Hello Friend

Hi Artsy Friends,

It’s time to play along with Happy Little Stampers (HLS) ATC (Artist Trading Card/Coin) Challenge again. The May Challenge Theme is Hello.

For Challenge Rules and other DTs’ inspirations, please check out the Challenge Blog. ATC is easy to manage in terms of size (3.5 inch x 2.5 inch) and “Hello” is such an easy theme. So please do join us for the fun.

The following is how I made these ATCs.

ATC Details

1. Spray DIY Pearlized Distress Mist (Mustard Seeds) randomly on watercolor paper.
2. Spray DIY Pearlized Distress Mist (Fired Brick) over flower stencil on watercolor paper.
3. When dry, cut watercolor paper to ATC size. Stamp text background (Hero Arts).
4. Heat emboss texts (Simon Says Stamps) in black.
5. Die cut butterflies (Memory Box) and apply Distress Oxide Inks (Worn Lipsticks).
6. Adhere butterflies to ATC panel.


Hello and Hugs

Hi Stamping Friends,
Inspired by Altenew’s April Inspiration Challenge (color scheme and non-floral theme), I quickly made this postcard which will be for a stamping friend.

It is not my usual style but it’s kind of fun and playful to try the cute style. Hope you like it too. Thanks for stopping by and wish you a great day ahead.

Card Details
1. All stamps are by Altenew.
2. Embossing Powder is by Wow.
