ATC and Envelope

ATC & ATC/Gift Card Envelope 

CUTplorations January Challenge

Drawing inspiration from the wintery scene above I created an artist trading card and envelope for the challenge, using Cutplorations ATC /Gift Card Envelope Die.

I used a tree builder stamp set, paper dolls, holiday talk metallic stickers to create my atc and envelope.


Distressing both atc & envelope in brushed pewter and black ink to finish.

I made 3 grunge style artist trading cards using distress crayons over patterned paper. 
I used distress crayons and a water brush to create the hearts, filling in the ATC's with red, orange,yellow,green,blue and pink crayons. Adding to the background using prima's note & dot grunge stamps. 
"Discover" Bold Sentiments are from Stamplorations  and was stamped in jet black ink.

Happy Creating! T.

Holiday Cheer-Special Delivery Tag

Sharing a tag today I made using a plaid stencil over Idea-ology Yuletide Paper and adding Tims Paper Dolls and Ephemera. I used peeled paint for the stencil and on the womens hat and mens coat. Pink cheeks for the lad, using festive berries. I distressed each item with black ink first. Tag was papered on both sides and distressed in peeled paint to finish.

Happy Creating! T.
