This is the final card in the Kid Pick Designs, my personal challenge to myself where I allowed my kids to pick a stamp set at random and then I made a card for them. My train loving little boy picked Choo Choo.
For this card, you will need:
- Stamp Sets: Choo Choo
- Card Stock: Very Vanilla, Bashful Blue, Real Red
- Designer Series Paper: Sweet Pea
- Classic Stampin Pads: Basic Black, Crushed Curry, Brilliant Blue, Real Red
- Tools and Accessories: Heart to Heart Punch, Paper Snips
This card uses a few paper piecing techniques. I stamped the parts of my train in each of my colors and then cut them out. I selected a piece of Sweet Pea Designer Series Paper that most resembled a grassy hill and cut it shape, overlapping to achieve the look of rolling hills. I glued my train on top. I punched a heart using my Heart to Heart punch and placed that on the flat bed train car. I used the smoke puff stamp to spell out I Love You in smoke.
This became a perfect Valentine’s Day card and Liam is looking forward to me giving it to him. His response: “Cool Mommy. Is it for me?”
God Bless and Happy Stampin’!
