Looking for a fun handmade card idea? This card using the Trucking Along stamp set from Stampin’ Up may be perfect for you! I’ll show you how to stamp a scene for you card and create something beautiful!
To start this card, you’ll need the Trucking Along stamp set. This set is a 2 step stamp set meaning 2 stamps create 1 beautiful image. This stamp set has 26 photopolymer stamps and coordinates with the Trucking Along Builder Punch. The punch is currently unavailable until October.
While I did use it for this project, you certainly don’t have to! You could stamp the truck right on your scene and use a mask to cover it or you could fussy cut it out!
To start building our scene, I used Garden Green and Balmy Blue inks with a Blending Brush to add some color for the grass and the sky onto Basic White cardstock. I then stamped a few clouds in the sky and some detail in the grass.
The truck is stamped in Crushed Curry, a color I don’t use very often but absolutely love for this truck! I used Memento Ink for the outline of the truck and the lines on the ground under it. Basic Gray would work as well if that is what you have.
I loved the plaid design from the Let’s Go Fishing Designer Series Paper for this card. The colors in the paper are Mossy Meadow and Wild Wheat. I love how they are subtle enough to make the truck stand out.
The measurements for this card are:
- Very Vanilla cardbase- 5½” by 8½” scored at 4¼”
- Let’s Go Fishing DSP- 5¼” by 4″
- Mossy Meadow- 4⅝” by 3⅜”
- Basic White- 4½” by 3¼”
To finish this card, I added a few Very Vanilla Matte Dots to the bottom. You can make this card completely your own or copy it exactly! Experiment with different ink colors, try various patterned papers, and don’t be afraid to add your personal flair.
I hope this card has inspired you to get crafty. Handmade cards are more than just paper and ink; they help spread smilesto those we care about. So let the Trucking Along stamp set help you spread joy, love, and a touch of rustic farm charm. Happy Stamping!Product List
