Tasty Trucks Sale-a-Bration Special... You're the Sweetest

Here's a super-fun card for you today!!

I knew we'd have to make this card at our Sneak Peek Event (which was held last week) as soon as I saw it on Pinterest - thanks so much to Louise Sharp for her inspiration on this card!

We start our card with a Bermuda Bay card base, then added a layer of Whisper White card stock, followed by another layer of Bermuda Bay card stock.  Before adding the top 2 layers to our card, we tied some Whisper White Baker's Twine around them and made a bow - it's a simple touch, but works so well on this card!

Whisper White Baker's Twine  124262  $3.00


Next, we added a piece of the Festive Designer Series Paper (the Pumpkin Pie dotted piece in the background), along with a piece of Melon Mambo card stock layered with a piece of Shimmery White card stock - lots of layers to this card!

Festive Designer Series Paper  141630  $11.00

Shimmery White Card Stock  101910  $8.00

Ok, now for the real fun....

We stamped that awesome food truck stamp (have I told you that I'm kind of obsessed with food trucks?? - it may have started on our trip to Hawaii a couple of years ago - I just love the concept! - if only we had a fish taco truck in Alma - I'd be in heaven!)..

So, seriously now...

We stamped our food truck (from the Tasty Trucks Sale-a-Bration stamp set (FREE with a $50 order now thru March 31!) and ice cream cone in Basic Black Archival ink.

Next, we stamped "You're the Sweetest" in Melon Mambo ink (also from the Tasty Trucks Stamp Set).

Then, we grabbed our Blender Pens and Bermuda Bay, Pumpkin Pie, Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight ink pads and shaded in our food truck with these fun, bright colors.

Here's a great video from Stampin' Up on how to use the Blender Pens...

Finally, we colored in the wheels of our food truck with a Basic Black Marker.
