Hi guys, I'm back with a couple more ATC's from the #52cafecards challenge from Maremi's Creative Café group on Facebook. Here is my take on B is for Bubbles and C is for Coffee, the seahorse die and small talk stickers are from TH and I used my Copic markers on the coffee cup which is the stamp and die set from Heartfelt Creations. Once again I'll have the themes posted below.
Looking forward to making more of these and I hope you are too!!!
Hi everyone, glad to be back with a quick and simple project, I made an Artist Trading Card (ATC) from a challenge created by Marta in her Facebook group called Maremi's Creative Café. She set out a challenge to create 52 small cards or ATC's, with each card having its own theme. There you will find so many fun and inspiring ways to create such small pieces of art. The size I'm using is (2 1/4 x 3 1/2) same as Prima's alphabet cards, but you can use a deck of playing cards which is just a tad bigger or create your own.
The first challenge is A for Art, you can use the word or just create something inspired by it. This challenge started about a month ago and it's now on E, but there is no rush as you create at your leisure, the point is to have fun with it. Hope can join in on the challenge, if you share your project be sure to add #52cafecards so it can easily be found. Incase you don't use Facebook, below I have posted the current themes.
Hello my creative friends, I have a Christmas ATC " artist trading card" that I would like to share. This was made for swap I was in and I actually made 12. I had so much fun creating this, especially because it's for Christmas, another one of my favorite holidays. I used Tim Holtz inks, wreath die and embossing folder. I fussy cut the scroll from G45's "A Christmas Carol" paper pad, I added a Prima flower and I used the Martha Stewart punch for the branches/twigs. "A right good time to you and yours...This fair and merry Season." Enjoy...
Hi there, wanted to share a quick project I made, it's a Halloween ATC "artist trading card". I actually made this for a swap I'm in, I had 12 to make and had lots of fun putting them together. The inks, embossing powders, sentiment die and bat die are from Tim Holtz, the gothic gate die is from Poppy and the embossing folder I used is "crackle" by Darice. I did add some black glitter to the bat, but it's is hard to see in the pic.
Hi there, happy to be back with another project for my DT post for Cardz TV Gallery. I decided I wanted to make some Artist Trading Cards using Cardz TV stamps. I wanted to show how you can take Mary's stamps and pretty much make them work for any kind of project you might want to make, beyond your usual cards and paper projects.
For those of you who don't know, an artist trading card measures 3 1/2 x 2 1/5 and you can create anything you want on them. They are called artist trading cards, because they are meant to be traded with another artist's cards.
I used a lot of mixed mediums to create the textures on the background of the cards and the die cuts, like the butterfly, seahorse and so on. I did join a challenge which was to make 5 of these and then Abandon them in 5 different locations, taking pictures of where I left them... something new to me, but thought it would be fun to do.
All and all, I had a great time making these and I especially loved to show how versatile Cardz TV stamps can be!
Hi everyone, back with another project. I joined another swap on the CMB, this time for an ATC, I never knew how much fun it would be and it was so quick to put one together too. There are 14 of us in the swap, so I had to make 14 of the ATC's that were exactly the same. We each had a theme to choose, plus two materials...I chose Breaking the Rules with metal and texture medium! Well my crafty friend Jean who hosted the swap decided to surprise us by mixing it up and giving my choices to someone else and someone else's choices to me...I now had to do Vintage Fashion with burlap and mixed media. Hope they are happy with what I came up with and can't wait to see what everyone else has done!!! I used the burlap for a border and a layer under the flower, I used liquid paint on the resin flower and metallic paint on the foil petal, Copic markers for the stamped image and inks for shading.Then you have the 2 textures of ribbon, metal hanger and pearls.I also used foam tape behind the stamped image, but only in certain areas to give it some variation in hight here and there, guess I should have taken a side view. Enjoy...
