More ATC's!




I finished up the last of my 7 ATC swaps commitment! I had such a good time making these! Sorry about the poor lighting in the pictures. It has been raining all day here and I took advantage of a break in the clouds to get these photographed! Still not enough light, but I wanted to get these posted! : )

The first one is a Planes and Trains Boy theme. I used my Cuttlebug to cut out the trains and thought the background colors blue, green, beige and gray were perfect for this theme. I had another train car, but the card was too short to hold all three pieces! I really like the polka dot background paper!

The second one is a Sugar and Spice Girls theme. I stamped the image of the cute little ballerina right on the polka dotted vellum! She is from Lizzie Anne Designs. I added the flowers in the corner to hide my adhesive under the vellum! I paper pieced her tu-tu to give the card a little bit of a dimensional look.

The third card is a Sweet Treats theme! I looked through EVERY stamp I had and was not happy with anything I had for this category. Everything I had was a birthday cake! The only cupcake I had was the tiny one I used in the background here. ( ***NOTE TO SELF!!! MUST INVEST IN SOME SWEET YUMMY TREAT STAMPS!!) It was not big enough or impressive enough to be the main image so I decided to try to think outside of the box! If I couldn't stamp a yummy, gooey chocolate treat I would stamp something that some people might feel was an equivalent sweet treat!! I went for the bling! LOL I used the gigantic engagement ring from the Fiskars Wedding set! I stamped the cupcake in the background multiple times and then colored it with chalk. Then I stamped the ring and polished the diamond with Stickles! I added some additional sparkle-y bling and then sponged the edges with Temtping Turquise from SU!

I had such a blast making these ATC's! Tried one yet?! You should!!! Here is the link to a template for getting 10 cards from one 8.5 X 11 piece of paper! Have fun!
