A Vintage Inspired Alice in Wonderland Tag

 Hi all, Monique here for today's inpsiration using Blank Page Muse Rubber Stamps.

My first introduction with Disney, other than Mickey and Donald, was Alice in Wonderland. My mother had 2 Disney books saved from her childhood, one was Snow White and the other was Alice. They were old books and a special edition from a Dutch Magazine in 1955, they had the Disney movie illustrations in them , decorated with gold leave, very pretty. They where kept at my grand parents house and when I was old enough to be able to read them , they where given to me.

 Although I liked Snow White, I absolutely loved the weirdness of the Alice book. From that moment on I was an Alice fan.

When Alice was re released on video tape and later DVD , the love for Alice was passed on to my daughter, and we both like to collect Alice in Wonderland books and items. 

So when I saw the Alice in Wonderland stamps at Blank Page Muse they had to be in my collection :-). I chose set 1 because it also has the Dodo on it. (I also looooove Dodo's lol)

Blank Page Muse has quite a collection of Alice stamps, there is also a wonderful set by Rick St.Dennis,  a Steampunk set by Emily Grant, and of course  set 2 of Alice in Wonderland Characters.  The one I used is set 1 .

 The vintage vibe of these Alice sets is perfect for this month's theme, so I decided to use them to make a tag.

Supply list:

Blank Page Muse stamp sets:

*Art Journalling SC 0021 by Terri Sproul

*Alice Wonderland Characters set 1 (SC50)

Rice Paper Collage Card

Happy New Year!  Betty here starting 2021 with an Asian-inspired card. Today I am using rice paper as the background for my card. The rice paper being used today for arts and crafts is not made out of rice. It is made from bark fibers of a mulberry tree. This rice paper is very thin, but strong since it is fibrous and makes a beautiful background. Add a stamp from Blank Page Muse and you have this gorgeous card! This red rubber stamp is called Geisha Collage and when stamped with black ink, it just makes it pop! This card will fit in an A7 size envelope.

This month's challenge theme is Vintage/Classic. This card is easy to make and can be done in less than an hour, but it looks like you spent hours making it. Try making one and entering it into the challenge to win a prize!

  • Blank Page Muse Stamp: Geisha Collage
  • Rice paper: Stamperia, Branch & Writings
  • Kraft cardstock (base card): 6"H x 4-5/8"W
  • White cardstock (card front): 5-3/4"H x 4-1/4"W
  • White cardstock (lining inside card): 5-3/4"H x 4-1/4"W
  • Black cardstock (card mat): 4-3/8"H x 5-7/8"W
  • Black ink pad (dye or hybrid)
  • Glue stick - ensure it drys clear (do not use liquid glue on rice paper)
  • Scissors
  • Distress ink - Vintage Photo
  • Distress ink applicator
  • Your favorite adhesive
  • Embellishments (optional)
    • D-ring picture hanger - I used Stampin' Up's Hodgepodge Hardware that has been retired. You can buy picture hangers at the hardware store that come in brass. Color it with a brown alcohol marker to make it look vintage.
    • Brad
    • Chinese coin - Purchased from my local craft store. You can find coins on Etsy.
    • Brown twine - 6 inches
    • 3 Black plastic rhinestones or enamel dots
  • First determine what part of the rice paper you want as the background. Place the white card stock underneath the rice paper to assist placement. Fold the rice paper over the cardstock to mark it or use a pencil. Do not cut yet!

  • Put an even layer of glue with the glue stick onto the white cardstock (card front). Cover the entire cardstock.
  • Adhere the cardstock onto the backside of the rice paper where you marked it.

  • Trim the rice paper leaving 1/2" all the way around.
  • Miter the corners by gluing them down (use glue stick) as shown below.

  • Glue (use glue stick) the edges down
  • Press down gently on the rice paper with your fingers to make sure the paper is adhered.
  • Stamp your image onto the rice paper. I used a stamp positioner to ensure the image is very dark.

  • Distress ink the edges of the rice paper.

  • Using a paper piercer, poke a hole into the card to add the picture hanger. Secure the picture hanger with the brad.

  • Using the twine, tie the coin to the picture hanger

  • Using your favorite adhesive, adhere the card front to the black cardstock then adhere onto the base card. Adhere the white cardstock to the inside of the card, add the rhinestones, and you are finished! 

I love using rice paper and will be making some more in the future. It's quick and easy and makes beautiful cards. I hope you will give it a try!  

Thank you for stopping by and have a great day! ~Betty~

Dimensional Cactus Window Card

 I love to add unique elements to my cards.

 Today I have a cactus window card using the Southwest Cactus Succulents Potted Cluster stamp.

Loving all the color and dimension created for this colorful card.

Check out this sweet grouping! I colored the images with Copic markers and duplicated the three pots on the left to use on the front of the card.

The base was created using the Block Pattern Stencil, distressed inked and shifted to create this pattern. I used a circle die cut to cut through both the patterned paper and an A2 card base.

I have a short video documenting the process:

When I don't have the right sentiment, I create one on my computer and print on matching paper.  The card was assembled by trimming the Block Pattern piece to 3.75 x 5.0 and attaching to the base. The cactus piece was attached on the inside first so the trio of planters could be attached to the front. I did fussy cut the trio plus a blank white set for the inside.  The sentiment finishes the card nicely!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I'd love to have you follow/subscribe on my social media sites Instagram, Facebook, Blogger and You Tube.  Be well. Be creative!

Sugar Skulls Matchbox with Surprise!

 Hello, on the blog today with Blank Page Muse Stamps, a wonderful red rubber company with lots of awesome stamps! I decided to use the sugar skulls stamps in several creative ways this month, there are all kinds of images in this set allowing you to come up with all kinds of uses!

Supplies - 

Versafine Clair Nocturne Ink
Tombow Markers in various colors
Ranger Archival Ink in various colors
Black Paint
Red Glitter
White glue

First of all, paint the matchbox with the black acrylic paint and let dry. As the box dries, stamp out the flowers (2 small and 1 large) from the Day of the Dead set in various colors of ink, stamp the sugar skill with black ink and then color with the markers. Stamp the heart icon and color with the markers. After coloring all of the images, fussy cut them out.

Next, glue the flowers to the top front of the matchbox and then using foam tape add the skull slightly below the flowers, so there is a ring of flowers around the skull, set aside. 

Now using foam tape, build up the back of the heart icon, set it aside. 

Now, add some glue to the bottom left corner and add lots of red glitter to the inside of the box. Tap excess glitter out of the box, then add the heart icon to the box.

Here is the finished project!

Vintage Inspired Altered Notebook

Hi everyone, Monique here, with an easy to make gift idea.

 I love notebooks, you can never have enough notebooks. Not sure what it is what I like about them, , but mostly it is the feel of the book when you hold it in your hands or it's just a nice looking cover, but they always make me happy.

That is why even in the digital age a notebook is a great gift, and if you personalize the covers to the receivers taste, it is usually a highly appreciated gift. Everyone needs notebooks in their life, even if you don't use them to write in them, they are just nice to look at :-).

This one started out as a kraft covered small notebook, the perfect size to carry with you in your purse or pocket, and it fits in an envelope so easy to send as happy mail!

Supply list:
the following Blank Page Muse stampsets;

a notebook with blank cover, I used one with a kraftpaper cover
Cardstock in white and turquoise
Distress ink in blues, greens and browns
Waterproof stamp ink in black, grey and blue
A die cut, scissors or punch with a scallop motive
Patterened paper or book paper

For detailed instructions, see video:
