Little Bits of Fun

Today I am going to show you something a little different – well a little different for me anyway!

Those of you who are taking the current round of Stamp With Us classes may have seen a picture of a new addition to my craft space – a cute three tiered cake stand where each layer is a handy sized basket. I love it, but what they will also have seen is a very very very full scrap basket behind it. Today I decided to do something about it and rather than just tidying it all into my general card and paper stock I decided to make a project that only uses these scraps. I also challenged myself only to use the stamp sets that I currently had out.

I decided to make some Artists Trading Cards or ATC’s – these cute little cards are 2.5 x 3.5 inches and I can now confidently say a lot of fun to make. The stamp sets I had out were Live your Dreams and Happiness Always. The colours I have used include Real Red, Old Olive, Not Quite Navy, Regal Rose, So Saffron, Almost Amethyst, Sage Shadow and Elegant Eggplant. I am going to Stamparama in Stevenage tomorrow so will take these with me to see if there are any swaps going on or if anyone would like one, so if you are there make sure you say hello. I am quite excited to show you my project for Stamp With Us tomorrow so I will schedule it to post while I am out so you don’t have to wait too late! As soon as I have done that I am off to play with more scraps and make some more ATC’s and I may even allow myself some different stamps!

Happy Crafting

Bekka, your ATC's are fantastic. I have always been daunted about making these, they seem so small. you have inspired me to have a go.
Have a great day.
