Two ATC's (WT208)

Today's Ways To Use It Challenge was to make ATC's. I love to make those little things, and they're so handy for making quickie cards! When I made these two, I was thinking of the little poem, "First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes {name} with a baby carriage!" The first ATC is all white, but it's two layers. The top layer is embossed. The flower came from the Dollar store (six per package), and I used sheer ribbon. The sentiment really said, "Love you," on the stamp, but I only colored the "love" part. I punched it out with the Word Window Punch, added a brad, and wrapped it around the ATC.
  • Stamps: Short & Sweet
  • Papers: Whisper White
  • Ink: Basic Black Marker
  • Accessories: Big Shot, CB Birds & Swirls EF, Word Window Punch, White Brad, Flower Embellishment, Sheer White Ribbon

The second ATC has a Barely Banana base with Whisper White over that. The white was embossed with Swiss Dots. I can't seem to put that little giraffe stamp down! This time, I colored it with Celery and Banana Markers, cut it out, and popped it up on tiny pieces of Dimensionals. The stars are punched with a tiny punch and popped up, and the sentiment panel is popped up as well. Thanks for visiting my blog today!

  • Stamps: Animal Crackers

  • Ink: Black Stazon; Markers: Certainly Celery, Barely Banana
  • Accessories: Big Shot, CB Swiss Dots EF, Snips, Dimensionals, Word Window Punch, Tiny Star Punch, 1/8" White Satin Ribbon
