    We’re All Mad Here & New Alice Collage Sheets!

    Filed under Alice in Wonderland, Collage Sheets, Giveaways, Laura Carson, Newsletters


    We’re all mad here at Alpha Stamps, and the maddest of us all is Design Team Member Laura Carson. Who else could design a set of awesome, Alice in Wonderland Tarot Cards AND a Diorama AND coordinating collage sheets? See what I mean? The woman is quite mad, but we wouldn’t have it any other way!

    Note: Laura has made a new Alice Tarot Deck.

    “I’m kicking off the New Year with a trip to Wonderland where anything is possible. When I saw the Star Crossed Lovers Kit at Alpha Stamps all I could think of was Alice, and with a set of Alice tarot cards you can unlock your own future.”

    What’s not to love about the tarot cards? The bases of the cards are made from Blank Playing Cards. The Star-Crossed 12×12 Collection Pack and the Star-Crossed 6×6 Paper Pad have the perfect palette for Alice-themed projects with a lot of red, black and aqua blue. Laura’s two new collage sheets, We’re All Mad Here and Wonderland, go with the new papers beautifully. Guess what? There’s also a 62 piece, Wonderland Set Download, too. (The frames you see on each card are from the Wonderland Collage Sheet and the Wonderland Set Download.)

    The Wonderland digital image set includes all of the images in both the We’re All Mad Here and the Wonderland Collage Sheets along with 14 more images (and silhouetted .png files so they’re a breeze to layer over each other for digital collages). Just imagine how much fun you could have falling down the rabbit hole with all those images!

    For instance: as much fun as Laura had creating her We’re All Mad Here Diorama (see photo below). You know I have to ask, as I always do when speaking about Laura: When does she sleep?!

    One of my favorite elements from the diorama is the lacy paper heart atop the house of cards. It’s cut out from the new and on sale Die-Cut Red Lacy Heart Wraps that is actually meant for wrapping cupcakes, but the die-cut hearts are perfect for using in a collage. (As you can see!)

    Of course, Laura explains on her blog how she made everything, including the tarot cards AND the adorable house of cards in her diorama. Before you run on over to Laura’s wonderland, here’s a list of the supplies she used. There is a FREE download for you if you’d like to make your own tarot cards on her blog so hurry, hurry… don’t be late!(And don’t forget to come back (or just scroll down) to enter today’s Giveaway.)
