Just Moved....well, gunna...

Ok, what is this set NOT good for??? Do you not just LoVe LOADS of LOVE by Stampin' Up!! I got the idea to add part of the truck in the back for a trailer from someone on Splitcoaststampers a while back. Can't remember who, but it stuck in my head. I had to add an extra yet. And count all the kids!!! I think this card turned out totally cute with all the children peeking out around the packed up stuff! We aren't moving for a couple months yet, but thought I would play around with an idea or two. This one is adorable, but took a lot of time. A lot of cutting out. Fine for a card, but for many more?? Hmmm. Not so sure about that. I stamped the truck on Buckaroo Blue three times, three times on white too for the bumpers. Stamped the girl out twice, the boy out 6 times! Three sets of furnishings. The family and furnishings were colored in with markers, and of cut out. ( now that I have the layout, if I were to make more of these, I think I could just stamp directly on the sketch and then mask over the kids or what ever image is in front) I punched out the wheels out of black paper with the 3/4 " circle punch. The insides of the wheels were punched out of the Buckaroo Blue. I had colored them in with white gel pen first. Dots were added to the truck with the Gel Pen too. The sky was brayered with Soft Sky and then Buckaroo Blue. The road is Creamy Caramel. I added doodling with Chocolate Chip on the road, and Brocade Blue around the top of the sky. The background paper is from the retired SSK Travel Time. I think this background paper is perfect. You can't see from the front, but the back of the card is full of route signs from a highway. Sure, we are moving just 3 miles away, but still! It is cute!! And it is a HUGE move for us! Very exciting.
Anyway! This was todays creation. Yesterdays wasn't so hot. I won't be posting that!! Hope you all like this one!
Happy Stampin'

WOW--what a great idea! Love the way you loaded up with kids peeking out too. I've used this set, but never thought of splitting it up like that to make the trailers, although I did use brads for the wheel hubs.

So glad I have your blog bookmarked. Check mine out sometime!
