Rusty Style

Sharing another card from my Inking Idaho on the Road display today.  Again, I'm using the Happy Adventure stamp set - specifically the truck stamp that inspired my big project.  

This fun card can be used as an easy birthday card, or simply a pick-me-up card for any occasion.  Created with the Happy Adventure Stamp Set from Fun Stampers Journey, and Color Burst Pencils.

I colored in the image with Color Burst Pencils, including the rusty spots.  The flowers are very small, so they were pretty quick to color without the need for much detail.  I mounted the image onto a piece of Vellum with my sentiment heat embossed in gold, and then added that to a card front made from Printed papers, that were torn at a slight angle when layered to add some interest.  A few Fashion Gold pieces finished off the card.

Vagabond Vintage Truck | Photo Heavy

A few weeks ago, I posted on my Instagram that I was starting my "big" project for Inking Idaho on the Road this year.  I always try to make one showpiece for my display at the event, and this year, I was inspired by one of the stamp sets from the Spring into Summer catalog that launched the beginning of the month.  The Happy Adventure Stamp Set  features a pickup truck with a bed full of flowers.  I wanted to recreate that in paper for the event.


I had no pattern, or instructions that I was following, just a lot of paper, a glue gun and an idea.  So, I started by cutting the "windshield" with one of the flap dies from the Envelo-Box die set.  I based all of the sizing and measurements from that first cut.  I started shaping and trimming the card stock from that point.


And would then add pieces to fill in as I went. 


I added some basic details as I went (if they would help with stability issues), and would go back to add final details at the very end. 


By the time I got the cab built, I knew that this project was going to work, and was starting to get really excited about it.  It took about 24 hours to complete the whole truck, with all the flowers in the bed - I lost count of how many sheets of card stock it took!


Ready to see the finished truck?

My neighbors got a real kick out of me crawling around on the ground to get these photos.  Oh, the things we do for that perfect shot!

I hope you were inspired by this project!  I heard so many amazing comments from people at the Inking Idaho on the Road event this past weekend, and it was fun to make!

Let's Be Adventurous

Today, I'm sharing with you a card from my display at Inking Idaho on the Road this weekend.  The theme to my display is Vagabond Glam, and features some fun creations using items from the Sweet Vagabond collection in the Spring Into Summer Catalog.  

This fun card features the Happy Adventure Stamp Set, and Sunday Adventure prints from Fun Stampers Journey.  The soft, sweet colors, gold accents, and "adventure" sentiment, make this a perfect card for someone with a gypsy soul.

I absolutely adore this paper from the Sunday Adventure Prints, and you'll see it used in several other projects created for this display.  For this card, I used the largest heart die from the Heart-felt die set, to cut a swoopy edge on the heart paper.  There's a lot of gold touches in the embossing of the image, and sentiment, as well as the fashion gold accents.  And the Journey twine adds just a little bit of rustic to the mix.
