SEPT. 22- MAKING ATCCARDS
SEPT. 24- MAKINGFALL DP
This is my last blog hop with MFPStamps as I'm stepping down from their
design team after the September hop. It has been a fun ride! Now on with the
This month I will be showcasing ATC's which are Artist Trading
Cards.....miniature works of art. I have a written tutorial for you here today. MFPstamp sets used: Crows, Autumn Glory, ATC cards, Calendar. did a short video (go to you tube to give a thumbs up if you like my video. thanks!) how I created ATC. Enjoy the hop!
- Artist Trading Cards
of an ATC as miniature works of art. Just keep in mind that these
are trading cards and are for trading/swapping only.
need a piece of cardstock or thin cardboard, 2½ by 3½ inches in
size for the base of your ATC. It may be in either portrait or
landscape orientation, and the corners can be either rounded or
unrounded; it's purely a matter of personal preference. It's usual
to use cardstock, but other possibilities include fabric,
leather, acetate, metal and cork sheet. You could even use playing
cards for the base of your ATC, if they are the right size.
you use has to be fairly flat; although artist trading cards may
include three-dimensional elements like buttons and charms, they
should be thin enough to fit in a standard trading card sleeve. It
also needs to have a certain stiffness, so you might have to back
fabric or canvas, for example, with cardstock.
source for backgrounds is all the designer papers intended for
scrapbooking. These can be found in a wide variety of colors and
designs to suit every subject. Look out for interesting things like
pages from an old book, music and maps. You can cover the whole card
with one piece, or with several different pieces torn into strips or
any shapes. Many of those who make artist trading cards prefer to
create their own backgrounds using paint, color washes, chalks or
inks. Brush, sponge, stipple, spray your chosen medium onto the card,
and try blending different colors. My favorite way to create
backgrounds or focal points for an ATC is with my rubber stamps.
Rubber stamps are very versatile and can be used in many ways to
create interesting backgrounds.
½” x 11” cardstock -
3 ½”, 2 ½” and 2 ½” on the 8 ½” side
cardstock measure 3 ½” across
diagram for cutting. This will create 10 ATC's.
