Now that you know exactly how you can play along, let's look at some projects! The first card I have for you today features the new set Dump Truck Birthday. I created this one for our youngest grandson. He just turned 5 last week!
I started out with a 5.5 x 4.25 black card stock base and added a white mat. I chose a simple black and white polka dotted DP for the base and added stamped images (caution tape and warning sign). Both of those were stamped on goldenrod colored CS. I stamped my focal image on Copic compatible paper and colored it to resemble one of his favorite toys. I didn't want everything to look perfectly plumb. Little boys like things to be a bit more haphazard! lol
Here's the stamp set I used...
And if tractors are his thing...
I couldn't give this card to my little guy. He favors a certain green and gold colored tractor! I on the other hand, grew up with a certain blue tractor on our family farm... makes for entertaining dinner conversations... lol...
and here's the set you see here, I Dig You.
Now don't forget to visit all of my fellow "Coasters" and comment along the way! And please stop back by this week to see several more projects I have to share! Thanks so much for reading and commenting!
