Meow ATC

Hello, everyone!  I made another ATC! This one coordinates with the two I shared on my Happy Little Stampers Guest Designer post, so now I have a set of three! I used the left-over flowers and patterned paper, and I added a kitty!  I have been making a lot of ATCs lately.  I find it appealing to work on such a small scale.  For those who are new to ATCs, or Artist Trading Cards, they measure 3.5" x 2.5" and can be given to crafty friends with happy mail, which is exactly what I did with this one.  Now that it has been received, I am sharing it.

Products used:
  • Stamps:  Flowers (Happy Little Stampers Doodled Flowers clear stamps), sentiment (The Greeting Farm Purr-fect Cats), grass (free with magazine)
  • Dies:  Memory Box Pinpoint Rectangle Layers, Lawn Fawn Grassy Border, Cat Die
  • Patterned paper:  My Mind's Eye Love Me, Martha Stewart Crafts Love Notes, Pebbles We Belong Together, Simple Stories Snap Color Vibe
  • Ink: Lawn Fawn Jet Black, Versamark
  • Accessories:  Embossing folder (double hearts), Tim Holtz Bow Punch, Ranger white embossing powder, Posca white paint maker, heart gems (from my Dollarama stash)

Here is a photo of all three of my ATCs.  I made a mini Pocket Letter to hold them, and my crafty friend has received the happy mail!


If you're looking for ATC inspiration, check out Janis at Her Peaceful Garden. She is having an ATC party this month, with weekly themes. So far, there's a challenge for Cats, Chickens, and Teapots! There will be another new theme on Monday and I can't wait to see what it is! I'll be linking this Meow ATC to Janis's Cats link-up.

What a lovely mini-pocket letter for your friend!!! I adore the muted colors for this set. The kitty one, of course, is my fave....with its sweet and slightly smug expression. :) I have that same paper you are using as a backdrop for your cards, but I have only used one piece from the set. The fur print is amazing!!

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