Venice ATCs

 The theme is Venice on 9ATC Group. I decided to create an ATC inspired by the Venetian Carnevale.
Used the edge of a stormy sky Distress ink pad to create vertical stripes over the card stock, then with the same ink pad used dtp method to cover the card stock.
Next stamped a graphic image and wavy lines with varnished wood Distress ink.
Then inked the same graphic image with black soot Distress ink and stamped over the first image, just a fraction off.  Also stamped a masked face image on the card stock.

Used black soot Distress ink to stamp letters to spell our CARNEVALE on the upper portion. Found a vintage image of a masked harlequin, cut out and adhered to the atc.

Scrap Paper Strip Cards

My turn to do a card demo at stamp club. I decided to show a variety of cards using leftover strips of pretty background papers.

The first two cards, I adhered strips of left over background paper over a piece of 3-3/4" x 5" paper. These strips were 3/4"-1/2"-1/4". Layered this onto a white card. One the first one, Stamped Happy Birthday on a piece of white card stock and then layered onto the red left over paper.
 On the second card, I cut out a star, candle, and words from a die cut and layered onto the scrap background, then onto black, then white card stock.
 For the third card, stamped Happy Birthday diagonally onto a piece of white card stock, then added strips of coordinating left over background papers, leaving some room between the strips. Layered this onto black, then orange card stock.
 For the forth card, layered 3 strips of leftover background paper across a piece of white paper. Punched out some matching paper flowers and added a small black paper flower with a rhinestone center. Stamped a saying in black under the stripe. Then layered onto black then white card stock.
 For the fifth card, embossed a tan piece of card stock with a small dot pattern on the top 2/3 of the card stock. Stamped Happy Birthday on the bottom and added some leftover background papers. This was then layered onto black, then tan card stock.
 For the last card, embossed white card stock with a flourish embossing folder, then added five strips of coordinating leftover background paper on the diagonal . Stamped a cupcake and a small happy birthday on the papers. Layered this onto a purple card.

Washi Tape Birthday Card

For stamp club, we were to make a card using washi tape. I placed 3 pieces of washi tape on the left side of a piece of confetti card stock. Had drew flames and colored them in. Stamped Celebrate in the lower right corner. Layered onto black and then white card stock.

Colorful ATC

 The theme for 9ATC Group is Colorful.
Sponged yellow, orange and pink Distress Inks over glossy card stock. Then sponged orange, pink and purple Distress Inks over a dot stencil onto the inked background.
 Stamped on a pink flower stem and leaves. Stamped musical sheet and butterfly with blue Distress Ink onto the lower left side of the ATC. Colored a music sheet with blue ink spray and cut out large floral shape. Used white ink pen to add dots to the outer edge of the flower and leaves.

Added a yellow circle to the center of the flower. Used blue tape in a dyno maker to spell out sing.
"Flowers Sing Joy into Our Lives"
