Tasty Trucks Fiesta CTC#117

Another Sunday night at CASE-ing The Catty and we've returned to the Sale-a-bration catalogue. You may have arrived from the amazing Julia Quinn, but if not, you can pop back to see her fabulous trucks. Otherwise, complete the circuit and you'll reach Julia at the end. This week we are focussing on pages 12-15 and I've gone straight to page 12 and the Tasty Trucks. I've had such a lot of use from this stamp in the short time it has been available. This super-cute stamp set can be added to your $90 order at no additional cost, and it has lots of variations of goodies for the truck to sell. Tacos, cupcakes, pancakes, cupcakes and hotdogs are some of the choices. You can see others I've made here and here and heaps more on Pinterest. Remember there is only another month before SALE-A-Bration is over for 2017.

On page 12 of the SAB catty is a sample in So Saffron. I've changed the orientation from portrait to landscape and used a different colour (Flirty Flamingo) and Textured Embossing Folder. I did mount the truck on a circle, toward the right-hand side of the card. I also grabbed the Urban Underground specialty designer series paper to cut my truck in both my cards. I have cupcakes instead of pancakes, and a pretty white sheer and satin ribbon for the feminine touch.

The truck is layered on dimensionals so it stands out slightly from the base, and the canvas awning is yet another layer. I seem to use the Stitched Shape framelits on nearly every card I make at the moment, the stitching does add such a nice finish.

The 'happy birthday' sentiment which fits rather nicely along the panel of the Tasty Truck is from another SAB stamp, Designer Tee. Even if you don't order the Tee-shirt bundle from the Occasions catalogue, it might be useful to add this free set to a $90 order before March 31st also. I've used it a number of times, with or without the tee-shirt. Did you know that I have an online store, available 24/7 if you want to browse these items and replenish your stash?

Often when I CASE a card, my imagination begins to tick over with all sorts of other possibilities. Tacos triggered thoughts of the Birthday Fiesta stamp set. It was fun to add the streamers, cactus and "Fiesta like there's no manana". The truck is still positioned toward the right edge of the card like the original.

Although the same polka dot paper from Urban Underground has been used on the Taco Truck, the colours were bolder and brighter. For fun, I added a layer of Emerald Envy polka dots, and skewed it slightly (so you could actually see some dots!)

If any of the links are broken, you can get back on track here.

We'd love you to share your CASE of these pages in the SAB catty on our FB page. You don't need a blog to join in, just post a pic and comment.
