Little Red Wagon #303 - Pick Up The Pieces

Happy Wednesday my friends!  Our Little Red Wagon challenge for this week comes from Carolyn and she wants to see some paper piecing on our projects

Here is a little card that I made for this week's challenge:

I used a digi image and had fun creating a sweet little gingham elephant with my paper piecing.

The balloons are also paper pieced and I used some extra strips from the same paper for accents on the card background.

I hope you decide to pick up the pieces and join us at Little Red Wagon.  Just link up your paper pieced project and we will be sure to visit your blog.

Little Red Wagon #302 - Vellum

Mandy wants to see vellum on our projects at Little Red Wagon this week.  As it is summer and I am enjoying riding my bicycle as often as I can, I decided to create this lovely little card:

The bicycle is a clip art image that I printed onto a piece of vellum.  Then I added the sentiment using Word.

I kept it simple with some pretty patterned papers, a doily, some twine and a little tin pin.

Now, as my sentiment says, I hope you enjoy your day!  I also hope you join in our vellum challenge this week.  Make sure you stop by each of the Girlfriend's blogs and say Hi!  They always work hard on their awesome designs and I know you will be inspired by their creativity.  Then link up your own vellum creation at Little Red Wagon.  See you there :)

Little Red Wagon #301 - Shake It Up!

Donna is up this week as hostess of the challenge at Little Red Wagon!  Apparently she thinks we have been a bit too quiet lately and now she wants us to shake things up! 

This is my shaker card that I created for this challenge:

I have made quite a few shaker cards in my day so for this challenge I tried something a bit different.  I created a flat vellum shaker card.  There is no dimensional adhesive used, but the confetti/sequins still move around.  Plus with the vellum you get a slightly softer look than with acetate.

I also used my Lawn Fawn stitched dies for the background pieces and my Silhouette for the die-cut shapes.  Simple, sweet, perfect :)

I hope you are in the mood for shaking it up this week!  If you are, be sure to join us at Little Red Wagon.  And do stop by the other Girlfriends blogs - they always have some great inspiration for you.
