My post today stars the so very loved Trucking Along Bundle. It was so loved that it sold out twice. The stamp set is still available and the punch will be returning as quickly as is possible. So please do not give up on this fun set.
This card originated with the layout. But I am going to begin with the fun part. All of the stamped images are from the Trucking Along stamp set.The Truck is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored using the Lost Lagoon Stampin’ Blends. The addition of the flowers in the bed of the truck were stamped the same and colored with the Daffodil Delight and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends. This color struck a cord with me for the truck. In my High School parking lot there were probably a dozen trucks that were about that shade of green. Apparently it was a favorite truck color in the 70″s. LOL!!!
To finish the truck scene, I used a strip of Daffodil Delight card stock that measures 4 1/4 X 3/4. It is flagged on each end using the Banners Pick A Punch. The sentiment is from the stamp set and stamped lower than usual on the strip. This is to accommodate the “shadow” stamp for beneath the truck. I used the Truck Builder Punch to cut the truck, but the flowers in the bed must be fussy cut. However I have a great tip for you!! Do not cut straight across the bottom of the flowers. I only cut in a tiny bit on each side of the bottom and then left a part of the scrap that is maybe a 1/4″ by 1/4″ tab. By adding a glue dot to that tab, it makes it extremely easy to add it to the bed of the truck!
The color choices were made from the DSP. I know you have heard that from me before! When I saw this Lost Lagoon it reminded me of the truck color I mentioned at the top. So that was where I went with this card. The gorgeous DSP is from the Inked Botanicals Designer Series Paper. I love this entire pack! The piece is a square that measures 2 7/8 X 2 7/8 and then is cut on the diagonal. Thankfully it is not a directional pattern. And I will not say how long it took me to find the right measurement to fit the ends of the Basic White layer. 🙂
The Basic White layer is embossed using one of the Basics 3D Embossing Folders. These are only available in the Online Exclusives. As the name implies there are three folders in one pack. This one is what I call the crosshatch one. It is by far my favorite. To finish the card, I raised the truck with Stampin’ Dimensionals and then scattered a few of the Glossy Dots around the White layer.
