Happy Bee-Day

Janice is our fabulous hostess at Little Red Wagon this week and she's looking for layers! Here in Canada, we often start layering our clothes this time of year but Jan is looking for layers of paper. In fact, she wants to see at least three layers on our projects!

By the time this post goes live, I'll be in England. Unfortunately, my aunt passed away earlier this month so I'm over for the funeral. I'm there with my mum, older sister, and younger brother. It just so happens that Saturday is my niece's birthday and she lives near London so I made this card to hand deliver to her! That doesn't happen very often. 

I started with the card base and then added a black mat either side. I took a piece of watercolour cardstock and smooshed some Fossilized Amber oxide ink all about. I used half the paper to create two panels and the other half to die cut with my never-before-used-although-had-to-have-at-the-time-of-release bee hive panel die (Studio Katia). The little doily is from My Craft Spot (no longer in business), with the tiny popped bee on the front from Your Next Stamp (also no longer in business). The sentiment. little bee and flight path inside are from My Favorite Things.

Now it's your turn to layer up! Please head over to Little Red Wagon for inspiration from the wonderfully talented team there - and then link up your own paper creation! 


Happy Birthday My Friend

It's our wonderful Doni's turn to host at Little Red Wagon this week and she's looking for balloons! Balloons for celebration or balloons for travel. However you'd like to showcase them, we'd like to see your balloons.

I used a stencil and inked some balloons onto a card base. I typically add a mat over my card base but thought this would be a good opportunity to use the entire base - so that's just what I did. After the balloons, I added some water splashes and then some black ink splatter before adding a heat-embossed sentiment strip. I finished things off with three dewdrops.

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to check out all the balloons there! I hope you'll join our fun too!

Chrissy is hosting our Little Red Wagon challenge this week and she's calling out "Square or Rectangle". You can decide to create something that is either square or rectangular - or add a square or rectangular element to your creation. 

I decided to go square ('cause it's hip to be square). My card is 4.5" x 4.5". However, as I needed three cards and wanted them to be similar but not identical - and because two had to be posted overseas and square cards sometimes need more postage (although I'm not sure why or when, I just know it's happened to me before), I opted to go with rectangle for the other two. 

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see the rest of the squares and rectangles. We'd love to have you join the challenge this week as well!
