Fruity ATCs

9/20/22 Featured at Use Your Stuff Challenge Blog!

Hi everyone! A very Happy Hump Day to you! They sure do roll around rather quickly these days! This day is a special one every year because it’s my mom’s and baby brother’s birthday but they’ve both been gone for many years. Mom would be 102 and Mickey would be 58. He was born on her 44th birthday and we always teased her about that birthday present, lol! I’ve popped in this morning to share an awesome Tape Runner DT inspiration project that I created featuring an adorable fruit-themed Fun Stamper’s Journey stamp set which is another one I’ve had for a little while. The cardstock panels, stamped fruit and sentiments on these artist trading cards were adhered with Tape Runner.

As mentioned above, everything was adhered with Tape Runner except the sequins, and I used wet glue for those. I cut the ATC bases from 110# Solar White cardstock along with panels from Doodlebug Design Gingham-Linen, Swiss Dot, and Dot-Grid-Daisy-Stripe Rainbow Petite Prints, and rounded the corners of all. These prints are some of my all-time favorites because I love the colors! For a little interest, I created backgrounds of stamped fruit on each one which I heat embossed with clear embossing powder.

I stamped the fruit individually in black ink on Solar White cardstock, colored them with alcohol markers, and fussy cut them. I stamped the sentiments on Solar White cardstock as well, and cut or trimmed each one. I assembled each ATC and added two sequins to each which finished the set.

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
