Three ATC's (Design Team Project)

by Erika Taylor

We didn't get to share all of the wonderful work created for us last year by our now former design team member, Erika Taylor. She made these wonderful ATC's last summer, and we wanted to share them with you now, because we think they are timeless! Here is what Erika had to say about her work...

I love trying different paper crafts and one that I often go back to is making ATC’s. Those little gems are the perfect way to focus on one aspect; whether it is stamping, coloring or collage, ATC’s are a great way to hone your skills.

To make these I used Pink Paislee 365 degrees papers and stamps from FranticStamper's own rubber stamp line (plate #85.) The images were stamped with Momento tuxedo black and rich cocoa inks from Tsukineko and colored with Copic markers. Here are the step-by-step instructions for how I made the three trading cards.

  • Cut 3 cream cardstock pieces at 2 ½” x 3 ½”. Cut denim cardstock at 2 3/8” x 3 3/8”. Set aside.
  • Cut Pink Paislee patterned papers at 2 ¼” x 3 ¼”. Stamp script image using Memento ink onto patterned paper. Adhere to 2 3/8” x 3 3/8” Denim cardstock.
  • Stamp images on cream cardstock with Memento black ink. Color and shade with Copic Markers.
  • Cut images out using serrated scissors.
  • Adhere to ATC front using foam circles.
  • Add decorative brad to corners.
  • Adhere entire ATC front to 2 ½” x 3 ½” base.

Thanks so much for stopping by today and sharing some stamping on ATC’s with Frantic Stamper Stamps.
