    Tim Holtz ATCs

    Hi crafters. I made a couple of ATCs for the Simon says Stamp Work it Wednesday challenge. The theme is Tim Holtz. Both started with manilla cardstock to which distress stains were applied. I then used stencils from layering set 33. The yellow one had green distress inks applied through the stencil and the pink one had paste. Next I stamped the Tim Holtz glorious bouquet stamp in green onto the yellow one. I did use gel pens on the image but it isn’t noticeable. I then glued on diecuts from coordinating scraps to both cards using: Funky floral 2, Funky floral 3 and small tattered florals dies. Finally I…

    Hi crafters. I started this one with some book paper with number tables. I sprayed it with brown and orange sprays before cutting to ATC size. I stamped a Little Birdie fine mesh stamp around the edges with ground espresso ink. I used 49 and Market Pascale’s formula in Versafine Acorn, plus Prima Seamstress in Versafine onyx black. I then copper embossed Visible Image Elemental on top. This stamp has some circles. I used a 1/16 inch hole punch to punch holes in some circles and intersections. I threaded rose gold gift twine through the holes, along with wooden beads and copper and rose gold foiled scrap paper circles. I…

    Hi crafters. These ATCs could be addictive. I used a background from my paper towel experiments. I fussy cut a photo of Sophia Loren from Marie Clair and coloured her with crayons after gluing her on. I used another phrase from Erin Lee creative Don’t Stamp set. I added some flowers cut from scraps with the Kaisercraft floral branch die and then coated it all in acrylic varnish. I am entering the Simon says Stamp Monday challenge: Artist trading cards

    ATC 2

    Hi crafters. I wanted to use the Erin Lee creative Don’t Stamp set. I found this guy in The photographer’s Handbook by Hedgecoe and Knopf. Before you worry about me cutting up books, this one was from the shop at the rubbish dump, so he was destined for landfill or pulping if I hadn’t rescued him. I started with manilla cardstock and sponged on abandoned coral and aged mahogany distress oxides. I then placed the Stamplorations tribal triangles stencil and sponged again with the same inks. I stamped on top with Versafine onyx black. The yet is from Simon says Stamp grunge alphabet. I put some colour on my guy…

    ATC 1

    Hi crafters. I’m not sure if Simon says Stamp is reading my mind. I was looking at a library book on ATCs and a couple of hours later, the Monday challenge was ATCs. I haven’t made one before, but why not? I started with a Japanese themed artist trading card. I cut a few ATC manila sized pieces of card stock. I used white water soluble crayon on the right side. I tore a piece of paper and used that while sponging a stripe of abandoned coral distress oxide on the left. I moved the mask and sponged some more. I tore some more paper and used it on the…
