Today I’m sharing an old rusty truck card made using the new Rubbernecker Stamps Old Flatbed Truck paired with the Small Birds and framed using the Nested Deckle Rectangle and Nested Rectangle sets. The tree trunk was stamped using the Fall Tree #2 and the tree top and flowers in the grass were made using the mini fern stamp from the Kittie Kits Outdoor Master. I used the Life Changing Blender Brushes to add a base of color for the sky and grass area. I made this card for the Splitcoaststampers Ways to Use It Challenge to create a card with an image of something that uses gasoline.
The Scene Base
- Apply Shabby Shutters ink to the ground and Tumbled Glass ink to the sky area using blender brushes.
- Secure the tree trunk stamp and cardstock in the MISTI.
- Apply Antique Linen ink to the stamp and stamp on the cardstock.
- Fill in the trunk and branches using Vintage Photo ink to the trunk and branches using a damp brush.
- Fill in the tree top using Peeled Paint ink and a blender brush.
- Stamp the mini fern image multiple times using Peeled Paint ink to fill in and add texture.
- Apply different colors of flowers to the grass area using the mini fern stamp and Rusty Hinge, Fired Brick and Spiced Marmalade ink.
- Cut the white deckle layer using the largest die from the set.
- Line up the rectangle die on the white layer and run through the machine to cut the frame opening.
- Apply strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame and attach it to the card base.
The Rusty Truck
- Cut the truck body using green cardstock, the truck bed rails using woodgrain cardstock and the truck bed and tires using black cardstock.
- Apply Rusty Hinge ink to the truck body and wheels using a mini applicator.
- Attach the fender to the truck body using a strip of rolled up double stick tape.
- Use double stick tape to secure the door in place.
- Attach the truck bed and rails to the truck using glossy accents.
- Apply glossy accents to the tires and attach them to the truck.
- Apply pieces of mounting tape to the back of the truck and attach it to the card base.
- Use red cardstock to cut the small birds.
- Apply small pieces of mounting tape to the back of each bird and attach them to the card base and frame to finish the scene.
I think this old rusty truck card will be a perfect masculine card for a birthday or other special occasion. It is always a little more difficult to come up with card ideas for men.
