Loads of Love Truck Book

Here is my Loads of Love Truck Book that I made for my four year old son. Needless to say, he loves it! This is really simple to do and I will show you all the pictures in it below. All I used is the Loads of Love truck stamp and a marker to make the additions. I colored them in with lots of different colored stamp pads and the Blender Pen to give it that watercolored look.

First, just stamp the Loads of Love truck on a small piece of white card stock or watercolor paper. I used just plain white card stock. All of these trucks have the full truck stamp stamped, and then the additions were made. The book is just Pumpkin Pie card stock stapled together and then the ribbon put on over the binding.

Then, for example with the fire truck, I just used a black marker to add the ladder on the back and the light on the top. (Later I also added a horn on the front, but not in this picture.)

Here are all of the colored pages below. You can see how I added everything on top of the fully stamped truck image. I think they came out so cute! (Some are a little bit of a stretch, but Timmy enjoyed them anyway.)

Fire Truck & Crazy Tractor(this is the one that's a stretch!)

Plow & Cement Mixer
Dump Truck & Cherry Picker

Police Car and Semi Truck

Jeep & Ambulance
Tow Truck (or Mater!) & Oil Truck
Farm Truck & Dump TruckHope you enjoyed all of my little trucks. If anyone comes up with anymore, please send me a photo! I would love to see them!

These are sooo cute! Wish my boys were little so I could make it for them. But I don't think my teenagers will get much out of it. What a creative idea and after all the years that set has been out no one ever did that (at least not that I have seen). Thanks for sharing your creativity!
