ATC Swap

I don't usually do this, but came across a swap that fit my style to a "t". Vintage Valentine.  So I sat down to use up some items and tools I have had for some time to create something that would make me happy to put my name on.
For those of you who do not know what a ATC is, it is a Artist Trading Card. It is 2 1/2 x 3" and used like base ball trading cards. But with ATC you can very easily add these to a regular card front and call it done, sign it and get it in the mail lickidy split!

Here is the pile I made. Only needed 6 for the swap, but made a couple more because I just loved them.

 I used Regal Rose and White and stock. Going gray (like the sky today) regal rose inks. The sparkly heart is the amazing sliver glitter sparkly beautiful oh my gosh got to have paper from Stampin Up along with all the items I used.... except for one little thing. And that is the wax melt that was used back in the day - where you melt a bit of wax and let it drip on the flap of a closed envelope then "stamp" a image in the melted goo. When it cools you have the melted little shimmer blobs of fun that is on my card. Yes, ye,s I had to much fun making these. My fav colors, my fav holiday, my fav vintage style. Oh my Stamping bliss!
So are you inspired to make a few Valentines now? How about entering an ATC swap. Make 5 ATC swaps and send them to me along with a Self Addressed Stamped Envelope, or bring them to a club or class. Be sure they arrive by March 1. You will receive 5 different ATC cards back. Remember to make the base 2 1/2" x 3" and put your contact info and list items used on the back of your swap.
Looking forward to seeing your stamp ATC work.
