Hi All, here is a post about the first ATC swap that I have ever participated in and therefore, this is the first ATC that I have ever made. I die cut some chipboard with my ATC Sizzix die and covered it with cream card stock. I used two sets of stamps from Stampin Up. One was called Bliss and the other was Charming. I used the background stamp from the Charming stamp set and stamped it out with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress Ink(all the ink was Vintage Photo). I used the word stamps (Bliss) and the butterfly from the Bliss set. I cut out the butterfly and the word and popped them up on dimensionals. I used a brown Micron pen to show the trail left behind by the butterfly. I used some scrap lace and hot glued it to the card. The sunflower was from a pack of 'handmade stickers' from our local Dollar store and I glossy accented the centre of the flower and inked it up with VP Ink. This swap took place at our local Stamp Store called Carousel Rubber Stamps. Barbi, one of the fabulous employees there organized this swap. Thanks to you Barbi!!!! We have decided as a group to continue this as a monthly swap, starting in September as the summer is so busy for every one. The theme for this swap was, 'Us'. The next one will be Fall/Autumn.
Thanks for peeking in!!!!
