New ATC's and Ramblings

I have to say that there are some exciting things coming up in the next few days.  First of all, I only have 6 more followers to go until I reach 100.  Can you believe it?  Almost there.  I recently cleaned and organized my crafty space and I found a few more items to add to the give-away.  Be sure and tell your friends.  We're almost there!

While getting some things ready for a swap at Craft Happens (shh... that post will be coming soon), I realized that I didn't have enough ATC cards to send with the projects.  I decided to whip up a few more.  Here they are:


These are similar to my first set, but a bit simpler.  Just wait for some fancy ones coming sometime in the next few weeks!  I can't wait to share those too.  For these I used the following products:
Stamps - K. Andrew Designs "Crafty Friends"; Tim Holtz "Joyful Song"; MME "Princess Blush"
Paper - scraps from my stash
Inks - Ranger Archival Black; Distress inks - Frayed Burlap and Dusty Concord
Pens - Dusty Concord distress marker; Zig black marker
Green pearls - Want2Scrap

I am working a lot over the next few days, but here are some of the things to look forward to:

Altered Popsicle Stick Project
Altered Bingo Card Projects
ATC X2
Anniversary Cards
Birthday Cards
Altered Envelope Project
A big announcement :-)
I also hope to have another "How Do I?" segment as well.  I'm thinking a blast from the past may be in order for this one.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great day.

Okay, what's an ATC card??

Cheri said...

Diane,
ATC stands for artist trading card. It is the size of a playing or trading card (2.5X3.5)and is designed to be traded with others. It is an artistic way to share information with others. You can include any info you desire. I like to include them with my giveaways and keep them on hand to give away to let people know about my blog.

Karen, I'm glad you liked them.

So, kind of like a homemade business card. Neat! Thanks for taking the time to educate a rookie! :-)
