Trucking Along - making some great cards with this cute truck stamp and punch

 Suitable for young and old - this Truck stamp

Is part of the Trucking Along bundle from Stampin' Up! It has some great 'loads' that the truck can carry, including a Christmas Tree, a stack of presents, plants, a palm tree and surfboard and some sunflowers. There is a matching punch too, so no fussy cutting of the truck is needed.

Add in some trees, the truck of course, clouds and road and you have a very versatile stamp set indeed. All of the items have co-ordinating filler stamps, or you can colour the images themselves if you prefer.

You can see above, my first example, using the presents and the sunflowers, with that lovely Gingham paper behind the Scalloped die. These are layered on standard sized A6 cards, so the Gingham layer measures 10cm x 14.35cm.  You can see the video on the basic card by clicking on the photo above.

It was our #stampsetoftheweek, so was used at coffee and card for all 3 sessions.

Of course, I had to make a Christmas version, using the popular One Horse Open Sleigh papers for the background. These papers are just perfect to have something placed in front of them. I took the colour inspiration from the marina Mist backing paper.

Although we made many cards with this bundle during the week, my final card was my favourite, using the Flying Seagull card design from Susan Campfield, a demonstrator in the USA. I converted the sizing for UK cards. You can see the full video of how to make this card in the video below.

There are some usedful sentiments in the stamp set too. The papers and the bundle are from our Online Exclusive range - you won't see them in a printed catalogue.

Full product details can be found below; don't forget that the bundle price saves you 10% on the individual prices.
