Your Next Stamp Sneak Peek!!

Today is an exciting day over on the Your Next Stamp's blog.  It is the time when they share a little sneak peek of the February release.  Today if you head over to the YNS blog, you will see a full list of the design team members sharing projects today.

I created this 'four way' card using the Birthday Phoebe stamp set. I also used nested heart die set from YNS too!!

These nested heart dies are perfect for making this type of card.  I attached the present from the stamp set and it appears as though it is floating.

Your Next Stamp Challenge #32

Welcome to the Your Next Stamp sketch/colour challenge #32.


Create a project based on the sketch and/or colour inspiration. If you are working with the colours, use at least 3 of the colours. You can also add additional neutrals.

I decided to use the sketch for my project.  To make things a little more interesting, I rotated it to the left.  I used the Winter Mitten Die Set and embellished with some of my favourite twine.

Visit the YNS blog for all the details and to check out some of the DT inspiration!!

Thanks for stopping by and have fun!!

LRW - Cool Colours

Time for another challenge on the Little Red Wagon blog.  It is Brenda's turn to host and she wants us to use 'cool' colours.

I will be totally honest here.....I had a hard time with this challenge.  I know what you are thinking....what is so hard about 'cool' colours, right?  Ya got me, but it really challenged me.  To start with I didn't have any idea what type of card I was going to make and then I had the colours to deal with too.

I have discovered that I am more of a 'warm' colour person.  I pulled a pallet of papers that fit the description but then felt they were more warm than cool.  At 8pm last night I decided to just go with it and see how it ended up.

This is what I created.

Once I had everything layed out I felt it needed a little ink around the edges of the papers (you know, to warm it up, lol) and then I was happy.

I hope it falls within the challenge guidelines....and I hope you will play along too.  Be sure to link up your creation over on the Little Red Wagon blog.  Have fun!

LRW - Birthday

Hello Friends!! Can you believe we are already in the last week of January???  It is crazy how fast time flies.

We are already doing our last Little Red Wagon challenge for the month of January and this week Jan is our hostess.  She wants to see 'birthday' themed projects.

Here is the card that I created for Jan's challenge.

We have lots of snow in our area, so I thought I would make a card for a winter birthday.

I hope you have some time to play along with our challenge.  Be sure to link up your project over on the Little Red Wagon blog.

LRW - Fairy Nice

Hello friends!!  It is time for another Little Red Wagon challenge.  It is Heather's turn to host and she wants to see something 'fairy nice'.  That is code for use a fairy on a project.

This was a hard one for me.....I am not really a 'fairy' girl.  But, I embraced the challenge and this is what I came us with.

I did a 'print & cut' on my Silhouette and added some Stickles to make her sparkle.  As far as faries go, I think she is pretty cute :)

Join in the fun and create your own fairy project.  Be sure to link it up over on the Little Red Wagon blog.

LRW - Build A Snowman

I think one of my very favourite things is a snowman.  This week it is my turn to host the challenge for Little Red Wagon and I want you to 'build a snowman'.  Of course I don't expect you to run outside and actually build a snowman.....I want you to use a snowman on your project.

I created a little scene using my snowman!!

I found a few things in my wagon that I was able to use as well.....the 'snow' buttons and the snowflake stickers too.  

I can't wait to see all the snowmen that our Little Red Wagon followers create.  Be sure to link up yours.

LRW - Thank You

Welcome to the first Little Red Wagon challenge of 2016!! I am very excited for another year of inspiration and creativity!!

To kick things off, Mandy is our hostess and she wants to see a Thank You card.  I am trying to get into the Winter spirit so I made a Winter themed thank you card.

The stamp is from C.C Designs and I used my Copics to colour her.  I added some glitter and made my sentiment using my computer.  

I hope you will join in the fun and create a Thank You card of your own.  Be sure to link up over on the Little Red Wagon blog.
