IB92 Truck Full of Pumpkins

Happy Thursday, peeps!  It's time for another Inspired By challenge--Laurel always comes up with beautiful inspiration photos!  Here's my take on her challenge today:  a truck full of pumpkins!

And here is her inspiration:


The vintage truck theme is wildly popular these days, but usually it's a RED truck, so I was excited to see this tan truck!!  My mind immediately went to the old SU stamp called Loads of Love, but apparently, I got rid of the Accessories set, which had pumpkins in it!  So I turned to another set called had a perfect vintage truck, but it had the word "apples" on the tailgate and the baskets inside are full of apples...SO....I need you all to put on your imagination hats and pretend that these apples are actually those little baby can do it!!  Check it out:

I began by stamping my truck with Stazon ink on SU's watercolor paper and using my aquapainter to color it in.  I cut a little scrap piece to fit over the tailgate to hide the word apples...betcha couldn't tell that from the photo, could you?  It blended very well!   After watercoloring it, I diecut it with a Nested Label die, then added a sentiment from an old Impressions Obsession stamp and diecut it as well:

I mounted it on a piece of woodgrain paper, then on a Pear Pizzazz card, and stamped an image and sentiment on the inside:

I am also entering this in Happy Little Stamper's October watercolor challenge!!  

I need lots of masculine birthday cards this month and I am really low, so this will go into my stash!  I hope this fun photo will challenge you to make a card too--share it with us at the Inspired By blog!  See you there!  And thanks for popping in today!

So here's the outfit for Wacky Wednesday (and the wacky ham that's wearing it!):

And the wacky hair:

 Enjoy your day and be blessed!

There it is!!! NO imagination necessary, LeAnne!! I LOVE those tiny little pumpkins, and wish I had a truck-load of them!
There isn't one single element of this card that isn't absolute perfection!!

You had the perfect stamp and that wood grain paired with it is marvelous!! Cassidy's wackadoodle hair looks cute!!

Jen Mitchell said...

I saw pumpkins - not apples. If you hadn't said anything I never would have questioned it! And I never even suspected that the tailgate was doctored. You are quite the card-wizard!

Great country card. I love it. I like how you've used the little banner die under the larger one too. The background patterned paper is perfect too. And, that wacky Cassidy. What a cutie!

This is so pretty!! I LOVE the coloring on the truck and the fun sentiment banner with the twine. GREAT design.
