So, you may have seen my sweet little Farm Fresh Pickup I posted on Monday. Well, today, I spent all day making two spooky Pickups for Halloween!
(It always takes longer to make the first one, as I kind of design it as I go along and think of things or find 'stuff' to use on it!)
They look sort of like pumped up racing trucks at first glance - and then you notice the skulls!
It's the same Dashing in the Snow: Pickup die from PTI as my first trucks - but this time I used some fun DP's on the wheels fenders and windows. Michaels had their Halloween stuff 40% off already and the bat paper came from A Moonlit Manor Paper Pad. The spider web paper I used for the tires came from an old Authentique paper pad - Collection/Enchanted.
The die cut cat and raven are Movers and Shapers dies by Tim Holtz/Sizzix. The 'Wicked' and 'Boo' are wooden Amuse stamps. I added rhinestones to the tire hubs and in the eyes of the big skull lurking in the truck bed!
Here's the skull out of the truck - pretty big and frightful, right!?
The 'Open if You Dare' stamp is yet another from Amuse.
How cool are these shadow skeletons gazing out the window. This paper is from the same paper pad from Michaels that I used for the fenders.
And even more of them gazing out the front windshield!!
On the roof, the two skeletons on the ends are
Tim Holtz/Idea-ology Skulls. The one in the center came in a package of really big skulls (like the one in the bed of the trucks) and several little ones. I got them at JoAnn last year. I added orange rhinestones to their wicked eye sockets! I glued them to the roof with Tombow Glue.
I added a different die cut cat to my 2nd truck (someone gave me this one so I don't know what die was used.) The sign sentiment is from Midnight Feast by Waltzingmouse (retired). I glued it to a wooden coffee stirrer from Starbucks. I sponged all the edges of the sentiment pieces with Soft Stone Ink from PTI.
The same three skulls lined up on the roof!
The spider web on this side was also sent to me so I don't know the die.
For my second truck I used a DP with bones on it for the fenders.
The Boo Stamp is another wooden stamp from Amuse.
And finally, a flying bat (a Movers and Shapers die from Tim Holtz/Sizzix) was added to the grill on a foam dot and given orange rhinestone eyes!
Cute in a spooky way, right??!
These little pickups measure about 4 1/2" long x 2 1/8" tall at the cab and 1 3/4" wide.
My next project with this fun Pickup Die will probably be for Christmas! Stay Tuned!!
