Little Red Wagon Challenge #357 Let's Get Inky Mama Elephant Panda Love


Hello Everyone

This week's Little Red Wagon Challenge #357 is "Let's Get Inky" and I'm hosting it!  I wanted to see some projects using ink but not just using it for your sentiments.

I seem to be on a Mama Elephant kick right now!  I do love their stamps and dies! :)  I decided to create a distress background using distress inks and blended them on watercolour cardstock. I then spritzed water on it to give the watermarks.  I used one of my favourite ME dies to create the border.  I popped it up with foam tape.  I used the clouds die on white and vellum card stock and placed my sentiment on the white piece.  I added this cute panda from their Pandamonium stamp set.  I completed the card by stamping hearts using the same distress inks as my background. I completed the card with a sprinkling of small heart sequins.

Please head on over to the other LRW Girlfriends' blogs and see the wonderful projects they did for this weeks challenge.  The links for their blogs are along the sidebar of my blog.  You can also check them out on the Little Red Wagon blog and then link your projects based on the weekly challenges as well.  We love seeing your creations!!! :)

Little Red Wagon Challenge #356 Happy Birthday

Hello Everyone

This week's Little Red Wagon Challenge #356 is hosted by Donna and she wanted Happy Birthday projects. 

I used my Mama Elephant  Tiny Heroes for the images and Surprise Sentiment for the sentiment.  I decided to create a distress background using four distress inks and blended them on watercolour cardstock. I then spritzed water on it to give the watermarks.  I used very simple Copic colouring for the images. I finished off the card with some small star sequins.

Sketch N Scrap August 15th Layout Sketch - Avalanche!

Hello Everyone 

Today's layout sketch is a two photo sketch that I created for Sketch N Scrap. 

All the products I used are from Simple Stories Carpe Diem line.  I really love this line.  I love using black and white photos because then I can use any paper colours which is one of the things I have trouble with a lot....picking the papers/embellishments to go with my photos when they are in colour. 




Please hop on over and play along with us over at Sketch N Scrap.
We would love to see your cards and layouts creations with our Sketches!
Thank you for stopping by and Happy Scrappin'!

Little Red Wagon Challenge #354 Mama Elephant Distress Background Thinking Of You Card

Hello Everyone

This week's Little Red Wagon Challenge #354 is hosted by Jan and she wanted make sympathy cards. 

I have a lot of trouble creating this type of card (I'm sure I'm not alone).  The card I made can be used for a sympathy card but can also be used for just wanting to send a card to someone you're thinking about. I used the Mama Elephant's In My Heart for the image and sentiment.  I decided to create a distress background using four distress inks and blended them on watercolour cardstock. I then spritzed water on it to give the watermarks.  I used very simple topic colouring for the little girl.  The stitched rectangle and circles are from Mama Elephant as well.

Little Red Wagon Challenge #353 CASE Jennifer Mcguire Inking Modeling Paste

Hello Everyone

This week's Little Red Wagon Challenge #353 is hosted by Heather and she wanted us to CASE a card from one of our favourite crafters who inspire us   :) 

Well as I'm sure a lot of you will agree one of the first people that came to my mind was Jennifer McGuire. I love how Jennifer takes products and shows us how to use them in different ways that you would think.

The card I CASEd was one that she used embossing paste and ink to create a cute card for one of her daughters.  I used some different products to get the same effect.  I used modeling paste instead of embossing paste but the effect is the same.

Sketch N Scrap August 1st Layout Sketch Amy Tangerine Better Together

Today's layout sketch is an awesome two photo sketch that Heather Hall of  Sketch N Scrap designed!! 
For this layout I used my favourite product line right now which is the Better Together line designed by Amy Tangerine for American Crafts! I love how this page turned out.  It's simply embellished as my layouts usually are but I have my photos and story which are the most important to me and the reason I scrapbook.
