Tasty Trucks + Suite Sentiments - Fancy Friday Blog Hop

Yay it's hop time again with my Fancy Friends. Our theme today is 'just because'. So basically anything goes! If you've been following us for a while, you'll notice our signage update. We're looking spiffy and new BUT we're the same group of past and present Artisans with lots of inspiration to see :) Thanks for stopping by!

I've seen a lot of awesome coloured in food trucks from our Sale-A-Bration Tasty Trucks stamp set (FREE with NZD$110 order at my Stampin' Up! shop). It's just the cutest! But if colouring isn't your thing or you're pressed for time, the truck itself makes a great background too! Maximum effect for minimum effort! I reckon this design in a few different colour ways could be brilliant to build up your stash of go-to cards for the year too.

Weather Together Beach Card
Being in the middle of summer here in New Zealand, I'd like to share with you my beach take on the Weather Together stamp set.

Hot Tips:
1) For the umbrella fringe: Simply cut an extra umbrella in Whisper White, stick it on the back of your coloured one slightly downward and snip all along. Easy as!
2) Use our new Watercolor Pencils (Bermuda Bay here) to shade a background on Shimmery White Paper. Paint over top of it with an Aqua Painter and let dry. Use the black Watercolor Pencil to draw the sea gulls.
3) Stick the umbrella handle framelit cut out upside down to make the pointed tip of the beach umbrella.
4) Layers are 9cm / 3 1/2" square.

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Weather Together
Inks: Flirty Flamingo, Memento Tuxedo Black
Papers: Whisper White Thick, Bermuda Bay, Shimmery White, Peekaboo Peach, Whisper White, Copper Foil Sheets
Accessories/Tools: Big Shot Machine, Umbrella Weather Framelits Dies, Snips, Affectionately Yours Designer Washi Tape
