Little Red Wagon #613 - Just Because


Happy 1st Wednesday of August!  I want to share our  Little Red Wagon challenge with you.  Imke is our wonderful hostess this week and she wants to see "Just Because" cards.  This is my absolute favorite reason to send a card, especially with all that has been going on in the world over the last 1+ year.



A little about my card, the flowers are die cut with Bouquet Builder (FRA-DIE-10983) from the Frantic Stamper's newest release, Make A Scene.   The sentiment is from the Florals and Greetings clear stamp set  and seems just perfect for a " just because" car.


I can't wait to see your creation, Just Because.  Head on over to Little Red Wagon and link up. While you're there, be sure to check out the wonderful projects the other Girlfriends have created.

Aloha,
Brenda

A You Like It Challenge #213 - Favorite Pet/Animal


It's time for another As You Like It Challenge.  This fortnight our challenge theme is to share your favorite pet/animal.  Be sure to tell us why it's your favorite for a chance to win.


This week our sponsor is:


I love cats and dogs for sure. We are hoping to add a dog to our family soon, but I think the animal that wins this tribute is my angel cat, Shami, a lilac point Siamese. She was a tiny little girl and was my constant companion at home. I loved her funny antics and demand for attention when she didn't feel she was getting what she wanted.




My card was created with an image from A Day for Daisies which appears to be closed now:(.  It was colored with Copic markers.  The sentiment is from The Cat's Pajamas which was stamped and die cut.

We would love for you to head back to the AYLI blog to link up your creation.  While you are there, check out the prize that's up for grabs and take a look at the gorgeous creations the DT made for you to see!  

Thanks for stopping by!  Take good care of yourselves!

Aloha,

More Christmas

I have a little more Christmas Cheer for you today.  These cards feature images, both digital stamps and Cutables,  from the  July releases in The Cat's Pajamas store.

The first card features Ski Bunny  along with the beautiful, intricate Snowflake Cutables.  It started with an A2 white card blank and a die cut design paper piece.  The Bunny was simply sized with Pages, printed with my inkjet printer and colored with Copic markers. The image was die cut and layered on design paper.  He was popped up onto the the center of the white card base.

The snowflakes cut file were imported and sized with  Silhouette Design Studio and cut from glitter paper using an electronic cutter.  They were glued into place around the Bunny as shown.  I absolutely love that you can create any size snowflake your heart desires.  The sentiment is from the Penguin Sleigh digi.  It was printed on vellum and stayed wet long enough for me to heat emboss.  This was popped onto the corner of the card.  Just a bit of Stickles were added here and there for a little more sparkle.

The next card is super simple, which is just what you need when you are trying to build that Christmas stash and time is at a premium, right?  I just loved the beautiful script "Joy" from Santa Gnomie and thought it would look great oversized and sparkly.

This card started with an A7 card blank.  I using an embossing folder to add a little texture to a white panel.  "Joy" was imported into Silhouette  Design Studio and sized to be 4 inches high.  The electronic cutting machine cut it beautifully.   It was mounted onto the base with glue and a little extra sparkle was added with sequins.  Super simple, right?

I hope you are having as much fun creating with the new cut files and digital stamps as I am.  Really, the sky is the limit when it comes to possibilities.

I've got one more chance to remind you of the super sale that is going on for only 2 more days.  Get your stamps and die cut  goodies while you can over at the TCP store!  Thanks so much for popping in!

 Please stay safe, I hope you are all doing well!

Aloha,

Brenda

Little Red Wagon Challenge #612 - Bette Davis Eyes



I know I often mention how fast time seems to be rolling along, but it really does seem that I can't keep up with it lately.  It is Wednesday again, and therefore, time for a new  Little Red Wagon  Challenge.  Kate is continuing to sing her way through the challenges and this week is it is Kim Carnes that is going to be sticking in your head with "Bette Davis Eyes".  Translated, Kate wants to see a face on your projects.


This week, time was at a premium, so I went to my little box of already colored images.  When I saw this cutie from Melonheadz all ready to go, I created a beach scene for her using a NBUS Lawn Fawn stamp set and dies and a NBUS Wplus 9 frame die.  I love it when I use this wonderful stuff!
  
Since I'm late on this post, I'm going to cut to the details, head on over to Little Red Wagon and link up. While you're there, be sure to check out the wonderful projects the other Girlfriends have created.

Aloha,
Brenda

Little Red Wagon #611 - Stay Cool


 

I certainly hope everyone is enjoying summer.  I know it has been an unusually hot one for many places.  With that in mind and because I have hostess duties, I would love to see  you create a project depicting how you Stay Cool.  I am thinking things like fans, cool drinks, pools, ocean, ice cream  or anything else along those lines.  Keep in mind you don't have to make a card to enter the Little Red Wagon challenge.  We love scrapbook pages, art journals, book marks, tags...it's pretty wide open.

I created a beach/ocean scene because my favorite way to cool off is to take a dip in the ocean.  I played a little with this one.  

The background was created with leftover alcohol ink puddles made by using old alcohol markers and 90% alcohol.  The sand dollar was cut from Gelli plate printed paper and a die (not sure what company).  The sentiment is from Picket Fence Studios' Bottomless Sea, I just cut the stamp to make it fit my A2 card.  

                                

I can't wait to see how you stay cool.  Just link up your creations over at the Little Red Wagon blog.  While you are there, take a peek at what the Girlfriends have created to inspire you this week.

Aloha,

Brenda
