Another First For Me.....ATC cards.....

SOS Headquarters

Hello everyone: Until very recently, I've never heard of ATC cards so, I asked my teammates at SHOPPING OUR STASH about them and also, Google'd and searched on Pinterest and found a whole bunch of ideas on how to go about it so, here are my very first ATC cards, hope you like them.

I'm sure most of you have heard of these cards, you can really decorate them in any which way you want, you can put any image, colors, etc., the only rule is that they must be 2.5"x3.5", the rest is up to you.
I can see these cards on a card, with some pattern paper and other embellishments.
I used several stamp sets to create these cards. The first and second card have images from Power Poppy, the image on the third one I think is from Impression Obsession, the fourth one with the snowman is from Inkakinkado and the fifth one's image is from SU "Zoo Review" (retired).
I just cut my panels out of watercolor paper, sponged them with Distress Inks, stamped my images and added some other colors with Prismacolor pencils.

So there you have them, hope you get inspired to come along to the SHOPPING OUR STASH blog, check out my teammates' creations and join us in the gallery.

Thank you for stopping by, your comments always make my day.


  1. These are cuties ! I love trading Artist Trading Cards ! They are so much fun ! I have a big album full of these fun little cards that I have received in the past . I will get a set ready w/ directions and send it to you so we can play !
    You did good on your first ones !!

  2. These are adorable, love your first attempt, the colours and subjects are great. I love making them but it's the first time I've done an atc coin. I have been in a lot of swaps and have a large album of them, the cards fit in sports card holders. It's so much fun to have a swap and see how different people interpret a theme.

  3. WOW you did a fab job with your very first ATCs!!!
    They are super fun to make aren't they?
    I am addicted to making them and now I love making the coins too!!

  4. Maria these are gorgeous! I am so impressed with the individuality of each card. You did a great job of embracing this challenge. Excellent work, teammie!

  5. Excellent job on your very first ATC's! These are so bright and fun!

  6. Fabulous job on your first ATCs, Maria! Awesome backgrounds and great stamps. The great thing is you can turn them into cards, which is what many of my ATC making friends do. You've got five of them here all ready to go!

  7. Well done, Maria! Good plan to use these in the future on cards! Love the bright colors you chose!
