Hello crafty friends! Im very excited to share my new Penguin Palace project with you. I made a big bold Sushi Food Truck, and I love how it turned out. I combined two of the recently released sets to create my truck. I used The Sweetest Truck and Never Give Up stamp sets and matching dies. I used the super awesome Dots Meets Dashes dies to create my layers.
I started by masking my ice cream truck. I didn’t want the ice cream cones, so I easily stamped the truck onto a post it note and fussy cut the ice cream cones. I arranged them on paper where the would be stamped, and stamped on top of them. When I removed the post it note, there was a blank space left behind. Next I used a Copic Multiliner in size .3 and a ruler to draw in the lines of the truck. Finally, I arranged strips of the leftover post it notes to mask the area beyond the truck, and stamped the Sushi images.
I stamped the remainder of my images and colored them using bright bold primary colors. Next, I die cut all of my images, and used small white dots to highlight. I cut all of my layers from colored cardstock and inked the edges to give some texture and depth. I assemble my truck images and adhered them to the top of the grass layer. Then I cut the stitched sentiment letters from plain white cardstock. I printed the rest of the sentiment using my home printer, and hand cut the banner.
I used a strip of washi tape to make temporary guide lines before applying the letters. I wanted them to be straight and centered. Then I glued down the soy sauce and wasabi to fill in the bottom. I really love how this turned out and all the possibilities that I could create in future cards!
