Hello amigas/amigos

Today I have made my third project as a designer for
The Cuttlebug Spot 

Time is going very fast and I am sincerely having fun with my embossing projects using my cuttlebug.

Totally Frightful 
(Artist Trading Cards)
remember to click on the photos for a bigger view

Definition: Artist Trading Cards are little miniature works of art. The only common feature about an ATC is the 
size – they are 2.5" by 3.5". These cards can be decorated in a variety of ways and many rubber stampers make and collect these cards.

ATCs are swapped with other crafters and different craft groups have ATC making sessions. These can be a good way for rubber stampers to get to know other stampers and, as these clubs are run online as well as locally, even the most remote rubber stamper can meet other people.

Tip: ATCs are a great way to practice new techniques and experiment with different materials. 
Since this post is "photo heavy", I won't add much to it but the embossing folders I used:
1- Spider ATC--- Tiny Mosaics from a Cuttlebug folder and the Fabric from a Fiskars plate.
2- Apothecary Bottle---Script Texture and Distressed Stripes: both from Cuttlebug
3- The Tree------the background was embossed with another Fiskars plate called Stars.
All embossing was sanded with my Basic Gray Precision File set. I have this set since I started making cards and I have no complaints about it.
I am so very happy how my ATC's turned out.
I am reminding you to participate in The Cuttlebug Spot challenge this week. I would love to see what you made for this week's challenge:
"Scary Halloween


  1. These are fang-tastic! and how funny you talking about ATC. I was looking into them today to see what to do and how to make them, they are saying on the boards that at the next CHA theyd like everyone to bring their atc to exchange with other crafters, how fun is that!
    Thanks for sharing this with me.
