Classic Pickups

At the last stamping/scraping convention I found this flames embossing folder by Darice.  I'd been thinking about a card for my uncle's birthday and I was leaning towards a card using the old SU set "Classic Trucks".  The one I was thinking about has flames on it and this would make a perfect background.

Ink: Memento Tuxedo
Paper:  SU Glorious Green, GP White,  unknown yellow paper
Color: Colorbox rainbow pad, red, orange and some yellow
Stamps:  Classic Trucks:
Accessories:  Darice Flames embossing folder, SU watercolor pencils

After embossing the flames, I cut out some of them, then sponged the red/orange/yellow on it.  I colored the truck with the watercolor pencils and then lightly blended it.

Now that I've sent it (of course, it always seems to work this way) I think that using the SU tire roller to put tire tracks under the flames across the green might have been good.  Maybe I'll make another one!


  1. Very clever. I have been looking for ideas using the flames emboss folder I bought. Thanks for posting. Wish I knew what sentiment or verse is inside.

  2. LOVE how you morphed this folder!! I have one but was unsure how to make it pop but now I know. Will try your method for sure, thanks for the nifty idea!!
