Catching Up: ATCs

I've gotten rather sloppy about blogging my work these last few months, so it's time for me to catch up.  Before I do a post on the cards I've made, I'll post the ATCs.

Here are my ATCs from November:

(Sorry, I did a lousy job of taking pictures of the cards.  I promise that in real life my borders are even and everything is glued on straight!)

I love that last one!  I used a new Spellbinders die to cut and emboss the flowers.  They're delicate to work with, but so worth the effort!

Here are the ATCs I did in December:

 Swap theme: Pretty Papers

  Swap:  Mystery Image

I colored the candy cane with my Spica glitter gel pens, so it's really sparkly in real life.  Looks like my scanner chopped off some of the corner bling, but they really do add a lot to the card.

And finally, here's what I did this month:

  Swap:  Mystery Image

The lines along the sides are gold Dazzles which I colored with a brown Sharpie pen.  The monkeys are rolled and raised on foam.  I was going for a jungle look with my background stamping, but I'm not sure I succeeded -- sometimes things look better in my head than on paper!

  RAK for a friend  :)

  Theme:  Hearts, Hearts, and more Hearts


As you can see, I've started doing fewer ATC swaps than I did when I first started making them.  I find that I miss making cards if I do too many ATCs, so I guess cards are my real passion.

Next post will be a catch-up on the cards I've made in the last months.  I hope you enjoy seeing the ATCs!
