Welcome! I started this blog because I love to craft. I dabble with scrap booking, and card making. I love bending, folding and tweaking paper. I try other crafts, too. I hope to share some projects with you.

Rubber Stamp-N-Sticker ATC Swap

   I joined a swap called Rubber Stamp and Sticker. Both were to be used on the card that you made. I thought it would be good to use a rubber stamp once again, and stickers...I have a ton of those. So I jumped in.

THE ATC I MADE



   I started with a plain white card stock background. I first heat embossed with white embossing powder the tulip and leaves. Then using a toner pen I wrote "Be Happy". I placed a piece of gold foil over it and then ran it through a laminator. This was a new experience for be because I had never done either process before. Then using chalk I lightly colored the background light blue. I then chalked the tulip and leaves. Then using an ink pad I colored the outside edges. In finishing I placed a butterfly sticker hovering above the tulip. It was fun making this card because I got to experiment with processes that I had never used before. I think that my experiment worked out just fine. Everything worked out the way I had hoped. 

THESE ARE THE ATC'S I RECEIVED

   I think the cards that I received show that the others enjoyed this swap as much as I did. I hope that you enjoyed seeing them as much as I did.

Take Care

  1. Kathy, so sweet to see my work on your blog! Thats so cool! Thank you...a first time for me! Anyway I just want to let you know how I made the background, I used a paisley stamp and then embossed it. I then used gelatos and spread it around by rubbing it in with my finger, then took a wipe and wiped off the embossed areas. Thank you again for publishing my work.

  2. Text is one of those elements of the sticker printing that, if it is powerful, would leave a long lasting impression on the reader. custom buttons pins
