Alice's look into wonderland

In Keeping with this month's Blank page Muse's Weird and Wonderful theme, I decided to create a Art Journal page. What is more weird and wonderful than the world of Alice in Wonderland? I truly believe its a world where anything can happen. 
I chose to combine Blank Page Muse's Alice in Wonderland Characters Set 1 & Set 2 Art Rubber Stamps with Archival Inks and Glimmer Mist watercolor sprays.  I was inspired thinking that Alice was sneaking a peek down the rabbit hole which is why she is upside down. 
Supplies 
Watercolor paper
Archival Inks
Glimmer Mist
Scrap Paper
Start by tearing a piece of scrap paper to mask your paper. 
Stamp Diamond background from Blank Page Muse Classic Spark Rubber Stamp Set over mask to create border. 
 Mist Paper are desired.
 Once Dry splatter with water as desired.
I hope you are inspired to get a little weird and wonderful with your Blank page Muse Stamps.

Bible Verse Wallet Cards

Greetings!   I was recently asked to create decorations for a Ladies Day event at church.  The invitation had poppies on them and the organizer really wanted to bring in the poppy theme!   and I thought I can do that!  So I am sharing this  quick idea for using your Blank Page Muse stamps to create Bible Verse Pocket cards.  I was able to create about 110 of these in a few hours!  While the bible verse are from another set, they could be easily printed from your printer.
Supplies
Archival Ink
Watercolor Paper
Kraft Card stock
Distress Inks
To create these in bulk, I started by pre-cutting my watercolor paper (3 3/4 x 2 3/4 inches) and Kraft Card stock mats (3 x 4). Stamp the poppy from Blank Page Muse Big Bold Blossoms Flowers & Sentiments Art Rubber Stamp Sheet Set by Daniella Hayes on both edges of card.
Using 2 colors of distress ink Paint flowers with water color brush.  IT IS OK TO GO OUTSIDE THE LINES.  Paint quickly and roughly.
 Stamp or print verse over stamped images and mat to finish.

Squirrely Thank You



 Greetings Chris here sharing this "Squirrely" thank you card!  I just love this new Autumn Oasis Line  from Dare 2B Artzy.  I love the twist on the autumn colors bringing in the blues, both dark and light and avocado green colors! and PAISLEYS! For this cute card I started by stamping my squirrel from the Squirrel Stamp Set onto my tag with Dare 2B Artzy Totally Black Premium InkI added my colored tag on top of  Autumn Oasis paper blocks that were matted onto coordinating card stock. Then added a bow to finish!   I hope you are inspired to get Artzy with you Dare 2B Artzy Stamps!

Customizing a Haunted House Kit with ScraPerfect



Greetings! Are you like me and buy lots of little kits only to never break them out!  I picked up this Haunted House kit a few years back with ever intention of  "making it my Own" and not just piecing it together.  Well fast forward a few years and it was still sitting in my crafty closet.  

So today I am going to share how I cutomized this kit to make it fit my style using all my favorite ScraPerfect supplies! 


 Paint the Haunted House and precut papers to fit rooms.  (the papers were one of the only kit supplies I used).
 Using ScraPerfect's Best Glue Ever with the non-clog writing tip add glue to adhere papers.
 Using the ScraPerfect's Embellie Gellie made picking up the papers super quick and easy!

 Add a spider web punched border using the ScraPerfect's Best Glue Ever.


 Paint/stain chipboard frame.  Using ScraPerfect's Best Glue Ever, add accent marks and let dry until clear.

Once dry add ScraPerfect Transfer Foil to accent and distress frame. 


  Continue embellishing rooms.





 When Adding stickers, don't forget to use the ScraPerfect Perfect Crafting Pouch to remove the sticker's stickiness and keep it from sticking in unwanted locations.








 I love the ScraPerfect's s Best Glue Ever was the only glue I needed for this project!  It adhered moss, glass, metal, paper, cotton balls, foil, and chipboard!

I hope SraPerfect's [roducts inspire you to get creative with your craft supplies.
