ATC card, Vol. 4 – Canvas Corp Brands

Hello lovelies! This is my last ATC for the Canvas Corp Brands Creative Crew ATC swap. This one is a 1 of 1 set :-). I created it on white cardstock base.

Sanna LippertThen I added a smaller piece of white cardstock on top, but decorated it first. There is first of all some 7gypsies stamping (this stamp) with VersaMark and Ranger Silver embossing powder on the background. Then I´ve misted the piece with pink and green Glimmer Mist. Next I stamped some Finnabair butterflies onto the background with a black ink. Then I added some silver Creative Medium thru a stencil onto the background (yes, again a The Crafter´s Workshop stencil I used). After that I used a stapler to attach a piece of twine. Next to that there is some corrugated kraft cardstock which I inked a bit.

Sanna LippertAfter that I added black and white ink splatters, a stamped and colored sentiment and butterfly as well as a wood veneer arrow,finished of with a layer of Stickles. Sanna LippertI hope the recipient liked her ATC. It is a special one as there is only one single piece of this one ever made :). So now I am thru with the ones I created. Here are the ones I received (so far):

Sanna LippertThe upper one from left top corner until right lower corner: Nancy Wethington, Zinia Amoiridou, Nancy Hawes, Marie Heiderscheit & Susan Salyer.

Sanna LippertThe second set from top left corner until the low right corner: Nadine Carlier, Barb Housner, Jorunn Langås Andreassen, Tamara Dinius, Tracy Sagriff. I adore every single one!!! <3

Sanna LIppertAnd this is how I store my ATC´s at the moment. The pockets are the prefect size for ATCs. There is still space for the two missing ones, and two more. I´ve also added a few other ones there I received along the past years. There are from my scrappy friends Riikka Kovasin, Tina Walker and Kim from Australia. Sanna Lippert  I like the fact that I could add this ATC sheet into a photo album or PL album. BUT then on the other hand I am thinking of getting two shadow frames for these and hanging them all on my studio wall. Have not quite figured out which way I will go. I have quite a few pieces of lovely art from my crafty friends, so these would make a really nice addition to those. I will keep you posted when I decide!!!

*edit* here is a photo of the last two ATC cards I received from Peggy Lee Baker (top left) & Sheila Rumney (top right)!

Sanna Lippert*edit* …and I also received this lovely ATC from Canvas Corp Brands office! Love it!!!

ps. thank you to every single one who sent me their lovely work! I really, truly cherish each and every one of them <3

ATC set Vol. 3 – Canvas Corp Brands

Hello lovelies! In my two previous posts I´ve shared my first and second set of 4 ATC cards. These were all part of the Canvas Corp Brands Creative Crew ATC swap. I didn´t want to create 12 similar ATC´s, so I made sets of 4. Now afterwords, when I think of it, I should have made sets of 5, that way there would have been one of each for me, but too late now :-). This is my starting point for the third set:

Sanna LippertI again used the ATC kraft card bases for these four ATC cards. Then I chose a totally gorgeous piece of paper from the 7gypsies Ordre Du Jour collection (love that paper pack!!!) to go with the kraft bases. Isn´t this particular paper just amazing??!!! Love it!

I first started by adhering the in size cut patterned paper pieces onto the kraft base. Then i applied some Imagine Crafts pearlescent Creative Medium onto the patterned paper thru a The Crafter´s Workshop stencil.

Sanna LippertNext some random Glimmer Mist splatters – tone: Rosey. I also fussy cut some sentiments from the paper and added them on top of the paper. Then I created clusters with sewing yarn, misted & punched little stars and some transparent resin buttons (those I made a while back as an experiment with my Mold Muse molds). Finalyl some outlining with a black pen and white ink splatter details here and there.

Sanna LippertThis is how the finished 4 ATC´s look like:

Sanna Lippertand some detail photos:

Sanna Lippert Sanna Lippert Sanna LippertHere are all 3 sets I sent on their way to my swap partners. I really do hope they liked their ATC´s! I have enjoyed receiving REAL MAIL from all around the world!! This has been such a fun thing to do. I sure hope there will be a possibility to do another swap of some kind soon. Sanna LippertThere is still one more ATC I need to share, so if you are still interested, come back soon to take a look at that one :). Oh, and in that post I might also share the ones I received, so far there are 10 out of 12 that arrived, so I still need to wait for the last ones to arrive, before sharing them (and how I store them) with you.

Happy crafting,

ATC set Vol. 2 – Canvas Corp Brands

Hello lovelies! On my previous post I told you about the Canvas Corp Brands Creative Crew ATC swap and that I had created several sets of ATC´s for that. Here comes the second set:

Sanna LippertMy starting point waas the 7gypsies kraft ACT card base package and some papers from the 7gypsies Ordre Du Jour collection. I chose a paper and cut it slightly smaller than the ATC bases were.

Sanna LippertI started by stamping onto the patterned paper with a  Susan K Weckesser stamp (from the Grandma´s Needlepoint stamp set) stamp and black waterproof ink.

Sanna LippertNext I went and mixed some Cardboard Chalkboard spray ink and transparent texture paste together. I then added some toned paste thru a The Crafter´s Workshop stencil onto the patterned paper pieces.

Sanna LippertBefore the paste was dry, I quickly applied some Multi Chrystal Glitter Mix onto the paste and let that layer dry. It adds a really nice vintagy shine to the surface and that goes really well with the colors and the papers. Sanna LippertAfter that I grabbed some more 7gypsies numbers, added some yellow sewign garn under them and glued some spray inked, punched stars and some random buttons as decoration on top.

Sanna LippertNaturally there also had to be some black Glimmer Glaze in there. It would not be me, if I didn´t add some black splatters :-). When the ATC´s were done, I adhered them onto the kraft ATC bases with a strong paper glue (Aleene´s). This is what they look like finished:  Sanna Lippertand here are some detail shots:Sanna LippertI added some doodled circles here and there in the end, for additional interest and outlined the stars with a black pen. I also wanted to add a motivational sentiment, so I did some hand written ones in matching tones. Sanna LippertThis was my second set of 4 ATC´s. I really enjoyed creating these and I hope the recipients also liked them.

There are still a few more to come, so I hope you come back soon to take a look at what´s coming next :-)!

Happy crafting,
xxx, Sanna

ATC set Vol. 1 – Canvas Corp Brands

Hello lovelies!! We have an ATC swap going on with some of my DT colleagues from the Canvas Corp Brands Creative Crew and it has been such fun taking part in it!!! My task was to make 12 ATC´s and post them to chosen CCB Crew colleagues around the globe. Since most of them have now arrived at the recipients, it is time to start sharing some step-by-steps. Here is the first set of 4 ATC´s I did:

Sanna LippertThese ones have lots of color going on in them – as I happen to adore stamping, stenciling and misting. I first cut white cardstock into the ATC size (3.5 x 2.5 inches) and then cut four more pieces of white cardstock slightly smaller.

Sanna Lippert Sanna LippertThe smaller pieces then got a layer of spray ink. For the upper ones I used: light purple Glimmer Mist, light blue Chalkboard and lime green Glimmer Mist spray from Tattered Angels. The lower ones are misted with Glimmer Mist tones Patina, Rosey and Fully Purple. Then I just let them dry properly.

Sanna LippertNext I added a doodled outline around the inked pieces.

Sanna LippertFollowed by some black stamped images, created with a hand carved triangle stamp and a waterproof black ink.

Sanna LippertFinally I added some Clear Double Sided Adhesive strips onto the background, then poured some Fire Opal Silk Microfine Glitter over the adhesive and polished the glitter with my finger. It has an amazing shine and is super fine!! Nothing comes off the adhesive, once polished!!!

Sanna Lippert Sanna Lippert Sanna LippertThen i went along and added some yarn, some 7gypsies numbers, some dymo words and spray inked little stars her and there. I used a stapler to attach the dymo words onto the background and matted the inked pieces onto the bigger white cardstock ones. Some burlap also stacked under the numbers for more detail. Finally I just added some white and black ink splatters for additional detail and my first 4 ATC´s were finished.

I had so much fun creating these!!! Now there will be more sets to come, so make sure you come back in a few days time :).

Happy crafting,
xxx, Sanna
