My First Artist Trading Card

Pin It

Recently, I was feeling in a bit of a stamping funk and decided to explore splitcoast and anything else I could find on the internet for inspiration. I took my search to Barnes and Noble, and came upon this book 'Rubber Stamping Artist Trading Cards' by Jill Haglund. I started flipping through it and instantly my head was full of ideas!

ATCs are an awesome way to play with different techniques, unused stamps, colors, etc. The possibilities are endless!

My stamp collection is definitely a work in progress so I wanted to swap with something I already had. I found the Bella swap on scs and thought Vinobella would be a perfect first swap.

The requirements are 2 layers plus cardstock, and anything else I want to add. I used wine type colors for Vinobella and added sparkle with stickles and a spica glitter pen. I like how the background looks like wine rings on a table.

I'm looking forward to receiving my bella atcs! hmmm...what should I make next!?

update: I changed the ribbon on the card for a different look. I love how these bellas came out!
