Take a Ride With Me for the last time

The end of the Stampin’ Up! 2019-2020 Annual Catalog is fast approaching. The last day to order from this catalog is on June 2, 2020. Ride With Me is a really cute stamp set with an adorable old fashioned pickup truck that will be retiring. There are coordinating Truck Ride Dies with which you can put together a 3D truck. Today’s card will be simple and straightforward. My mother told me she once drove a Cherry Red pickup truck when she first learned to drive. I made this pickup red in her memory.

There are 2 of the retiring colors on this card – Lovely Lipstick and Blueberry Bushel. I have really enjoyed this set of In Colors and will be sad to see them go.

Measurements: Whisper White Card Stock (CS): the card base is 11 x 4 1/4 inches with a score line at 5 1/2, and you need a 3 3/4 x 3 inch piece for stamping; Blueberry Bushel CS: 4 x 3 1/4 inches; and the 2018-2020 In Color Designer Series Paper (DSP): 4 1/4 x 2 1/2 inches in Lovely Lipstick.

I initially stamped everything in Memento Black ink. I did not like how the “I ❤ STMPN” blended in with the door.

I decided to try stamping the pickup in Lovely Lipstick ink. The balloons are stamped in Memento Black ink.

I thought the “I ❤ STMPN” stood out a little better when it was stamped in Memento ink on the Lovely Lipstick pickup truck.

I used Stampin’ Blends Alcohol markers in Dark Basic Black, Light Smokey Slate and Dark Daffodil Delight to start coloring the pickup.

The body of the pickup is colored with Dark Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Blend alcohol marker. I went over the wheel covers twice to make them stand out. I also went along the edge of the door twice on either side of the “I ❤ STMPN”. I colored one of the balloons in Lovely Lipstick.

The Blueberry Bushel does not come in an alcohol marker so I used the Stampin’ Write marker which is water based to color two of the balloons.

I adhered the stamped pickup card piece to the 4 x 3 1/4 inch Blueberry Bushel CS. The card base was folded and burnished with the Bone Folder to create a crisp fold. The 2018-2020 In Color Lovely Lipstick DSP was adhered onto the center of the card front. The pickup card piece was then adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Now for some Bling! I used the Rhinestone Basic Jewels, the Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels and the Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels. Lots of color and sparkle!

Using the Take Your Pick tool to transfer the rhinestones to the card, I applied one rhinestone in the corresponding colors to each balloon.

Also added a trio of the Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the Lovely Lipstick DSP.

And Viola! there is your Old Fashioned pickup truck with lots of balloons and bling! If you leave off the “I ❤ STMPN” you could use this card for just about any celebration.

Make sure you take a last look at the Stampin’ Up! 2019-2020 Annual Catalog and order anything you have had on your wish list now. Time is running out! There is only 1 week left before many products retire!
