I’m back for another installment of the Global Stampers showcase. This month we are featuring the Tasty Trucks stamp set – a FREE item you can earn during Stampin’ Up!’s annual Sale-A-Bration promotion.
Here’s what I came up with…
Let’s take a closer look at each project. First, we have the cute Sweet Treats Truck…
This truck is tiny but fits plenty of sweet treats. I’ve managed to fit 2 mini Tic Tacs & 4 lollies. Here’s a look at the different elements on the truck…
On the top photo, you can see a close up of the white area of the truck. I coloured this and the hub caps with some clear Wink of Stella. As always, the photo doesn’t do justice to the shimmer.
The middle right photo shows you the other side of the truck. I used the Mirror Technique to create the flipped image of the truck.
The bottom left photo shows you the banner – I made the little wrapped lolly image using the taco from the set & hand drew the wrappers with my Project Life journalling pen. The words “Sweet Treats” was made using one of the sentiments from the Basket Bunch set.
You can see in the bottom right photo, I attached the toothpick with two strips of washi tape to the truck. This way, the recipient of the treat can remove it if they wish.
Here’s what I used to create the treat holder.
4 1/2″ x 2″ piece of Whisper White Thick for the base
- Score on the 4 1/2″ side at 3/4″ & 3″
- Score on the 2″ side at 1/4″ & 1 3/4″
2 pieces of 2 1/4″ x 1″ Window Sheet for the truck windows
1 7/8″ x 1 1/4″ piece of Window Sheet for the windscreen
- Score on 1 7/8″ side at 1/4″ & 1 5/8″
- Score on 1 1/4″ side at 3/4″ & 1″
Now let’s take a look at the Tasty Truck birthday card…
I used the free 3/8″ Metallic Ribbon Combo Pack & I couldn’t resist using the Stitched Shaped Framelits for the sentiment. I am totally obsessed with them right now! Here’s a closer look at the truck…
I paper pieced a couple of elements onto the truck using the Playful Palette DSP stack. Since the sentiment asked for cake, I had to include it of course!
I also made this in a different colour way for fun…
I would love to know which colour truck you prefer, so please leave me a comment.
Oh, before I forget! Both my projects were inspired by Erica Cerwin’s Tasty Trucks Facebook Friday Live projects.
I hope you’ve enjoyed my projects today. I’ll be sharing the projects by the other Global Stampers in another post, so make sure you pop back in a few days to check them out.
