Five More ATCs

Hi, everybody! Today I'm sharing five more ATCs!  I've been so inspired by Janis at Her Peaceful Garden, who is having an ATC party this month.  She has had four different themes, a new one each week:  All Those Cats, And the Chickens, Adorable Teapot Collection, and for the fourth and final week, it's And Then... Chocolate.  There's still time for you to join in!  The deadline is March 3.  I've had a lot of fun making ATCs lately!  If you're not sure what an ATC is, please check out this great link provided by Janis here.

For the final week of Janis's ATC party, the theme is Chocolate! Yay! Who doesn't love chocolate?!  I made three ATCs for this theme!  The stamps are from Close to My Heart - A Chocolate Affair.

I used Memory Box Pinpoint Rectangle Layers die and a Stampin' Up corner punch.

Inks used were various combinations of Memento Rich Cocoa, Ranger Archival Sepia, and Distress Oxide Vintage Photo. I sponged around the edge of each ATC with Vintage Photo.

To finish them off, I added a tiny red confetti heart to each ATC.  

Kitty Bookmark
I decided to make Janis one of my kitty bookmarks! Here it is on an ATC, hanging on to a thin strip of acetate to hold it in place. I'll be adding this ATC to Janis's cat theme linky.

I used Your Next Stamp dies: Cute Cat Bookmark Die Set and Mini Envelope Die (flower).  The embossing folder is Cuttlebug Shower Blossom.  My colour combo was inspired by Your Next Stamp Colour Challenge 83:

I made one final ATC inspired by Janis's Teapot theme, again using puffy stickers. The patterned paper is from Lots of Flowers Paper Pack. I used a small doily die, butterfly punch, and digital I Need Tea freebie from Kellie Winnell at Give a Girl a Blog.


With my chocolate ATCs, I would like to support the following challenges: Happy Little Stampers - February ATC Challenge Hearts UE; Stamped Blessings heARTful Stamping AG plus Stamp 2/2; Three Amigos Blog Hop 11 Nom Nom UE; Through the Craftroom Door AG 1/2

Janis said...

Oh, my goodness, Kitty!!! You really were inspired!! I LOVE all of these!!

The chocolate ones are so much fun...and the sentiments are just the best!!! Ha. On the Death by Chocolate one, it almost looks like there is a miniature person buried upside down in the chocolate icing with only the legs and shoes showing!! :O Those chocolate images were just the thing for this challenge. Love this set and the little red heart on each of the ATCs.

I ADORE that kitty bookmark ATC!! What a clever way to hold him on there with the little acetate belly band. Love the flower and the embossed background. Sooooooooooooooo cute!!!

The teapot ATC is just charming! What a great way to use puffy stickers without them looking too kiddish. That little doily die cut adds just the right amount of elegance. Love the big bold sentiment....sized so perfectly for an ATC!...and the exquisitely pretty background paper. Love this!!

Thank you so much for joining in my ATC Birthday Party!!!

love all your ATC!
they are so wonderful!

Karenladd said...

Yikes!! You have been taking the ATC themes and running with them! They are all so beautifully designed and that kitty bookmark has me dying of envy. With a bookmark like that, I think I would never finish my book because I would spend all my time admiring how adorable he looks hanging off a page, ha! I have also been enjoying Janis' ATC challenges this month, and it's reminded me of how much fun ATCs are to make. I used to do ATC swaps years back, but hadn't really thought of them in a long time. Now I'm motivated to work on these little projects in between my usual card making, just for fun. By the way, I really like the way you used a corner punch for the ATC corner detail...just a nice little touch.

LOVE every single one of these! I was just looking at that stamp set the other day and wondering if I'd ever use it! Love what you did with it... so much yumminess here and love that adorable kitty too. Thank you again and enjoy your weekend! I actually get to take a break from taxes and go to a stamp show today!! Can't wait! Now be sure to get over to Three Amigos and check out today's post!
