A lot of my stamping friends know that I am a little addicted to ATCs (Artistic Trading Cards) ...

Reasons that I love them:
  1. They can have themes

  2. They are small
  3. They are quick and fast to make (well most of them)

  4. They fit nicely in baseball card trading sleeves (9 up)

  5. They are fun to trade/swap with others

So here are a few of my latest ones:

Cute as a Bug

Used the word from a retired TAC set called Ribbon words. This bug is a new stamp that I is made by the Stamp Barn in Ontario Canada. I fell in love with this little guy and the others in his set. Used a Scalloped Punch by Marvy and tied a black and white grosgrain ribbon on it.

Be Brilliant

This was an ATC where we had to use alcohol inks with a dragonfly stamp. I used Stream and Lettuce by Adirondack and then finished it with this favorite dragonfly stamp of mine. I have a little dragonfly fettish too ... I just love them ... stamps, embellishments, anything dragonfly! I matted this with silver and black and then rounded two of the opposite corners with a corner rounder.


For this ATC there are 12 participants. Each of us got assigned a month and had to make 12. I used the TAC set Date Disks (worked perfectly) and then used the turkey from the TAC For All Seasons set. I colored the turkey with Prisma alcohol markers and then added a cram grosgrain ribbon. I just love the way that this turned out and can't wait to see the other months that the ladies did!


I used the watermelon from a retired TAC set called Go Places with TAC's Simple Bet to spell out "sweetness". I used my prisma alcohol markers on this ATC as well and I just think the colors are so vibrant and seem to pop!

Don't you just love ATCs!!!


  1. These are great! I love them all! I am all about hoot cards these days though!

    I am working on some ATC's with hoot cards on them for a swap - where the host is binding the ATC's into a book!

  2. These are all so fun. The November one is my favorite.
