Cool Treats from Tasty Trucks – Sweet Birthday Wishes

CANADA DAY and I am celebrating my home country’s birthday.

Mixing a few challenges…Sketch: Sketch Saturday (#666), Choice of Stamp Sets: Retro Rubber (#161) and Theme: Seize the Birthday (#217) with an optional Topping – Embossing Folder.

A bright fun little card.

Here is the result:



  • Background Panel: (4” x 5¼”) Basic White cardstock.  The Ice Cream Truck from the retired (2017) Tasty Trucks stamp set was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  The Truck was colored with a variety of Stampin’ Blends: Smoky Slate, Melon Mambo, Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight and retired Soft Sky.  The sentiment, I Hope Your Day…, from the retired (2017) Cool Treats stamp set was also stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink across the top.
  • Cross Strip: (4” x 1¾”) Sweet Taffy (retired) Designer Series Paper.
  • Pennant: (3” x 1¼”) Tempting Turquoise cardstock dry-embossed with the retired Wrapped in Texture Embossing Folder.
  • Shape: (1¼” x 1¾”) Basic White cardstock scrap.  The Cone image was stamped in 2nd Generation (stamped-off once) Cinnamon Cider ink with the Waffle image stamped over top in full strength Cinnamon Cider ink.  The Ice Cream Scoop image was stamped with 2nd Generation Polished Pink ink.  Both of these images are from the Cool Treats stamp set and were fussy cut with Paper Snips.
  • Embellishment Dots: Stickers from the retired Ice Cream Parlor Designer Series Paper and More pack. I omitted the ribbon/bow element as there was already a lot going on…

To complete this card, I chose a Tempting Turquoise card base (8 ½” x 5 ½” scored at 4 ¼”).

Happy Birthday, CANADA!
