, Stampin' Up!

 

There are 3 FREE products wrapped up in this card.  They include, Flowering Fields ( stamp set I used to stamp the flowers),  Wildflower Fields Designer Series Paper, and then if you look closely you will see a few Vellum Circles.  The Vellum is from the Botanical Gardens Designer Vellum Stack.

 

Create it

Party, Flowering Fields, Stampin' Up!

 

To create this card I punched circles in all sizes from 1-1/4 up to 1-3/4 in size.  Then I layered each of the circles across the Whisper White cardstock.

 

I did a quick stitch across the circles so that they would stay in place.

 

The greeting is from the Cottage Greetings stamp set embossed with Gold Embossing Powder on Vellum Cardstock.  I idd a quick stitch on the end of the Vellum to keep it intact.  I added two staples on the other end to hold in place.

 

Party, Flowering Fields, Stampin' Up!

 

I hope you are as excited as I am about the new Occasions catalog and Sale-a-Bration products. It’s going to be a fantastic time with these products.

What I Love- Literally!

What I Love- Literally!

I’m sharing a combination of what I love from the Sale-a-Bration catalog today and one stamp set is literally called What I Love.

 

I call that perfection when that happens.

 

What I Love- Sale-a-Bration

 What I Love stamp set, Hello Stamp set, Stampin' Up!

 

The flower image in this set can be stamped in 3 layers. Looks beautiful when I line it up correctly.  For this card I wanted to keep it simple.

 

I stamped the outline flower image using 3 different colors and I love how this turned out.  I used Bermuda Bay, Pear Pizzaz and Daffodil Delight for my inks.

 

What I Love stamp set, Hello Stamp set, Stampin' Up!

 

I kept the center simple by using the Hello stamp set from the Sale-a-Bration catalog as well. I love this big hello image.  This stamp set will only be available for a limited time.  Make sure it’s on your list early into Sale-a-Bration.

 

The tiny scallops was created using the Cupcake Builder punch.  I added a two Gold Metallic Doilies behind the label framelit to add a pop of color to the card.  The last little detail was the Gold Metallic Thread.  I’m slightly addicted to this product at the moment.

 

What I Love stamp set, Hello Stamp set, Stampin' Up!

 

In just one day the NEW catalogs will launch and I can’t wait to hear what you think.  It’s going to be a great adventure with these new products.

Back to the Normals of Life

Tuesday marks the day when the kids go back to school and the normal days start once again.  I’m not kidding you… I’m dragging my feet.

 

It took 3 days to get our home back to the non Christmas state.  It’s never taken this long so I don’t know what happened but we were slow as turtles taking it down.  Russ says we are doing it the way it should be done…. take a few ornaments off the tree then rest. A few decorations away, then rest.  He’s right. I think that’s exactly what happened.

Regardless, it’s time to get back to reality:

Adulting

 

Have an awesome Monday.  XOXOXO
