A Taco Truck — FMS274

We have a new sketch for you over at the Freshly Made Sketches site today.  Our favorite Canadian, Jen Brum, is our hostess this week and take a look at this fun sketch:


I love the cute food truck image in the Tasty Trucks stamp set, which is one of the free Sale-a-Bration offerings.  One of the many benefits of living in Texas is that we have access to many delicious taco options, as well as Mexican and Tex-Mex food in general.  One of our favorite taco places is a small little store in a Shell gas station not far from our house, which is run by a local family.  There is just one big table at which to sit and eat your food, so most people just get their tacos to go or sit and eat with whoever else is there.  They are just like street tacos and are delicious.  Stamping this food truck made me wish they had a taco truck and would come down our street everyday at lunch time.  Yum!

taco-truckI started by stamping the cute little tacos on the Pool Party card base.  I then stamped the truck on some watercolor paper and colored it with an aquapainter and blender pen using my ink pads (Daffodil Delight, Rich Razzleberry, Smoky Slate, and Crumb Cake).

I added a little ribbon and black metallic thread, as well as some black Baker’s Twine.  Pretty easy!

taco-truck-close-upWe hope you’ll join us and make your own card using the sketch!  We love to see what you create!  Meanwhile be sure to stop by the Freshly Made Sketches site to see what the design team has created for your viewing pleasure.

Enjoy your Wednesday!  Thanks for stopping by!

Cupcake Truck — Monday Montage #84


Welcome to another Monday Montage blog hop!  We are a group of ten stampers who love to share what we create with you, and all you have to do to follow along is click on the links at the bottom of each post.

Even though I’m still woefully behind on my Christmas to-do list and should be entirely focused on that, I received my pre-order box of Occasions catalog and Sale-a-Bration items and couldn’t resist playing with just a little bit of it.  These catalogs won’t be live until January 4, but I thought I’d give you a sneak peek.

One of the items I was so excited to break open was the Watercolor Pencils.  And there is the cutest set in the Sale-a-Bration catalog, Tasty Trucks, that is perfect for coloring.  This set will be a free item with any $50 purchase.

cupcake-truckThese new pencils are so easy to blend.  I used a blender pen for this, but an aqua painter works well too.

A sheet from the Cupcakes & Carousels stack was used for the background.  This paper will be available in the upcoming Occasions catalog on January 4.

cupcake-truck-close-upThis is such a fun stamp set.  I love how you can customize this cute truck with lots of tasty treats.  Wouldn’t a cupcake truck be awesome if it came down your street?!?  It’s probably a good thing we don’t have one.

You’re ready to hop on over to Breelin Renwick’s blog.  I always love seeing what she makes!  If you prefer to work your way backwards, you can jump back to Wendy Weixler’s blog.  Either way, be sure to work your way through all of the blogs so you don’t miss a thing.





Enjoy your Monday!  Thanks for stopping by!
