I joined a couple more Artist Trading Card (ATC) swaps at Rubber Stamp Chat last month. Here are the ones that I made for the Alice in Wonderland, Wizard of Oz and Horse themed swaps. The Alice stamps are from Lost Coast Designs, the witch and horse stamps are from Starving Artistamps.

It’s that time of year again when graduation ceremonies are cropping up everywhere, summer is coming and the end of the school year is in sight.

I love this school house digital stamp from The Stamping Boutique! You can do so much with it! I’ve used it here for my graduation card.

I used lots of circles since that’s the next challenge at TSB. Circles on patterned paper, cut out of paper, embellishments or even the shape of the card – USE CIRCLES and lots of them!

Time for an ATC (artist trading card) update. My ATC club is meeting this weekend, so I needed to prepare my ATCs for this month. The theme is “hearts” – so many different possibilities!!

I decided on a super cute Unity stamp, heat embossing, an awesome new heart corner punch, baker’s twine and WOOD! YES, the tree trunk is real WOOD! Isn’t that cool??

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