I LOVE how this card turned out. I hope you do too. I used a lot of different stamps on this card but to me it was worth it. Don’t fret, there is a video as well.
I used Cool Pool (CS-0118) for the card base and added a Black Licorice (CS-003) card panel to the front. On a Whip Cream (CS-0040) I stamped the following images:
Ink Splat (AT-0108) stamp to make the dirt. I stamped the smaller end into Oatmeal Cookie (IP-0011) and stamped it onto the card panel. I cleaned the stamp and then stamped it in Hazelnut Blend (IP-0012) and offset the stamping a bit to give it more of a 2 tone dirt look.
Trees (from the Fresh Forest Stamp Set (SS-0487) = the large one was stamped in Kiwi Slice (IP-0024) ink, stamped off on a scrap sheet of paper before being stamped onto the card panel. The small one was stamped in Kiwi Slice (IP-X0024 and then stamped directly onto the card panel.
Sunshine (My Sunshine ATS (AT-0286) = was stamped in Lemon Drop (IP-0043) ink, stamped off on a scrap sheet of paper before being stamped onto the card panel.
I used the decorative Circle images from the Sunday Morning Stamp Set (SS-0570) in Cool Pool (IP-0074) ink. On a scrap piece of Whip Cream card stock, I stamped the circle images before stamping the Scenic Route sentiment (AT-0287) in Black Licorice ink. The ends were flagged before adhering it to the panel. I used a piece from the Sweet Romance Tape (AC-0290) [this is a Bloom Benefit that you can get free with an order of $100 or more].
The truck came from the Happy Adventure (SS-0565) stamp set and was stamped in Black Licorice ink. I used a Blending Brush (TO-0098) and some splashes to color in the truck. Watermelon Fusion Splash (IP-0083) to color in the tail lights. Shimmer Silver Splash (IP-0082) was used to color in the bumper and Cool Pool Splash (IP-0076) was used to color in the truck. I used Just Write Gels (JD-0060) to color in the flowers in the truck bed. Using the Detail Pro Shears (TO-0063), I cut out the truck and popped it up onto the card front using Foam Squares (AD-0085).
The inside sentiment comes from the Happy Sentiments (SS-0304) stamp set and was stamped in Black Licorice ink onto a Whip Cream panel.
I’d love to hear your thoughts on this project.

The card front was made by using our Gel Press (JM-0107),Brayer (TO-0087) Cool Pool Splash (IP-0076), Shimmer Gold Splash(IP-0081) and Whip Cream Acrylic Paint (JM-0106).[I learned this technique on the Fun Stampers Journey – Try-day Friday post on Facebook]. After that dried I adhered it to a Pool Play (CS-0092) card base. The I added a strip of Kiwi Slice (CS-0016).
The truck came from the Happy Adventure (SS-0565) stamp set [definitely on my top 10 list] and was stamped in Black Licorice (IP-0041) ink onto a piece of Whip Cream cardstock. I colored the truck in using Pineapple Smoothie Splash (IP-0080), Shimmer Silver Splash (IP-0082) and a Blending Brush (TO-0097) with water in the barrel. The flowers in the truck were colored in with Just Write Gels (JD-0060). I popped that up on the card front using Foam Squares (AD-0085).
Using Lemon Drop (CS-0018) cardstock and the Journey Circles (DI-0039) I cut out the sun and stamped the sentiment from the Blue Skies (SS-0574) stamp set in Black Licorice ink. The clouds were cut out of Whip Cream (CS-0040) card stock using the Cloud Dreams (DI-0032) dies. Those were popped up using Foam Squares. I added a Whip Cream Thread (AC-0128) bow to the sun and the card was finished.
