ATC Swap at Rebel Stampers

Evening all.  I've spent a lovely day in Cardiff visiting Mum and Dad today, so haven't managed to do any crafting.  I thought I would share with you some atc's that I have recently created for swaps over at Every month there are 2 atc swaps - 1 based on the free stamp in that month's Craft Stamper.  The 2nd is based around a theme, chosen a year out by one of the lovely contributors.  

The first atc pictured here is based around the theme of nursery rhymes - at first I didn't have a clue!!!  I kept putting it off and off and then remembered that I have a cute set of Hero Arts stamps with the little girl on them, and I also have a wooden stamp set - one says 'sugar and spice' (which is featured here) and the other is 'slugs and snails'.  I really like how this atc turned out (though I did have to Google 'nursery rhymes' many times).

The second atc is based on the theme of 'masks' - here I used a button mask for the background, coloured with distress ink.  For the main image stamp, I created a foam stamp by die cutting the Tim Holtz 'Sewing Room' alterations die onto foam and then using this as a stamp.  This is a fabulous way of making more out of your cutting dies.  I then used a dot mask over this and finished with embellishments.

The final atc is based on the free Craft Stamper stamp from February - here I used Tim Holtz paper as a backing - and stamped the image onto more Tim Holtz paper - finished by embellishing with the cute gold wings in the picture!  I think it shows that you don't have to do much to make an atc look artistic!

Right, I think I may be able to squeeze an hour or so of crafting in!

Talk soon....
