Stampin' Addicts Sale-a-bration Blog Hop 2017: Tasty Trucks

Welcome to my stop of the Stampin' Addicts Sale-a-bration Blog Hop! Starting January 4th through March 31st, you can get one of the products we are featuring for FREE with a $50 purchase. I love this time of year for replenishing my supplies as well as the fun new products we can buy, which in turn, helps us earn more free products!

Did you come directly from Twila's Blog featuring So Very Much? I love the font of that Thank-You! Or are you hopping backwards and came from Mickey's Blog featuring Any Occasion. I love how so many little banners can be made with it!

My stamp set is called Tasty Trucks (p 12) and is a whimsical food truck with fun sayings to pair.  

I started by pairing the Tasty Trucks set with the Cool Treats Suite from the Occasions Catalog. The colors are bright and fun! The hot dog card is pretty self-explanatory as it uses the accessories as a highlight in the circles and a plain truck in the background. The fun tablecloth paper is from the Tasty Treats Speciality Designer Series Paper Pack. 

The card on the left is actually a shaker card. Does this picture help you see the Sprinkles Embellishments inside the window?

I loved the Peekaboo Peach Designer Series Papers with the Suns. It screamed Ice Cream Truck at me, so I had to make this truck into an ice cream truck full of sherbert-y colors!  I owned the printed window sheets and thought the peeking gold lattice looked like a fun addition to my already fun truck. I added the sentiment with the Classic Label Punch folded under the side. 

The treat box on top was very fun to create! I picture it as a party favor on a table for an ice cream themed birthday party.

The truck's stripes are actually washi tape from the Tasty Treats Washi Tape-I only had to trim the ends and I did that with my paper snips! The "flag" the truck is placed on is a banner from the Bunch of Banners Framelit Dies. I used the waffle cone paper from the Tasty Treats Designer Series Paper. I the belly band around the Clear Tiny Treat Box is a strip of the embossed ice cream paper from the same pack. The bow on top is a series of layered loops connected with mini-glue dots. 

My finale is a card that doesn't use the Cool Treats Suite. Gasp! 

A taco truck!!! I love the colors here. I started with stamping the truck, then thought, "What colors do I use?" I looked down and saw this pattern from the Sale-a-bration Only Carried Away Designer Series Paper. Very fun! 

I hope you enjoyed my projects. I'll have more pictures on Sunday, January 2nd for you to peruse as well as supply lists. Click next to visit Mickey's Any Occasion projects (or go backwards to visit Twila's So Very Much projects.


Happy Hopping!

Tie-Dye Tee

I've always been a fan of tie-dye and have spent hours trying to get a watercolor tie-dye effect on cards. Stampin' Up! knows me so well that they created a tie-dye-two-step-stampin'-Photopolymer-set just for me. (Although, you can also buy it after January 5th!)

Here's my creation:

I wanted a traditional tie dye look so layered Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, and Tempting Turquoise. The Custom Tee Bundle allowed me to get the T-shirt Builder framelits as well as the T-shirt Outlines in the Custom Tee Photopolymer Stamp Set. I can see hours of fun creating in my future. 

Since the outside says, "If you're happy and you know it, keep it up." I left the inside available for a long inspirational handwritten message. 

Before I decided on this color scheme, I played around a bit:

This set is going to be so fun! If you want the saying I used on my T-shirt. You'll have to spend $50 and choose Designer Tee for your FREE Sale-a-bration item.

Happy Stamping!

Help Me Decide Results: Tasty Truck

The long hiatus is over! Although I have stamped for events, I have not blogged about it. I take my teaching life very seriously and it took over this fall. Hopefully, I can find more time to blog. I do love sharing.

Well, here it is. I have stamped, photographed and blogged all in one day. (Plus cleaning up my crafty area so I could start).

And the inside:

I used the NEW watercolor pencils in Stampin' Colors available to buy after January 3rd from the new Occasions Catalog.  The colors were fun to play with, but I will use watercolor paper next time.
I combined the Sale-a-bration set Tasty Trucks with items from the Cool Treats Suite of the Occassions Catalog.

I used a Sale-a-bration Stamp Set called Tasty Trucks after I surveyed my facebook followers. I only waited an hour before working! So the totals were small.

Tasty Trucks: 2
Designer Tee: 1

Want to see more with this set? Join me Friday, December 30th for the Stampin' Addicts Sale-a-bration Blog Hop!

Happy Stamping!
