Put On A Happy Face

I made this 6" circle card using Amanda's cute
available HERE.
The background paper is also from Amanda's collection and is called "Dot Pastel" paper pack -
available HERE.

After colouring the elements digitally I printed them off together and assembled them together using foampads on a round card. I cut a small piece from the bottom of the card to make it stand up.
I lastly added Clear gloss to his nose, eyes and a little to his tongue to give them dimension.

Hope you like it :0)

Cheshire Cat Art Journal Page

Alice in Wonderland Art Journal Layout
I created this art journal page using digi stamps and paper from the MLB Alice in Wonderland series from A.J.'s Digi Shoppe. The tree sticker and the Cheshire Cat are on a piece of dollarstore cardstock that I misted with Perfect Pearls mist. Distress inks were used to color the back of the top paper which was cut and folded back to expose the scene underneath. Alice is on the top layer with many  dollarstore glitter sticker flowers and a mushroom. I used a quote from the Cheshire Cat as the sentiment, making the words with Staples cardstock, Bic Mark Its, Sharpie ultra fine points, Prismacolor pencils, and dollarstore glitter glue. I used Beacon 3-in-1 Advanced craft glue and Duck Brand double sided tape to hold everything down.

Who better to put on a Valentine's card than the Queen Of Hearts!

This little lady is from Amanda's cute NEW "Alice In Wonderland" range of digi's, which also includes Alice, The Mad Hatter, The Cheshire Cat and the Caterpillar.
Click HERE to see them all.

I used a 5"x7" white gate fold card, covered it with Amanda's "Alice In Wonderland" background paper, then went around the edge with an inkpad.

I then cut a large heart and again went around the edge with an inkpad before gluing it to the front of the card, the Queen was attached with foam pads and I used glossy accents on the heart head dress and her scepter.

After adding some moving eyes and the heart shaped confetti around her head I finished it off with the sentiment.

Inside the card I added a close up of the Queen and a pun about losing your head, that's what she famous for after all!

I hope you like it.

Always Wear A Happy Face

                  I wanted to try a new digi so I went with Amanda's new Alice in wonderland ones. I went with the   cat as you can see. I made the card base with my cricut machine. Next I shaded around the cat with my copics and cut out the stars with my cricut .Added some ribbon and buttons that I picked up at hobby lobby . Last but least added the sentiment which  was  from crafty spouts. I hope you enjoyed my cute colorful card. Thanks for stopping buy.

Love is Eternal

Bookmarks have been my project(s) this week and I made this one using A.J.'s Digi Shoppe's digital Hearts paper and the Foxes freebie that was available in February's A.J.'s Digi Shoppe Newsletter.
Front and Back pictured
I love that A.J.'s Digi Shoppe now offers its fabulous digis in color as well as black and white.  I printed the digis much smaller than I would have if I had to color them in by hand.  I also have been inspired by the many varieties of hearts paper that Amanda created, these two are particularly fun.

Acrylic Stamp (sentiment): Autumn Leaves Stampology
Paper: Staples Cardstock
Inks: Colorbox pigment ink
