Pumpkin Pick-up! Weekend Project

I told you I wasn't done with "Halloween Week!" I still have a few more projects up my sleeves to do before the end of the month!!! If you are looking for all the 3-D items I made during Halloween Week just click here and you will be taken to them.

For this project I use the Stampin' Up! set "Loads of Love." I just LOVE that little pick-up, don't you???

I had gotten the pattern for the box at Stampin' Up! in the Show & Tell patterns and templates section (for demonstrators only). I printed the box out on Glossy card stock. I did print it out on the back side of the card stock. Well, the second time I did!!! LOL After cutting it out I sponged on the Old Olive for the grass at the bottom and I sponged on Ballet Blue for the sky.

Then I stamped the tree from the set "Lovely as a Tree." After I had stamped the tree I regretted not stamping the image higher but after putting the wording on the height of the tree didn't matter after all.

When I was all done coloring what I needed to I punched out the circle with the 1-3/8" punch. I put a piece of clear acetate over the hole.

I then assembled the box and added the candy. PLEASE NOTE!!! The candy is in a bag within the box. It's in a bag that is meant for food items. Please be sure to use bags meant for food when making items such as this. And it is a MUST if you are selling these type of items at craft fairs. Ok, lecture over!!! LOL

After I added the candy I taped the bottom shut and added the ribbon around the box.

The wording was done on the computer and punched out using the two Stampin' Up! oval punches.

The car was stamped on Whisper White card stock (I had stamped a few of these trucks when I was at Sue's for DIVA Day earlier this month). Yes, another set I do not own, if you can believe that!!!! LOL I colored it in using a blender pen and More Mustard. I added a bit of Bashful Blue with the blender pen on the windows and headlights. I used Going Gray for the bumpers and Basic Black for the wheels. I cut the truck out and taped it in place just below the punched hole area. And that was it. It took longer to cut the truck out than it did for any other part of the project!!! It was quick and very fun!!!

This would be great for Stamp Camps, Craft Fairs, Kids Projects, Hostess Gifts, Customer Appreciation Gifts and even a Make n Take!!!

Thank you ever so much for stopping by,

Wanda, could you offer some coloring tips for the truck? Mine never come out with so much depth.
