I ❤️ trucks and Christmas!

Every year I break out this stamp of a classic truck with a tree in the box. It’s my favorite Christmas stamp and I bought it for two dollars second hand in a little craft shop in Lunenburg Nova Scotia maybe six years ago. It reminds me of the charm of that beautiful place.

So I will be linking a video! I’m determined to get it done and to begin doing them on a regular basis.

I began with the truck added Marina mist (Stampin up)card stock for a base cut at 5.5×4.25 side fold. I adore the new Tim Holtz Christmas Paper particularly the plaid and I cut a piece at 5.25×4. I used a die cut to cut a piece of Whisper white (Stampin up).

From here I stamped my image with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copic markers. You can use any colors experiment with different ones. I don’t think there would be a wrong choice. In the past I’ve colored them with; stampin up pens with a blender pen, water colors even pencil crayons.

I went on to add a shadow with the neutral grey Copic and of course Gel pen highlights. I distressed everything with Chocolate Chip(Stampin up) and began the inside.

On the inside I used an older French Stampin up Set and stamped the sentiment in Marina Mist on a Whisper white die cut. I sponged the edges and added it to the inside using Tombow Mono multi.

I put the front together using both Tombow Mono and foam tape.

A few others I made last week just for ideas…
