ATC's - Fall edition


I have a little something different to share today; it's an ATC, well technically 2 of them. I bought a pack of Ranger ATC's at Hobby Lobby and had a chance to work on a few over the holiday weekend. For the holiday weekend we went to our cottage with my Mother & Brother-in-law along with my husbands 93 year old grandmother. It was fun however I lacked good packing skills and so my holiday weekend went something like this-I brought my rubber stamps but didn't bring the scissors to cut them to use; I brought Versa Mark ink and embossing powder but no heat gun; I brought stamps, ink, stickers, rub ons, paper, you name it for this frame that I was asked to put together but I forgot the frame at home; I had these invitations to work on that I brought my paper to use, trimmer, notes I had made but I forgot the template to the invitations at home; and one more I brought my Cuttlebug, plates die cuts and all to die cut my scraps of paper but I left the scraps of paper box at home as well. Therefore, these obstacles gave me playtime to just do whatever with what I had and so I came up with these ATC's to share.

This first one I made by background stamping the base with Stampin Up ink and a Deep Red Stamp that you can find HERE. Deep Red Stamps is a newer company that has many different images to shoose from. They are good quality stamps made here in the USA and you can find them at Oozaks and A Cherry on Top has some too. These two sites are here in Michigan, so to all the Michiganders please support the shops in our beautiful state.

Then I dry embossed it to give it more of the woodgrain affect using an embossing folder by Darice. After that I inked the edges with Ranger distress inks. I played with a few different colors until I got this look. The pie and utensils die cuts are by K and Co. The orange patterned paper is by Recollections however I inked it a ton and therefore it wasn't the same color as when I started. The purple paper is a scrap from IDK where and then the Thanksgiving sticker is by Flair Designs.


For my next ATC I used a background paper that I made with paint blobs all over kraft cardstock. I had forgotten I tried that a few years ago and didn't like it then.So when I pulled it out over the weekend I decided to do a little bit more to jazzy it up. I took my Ranger distress inks and inked it with multiple colors of inks and then I sprayed it with water mixed with gold Perfect Pearls. This peanut has so much sparkle that my husband ran away in fear. (He hates glitter and anything glittery-whatever!) I think the paint is by Plaid and the cardstock by Oriental Trading Co.

The die cuts are from the same pack as the ATC above K and Co. I placed the nut die cut on a Spellbinders Label #5 die that I had inked like the rest of the card. The patterned paper is by Scribble Scrabble-very old from my stash-and the metal sentiment is by Scrapbook Pro-local dollar store find.


Thanks for stopping by and taking a look.

  2. Such fun ATCs for the season, Cindy! Thanks so much for sharing them with us at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge!
    (And I did the exact same thing a few months ago.....took my stamps, ink, paper, but forgot my acrylic blocks to stick my stamps on! I managed, though, too.)

  28. I liked both of your cards. The first made me smile because I'm all about digging in at our Thanksgiving feast and the second I liked because of the sentiment. It's so original.
