about ATCs
Just what is an ATC?  An ATC is an Artist Trading Card.  They are 2 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ little works of heART.  

Here are several that I have created for different swaps/exchanges.  You don’t need any specific reason to created an ATC, just go with the flow and see what you come up with.  
I like to have a stash of them on hand for when I need a quick card.  I just pull one out and adhere it to a card front and I am ready to go.  

Creating ATC’s is also a great way to try out a new product or medium.  

All you need are some basic supplies, here are my favorites:

Cardstock
Stamps
Ink
Tombow Dual Brush Pens or Irojiten Color Pencils (for coloring in all of the little details)
Tombow Foam Tabs (for popping elements up)
Tombow Xtreme Glue Tape (to keep everything nice and snug and where it should be)
Ribbon/Rhinestones/Other embellishments.

Have you ever made ATC’s?  Do you trade them? Swap them?

Leave me a comment and let me know as I would love to know what you do with these little works of heART.

Project Life: Going Home By Jennie Garcia

 Happy Thursday! Here I am again with another Project Life Spread! Flair buttons and enamel shapes are really trendy right now. I am trying to keep bulk pieces to a minimum so I am what I do is remove the foam adhesive that comes on the back and I use the new Tombow Xtreme Adhesive!

On the bottom of this page I used a small plastic bag and I glued a flair to the bag using the Xtreme Permanent Adhesive.

On this side I used a small envelope from Fancy Pants Designs to keep some of my journaling inside. For the Enamel Shapes from Pinkfresh Studio I used my Tombow Xtreme Adhesive and it worked great!

For some of my photos and embellishments I used the Mono Permanent Adhesive!

Here is a close up at the flair from Fancy Pants Designs and at the enamel shape.

The button on the bag under the heart is also from Fancy Pants and it had a foam piece of adhesive so I removed it and I used the Xtreme Permanent Adhesive.

To glue the die cuts I made on my Cameo I used the Mono Permanent Adhesive.

This typewriter flair is a little bit different since it has a hollow back I used a Tombow Power Tab. To type on the label sticker I cut around the circle and glued it to a piece of paper with the Tombow Mono Removable Adhesive.

I hope you enjoyed this post!

Elephant HoneyPOP by Debbie Fisher

Happy Tuesday to you all! We have been having some springy day weather and I thought it perfect to share this sunny card using Tombow products.

Elephant Honeypop

Irojiten Colored Pencils and Tombow’s Drawing Pencils are used to color the images. The image is by Inky Antics and has a fun surprise when you open the card.

Elephant Honeypop inside

Tombow’s Mono Glue Stick is perfect for adhering the honeypop paper. I used Mono Adhesive Dots for the little balloons.

Melissa’s Spring Bling Challenge – Bath Salt Sachets by Marie Browning

IMG_3437

Melissa’s Tombow challenge is “Spring Bling”, so I decided to use some beautiful Secret Garden cardstock from Graphic 45 and create some individual-use packages of fragrant bath salts! Mainly because my spring is still a little damp and cold and comfy, fragrant warm baths are still on my mind these days! Not only are these sachets a breeze to make, but very economical.

IMG_3439

Cut the May Flowers cardstock into 4” x 6” panels. You can make 6 sachets from one sheet of 12 x 12 cardstock! Cut out the Seed Fairy 1.25” x 2” labels.
Apply the Xtreme Adhesive to the long top and the two short sides of the large panel.

IMG_3440

Roll and adhere the paper panel into a long cylinder. The Xtreme is excellent for creating the sachets, it’s an instant strong bond that will not allow any salts from leaking out!

IMG_3441

Pinch the bottom closed and then fill the tube with 1/4 cup bath salts. Use a paper funnel so you don’t get any of the salts stuck to the adhesive.

IMG_3445

 Pinch the opposite side to close your package. Add the “Seed Fairy” label using the Xtreme.

IMG_3447

Use decorative scissors to trim the ends and a drop of Multi glue to attach a rhinestone for the bling!

IMG_3448

You can use bath salts from the store, or make your own! here’s how:

Bath Salts
1 cup Coarse Sea Salt
1 cup Epsom Salts
1 Tablespoon Liquid Glycerin
30 drops Fragrance oil
Measure and place the salts in a glass jar. Add the liquid glycerin, and fragrance oil to the jar. Place the lid on the jar and shake until all the salts are coated evenly with the glycerine and fragrance.
Here are some nice fragrance blends to match the project labels!
Daisy Fresh: 10 drops each lime, lemon and lavender
Effervescent Floral: 10 drops each Jasmine, Lavender and Violet
Luscious Lily: 10 drops each Lemongrass, Orange and Lavender
Rose Dream: 15 drops each rose and vanilla

IMG_3453

Bath Time!
Draw a warm bath and add one package of the fragrant salts to the running water. Hop in and relax, inhaling deeply to experience the soothing aromas and wait for spring!

SpringBling

Little Old Us By Jennie Garcia

Happy Thursday! In a desperate attempt to call Spring I made this Spring inspired layout with a few shiny embellishments!

I used the My Mind’s Eye Collection Now and Then: Dorothy and to glue the photo and papers I used the Mono Adhesive Permanent

 I glued the button with the twine using the NEW Tombow Xtreme Adhesive.

 The NEW Xtreme Permanent Adhesive also worked with sequins and since it’s clear I used it on clear sequins. To cut the title I used the  Silhouette Cameo with the font Xiomara. To glue it I used the fine tip of the Mono Aqua Liquid Glue.

 I made lots of splatters with glimmer mist.

 I made the tiny pink bow with May Arts Ribbon and the NEW Xtreme Permanent Adhesive. To put the bow on the layout I used Tombow Power Tabs.

 Under the photo I used tiny pompoms and I went crazy around my layout with my  sewing machine.

 From this angle you can see all the shiny stuff better.

Spring Bling Challenge……by Melissa Cash

Hi there! It is time for the March Challenge on the Tombow blog and it was my turn to choose the theme and I chose Spring Bling.
I have 3 cards that I created using the Penny Black, Chick to Chick set to create three cards to share today.
I used Tombow’s Irojiten Color Pencils and Gamsol to color each of the chicks and eggs on this one.  I added some Diamond Glitter Glue to each of the eggs for some bling.  I used Tombow Xtreme Glue Tape for the layers and Tombow Foam Tabs to pop up the image panel.
I used Tombow Dual Brush Pens to color the chick and flower and added some Diamond Stickles to the flower and bee for a little added bling.  Tombow Xtreme Glue Tape was used to hold all of the layers together and some Tombow Foam tabs to lift the image panel.
And last but not least, is this cute chick that I colored with Irojiten Pencils and Gamsol.  I added some Wink of Stella to the egg and snail for a little pop!  I used Tombow Xtreme Glue Tape and Tombow Foam Tabs to hold everything in place.
Now, we have TWO treats for you!

On My Mind by Debbie Fisher

It is soooo cold outside, but inside, I’m thinking spring! I am looking forward to getting a garden started whenever we get rid of this frigid cold weather.

Today’s post features a very springy card. I have lots of fun layers with the doily (adhered with Mono Adhesive Dots), paper flowers (adhered with Xtreme Adhesive) and button centers (adhered with Power Tabs).

on my mind

The designer paper and sentiment were adhered with Mono Adhesive Permanent.
