STAMPlorations Inspiration #271

Hey, chickie!  It's Inspiration Tuesday on the STAMPlorations blog, and I'm in ATC mode.  I'm doing an ATC swap with teamie Sanna, so that got me back in the mode of making ATCs.

The great thing about making ATCs is that you can use up all sorts of scraps, and try different techniques on a small canvas, so it's not too scary.  And the bonus is that you've got the option of mounting the ATC onto a card if you choose.

For the moment, this one is still an ATC.  Next week's card started life as an ATC then upgraded to a card.

On cartridge paper I painted Distress Oxides then stencilled over using Rag Rug and Make Marks 2 stencils.  Then I stamped two checks from Fowl Play and paper-pieced from two in my stash.

Pop on over to the STAMPlorations blog for some more fabulous inspiration from the team, and don't forget to leave a comment for your chance to win a $10 gift certificate to the store.


  1. I love this card, ahhh... paperpieced... I love your choice of paper so much. You've got me scurrying through my stash looking for like paper pattern to duplicate this! Thanks for the inspiration, these birds are great!💟

  2. Love this adorable
    card, so cute!
