My Very First ATC's!!!


I don't think I've ever shown you these!! A bunch of the MFT Design Team Girls did an ATC swap and I joined in! I was a little scared and intimidated because a) I'd never made a set of them before and b) I mean come on, these were the MFT Girls!!! Gack!!!

So I went over to the Resource section on SCS and followed Jen's tutorial on how to cut an 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of cardstock into 10 cards. That's how many we had to make. That got me started.

The set that I was signed up to use was Friends Fur-ever, so I stamped the main image ten times on Wausau bright white cardstock and coloured them in, then cut them all out. The ATC bases are Brocade Blue with a layer of Real Red on top. Then I made the smallest layer from So Saffron, sponged around the edges with SS ink and paper pierced the frame. I stamped the sentiment on them all and attached a piece of pawprint twill with a brad, then pop dotted the Saffron layer. I adhered the main image and added some Xmas Red Stickles on the dog's collar. I signed and numbered the back of each of the cards and sent them on their merry way! I hope the other DT members thought they were okay!



Today I will be packing a few things as we will be taking off for a couple of days. Al and I both have several days off from work, so we are taking Emileigh and going up to Northern Michigan for a little mini-holiday. We're going to do some hiking and picture-taking and of course some shopping, but mainly we'll be relaxing. I need some of THAT!!

I'll be back tomorrow with my Friday Sketchers challenge card. It's my week to provide the sketch, so I hope you like it. Have a stampin' good day!!

Really like your first ATC. It's adorable! I especially like how you cut out the tail and have it hanging off the edge just a tad. Too Cute!

Hey Kim....love the ATCs. I have collected over 50 in swaps in such a short time. You did a wonderful job with them. I am sure you will be making more. Maybe you and I can swap some some time. Have fun on the hiking trip and share photos of nature with us. I love nature.
Have fun,
