Trucking Along Tag Card – 30 Day Christmas Cardmaking Challenge

With the theme of Heading Home. for this creation for the #30DayCardmakingChallenge I went straight for my trucking along bundle. It just had that going home feel and my hardest decision was whether to put a Christmas tree or presents atop the truck.

#30DayChristmasCardmakingChallenge, 2023 DDay 26, Heading Home

My card design has been inspired by the White Christmas theme at TGIF Challenges #tgifc451. The addition of blue and Kraft was in-keeping with my snowy look I had on the card.

TGIF Challenges TGIFC451

I die cut a tag from the Kraft Note Cards and then added some Shimmery White Embossing Paste using the Abundant Beauty Decorative Masks. I love the texture that this gives and it creates a unique gift tag.

For the second tag. I tore a piece of paper and used it as a mask, blending Boho Blue and Starry Sky, graduating in darkness down the tag.

Finally, the truck was coloured with Stampin’ Blends. Now, if you don’t want to go through this process, you can use the two-step stamping method and stamp in the fill-in image to give you a quickly coloured truck.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this project and look forward to sharing my next project with you tomorrow. I’m heading home with this challenge and will be done before Christmas!

Father’s Day Trucking Along Card

I hope you are having a wonderful Sunday and if you are in Australia you are likely to be enjoying some family time. I hope the special men in your family enjoy a very happy Father’s Day.

The vintage truck from the Trucking Along stamp set was perfect against this background. To colour it, I used a technique which I learned during one of our demonstrator events a couple of months ago where we were shown how to create the look of a rusty old ute.

CREATING THE TRUCK

  • Stamp truck in Saddle Brown Stazon ink on Fluid 100 Paper
  • Using a Water Painter add Wild Wheat ink in sections
  • Once dry, add Pecan Pie
  • Once dry, add Tahitian Tide

Pooling the water in sections will make the colours run creating the look of rust. However don’t over do it as you don’t want the colours to become muddy. I used my heat gun to speed up the drying process between colour applications.

The background created with the Rays of Light stamp set was inked with Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie. When using a large background stamp, place the stamp face up and ink it then take the paper down to it. Press firmly and rub over it to ensure the ink transfers fully.

To take away the starkness of the white background I lightly blended Pumpkin Pie ink around the rays using a Blending Brush.

Some fussy cut clouds were added to create this mini scene. The rust look was carried through to the banners which were die cut from the Earthen Elegance Designer Series Paper.

Thank you for taking the time to stop by my blog today. I hope you like what I have shared and I would love for you to leave a comment as you leave.

I am off to celebrate Father’s Day with my daughter who insisted on taking me out today as I’ve been doing a double-role of mum and dad. I’m looking forward to a really fun day and spending time with Cassidy. If you follow me on the socials or subscribe to my newsletter, you’re sure to see some photos!

I hope you have a lovely week ahead of you.

Special Delivery – Trucking Along

Today I’m combining some of my favourite Online Exclusive products to create this card inspired by the sketch at Global Design Project Challenge #406. I love the simple style of this sketch which can be interpreted in so many ways.

I’ve used the Trucking Along bundle along with the One Horse Open Sleigh Designer Series Paper for a cute Christmas card. The scenic paper really needs very little (if any) added. You could just put a sentiment and the paper will carry the project.

I used the Radiating Stitches dies (oh that’s another one of our Online Exclusive products) to die cut the scene and then added the truck laden with presents on top. An extra layer of embossed Early Espresso Cardstock breaks up the blues and adds a contrast, picking up the trees in the foreground.

The snow was die cut from a piece of embossed White cardstock which I had laying around and I thought it added lovely texture. The Basic 3D Embossing Folders come in a pack of 3 different designs, one of which was used here.

I hope you have enjoyed this project and please check out your favourite products in the Online Exclusive products which are available while supplies last.

Our September – December Mini Catalogue is currently being distributed. If you live in Australia and would like a copy, please complete your details below. Complete list of products used can be found below. Orders can be placed online or by contacting me.
