I'm ATCs

ATC Card Supplies: Stamps-Bella and SU
Ink-Versamark & SU
Sticker Bling-dollar bin JoAnns

From the very first time I made these wonderful little cards I was hooked. For those of you who may not know ATC stands for Artist Trading Cards and they have been around for quite a while in the artistic world and then made there way into the stamping community. I have been in several swaps with these little gems and I am now very addicted to creating and trading them. I think the best part of these cards is being able to get 10 of them from one sheet of 8 1/2 x 11 CS see this tutorial here . Another plus is that making them is a great way to use up all those scraps of paper you have been stashing away like a chipmunk stashes away his acorns. I urge you to give these little babies a try and I think you will really enjoy them. They are easily stored in sheets made for storing baseball cards and can then be put in a three ring binder.

The ATC card I have chosen to show you today is from a Bella holiday swap I did last year with my friends from SCS/CC. I did not have any Bella stamps so my friend Amanda stamped this image for me so I could participate in this swap isn't that sweet. I received some wonderful Holiday ATCs in return in this swap.

I hope that if you have not tried this type of card I have at least planted the seed to do so. No matter what you chose to do just have fun. Have a great weekend and happy stamping.

Peace Out
