A Year of ATCs? - Day 231

Today I am up to Day 230 of my 'Year of ATCs?'

Another swap - this time for ATC Swap UK on facebook.

Last month I sent off the following selection -
 from the ATCs I have made for my 'Year of ATCs'.

The theme was 'Initial of My First Name'



This month the theme is 'Pub Names' and this is the first of my 5 ATCs.


I used pink card as the base, matted with a black and white rose DP from my stash.
I used the same card behind the name and on which to stamp the rose (an individual wooden stamp from my stash). I punched this with an oval and added it on dimensionals. The name is also on dimensionals. Finally, I added a rose embellishment.

A Year of ATCs? - Day 230

Today I am up to Day 230 of my 'Year of ATCs?'


 I am making 9 ATCs to send off and swap...when my set comes back I will make a pocket letter on the theme of 'Fairground'.

For each ATC I started with a scrap of purple card cut with a Tonic ATC die.
I then added another layer cut with another Tonic die from a Brusho background.
I then added part of a big wheel die cut (the die came from Craftstash).

A Year of ATCs? Day 229

Today I am up to Day 229 of my 'Year of ATCs?'


Today's ATC is a bit special.




My great nephew Lucas drew me a picture of some 'creatures of the ocean'.
I think they are Angler Fish and Jelly Fish.



I started with a scrap of Distress Oxide background cut with a Tonic ATC die.
I cut out the image with another die and added fineliner round this.
I then added some colour with Zig real brush pens and some tiny googly eyes.

Crafty Hazelnut Extra Challenge for August - Midway post


Starting early with my Christmas cards means I am organised come November -

 well hopefully!!

This is my Midway Design Team make for the August Challenge of


Bugaboo Stamps are proud to sponsor this challenge - they are offering four digital stamps to the randomly selected winner.




Today's image is Reindeer 01





Using Serif Craft Artist 2, I combined the image with a paper from
Imagine That Snowy Overlay Papers



I printed this and cut it out with a square stitched die, adding more colour Zig real brush pens.

I added this to a square of white card,
 and then placed it on a kraft card base. 


I then made a tag to add to the top, using white and kraft card, orange ribbon
 and a Stampin Up stamp.




I then made a matching ATC - Day 227 of my 'Year of ATCs?'



I used Tonic ATC dies to cut the image and base and a Stampin Up punch to cut the words.




Do have a look at the other makes to inspire you over at Crafty Hazelnut's Extra

A Year of ATCs? - Day 222

Today I am up to Day 222 of my 'Year of ATCs?'


I was playing with Distress Oxides - adding a variety of colours to some watercolour paper in a 'rainbow' fashion. I then spritzed a stencil with water and applied it to part of the paper making a brickwork pattern. This became my background on a scrap of blue card. I then stamped the flowers on another section of the paper (not sure where this stamp came from!) and coloured them with Zig real brush pens. I cut this out and attached it along with some sparkly stickers.
