I colored the images with Copic Markers and die cut it with the coordinating dies. I used N1, N2, N5, N7 and 0 (for the cab); N1, N2, and N5 (for the truck bed); N2, N5, and N7 (for the bumper and underside); Y11, and Y18 (for the headlights) and BG000 and 0 (for the windows); R81 and R83 (license plate); C7, C9 and 100 (for the wheels). I adhered the truck to the card, adding 3M Foam Tape to the extra pieces of the truck bed.
While the kit is no longer available the individual items are available for purchase separately. The stampset is great for all occasions; there are several sentiments for love, thank yous and birthdays.
Hello friends. This cute little card features musical bugs from the Waffle Flower Rock On Stampset as well as Simon Says Stamp Grid Play Alphas Set (no longer available) and cute Valentine’s Day pattern paper (Pebbles Forever My Always 6 x 6 Paper). If you haven’t tried the crafty parcel from Simon, you should give it a try once. I received lots of unexpected supplies I wouldn’t normally purchase for myself but was happy to try.
For this card I began by cutting a piece of Stampin’ Up! Real Red 8 1/2 x 11” Cardstock to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″and scored at 4-1/4″. Then cut a piece of the hearts pattern paper (from Valentine’s Day paper included in the Crafty Parcel) to 3-5/8H x 4”W (left side) and 2”H x 4”W (right side), creating a diagonal cut and grid pattern paper (from the same paper pad) to 1-7/16 x 4” (left side) and 3-5/16 x 4” (right side) and adhered them to the card panel using Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue. Then added some Love From Lizi Red Glitter Peel-offs where the two pieces meet.
Hello friends. For 2020, I want to try to be aware of the supplies I have in my stash and use them. I find that I have a lot of stamps that I purchase for a season or holiday or that comes in a kit and I use it once. And that’s just wasteful! Give your craft supplies some extra love this year!
For this card I featured Simon Says Stamp I Chews You Stampset. It’s a 6 x 8 stampset with tons of cute images and sentiments. It was included in the Simon Says Stamp Stamptember 2018 I Chews You Limited Edition card kit (no longer available). I haven’t had too much opportunity to use it since I bought it, so it was time. And the food characters are friggin’ adorable so I just had to, you know what I mean?!? Food brings people joy and love so a card with cute food on it is just perfect for Valentine’s Day, don’t you think?
While that panel dried, I stamped a bunch of the food characters from the Simon Says Stamp I Chews You Stampset onto Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. It was so hard to choose which ones too use. I love them all soo much!!! I colored them with COPIC markers. I used Y00 and Y13 for the pizza crust, E40, E53 and YR09 for the top of the pizza, and YR09 for the pepperoni and G99 for the peppers. I used E53 and E57 for the cinnabun and pretzel; R17 and R29 for the gumball machine, BG00 and 0 for the glass on it, C1, C5, and C7 for the metal parts, and R81, R83, R17, R29, C00 and 0 for the gumballs; G43 and G99 for the pickle; Y13, Y15, and Y18 for the taco shell, G42 and G99 for the lettuce and YR09 and R17 for the tomato. And BG000 and BG01 for the cupcake wrapper, R81, R83, and R85 for the cupcake and R29 and G43 for the sprinkles.
I adhered the hearts pattern paper to the card base and the watercolor panel to that paper. Then proceeded to fussycut the images and adhered them to the bottom of the card using Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue. I popped up a couple of the images with some Stampin’ Dimensionals. I also added a shadow under the images using COPIC markers C3, C5 and the blender.
