This and That

Hi everyone! It's me Tonya and I'm back this month to share what I created using the Regency Collections that is 20% off this month over at the Robin's Nest and  Heartfelt Creations which we are crossing promoting.
I kinda went crazy this month with projects. Instead of just one I have the box I altered into a ATC holder, eight ATC cards and one card using all these wonderful products.
If you are ready lets get started. :-)


For the ATC holder first I found a box that was 3 1/2"x5". Find the center of the box on the 3 1/2" side, mark and drew a line down to the other 3 1/2" side. Cut and then folded down on either side to make holder more sturdy.  




 


Make small holes for the "feet" that will hold up the box. Next gesso the sides and bottom of box. 


Once the gesso is dry paint the sides and bottom of the box with black acrylic paint. Let dry. Cut five pieces of cardstock to cover the sides from the Gold Glitter Paisley Cardstock. I cut these a little bit smaller so a little of the black paint would show on the box. Also measure the inside bottom of the box and cut from the black glitter chipboard a piece to fit inside. I embossed it with the Flourish embossing folder and used Sahara Sand Chalk Ink to ink the edges of all the cardstock to give it an "aged" look. Adhere the  Gold Glitter Paisley Cardstock to the sides and bottom of the holder. Next attach the "feet" to each corner of the holder with the brads that are included. Now adhere the black glitter chipboard to the inside of the holder. 


 I used Gold Glitter Chipboard to cut out the book plate that is on the front of my ATC holder. This diecut is from the Heartfelt Creations Burnished Key Custom Design Die Template. I printed the "This & That" sentiment from the computer and inked it to give it a vintage feel. I added an old ear ring that I had received in a swap several years. At the time I didn't know what I would even use it for??? Now it is the perfect addition to the bookplate and to top it off I added a purple Dew Drop



Don't you think the holder has an elegant and vintage feel???


The next project I created was some ATCs for my little holder. If you don't know what an ATC is here is the definition I pulled from the Internet.

artist trading card
Web definition
  1. Artist trading cards are miniature works of art about the same size as modern trading cards baseball cards, or 2 1⁄2 by 3 1⁄2 inches, small enough to fit inside standard card-collector pockets, sleeves or sheets.

I'm a firm believer in using up scraps of cardstock and scrapbook paper that I have laying around. Yes, I have hoarder tendencies…lol
I started with base of the ATC using the Vanilla Fluer Glitter CardstockIt is double sided  The children are from a digital sheet I got from Cassi's Creations. I fussie cut, chalked and added scraps of cardstock, dew drops, button, stickers and sentiments…printed from the computer and stamped. Also I found this mini playing card that I thought was perfect for the little "king of hearts".



The base of these two ATCs are cut from Gold Classic Swirl Glitter Cardstock. I inked both bases with chalk ink which turned nice. The butterflies I cut from scraps of Robin's Nest cardstock using the Bigz Beautiful Butterflies die. Adhered to the card along with a zipper pull, sequin, gold dew drops and dress pins for antennas.
The other ATC I cut from scraps a heart from the Hearts and Brackets die which I embossed with Gear Box embossing folder and added sprockets gears, game spinner also. I used the Burnished Key Custom Design Die Template to cut out a lock and key from the gold glitter Chipboard. Inked and then attached it with a ring fastener.


For the base of the lion ATC I used Calmity Jane Rose Glitter Cardstock, fussie cut the lion from the Red Lion Cardstock, used scraps and a sticker from the Regency Sticker Set.
The friend is ATC base is cut from Gold Classic Swirl Glitter Cardstock and inked in chalk ink. The sentiment is from the Clearly the Right Words stamp set and to top everything off I used a dolie and bird chipboard pieces, scraps of scrapbook paper, button and twine.


Both of these bases are cut from Gold Glitter Paisley Cardstock and the Cathedral Speciality Paper was used as an accent. Scraps were used on both along with a dress form and butterfly chipboard pieces, dew drops, flower punches, sentiments printed from the computer. The "grumpy fairy" is an image I cut from a Crafty Secrets sheet. The only problem was I had clipped off of the back side of the sheet another image and my fairy was missing an arm so I created the sign to cover up the fact she is a one armed fairy.


I hope you liked the ATCs I created for my holder. The plan is to use up scraps on ATCs and fill this little holder up. :-)


Also I had to come up with a card for my secret sister and since I had leftovers I decided to create a card. So I'm going to share. :-)
I cut a 5"x6 1/2" (approximate) card base from Gold Glitter Paisley CardstockI cut from the Vanilla Fluer Glitter Cardstock a piece a little bit smaller than the card base and stamped with the Summer Seasons Pre-cut Set from Heartfelt Creations in Timber Brown StazOn Ink.


Next I cut a piece of Cathedral Speciality Paper  and adhered to the stamped piece. I embossed one end with the Fleur De Lis embossing folder and then inked all the edges. 


I used some of the stickers from the Regency Sticker Set. 


I started with the black Fleur De Lis tag sticker and used Robin's Nest scraps to make two banners to add to the tag.


The little girl digital image is from Cassi's CreationsI wanted to add a little bit more color to her so I dragged out my chalk pastels (I've had these since elementary school…lol) and used a swab to add color to hair, cheeks and dress.


I also added a tab sticker which I stamped with Hello and I cut a Fleur De Les from the back side of the Gold Glitter Paisley Cardstock using the Fleur De Lis and Eiffel Tower diecut and added to the corner of the card. I topped it off with a Black Diamond Dew Drop.
