Did you see my sneak peek on Facebook?  Well here she is!  It's another interpretation of the Alice in Waterland stamp.  And isn't it time for a vacation with Alice in the tropics?

The Aloha card is the perfect any occasion card.  She is on a 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 inch card blank.  The papers are from Webster's Pages.  I simply inked the edges - with Ocean Blue chalk ink and began layering.  Alice was colored with gel pens to give shine and dimension.  Her skin is colored with a colored pencil, from Crayola (my favorite brand it seems with kids around!).

Check out all of the wonderful stamps at Queen Kat Designs, you will love them!

Alice in Waterland!

I adore these new images at Queen Kat Designs.  Alice in Waterland is amazing.  These detailed stamps are so much fun to color! 

For this card, I made a 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 inch blank in black for the card base.  I added a 5 x 5 piece of paper from the K and Company travel collection.  I colored Alice with gel pens, glitter glue, and colored pencils.  She is mounted on the card with dimensional tape!

You absolutely should check out the Alice in Waterland collection.  These stamps are wonderful!

Happy Retro Birthday!

I am certainly in a springy mood.  Today in my yard there are daffodils blooming and our flowering plum has some of those wonderful pink flowers opening up.  My inspiration for this card is definitely the spring pallet!  This card goes together very quickly.

You need:
4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inch card blank (white)
4 x 5 1/4 inch patterned paper (Webster's Pages)
daisy chain ribbon (Offray)
pink bling
lovely day sentiment (Freckled Fawn)
Stamp Lizzy Love Number 6
Sakura Gel Pens for coloring stamp

I am in love with the Lizzy Love images.  Such cuties, and all available at Queen Kat Designs.
To assemble the card:
1.  Adhere the daisy chain ribbon to the patterned paper with liquid adhesive.
2.  Adhere the patterned paper to the white card blank
3.  Add the colored Lizzy Love with dimensional foam tape over the ribbon
4.  Add the bling in the lower right hand corner, and finally
5.  Add the sentiment in the upper left hand corner.

Hope you enjoy this cute design.  AND I hope spring in popping out in your area!

Made with Love!

It's almost time to welcome Spring and Summer!  I love this new stamp called "Ribbon Girl" from Queen Kat Designs.  Today I am showing another way to use this super cute image.  She reminds me of a carefree childhood.  I think, for that reason, she is perfect for using in an art journal.  So, I am taking you inside my art journal to show you how I used this image.

First up close and personal!  I colored her this time with colored pencils in shades of blue, which is my favorite color.  The journal background on this image is completed with acrylic paints which were scrapped on with a credit card.  I also used mists, stencils and rub ons.

Here is the page in its entirety.  I still have space to write inside the heart when the mood strikes and I want to take time to write down a childhood memory.

Thanks for stopping by!  I am off to a very special wedding where I will be using one of the cards I created with the sweet double wedding birds, I featured last month!  Check them out!
