Alice in Wonderland Blog Hop


Today we are celebrating the 150th Anniversary of Alice in Wonderland, and what better way to do that, than to share lots of creative projects inspired by this wonderful story.

Not only will you see lots of amazing artwork today, but you can also win prizes from the following amazing companies;







Prize winners will be selected from Random blogs throughout the hop using Random.org to select each winner.  In order to be eligible for a prize you must visit all stops on the hop and leave a comment. The prize draws will be open until July 18th, with winners announced on July 20th.

Here's my Alice in Wonderland inspired projects;


My first project features the gorgeous Alice in Wonderland image that Teri Sherman of Delicious Doodles very kindly created for this hop. You'll find it in her Etsy Store some time today.

I used an MDF frame from That Craft Place for this project.  I decoupaged it with strips of black and white text patterned paper that I had in my stash.  Before adding my image and decoupaging that, altogether there are 4 layers of decoupage. The picture below gives you an idea of the dimension created.


For my next project I decided to make some ATCs;
My first set of ATCs features The Mad Hatter by Vera Lane Studio.  The sentiment comes from the same set of images. My background papers come from the Queen of Hearts Digital Paper Pack by The Invite Delight.  As an extra wee treat for you I've a discount code for the Vera Lane Studio for all of you who haven't added any of their gorgeous images to your collection yet; TRYVERA10 will get you a 10% discount on your order.


For my second set of ATCs I used the gorgeous Queen of Wonder image by Sandra Caldwell available at Sweet Pea Stamps.com along with a sentiment from Vera Lane Studio.  My background papers were from the Queen of Hearts Digital Paper Pack by The Invite Delight.

That's all my projects for today's hop.  Now it's time for you to grab a cup of tea and fall down the rabbit hole to enter our Alice in Wonderland Blog Hop.

Happy Hopping

Wicked Wednesday ATC Challenge #165 - Red, White and Blue

How are you all doing this Wicked Wednesday?  The Weather is beautiful here at the moment, so lots of happy faces and white legs on display, lol!  

It's time for a new challenge over at the Wicked Wednesday ATC Challenge Blog
Our theme this week is Red, White & Blue

We are sponsored this week by the truly Wicked and Wonderful The Octopode Factory

Here's my ATC;
I used the truly Awesome Captain America image for my ATC.

For my ATC Base I used a piece of Red Mirri Card.  I then took a piece of paper slightly smaller and added some Blue and Red Faber-Castell Gelatos which I blend together with a sponge tool.  I then took a Star Mask/Stencil and using a baby wipe removed some of the blue from the background to create my white stars.  Once my paper was complete dry I adhered it to my ATC and added two white extra large staples.

Captain America is coloured with Faber-Castell PITT Pens, before being fussy cut and added to my ATC. I then added some Black PITT Pen around the image smudging it with my finger to give a softer effect. I also added some extra detail to the red background area with a Red and Black PITT Pen.  The last thing I did was to use the White PITT Pen to add highlights to my image and the background stars.

That's all from me for now, before you go don't forget to hop over the the Wicked Wednesday ATC Challenge Blog to get full details on our Challenge, and to check out the awesome creations from the rest of our amazing Design Team.

Our Challenge theme is Summer

Here's my card;


I had great fun making this summery Easel Card using Tammy Tween - Just Chilling. I've combined her with papers from Bo Bunny's Barefoot and Bliss Paper Pad.  I added some Gold Gelato to the panel that the image is on, so it has a lovely mettalic glow.  I used Gold Pearlidoodles to add some dots of gold around my card.  My sentiment was cut from the same card stock i used for my Easel Base, using the Alice Alphabet Die from XCuts.

Here's a close up of my image;
She looks pretty relaxed to me.

It's Wednesday again, so time for another fun challenge over at the I ♥ PROMARKERS Challenge Blog.  

Our theme this week is 'Things with Wings'

We are very lucky to be sponsored by the wonderful

Here's my card using Knome and Ladybug
Isn't Mr Knome a cutie, he looks like he's listening to every word the ladybug is saying, I wonder what she's telling him?  Maybe she's telling him about her latest adventure flying around the world!

I've teamed Mr Knome up with some Basic Grey papers (not sure what collection, as they were in my oddments pile) I thought they created a lovely backdrop for my image.  I kept my embellishments very simple, as with such bold patterns I didn't want to over do things.  I used some Red spotty Washi Tape along with a couple of cute wooden pegs with Ladybugs on them.  My sentiment is from a Crafter's companion stamp set.

That's all from me for now, but please don't forget to visit the  I ♥ PROMARKERS Challenge Blog to see the gorgeous creations from the rest of our very talented Design Team.

That Craft Place Ltd Challenge - Lots of Layers

It's time for a new challenge over at the That Craft Place Ltd Challenge Blog.
Our theme for this challenge is; 


Here is my card;
I couldn't resist using one of the new Bubbles images from That Craft Place Ltd Etsy Store; My card features 'It's not fair - Grumpy Bubbles' Doesn't she make you smile, reminds me of myself so much when i was younger and a champion sulker lol! 

I printed her out 4 times coloured her and fussy cut her to create a decoupaged centrepiece for my card, she is layered with foam pads to give the dimension.

For my background I took an 8 x 8" card blank and added a piece of gold spotted vellum along with some gold washi tape and gold bias binding.  I then took a smaller square of white card to which i added the same vellum and washi tape, layered it onto some gold card stock and added that to my card base.  With some leftovers i created the small panel for my image to sit on.  I added this panel to my card base, then added the image with foam pads to give an extra dimension.  

My sentiment is from one of the new Bunting MDF sets - this is from set B, I added some Gold Gelato, Dark Green Alcohol marker and Gold bias binding before gluing it to my card.

To embellish my card I added a selection of flowers, leaves, buttons, and gems, all of which you can get from That Craft Place Ltd.

That's all from me for today, don't forget to visit the That Craft Place Ltd Challenge Blog to see the amazing creations from the rest of our truly awesome Design Team.
Have a wonderful day all

Seeing Red with Wicked Wednesday ATC Challenge #163

Time for some wicked fun with Wicked Wednesday ATC Challenge.  
Our challenge theme this week is 'Seeing Red' - so we want to see lots of Red on your ATCs, nice and easy.
We are sponsored by the awesome SLSLines
Here's my ATC,
I used the truly awesome Voodoo King Skull Day of the Dead image by SLSLines.  I had great fun with this image, I was hoping to make him look scary and creepy; which i think i managed.  He's coloured with Letraset Promarkers with the addition of some white and gold metallic gel pen.  I love his glowing eyes, which were a last minute addition, whilst using the gold metallic pen for the chain around his hat, I thought it would look cool for him to have gold eyes.

Want to see more gorgeous Red ATCs, visit the Wicked Wednesday ATC Challenge Blog to see the amazing ATCs on show combining the talents of our awesome Design Team and the wicked images from SLSLines.

Hello again, my lovely followers, It's time for a new challenge over at the I ♥ PROMARKERS Challenge blog.  

Our theme is week is 'Anything Goes', so you can do whatever your heart desires as long as you use your Promarkers.

We are very lucky to be sponsored by the wonder 'The Stamping Boutique'

Here's my project;
For my card I used the wonderfully wild and wacky Alice in Wonderland Mad Hatter image from The Stamping Boutique.  I've had the rainbow patterned paper for a good few years now, and this seemed like the perfect project for it, because when i think of Wonderland it is a magical place full of bright colours.  So I teamed my paper up with some gold card stock, and rainbow ribbon.  I used some Cosmo Cricket tiny letter stickers for my sentiment.
