Delivering Trucks of Love


Good Morning, Marnie here with a bit of a technique card.  You know how sometimes you have an idea but it's not quite cooked?  Well this was half cooked idea then I was sitting chatting with my kiddos and BAM crazy how fast the completed idea comes and I had to get up and do it right away before I forgot.  I dug through my drawers and found my furnace tape and my Alcohol Inks and colored up a piece of tape with a yellow/gold color.  I then cut out 3 of the Dump Trucks.  With a Black copic I carefully colored the outside of the wheels and set them aside.  Then came the background piece which was sponged with brown, green and blue Distress ink to create an outdoor scene.  Using the Happy Arrows Stencil I created a sign by stenciling Distress Ink over it outlining it in black ink and cutting it out.   The brown is just a couple of handcut strips of brown cardstock and the sign is stuck on top to create the sign posts.   At this point one truck get cut in half so that it can be dumping some of the hearts on the ground. Then the Dump Trucks are stuck down and a ton of hearts are cut with the Heart of Hearts Die and put into the back of the trucks.  Hope you like it I am totally excited by the metal trucks!   This would be a fun fun Boy Card you could put all kinds of things in the truck.

Marnie this is adorable! I love it!

This is absolutely amazing!! LOVE the trucks and the background is awesome!
I have had ideas that have come about in this same way! I have been known to wake up at 3 am and run to my craft room to try an idea that I dreamt (?) about! Hubby has gotten used to waking up to find me gone and knows exactly where to find me! LOL

Marnie I love this card, especially as I won the Happy Arrows stencil in the blog blitz.

I love the way you merged the alcohol inks to get some fabulous colours.

Thanks for the inspiration


Just got the Truck die...must find some metallic tape:)
GREAT card!

Very cool and great for a "guy" card...not too frilly or floral or pink!!!

My guy is a dump truck guy! Where do I get the die for the dump truck? This is great! Thanks,

Way cool, great idea, love it.
