LRW - Colour Challenge

Hello!! Welcome to another Little Red Wagon challenge. This week it is Heather's turn to host and she has issued a colour challenge.  She wants us to use pink, turquoise and green on our project.

First, I must apologize for posting a little late.  I have been on holidays and have been a little overwhelmed since coming home.  I just finished up my card tonight and the lighting was not the best for taking a photo (that is why there is such a dark background).  However, I am so glad that was able to finish my card and get it posted on the same day the challenge was issued.....that technically makes me 'on time', right??

I tried a new technique on my background using bubbles (the kind you blow) and food colouring. You add the food colouring to the bubbles and then blow them towards your paper.  When they pop you get a burst of colour!!  It was fun, but the mixture of colours is a little off from the challenge.  My green looks a little more like yellow :(

I added some strips of cardstock and a couple of die-cuts to finish it off.  

I hope you will play along with this weeks challenge.  Don't forget to link up your project over on the Little Red Wagon blog.

LRW - Pick Up The Pieces!!

Hello, and thanks for stopping by to check out another challenge for Little Red Wagon.  This week is my turn to host!!!  Actually, it is not very good timing because I am on vacation in Alberta, ON!!  However, I did prepare ahead :)

I love paper piecing, especially with stamps!!  My challenge is to do a little paper piecing on your project!!  Get creative.  I can't wait to see what you come up with.

I created this card using a new stamp set from Taylored Expressions.  I saw a similar design online and added my own flair.

I chose to stamp the fish on different colours of pattern paper and then cut them out and layered them over the original stamped desing.  It turned out really cute :)

Don't forget to link up your project over on the Little Red Wagon blog!!  If you need a little inspiration, you can visit the other girlfriends and see what they created.

LRW - Use Vellum

Hello friends! It is time for another great challenge over on the Little Red Wagon blog.  This week it is Mandy's turn and she wants us to use vellum on our projects.

My card features my sentiment that has been printed on vellum!

I love that it just blends into the background of the card.

I can't wait to see all the different ways that vellum can be used.  Hope you will join in the fun.

LRW - Shake it Up

Thanks for stopping in to check out another great Little Red Wagon challenge.  This week it is Donna's turn and she want us to 'shake it up'!!  That means that she wants to see some shaker cards.  I love interactive cards, so this was really fun to do!!

I made a mason jar card using my Silhouette Cameo :).  My window reveals lots of cute buttons and some sparkly sequins.

I finished it off with a couple of tags, a clear sticker, a matching button and some ribbon and twine.

Give it a try and share it with us over on the Little Red Wagon blog!  I can't wait to see all the great creations.  Don't forget to visit the other girlfriends for some inspiration.
