Hello Everyone!

Today I'm sharing my last Little Red Wagon card. Yes, I'm retiring from the Little Red Wagon after 252 challenges, not a bad run!

This week Tracy wants to see our girlie creations.

I dug into my wagon for a Stamping Bella stamp and coloured up an image to create this card:

Crazy Card Party - Watercolour

Hello all!

Today I'm back with a fun Crazy Card Party challenge.

This week Kathryn challenged us to use watercolours on our card.

And this is way out of my comfort zone. Although I love the look of watercolours I wasn't too sure I could create a card comparable to some of the beautiful watercolour cards I've seen  out there.

So initially I tried watercolouring this image using both a embossed white outline and brown stazon outline.

I wasn't happy with either.

Then I used a larger stamped image with a white embossed outline.  And since sweet peas tend to have different shades within the same flower, it is perfect for watercolouring.

I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.

Pop over to Crazy Card Party to check out all the other watercolour cards.

Thanks for stopping by.

Supplies used: Cardstock, stamps, dies - Papertrey Ink; Embossing Powder - Recollections; Ink - Momento; Watercolour - Peerless

I used a die to create heart and star confetti then sewed it up in a vellum pouch to the front of my card:

It does create a cheery fun card!

We'll be sure to stop by and say hello.

Crazy Card Party - Kraft and White


It's my challenge over at Crazy Card Party this week and since I'm on a white with one other colour roll, this week I want to see those cards featuring only kraft and white.

I created my card based on one I saw on Pinterest but it took a few tries to get the background the way I wanted.

First I tried paint on the embossing folder, then I tried white ink on the embossing folder, then I used white embossing powder on a embossing folder with  a lot of non-textured space, all were no go's.

Here's the results:

Finally I settled on the white embossing powder with a texture that is more closely spaced to come up with this card:

I guess technically I may have cheated since the sentiment is stamped in brown!?

Although I sure do like it!

I wonder how the the other party-ers did, check out their cards over at Crazy Card Party.

And play along if you can!

Thanks for stopping by!
