SUOC165 Tasty Trucks

Time for another SUO Challenge!  This time our theme is New Year, New Stuff…and I have lots of new things waiting for me to play with!  I always over estimate the amount of time I have before and during the holidays to play…another else like that?  But…I have done some swaps and blog hops…and done a little playing with my new things.


Here’s a card using a fun new stamp set, Tasty Trucks, in the Sale-A-Bration catalog…you can spend $50 and get this stamp set FREE!  What a deal!



Here are the details:

  • The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Basic Gray, scored at 4-1/4 and folded.
  • On top is a 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Smoky Slate cardstock that was embossed with the Hexagons Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder.  LOVE the deep impression it makes!
  • A 2 x 4 piece of Urban Underground Designer Paper with silver metallic Xs was added across the front.
  • Then a 2-3/4 x 3 piece of polka dot pattern cut with a 1 x 4 piece of the opposite side added to the bottom, then adhere to the front.
  • The truck was stamped with Memento Black Ink on Whisper White, then watercolored with an AquaPainter and Smoky Slate, Basic Gray, Basic Black and Delightful Dijon Markers.
  • The tacos were stamped with Memento Black and watercolored also, then cut out and added in the “window” of the truck.
  • The greeting from the same Tasty Trucks stamp set was stamped with Memento Black Ink in the window.


I think this would make a great masculine birthday card!  Can’t wait to give it away!  My New Year’s resolution is to SEND the cards I actually make!


OK…check out the rest of the SUO Challenge Design Team over on SUO Challenges website to see what they did with the challenge this week!

Really cute card! I am the same way. I haven’t made a card in quite a while. I am currently blaming the puzzle we have going. Forgot how addictive they are.
This little set is the first on my SAB list.
