I love making cards!

It’s Virtual Stamp Night this weekend on Splitcoast Stampers, so I thought that I would indulge myself in some stamping just for the fun of it.

So, VSN has various challenges under this month’s theme of You Make My Heart Sing. The hostesses are extremely creative with their challenges all relating back to the main theme. Great job ladies!

Here is another card with many more to come:

Yes, I’m addicted to ATCs – Artist Trading Cards. They are 2 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ and can have any design on them. I trade every other month with a local club and it’s a great time to get together, chat, eat lunch and trade! That’s one of the super FUN things about ATCs, you always trade and never sell them!

I came across these little mini mailboxes at Target in the DOLLAR SPOT, yes only $1! I usually see them around Valentine’s Day, so I grab at least 10 to stash my ATCs in throughout the year. I must decorate each one, OF COURSE! That’s half the fun! The colors that I’ve seen are white, red, pink, metallic pink, silver and a mauve-ish color. It’s all good because it’s super easy to change the look by adding patterned paper, paint or glitter.

Search for “mini mailbox” in the box to the right or click this link to see some other designs in my mini mailbox collection.

Today’s project is using some digital and rubber stamps from Michelle Perkett Studio. There’s a new challenge on Michelle’s blog that you should check out and enter to win free digital stamps!

—->> check it out on the Challenge Blog, due Monday, January 31st.

To make this mini mailbox project, I made background paper using the LOVE word and printing on patterned paper. I then rubber stamped the Ballerina Fairy, colored her with Copic markers and cut her out. I adhered the background paper around the middle of the mailbox and punched 2 borders that I wrapped over each side of the LOVE paper. I added the fairy and a bunch of bling-y hearts and flowers! As a finishing touch, I used my Dymo labeler to make the “my ATCs” tag near the fairy’s leg. Cute isn’t she?
