I almost fell off my chair when I got asked by Stampin’ Up to be published in their monthly magazine, Stampin’ Success!!! This is a magazine that is published for all Stampin’ Up demonstrators. I always look forward to getting this magazine each month. It is full of wonderful ideas, tips and techniques! Because of copyright rules and regs, I am not able to link the actual magazine article, but they said I could take a picture to give you an idea of what it looked like. THANKS STAMPIN’ UP!!!

Here are the projects I came up with, using the stamp set “I Dig You”. I had so much fun with this!


This little dump truck is only about 4″ long. There is a MINI CUPCAKE in the back of the truck. However, in the magazine article, they chose to use Oreo cookies instead. It was also cute how they crushed the oreos to make it look like the truck was going through dirt.

I would LOVE to share the pattern to this little dump truck with you! I uploaded it to GoogleDocs, and you can find it HERE.

It’s so hard to see the detail in the card below. All the backhoe images are embossed in clear embossing powder, so it is raised and shiny. The arm of the backhoe was stamped twice and cut apart into 3 pieces. The hinges allow you to REALLY MOVE the arm up and down. The top layer of dirt is on dimensionals so the dump truck looks like it is really in the dirt.


This dump truck was stamped on plain white napkins. I used mini Oreos for the wheels and just set them ontop of the napkin.

The name plate simulates a construction sign. The letters were cut out using the sizzlet decorative strip die “Naturally Serif”.

I’m so sorry, I didn’t even save the dimensions of this box that I made (and didn’t make an extra one for me to keep here!) Boxes are pretty easy to make though, and you can make it any size you want! Again, I ripped the Chocolate Chip cardstock to simulate the layers of dirt. I brayered the top to make it look like a skyline.


I hope you enjoy these projects! They sure were fun to make!
