Artist Trading Card / Pink Persimmon

I've been busy making ATC's again. Ready to trade??  Artist Trading Cards are fun to make and at 2.5" x 3.5", don't require a lot of resources or time.  If you are new to Artist Trading Cards, you can learn more about them and see a list of resources on one of my older post HERE

I used images from 2 Pink Persimmon stamp sets to create these little works of art. 
"Tea and Cake"  is so sweet, and girly, and vintage!  I LOVE it.  It comes with 2 different tea pots, tea cups, and a cake stand.  I used the tea cup images and stacked them on ATC #1.  My daughter had a tea party as a child for one of her birthdays, so I'm thinking this set would be just perfect for a future layout as well.

"Singing Birds"  comes with an arch / frame image and of course, some singing birds.  Oh the possibilities for adding things in the center  ...  big bird's nest,  a tree.  I thought there should be a little bird house dangling from the center so  I created my own for ATC #2.  What would you embellish or add to this image to finish it off ??


Project Details
Stamp Sets : Pink Persimmon "Tea and Cake" and "Singing Birds"
Copic Markers
Spray Ink : Tattered Angels Pink Taffy
Trim black cardstock 2.5" x 3.5" twice.  Trim lined pattern paper slightly smaller.

ATC #1 - Adhere lined paper to black card base.  Spritz doily with pink spray ink, adhere to front of card and trim along edges.  Tie green seam binding and tie bow.  Doodle around edges.  Stamp bottom tea cup on white cardstock.  Stamp tea cup on Eclipse Masking Tape and trim.  Lay tea cup mask over bottom tea cup and stamp tea cup #2 with the bottom of the cup over lapping the top of the bottom tea cup, giving the appearence that is is sitting down in the bottom tea cup.  Remove mask from bottom tea cup and cover tea cup #2.  Stamp tea cup #3 the same way, creating a stack of tea cups.  Remove tea cup mask and color.  Trim image and use raffia to build a little nest by adhering it to the back of the top cup.  Stamp a singing bird, color, and trim.  Adhere tea cup stack and singing bird to front of card.  Print this phrase or one of your own, trim, adhere and doodle around edges.

ATC #2 - Stamp part of the tree frame on the lined paper and color with markers.  Adhere to front of card.  Tie ribbon around bottom border and tie a bow.  Create you own bird house by cutting a square and triangle and adhere to front of card as if it is dangling from a hook in the center.  Doodle around the edges and embellish with rub-ons.  Stamp tea cup and singing bird on white cardstock and color with markers.  Adhere raffia to back of cup to create a nest, then adhere to front of card.  Print this phrase or one of your own, trim, adhere, and doodle around the edges.
