Ways to Use a Happy Old Truck

Today's challenge on Splitcoast Stampers is the Way to Use it Challenge, and today it is called Get Packing!

"You can use packing/shipping products such as bubblewrap, shipping tags, packing tape (how about glitter window or packing tape transfer), even tissue paper. OR...spin the challenge the other way and use a travel theme such as luggage tags, vacation themed stamps etc. This challenge is wide-open for interpretation so have fun with it!"

I chose to focus on the last sentence!! Interpret!
This is my interpretation for travel......The Classic Pickup Truck!

This stamp is available from Little Paper Shop and is one of many trucks and equipment stamps they have over there. Super duper for manly cards (but I like them too!)

I coloured the old truck with copics and used glossy accents that I bought at The Paper Pickle, for the windows and headlights - love that stuff!

I used SU! chocolate chip for my card base and Basic Grey Archaic for the pattern paper.

The sentiment is from Little Paper Shop All Occasions set, which has 27 stamps and a bazillion ways to use them!!

Quite a simple card to make really, but perfect for Father's Day as sometimes men are, oops, I mean enjoy, simple things!! a wee Freudian slip.......


  1. Now that's a real man's card!!
    Any man would love this card,I love the paper,the sketch and that stamp rocks! My husband loves old trucks!!!

  2. What a perfect card for Father's Day, love the image and your coloring and that paper, everything about this card is fantastic.

  3. Love your old pick up truck! You did such a great job on the windows! Perfect for FD's! Take care! Deb

  4. Super the glossy effects on the windows (I wish I had some)! And my BG paper...I wish I hadn't given mine to my SIL!

  5. That paper is perfect for this truck! The windows look great to.

  6. Great stuff.
