The theme we were given this month was the Color Red and this is what I made...

I think this is one of my favorite cards I have ever made!  All of the products I used are from Craftin' Desert Diva's shop with the exception of the Martha Stewart heart border punch and the Cricut embossing folder!  

I started off stamping my truck from Farmers Market stamp set onto white 110lb cs, then I masked the truck and stamped the heart, from Wildly Cute mini stamp set, and masked each heart before stamping the next.  I then colored it with Copic markers and cut it out with my new Brother Scan n Cut 2!  (I am so in love with this machine!!! Best investment next to the MISTI that I have purchased to date!)  It's hard to tell but I used Wink of Stella in clear over the hearts and glossy accents on the windshield and side window.  Next, I die cut a road using the hill die cut from Outdoor Landscape Dies on white cs and used my Tim Holtz distress inks with the blending tool to color the road.  For the 'trees' in the background I used the Stitched Scallop Dies  diecut in white cs and colored the same way as the road with TH distress inks.  For the sky I die cut the round stitched scallop using Stitched Circle Dies colored the same as the others. I then took the same circle die and die cut the road and treeline  then layered them on the sky circle to make my scene.  The banner is hand cut and the sentiment is from Farmers Market stamped in Versafine onyx black ink.  I dry embossed the cardbase with Cricut dots embossing folder on my Cuttlebug and used Martha Stewart's heart border punch on the red plaid pattern paper.  Tied a natural twine bow around the top and called it done!  And to be honest I haven't finished the inside yet!  Not sure what I want to do yet there!

I hope this has inspired you to come and join us!

Thanks for stoppin' by!
