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?

The wheels were based on the largest circle die, with smaller circles cut from Mirror Silver paper.

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! 

Thanks for stopping by!

  8. Absolutely Beautiful, Sara! Your attention to detail is extremely impressive. Love seeing the creative process, but curious, how the idea in your head came about? Did you just look at that first die and say...Yup, I'm gonna make a truck. LOL! Just love it!

  9. Truth be told, they were not in any case considered engine trucks until 1910 either, yet were thought about auto carriages. In their first year, the organization made 73 of them, which was around seven percent of the whole trucking industry in the U.S. in 1907.jual alat berat china
