Flower ATC

The base of this ATC is a recycled note card. I used cutting dies (flowers and branch) from Craft sensations. I coloured the flowers with prisma color verithin pencils and twin markers. Glue gems are a nice finishing touch to this ATC.

Wings ATC

I cut a scalloped circle into wings; the background is made using acrylic paints and I added a border line to the ATC and a glue gem flower to the wings.

Stamped ATC

Using several clear stamp from Craft sensations, sets used " Fly if you dare" and "Not perfect, but unique".

ATC mail themed

Recycling old stamps.

Card making challenge #38

I am using cute papers for this card. It is the first time that I am using this deco block. The colours are matching and I welcome that, because I have to use two pieces of designer papers on this card. The base of the card should be of a darker colour. I didn't want to use my black card stock and I looked around in my stash. I once received a note card and I already had cut the note card to re-use the card stock of it. So this is a nice opportunity to do so. The card stock is almost black with dark brown old lettering. I will use this as a base for all the pieces and adhere it on the card base. The card base will be of kraft card stock but the dark base will cover the card base totally and will not be seen from the front of this greeting card.

Most of the time I have pieces of card stock and designer paper left. I create  small note cards with these pieces, just to use all papers:)

Purse gift card holder

These are two very cute gift card holders. They can be used to put gift cards in it or just money. But another idea is to use this holder for a teabag. Just cute;)

Masculine pockets for gift cards

These masculine pockets can be used as gift card holders or to put money in the slot. This pocket can also be used as a tea bag holder. These are small and nice pockets and they are so easy to make. I used a label paper punch to make the slot and I used the cut to stamp the greeting on it. I ink embossed the three pockets with ctmh exclusive inks ~ grey wool. The greetings are from a Hero arts clear stamp set and are stamped with ctmh exclusive inks ~ black.

Another batch

It was time or another batch of shea cream, since we're out of stock;))

Chalkboard technique

On this ATC I stamped an image on black paper using white pigment ink. Then I coloured over the image with prismacolor verithin pencils. I didn't wait for the pigment ink to dry, but the pigment ink didn't smudge. The white lines from the pigment ink is still showing. I finished the ATC by adding card board to create a sturdy backing (kraft card stock) to my ATC.
