Toot Toot - its Tuesday!

Today I thought I would share a fun card with you that features another of the new stamp sets from the Stampin’ Up! Mini Catalogue (if you have not seen it yet there is a copy of the right hand side of my blog and if you are in the UK and want a paper copy email me at bekka@feeling-crafty.co.uk with your address and I will get one in the post for you)

The set I used was just crying out for a long thin card. It has been a while since I made a long thin card like this and I enjoyed working with the different shape and proportions. So all aboard, please mind the doors and here is the card!

This quick card was made using Real Red, Glorious Green and Whisper White card. The train tracks were fun to do as they are a Stampin’ Around Wheel and Chocolate Chip ink – so many possibilities with this one – just imagine the train tracks you could design and I think it would make a good fence too! The bits of the train were stamped and cut out before being added to the track with dimensional. The hardest part of this card was deciding on the train’s configuration and colours! All the elements of this set, Choo Choo, are adorable and the puff of steam just finishes of the set perfectly for me.

I think a variant of this card needs to steam its way into my Birthday Cards Galore class on Saturday 25th April – if you want to come along please hurry and book your place – there are only a couple left!

Happy Crafting
