Scenes of Alice Slimline

Scenes of Alice Slimline

CBK May24-1

Today I have a slimline card depicting different scenes that Alice encounters.  I've used the Alice and Tea Party stamp sets, paired with some Champagne Stardust, to create it.  I love slimline cards in that it allows one to have one very long scene in it or several smaller scenes, which is what I have opted for today.

I will often try to put 3 of the same item or color on a card, so I used 3 different Alices in 3 different situations: one in which she is falling down the rabbit hole, one in which she encounters the "drink me" bottle on a table and the other in which she has become smaller and encounters the "eat me" cookies that ultimately make her bigger again.

CBK May24-2

I used the Trinity Stamps slimline windows & banners dies to cut a banner out of white cardstock and a slimline panel with windows out of Lawn Fawn speckled blue  cardstock.  I decided to make a shaker card to give the card more visual interest; so I placed the window pieces onto a 8.5 inch by 3.5 inch card base, poured some Champagne Stardust on to it, surrounded it with double sided foam strips and adhered an 8 inch by 3 inch acetate piece, and then adhered the scalloped slimline panel to it to trap all the sequins.

I colored all the images from the Alice and Tea Party stamp sets very simply; I used Y21, YR21, B63 and E00 copics for Alice. The table was cut down to show partially; everything was adhered on top of the acetate and panel. Finally I added the sentiment and glued the twine with connect glue in a pleasing manner.

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Running in Place Card
Hi everyone, Christine here.  I'm here with a slimline card using the Queen of Hearts stamp set. I have used this stamp set quite a lot, but had not used my favorite sentiment from this set yet.  It is "My dear, here we must run as fast as we can, just to stay in place. And if you wish to go anywhere you must run twice as fast."
