ATC with Spellbinders

Artist Trading Cards

I love trading ATC. I get to collect art from all my favorite artist. Any medium is welcome the only rule is the size, the same size as a base ball trading card (2 ½ by 3 1/2 ). I have ATC made from fabric by my quilter friends and paper by scrapbooking friend, stamp, beaded, made from metal, painted, collaged, photographed and the list goes on and on.

Not only are they great to receive they are a blast to make. The size makes them easy and very cheep to make. I created all these ATC’s using only 4 sheets of cardstock and 4 sheets of printed paper.

I embossed an alphabet brass stencil (it's very old I don't know where I got it) onto green cardstock, this is very easy to do in the wizard. I cut/embossed spellbinders S4 130 Classic Rectangles and sm S4 131 Classic Scallop Rectangles from some pattern paper, green cardstock and off white cardstock. The stamp is from Rubbernecker Stamps, which i stamped first in green then slightly off set in black. A spellbinders doodle was cut/ embossed out of copper cardstock. Add s finishing touch of a ribbon.

I’ll tell you how to do a few more of these tomorrow.

Hi Jeni -- just discovered your blog from the link from Spellbinders. Love your ATCs -- what a great idea to use the alphabet brass stencil for a background. I always thought the alphabets would be too fiddly to use but now see I will have to watch for one as a background element. Looking forward to your upcoming new die reveal.

Hello Jeni - Just found your blog from Spellbinders. I LOVE your ATCs - they are so unique and beautiful. I trade ATCs, too. Thanks for the wonderful inspiration. So sorry to hear about your grandfather. My sincere condolences. You have made a beautiful reminder of him.
