Good morning, y’all – welcome to this month’s Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop – this week we’re featuring the cool new products in the 2017 Occasions and Sale-A-Bration catalogs!! I can’t wait to see what all the ladies come up with and I hope you’ll spend some time scrolling thru all their offerings today!
I decided to play with the Tasty Trucks stamp set – a free goody from the Sale-A-Bration flyer. And I used it to also make some designer paper of my own! Take a look-see:
I used the sketch portion from the Fusion challenge this week!
And my color palette is from the Can You CASE It color challenge:
The next layer is a piece of Whisper White card stock – and this is where I made my own personal DSP. Using Smoky Slate ink and the cake and ice cream cones images in the Tasty Trucks stamp set, I stamped them from top to bottom. Then I used my Melon Mambo and Bermuda Bay Watercolor Pencils to color them all in.
For my Tasty Truck, I stamped it in Bermuda Bay on Whisper White and fussy cut it. I added a Tasty Truck sentiment in Melon Mambo, added a Melon Mambo banner string, and a couple of Smoky Slate cupcakes. Then I used the Bermuda Bay, Melon Mambo and Basic Gray Watercolor Pencils to start coloring. I did cheat on the color challenge and used a tiny bit of the Daffodil Delight pencil to give the truck a proper headlight!
The final bit was to use some Liquid Glue to adhere a new Lace Doily to the card front, then I popped the Tasty Truck over the top with Stampin’ Dimensionals. And that was it for the card front.
On the inside, I stamped a second Tasty Trucks sentiment in Melon Mambo on a Whisper White panel. Then I repeated the banners and a couple of Smoky Slate cupcakes and colored them all with Watercolor Pencils.
My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Melon Mambo banners and a Smoky Slate cake on the front…
Et Voila! This little stamp set is really cute – it’s got tacos and hot dogs in addition to the cake (hey – wait! Do you think those might have been…pancakes?!? Oh jeez!!). Any way – it’s sweet and I hope you like the card! 🙂
Scroll on down for all the card cuts and products you need to make this one for yourself!
