June/19 - ATCAD2019 - ATC Crackle Paste Live Love Laugh - Day 9, 10 & 11

Well here are the ATC's for day 9, 10 & 11. I'm just zipping along... BIG GRIN
 
These are more ATC's created from my raided stash of decorated papers that have been languishing in the drawer for probably 8 years... Every once in a while I check it, but it stays the same... What better use of them than for ATC's. Finally there are a few less in the drawer.

I'm using a bunch of dies "Live", "Love", "Laugh" from Elizabeth Craft Designs, also available on Quietfire Design  HERE, HERE, and HERE


I believe the crackle background was made using Golden's Crackle medium and Dream Weaver paste, then colored with a water coloring medium. I loved the effect, but it's really thick and not conducive to making greeting cards... so it languished in the drawer. It's really bright and cheerful.

I trimmed them down a bit narrower than an ATC and adhered them to a white cardstock base edge with a red Zig marker.

I die cut the words "Live", "Love", and "Laugh" from a dark blue metallic cardstock.

June19 - ATCAD2019 - Triptych Make a wish


I raided my stash of decorated papers that have been languishing in the drawer for probably 8 years... Every once in a while I check it, but it stays the same... What better use of them than for ATC's. Finally there are a few less in the drawer.

I'm using a bunch of dies "Make A Wish", from Elizabeth Craft Designs, also available on Quietfire Design  "HERE"

I'm also using a clear stamp set "Happy Birthday Collection" from Quietfire Design also available on Elizabeth Craft Designs HERE
This 3 page ATC folds up into a regular sized ATC, but I needed something big for my "Make A Wish" die cut. BIG GRIN.

The background paper was done on watercolor paper, colored with some form of water coloring and then Saran Wrap scrunched up on dampness and left to dry. The result is hard cut edges that look like glass chips.

I had a leftover piece of the geometric scrapbook paper so added it to the front. Stamped the "Celebrate" and balloons using Versafine Clair "Twilight" and clear embossed. Colored the balloons with Prisma colored pencils.

On the inside Die cut the "Make a Wish" from black cardstock and cut a shadow layer from white. Adhered both together then to inside.

I had some alcohol star drop out pieces from another die cut. so added some of them.

June/19 - ATCAD2019 - Stencil Circles Day 5, 6 & 7

There's a challenge to create an ATC every day in June (use the tag #ATCAD2019 on all social media)...  These are days 5, 6 & 7
I'm using a few dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs "Let It", "Be" 4pce set, "Be" 4pce set, "Happy" 2pce set, and Soar also available on Quietfire Design "Let It", "Be", "Be", "Happy" and "Soar"

I had created the stencil background a few days ago and it was laying on my table so figured I'd use it since I couldn't figure out what I wanted to do with it for a card...

On black cardstock using Phil Martin - Sentimentally Yours "Scattered Circles stencil and Distress Oxides. They're not as opaque as I would have liked... I used "Broken China", "Mustard Seed" and "Twisted Citron". then clear embossed. Created the highlight using a Prisma colored white pencil.

Each word die cut from a metallic cardstock "Let It Be" from gold; "Soar" from a beautiful aqua blue; and "Be Happy" from a lime green" 


Enjoy
