Throwback Thursday – Classic Pick-Up Trucks

I live in a house full of men.  Yeah, sounds great, but sometimes not so much.  But I love them, even down to their grease monkey ways.

When Stampin’ Up! has a car-themed stamp set, I am usually ordering it right away.

Classic Pick-Ups is a stamp set from the early 2000s, and I still have it.  When my boys were younger and wanted to make me really happy, they would create birthday cards for their dad and other brothers with this set.  Here is an example of one of our creations:

Now Guy Greetings has a great classic car in the set.  Some stampers have a tough time with this stamp set as there are some images that are not easy to work a card around.  Try using the stamp set with a collage format, and you will love it.

However, I kind of stuck to the same type of image – the Model T.  Of course now we have my all-time favorite tool, the Big Shot.  Lots of Labels framelit set and silver paper help this card pop more this time around.

Snowman Framelits Card

This week was my last Technique Tuesday of the year.  The Weekly Deals featured the Snowman framelits (without the Snow Place stamp set).  I wanted to show a card using the framelits WITHOUT the stamp set so I came up with this card:

Technique Tuesday-Color Me Ink Wash Card with Snow Friends Framelits

Technique Tuesday-Color Me Ink Wash Card with Snow Friends Framelits

Ok, so the card did use the phrase from the stamp set, but that was it!  The technique was an Aquapainter wash using the Color Me Irresistible designer series paper.  We learned the technique at the OnStage Local event held in Milwaukee the previous weekend.

Color combination is Whisper White, Basic Black, Pool Party, and Island Indigo.

Winter has finally arrived in Wisconsin…snow is lovely, but drive safe everyone!
