“Adventure” ATC

Hi there,

I created this ATC today using Core’dination cardstock, prima flowers and flower centers, velvet ribbon, and metal charm.  I embossed the cardstock using the Tropical Paisley embossing folder by Sizzix. Core’dination cardstock is so much fun to work with. The ATC is adhered to a distressed piece of corrugated board. Love the look!

Twins Keepsake

Hi There,

I had an opportunity to finish this little keepsake of the twins last night.  I started this project months ago and felt it was time to finish it.  I used prima flowers that were pre-colored and some that I airbrushed to coordinate with the project; I also added some MS butterfly punches that I stickled. Additional products used were yellow gingham ribbon, k and co. paper, CTMH acrylic tags, and the game box is a mancala board game altered to a keepsake.   I really love finding these little games and altering them to fit my craft need. Thanks for stopping by, Karen

“Cherish” Canvas ATC

Today I am sharing an ATC that I completed last night using canvas as the base.  I used a Hero Arts script as the background stamped with SU’s black chalk ink. I then added some ribbon and “cherish” charm. The next addition were the flowers.  I really like these.  I found them in the bridal section of Michael’s. The 3-d effect of the flowers are great and the wire in them make them wonderfully flexible for this project. I finished off the ATC with a little copic airbrushing.

I made this little easel card using a photo of my little ones.  I really enjoyed creating it. I used some CTMH cardstock to coordinate with the doodle paper that I chose.  I also added some pink pearl crystals by prima, "sweet" metal charm and some pink gingham.  The card measures 5 1/4 X 5 1/4 folded. Loved this!  Thanks for stopping by, K

Vintage Christmas ATC’s

Hi there, I had an opportunity to work on some more vintage ATC’s using rub-ons.  I found  these really cool rub-ons by Royal Langnickel at Michael’s and they really screamed vintage to me. So, I applied them to my ATC’s and started distressing using my old photo ink.  I stamped some Holiday greetings around them.  These can easily be turned into Holiday tags from atc’s with a few touches. You have to love versatility! Hugs, K
