Words ATC

The theme for the 9ATC Group this month is Words. I rubbed the blue Distress Oxide over the card stock and heat set. Next stamped the words BE and YOU with violet Distress Oxide and heat set.

I used Silver Encore ink to stamp a crinkly background image over the words and background.

Finished the ATC by stamping assorted words with black StaZon ink.

Bright and Colorful ATC Coins

The theme for 9ATC Group is Bright and Colorful ATC Coins

I do not have a 2-1/2" circle punch or die cut, but I do have a round scallop 2-1/2" die, so I used that to cut out the red scallop background. Then I used a 2-1/4" circle die for the next layer. Inked the background with squeezed lemonade Oxide Distress Ink and let it dry. Used pink, orange and purple ColorBox Chalk ink over a stencil for the dotted background.

Used a die to cut out the butterflies and inked them with peacock feathers Distress ink and heat dried it. Inked one side of the matching butterfly embossing folder with red Archival ink to emboss the red ink into the butterfly. Used black StazOn ink to stamp a written image onto the butterfly.


Cut the word "dream" out of an old book, to place above the butterfly onto the ATC Coin and a blue diamond shaped rhinestone above the word.

Envelope ATC

The theme this month for the 9ATC Groups is to incorporate an envelope(s) in the ATC.

I inked the background with squeezed lemonade Distress Oxide ink and let it dry. Then used pink, purple and blue Paintbox ink over punchinello ribbon and let it dry.

finished background

For embellishments I used thin vellum for the envelope and a previous made red textured paper. I created an envelope template that would fit onto the atc.  Cut the envelopes out of thin vellum. Stamped the script with black StazOn ink, and the postage cancellation stamp with sepia Archival Ink. I cut out the large heart  that goes inside the envelope free hand and used a small heart punch for the small hearts "spilling" out of the envelope.

Red Black & Gold ATC

 The theme for the 9 ATC Group is Red, Black & Gold (using only those colors). I ran black card stock through a Tree Trunk embossing folder for the back ground. Used a bird die cut to cut out the bird from red card stock, stamped musical notes with gold metallic ink and added a gold sequence for the eye. Punched out the large musical notes in gold card stock with a large punch.
