Dorothy's Adventures in Oz

Dorothy had many adventures in Oz, including the one that took her to the witch's castle.  Although it's never mentioned, I like to think her spooky castle had gargoyles.  All of the best scary castles do!
This card was super easy to make.  The "castle wall" is a brown polka dot pattern from a Glitz paper stack and brown ink for shadows.  Each of the figures and the door were stamped on a brown marbled paper.   I was hoping for a nighttime shadow effect.  The bottom of the door frame doubles as a base for the gargoyle statue.

Late for Tea Again!

The White Rabbit is running late again, will the other guests be mad because of his lack of punctuality or curiously curious as to why?

Don't you just love Alice in Wonderland...........I do and I just love playing with the stamps of this theme from the Mailbox Muse Alice's Utterly Mad Tea Party.......today I have made a simple tag.


Supplies: Alice Mailbox Muse Stamp Set Tags Glitz Papers Watercolor Pencils Water Brush Ink Adhesive Seam Binding/Ribbon Stain
I started by stamping out images onto white cardstock, cutting out and coloring with my Watercolor Pencils.

Taking a tag I used this as a template to cut out a piece of paper to fit, and another Alice Theme Scrap of Paper to simply layer.  I stuck these all together on the tag and inked the edges.

I then placed and adhered my colored images.
Lastly taking a piece of seam binding I dyed this with Distress Stain to a color to complement the tag.


And added this to my tag.

Dragonfly Dreams Desk Accessory

Hello everyone!  Barbara here with more stamping ideas using the Mailbox Muse stamp sets.  Today I am using the Muse Dragonfly stamp set with a really fun substrate from the Square Coaster Book w/chain.  You could use it to display a small calendar, but I wanted to make something to sit on my desk that I could look at every now and then and make me smile.  This little piece did it for me.  What do you think?



Paint both sides of one coaster with Carbon chalk paint; let dry.





Use a spatula to spread the Aleene's Tacky Glue unevenly over the coaster, leaving some areas thicker and some areas thinner for a variety of crackle effects.  Do not let the glue dry completely, just until it is tacky.




Apply a coat of Vintage chalk paint over the glue surface, but do not brush over it more than once or twice.  Don't worry about your brush strokes or uneven paint coat.  It is best not to over work the  paint.

As the paint dries, you will see the cracks develop.  


I decided to add a bit of soft co…
