Alice is So Charming

Thursday, December 13th, 2012

Wow, I’ve been a terrible blogger lately, sorry! Right before Thanksgiving my 93 year old Grandfather passed away and then I’ve been all caught up getting ready for the holidays, it’s been a hectic (and sad) time.

Right before all this happened though I spent a lot of time getting new jewelry pieces made and am just now getting them on-line. I made a bunch of single soldered pendants and also many charm necklaces too.

Here’s a few new Alice in Wonderland themed necklaces, all currently available in my Etsy shop (along with many more new items as well).

Wonderland and Giveaway

Tuesday, August 3rd, 2010

Over at my blogging job as stamp editor at Craft Gossip I got the opportunity to review (and keep!!:)) a Silhouette die cutting machine. I am in love with this machine, it’s amazing! The generous people at Silhouette not only gave one to me but are also giving one away over at Craft Gossip. I wanted to give my readers a heads up, so follow this link and read my review and then leave a comment (at Craft Gossip not here) to be entered.

Here is my first project made with my new Silhouette, no surprise it’s an Alice and Wonderland theme! :) I made an accordion card and cut out all the fun Wonderland characters with card stock and patterned paper with the Silhouette.

I recently got some adorable stamps from The Greeting Tree, they are really cute versions of characters from Alice in Wonderland and I thought they were the perfect size for art cards (2 1/2″ x 3 1/2″). Each character was stamped on white cardstock with black staz-on ink and colored using colored pencils and orderless mineral spirits for blending. I cut each out and added them to layers of vintage book paper and cardstocks. Plus I added a stamped embellishment to each, Alice got glittery mushrooms, the Mad Hatter got a glossy tea cup and the White Rabbit got a clock with movable clock hands (from Tim Holtz). I also ran a very thin strip of white core cardstock (from Close To My Heart) through my label maker and sanded them to make each card a name label.

I love Alice in Wonderland, the books, the movie, the artwork, it’s one of my favorite inspirations. Awhile ago I got some stamps of Tenniel’s illustrations from Alice in Wonderland from a company that is sadly no longer in business so I’m glad I got them when I did.  Anyway I got them out the other day and made some cool Artist Trading Cards (ATC’s) with them.

All of them are 3 1/2″ x 2 1/2″ on a base of cardstock and vintage children’s book pages. The images were stamped and then colored using Prisma colored pencils and a blending solution called Gamsol (you can get it from Inky Antics: you use an artists blending stump to blend and soften the color pencils, I love the look and control it gives.

The first one is the White Rabbit, holding his pocket watch. I stamped some clock images on the background page and added a real watch crystal with some real watch parts inside, they move when you shake the card :)


The next is Alice dressed as the Queen, wearing a gold crown and holding a golden scepter, I colored them with a gold gel pen so that they are a shiny gold. I also added some red roses (already painted red by the cards) and also a gold charm of a castle.


This last one is my favorite, I love the part of the book where Alice drinks from the bottles and grows large and then tiny. Here is Alice after she’s large looking at the bottle, it’s an actual tiny glass bottle with a cork stopper filled with tiny blue beads and glitter and I tied around a tiny tag that says “Drink Me”.
