Ice Cream is the one thing I don’t think I could live without. There I said it. It’s my “feel good”, because everything is better with Ice Cream! My grandfather used to say that little saying when I was little all the time – “I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream!”.
We All Scream For Ice Cream!
This is a sneak peek of one of the adorable Stamp Sets that will be available for free in the Sale-A-Bration Catalog. Sale-A-Bration begins tomorrow, January 4th, at Stampin’ Up! This is a special event each year when they not only introduce their Spring Catalog, but for every $50 spent, you get to choose one free item from the Sale-A-Bration Catalog.
I chose this particular set because it offers a lot of options to use the Watercolor Pencils. Also, it’s an adorable stamp set. You can make this truck into several different types of food trucks. Besides the cupcakes I show, it can be an ice cream truck, a hot dog truck, a taco truck, or a pancake truck. There are also several other sentiments to choose from.
One thing I love about this sentiment is how versatile it is. You can make this card into a thinking of you, happy birthday, or thank you type of card.
For this particular project, I used the Watercolor Pencils, available starting tomorrow January 4th in the the Occasions Catalog. I went with a somewhat lighter touch, using the colors Melon Mambo and Bermuda Bay for the main colors. Then Basic Black, Real Red, and Daffodil Delight, Pacific Point, Early Espresso, and Pumpkin Pie for all the other fill-in objects and cupcakes. I then used to blender pens to smooth out and move the color around.
I then made a second truck with the same color watercolor pencils. However, this time I used more pressure on the pencils to give it a more vibrant color. I did change-up the cupcake colors in this one with Daffodil Delight as the base color of the cupcake, with cupcake tops in Calypso Coral, Pacific Point, and Real Red.
IT ALL STARTS TOMORROW, JAN. 4. The Stampin’ Up! Occasions Catalog will launch and Sale-A-Bration begins!
