A Cutie!

Here is Marg's very cute Girly Girl ATC. Marg has used a a doll type image with some cut out clothing to dress her with. She has places it on a print background that looks like a story from what I can read. I shall have to ask Marg what her bottom border was made with.

Week 42 - Create a Girly ATC

Here is my example for week 42.
I have stamped the background with a bit of the Darkroom door Music stamp, a script stamp, plus a definition (Blossom) stamp from Stampin up. a strip of pink ribbon runs down the left hand side The little girl on the phone is a fussy cut, her thought bubble is punched from a piece of patterned paper (it is hard to see the butterfly in the circle in the scan), and 3 small pink blings join the bubble to the girl. Busy girl is printed on a scrap of pink cardstock.

Don't you just love Marg's girl, and identify with her need for a coffee? LOL.... never fear though, the Cafe is near at hand and coffee cups are swirling around the background.

2 Inches of Art ... Inchies on an ATC!

Here are 2 inchies....one from Marg and one from Tracey. Both ladies have put 2 inchies on their ATC.
Tracey's Atc has a favorite of hers paper background, her inchies have been stamped and embossed, with Flower Soft as a border. She has printed hand-written random words over the ATC
Marg's ATC has music themed inchies on a very pretty flower patterned background. The border at the base of the ATC looks like Marg has punched it.

Week 41- Cheers!

So sorry I am running late this week, but I was away in Melbourne all last week, and only got home on Tuesday.... consequently everything is running behind!
This week it is time to add a drink or two to your ATC. Now, it doesn't have to be alcoholic. It can be soft drinks (soda) , tea/coffee, or whatever takes your fancy.... even aqua pura!
My ATC is a simple one.... some stamped words and marks from the edge of the stamp pad form the background. I stamped and fussy cut the champagne flute image, which was coloured in with a glitter gel pen. Up in the corner 2 yellow flowers, with bling flower centres and glitter gel pen edges. ATC edge was inked. Inks used were Tim Holtz Distress inks Fired Brick and Walnut Stain.

Week 40 – Add an Inchie (or 2) to your ATC


spring has sprung

This week we are adding one (or more) inchies to  your ATC. Inchies, for anyone who may not know, are miniature  “works of art” one inch x 1 inch square, it can be as simple or as complicated as you feel confident in doing. A simple stamping, or a tiny image on some patterned paper, or whatever you are comfortable doing.

My ATC has a spring theme, as per my latest embossing folder (from Crafty Concepts), which has been tinted with Tim Holtz distressing inks in various colours. The words “Spring has Sprung” are down one side. The inchie is a Bee, with the words “Buzz” and “Busy” on it. All edges have been inked with Timber Brown Stazon.
