Masculine ATC Card

Happy Weekend Bloggers!

Here's my ATC (Artist Trading Card) for the Steampunk topic.  Most of the supplies used are by Tim Holtz.  I decided to use grays and blacks on this particular ATC.  Oh, and a silver gear, pen nib and metal embellishment.  I just spoke with someone the other day who'd never heard of Steampunk.  I thought everyone had heard of it.  I think it's still pretty popular, as I still see lots of it around.   :o)





Thanks for stopping by to visit.  Until next time.....

An Anniversary Tuxedo Card

Happy Weekend Friends!

Today's post is a card I made for hubby for an anniversary.  I used black linen card stock for the jacket, and white card stock for the shirt.  I don't make many cards with just 2 colors of paper.  Red ribbon for the cummerbund, and a tiny red rose in the lapel.  Black ribbon tied for the bow tie.  Lastly, added a black button on the jacket.







Here's a pic of the inside of the card....I covered up my message with a piece of white paper and held it in place with a red heart sticker.  I didn't think you'd want to read the gooey note!  lol


Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!  Until next time.....

June ATC for Stamp Club -- Topic: Fabric

Happy Weekend!

Today's post is one that was a little bit of challenge.  Our stamp club members suggest topics for the year, throw them into a hat (so to speak), and Ms. Marcie picks 12 topics.  The topic for the June ATC (artist trading card - for those of you who aren't familiar with the term ATC), was "fabric."  Yeowza!   ATC's are little pieces of art measuring 2.5" x 3.5"   

Fabric definitely put my old brain to the test.  But, as luck would have it....and I was indeed lucky, I found a box that happened to have fabric in it with all kinds of bottles of hot sauce printed on the fabric.  There were several patterns, this just happens to be the one hubby took a picture of, so I'm posting it.  Don't you just love that gold tooth?  lol

I stamped the background with the stamp that says "Got Chile?", then distressed the edges.  Cut out the individual bottle of hot sauce and glued it down.  This bottle was too big for the ATC card, so needed …

HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY!

Happy Independence Day Friends!


Today I'm sharing a card that was taught by Susan Knapp.  

I didn't finish my card until later, and when I put it together I added the stars, and backed the Statue of Liberty with black card stock.  Then I decided to add another patterned paper for the background.  I'll tell you what I used.  I found this grey patterned paper in one of my paper stashes.  It's the inside of an envelope from Lovelace Healthcare.  Works for me.  ;o)   I wanted something grey, and there it was.  Added the "celebrate" die cut and all done.



Wishing you and yours a safe and fun 4th of July! Hugs, Geri
