Happy 14th Birthday! A Cool Truck for a Cool Kid :-)

Hi Stampers! 

Time sure flies by and my nephew will be 14 in a few days!  We will be celebrating his birthday this weekend and I wanted to share the card I created for him using the CQC224 ColourQ Challenge along with the Seize the Sketch STS#11 Sketch and the Seize the Birthday 2014 #2 Challenge option “Coloring”.   

Again, I hope that you have had a chance to check out all three sites- wonderful examples from all!

To create this card (I chose to use MDS but you could stamp the images versus print):

In My Digital Studio (MDS), open a blank 8.5 x 11 custom page and insert the truck and sentiment images to be printed- the truck is from Countryside and the sentiment is from Hugs and Wishes.  Arrange the images on the blank page leaving room for cutting out by hand, etc. ( I generally fill the page with additional images before I print on my printer).

Print out onto Whisper White cardstock and color the truck image using Stampin’ Write markers in Pool Party and adding shadows with the AquaPainter™ and Island Indigo Classic Ink.  Color the apples using the retired Poppy Parade Stampin’ Write marker, the shadows under the truck using the Basic Gray Stampin’ Write marker.  Add a few shadows using the Sahara Sand Stampin’ Write marker. 

Use the Big Shot™ with the Deco Labels Framelits™ to cut out the truck image along with another label the same size from retired Poppy Parade cardstock.  Using your trimmer, cut the truck image and the Poppy Parade cardstock Deco label in half and adhere the truck image onto the top half of the Poppy Parade label (trim off the points of the Poppy Parade label before adhering the focal image).   Add the lower half of the Poppy Parade Deco Label and use the retired Color Spritzer Tool to add distressing with the Basic Gray Stampin’ Write marker. 

Use the Big Shot™ with the Chevron Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of Pool Party cardstock, the Square Lattice Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of Island Indigo cardstock and the Herringbone Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss a scrap piece of Basic Gray cardstock. 

Mount the embossed Pool Party onto a piece of retired Poppy Parade cardstock.  Add the embossed layer of Island Indigo cardstock at the bottom and adhere the focal image.

Trim the Basic Gray embossed layer and add the banner points using the Hexagon Punch.  Adhere the trimmed strip of I Am Designer Series Paper (DSP)- also using the Hexagon Punch to create the banner and add the entire layered banner onto the card, covering the seam of the Deco Label and Island Indigo.

Use the Big Shot™ with the Typeset Alphabet Bigz™ Die to cut out the one and four from Poppy Parade cardstock.
Add the sentiment and numbers using Stampin’ Dimensionals™ to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets:  Countryside, Hugs and Wishes- all MDS versions

Ink: Printer Ink- Black, Stampin’ Write markers- Basic Gray, Island Indigo, Sahara Sand, retired Poppy Parade

Paper: Whisper White, Pool Party, Island Indigo, Basic Gray, I Am Me DSP, retired Poppy Parade

Accessories:  Big Shot™, Deco Labels Framelits™, Typeset Alphabets Bigz™ Die, Chevron, Herringbone, Square Lattice Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folders, XL Oval Punch, retired Color Spritzer Tool

Thanks again for stopping by!  Hope you have a wonderful weekend (I know we will :-))- God Bless!
