Hey friends! Are you ready for some TRY DAY FRIDAY fun? We cannot wait to share with you what Shannon created last Friday (March 30) live on our Facebook page. Try Day Friday is exactly what the name would imply – trying new ideas, techniques or products live on Facebook. Then, you can take away ideas from the video and have fun yourself.
This week Shannon used a brand new stamp set from our newest mini catalog Celebrating Life’s Moments. There are so many fun products included in the catalog, including this set Shannon used in this card, Happy Adventure. Let’s talk about the process Shannon used to create the card!
None of the techniques are difficult, but there are a few steps. There’s stamping of the background with our Flannel Life stamp set using Bubble Gum True Color Fusion Ink on Whip Cream cardstock and stamping the truck FOUR times on Pool Play and Whip Cream cardstock.
That’s just the beginning! Now, let’s do a touch of coloring on the flowers in the back of the truck using Journey Color Burst Pencils. You don’t have to get too crazy on the blue backgrounds. In fact, you’ll only color one of the floral truck beds and really only in the center. Then, you’ll do the same on one of the the Whip Cream stamped trucks.
This is where you’re going to need your Details Pro Shears for some fussy cutting. One Cool Pool truck you’ll cut out the entire truck. The other, you’ll cut out only the tailgate. In the white, cut one back window out. Now, let’s assemble these pieces together! Using foam squares attach the tailgate cut out onto the entire truck. Now that vintage vehicle has some dimension. Using your Easy Glide Permanent Adhesive Runner, attach the window over the window of the whole truck. Now, you’re ready for all of the real fun.
We’re going to punch out a punch worth of flowers using the Summer Pretties Punch Cartridge from Cool Pool Cardstock and Orange Creamsicle cardstock. We’ll roll up the edges using our Bloom Tool to give our truck and flowers more dimension! Using our Journey Glue Dots, we’ll attach 5 or 6 of these pretties near the outside of tailgate. We’ll also add a couple of our Sweet Blooms and Patootie Bursts for variety. Speaking of variety, let’s give our Pretties some centers using our Fashion Gold. Love that little bit of sparkle!
With our truck all ready to go, it’s time to assemble. Simply stamp your sentiment on a Whip Cream cardstock cut with our Journey Circles Die and layer with the truck. What’s left? A little Bubble Gum Silk, some Candy Dots and a Mini Wooden Clothespin. Add a bit of Bubble Gum Journey Thread and you have a beautiful card. Don’t you agree?
