FUN at ScrapCity!!

At ScrapCity, a few of us signed up to do an ATC swap. I have NEVER made an ATC before, so I really didn't know what to do, but this is what I ended up with!


I used some Marcella paper that I got at Target a long time ago. Since it's NOT double-sided paper, I used a different sheet for the back of the card, and I just adhered them back to back. I stamped a couple of Stampin' Up stamps. The "genuine article" circular sentiment and the "I Like Your Style" stamp are both Stampin' Up images. I added some American Crafts ribbon, a small Making Memories safety pin, a rhinestone trio, a Prima, and a Making Memories button for the flower center.


This is the back side of the ATC. I added more Stampin' Up images. "Original" and "No." are once again, both Stampin' Up. I numbered the ATCs, and then I added information about me and the date created. I created that information on the computer and just printed it out. The little flower is from a Stampin' Up punch. The center of the flower is a small rhinestone.


Here's a close up of the ATC front. What do you think?


This is the back of the ATC. I have to admit, I'm pretty happy with the way these turned out!! It was fun to create!


I want to also mention that a very fun online crop is being planned at ScrapCity starting February 20th. It's going to be a Sketch Fest!! If you haven't joined ScrapCity yet . . . why haven't you? We have so much fun over there. In addition to the upcoming Sketch Fest online crop, we will also be issuing all of the February challenges in a couple of days. Of course, all of these activities have PRIZES!! I am the Sponsor Coordinator for ScrapCity, and let me tell you . . . you will DEFINITELY want to see the February prize!! It's AMAZING!! So, get over there, join up, and take a look around! You won't regret it!

So, I've got some cleaning to do, and then I'm hoping to get some creative time! I hope you have a great day, and thanks for stopping by!!

Hi Carol,

I love your ATC cards!!!! I have never made one; so cool!

I have a couple of things to tell you -- first of all, Dwain says, "Hello!" He calls you "his buddy!"

Secondly, I ordered the Circle Stamps from The Cutting Cafe' and have been having the time of my life with them. My stamping skills are pretty bad so these are just the "bestest!" I plan to order the cupcakes next!!!!!

A question: what really made me take the plunge on the stamps from The Cutting Cafe' was the card set you made. I would like to lift your "idea" and make some sets as gifts; I will not use your way that you put them together nor will I use your papers. I just wanted you to know in case I put them on my blog that I will give you credit for the idea.

Love ya, Glee LOVE YOUR GIRLS!!!!

Making ATC is kind of addictive! You made a great job on those :)

Judy said...

Your ATC's are superb! I did an ATC swap one time. And that is the one and only time that I have made ATC's. I had a really hard time with them - getting ideas.

Savitri said...

Dawn said...
