Amber Ink #3: The Shoe Choo Choo

Shoe Choo Choo

Are you ready to take the ride of your life? Climb aboard – toot toot! This week, The Pink Torchbearer is going where no man has gone before. I’m boarding Amber Ink’s latest digital stamp release – It’s A Train Set – and transforming it into the girliest train in town!

Amber Ink - It's A Train Set Stamp Set
It’s A Train Set – Digital Stamp Set

Now I know Choo Choo Charlie will be doing The Loco-Motion when he sees this adorable train set. Chances are, you will too once you see what Amber Ink has included for your engineering pleasure!

There’s a conductor’s car, a circus car, four cargo cars, and a caboose. There’s also a box car, a dining car, and a sleeping car!

This is the perfect set to use on your travel and masculine projects. The mix and match possibilities are endless!

But I Need It Digital Stamp Set

However, even if you’re a girly girl like me, this set provides you with the opportunity to step outside of the proverbial box and let your imagination run wild!

First, let your Inner Rapper out and get your onomatopoeia on!

Choo Choo
Choo Choo
Shoe Choo
Choo Choo!

Then let your Favorite Footwear Fashionista take charge! Jaunt down to Amber Ink, pick up the But I Need It set, and fill your train with shoes!

Pink shoes
Happy shoes
Dancing shoes
Moving, grooving shoees!

Soon, every girl’s dream will appear before your very eyes. You’ll have a Shoe Choo Choo of your very own!
