A Truck Load for all Seasons (quick step by step)

A Truck Load Scene Card Step-by-Step

I had a number of people on other card making sites ask how did I make the Truck Load Fall card … so I stamped a second Spring card and took step-by-step photos of the layers which I hope will help break it down.

Springtime Truck with tulips and Birch trees

Stamps to make this card: Birch Trees Multi-Step Clear Stamps, Classic Old Truck Multi-Step Clear Stamps, Trees Multi-Step Clear StampsRolling Hills Multi-Step Clear Stampsand Bitty Tulips Bouquet Multi-Step Clear Stamps from Kitchen Sink Stamps.

Step-by-Step Truck Load of Spring Card using Kitchen Sink Stamps and the MISTI 

Start with a piece of white cardstock 4.25″ x 5.5″ [NOTE: Check YouTube for additional information using the MISTI) and first stamp with Birch Trees Multi-Step Stamps.

birch-tree-leaves-line-up

Add a 1″ to 1.5″ strip of cardstock to the left side of the stamped tree. This gives a defined edge to push your “working” 4.25″ x 5.5″ piece of cardstock up against for aligning future stamps while stamping beyond (see birch leaves fall off 4.25″ x 5.5″ card stock.

Place cardstock strip and working cardstock in the lower left corner of MISTI.

A Truck Load for all Seasons part 3

Memories of Spring

Today’s card uses all the same stamps as Summer Time and Fall Time cards … except I swapped the apples & pumpkins from the Harvest set for the flowers in the Bicycle set. To create a “Spring” color scheme, I switched the background tree so I could stamp a “flowering tree”. Saturated the ground to look like fresh new grass (greener than summer) … and a truck bed full of yellow flowers.

Baby, it’s COLD outside…

… but we’re cooking in the Kitchen with 6 new stamp sets available to order/pre-order starting today!

After a week of peeks, it is time to unveil what new stamps I have cooked up for you. My first card includes 4 out of the 6 new stamp sets, to create a serene winter scene. 

Snowmen aren’t just for Christmas… right? The snowy pine trees have grown as a cluster, but shrank in their size – LOL … perfect for adding snowy pine trees off on the horizon. The little skier can be found in the stamp set,

Multi-Step Snowy Cabin Clear Stamps.

Peaceful Greetings from Kitchen Sink Stamps

I always get super excited when I design a stamp set that has multiple purposes …

like this set Multi-Step Rolling Hills Clear Stamps. It can be used to create snowy slopes or a grassy hillside.

But wait…there’s more!

By using step #3 again as an “embellishment” (VersaMark and red glittery embossing powder)… now those rolling green hills have a patch of poppies!  YaHooo!
