ATC's for Happy Little Stampers ....

Hello again ......

I do hope you've enjoyed the weekend.  Ours has been lovely but it's coming to a close.  Monday is just around the corner and I'm looking forward to another busy week because .......  two weeks today I shall be away on holiday .... whoo hoo!!! (the countdown begins)

There's still lots to do though ...... like Blog challenges for instance.  Tonight sees the start of the September Happy Little Stampers ATC Challenge


Have you played along yet?  If not make this the month that you give ATC's a go, they're so much fun to do.
As you can see the theme this month is .... Shapes
What's your favourite shape then .... do you find yourself using circles a lot in your designs, or are you more for the clean lines of squares or rectangles?

I've gone for a mixture here ....... there's circles, squares and hexagons .... I like to make sets of ATC's, usually in 3's


The hexagon background is actually a piece of cardstock from my bit box.  It's been done using the embossing folder stamping technique ....... inking up a simple embossing folder, spritzing it with water and then using it to stamp the design instead of putting it through a machine to create the texture ......


I then stamped over the top with the little bee stamp, adding colour to the image with ZIG markers and a touch of sparkle to the wings.

The sentiment was stamped onto a snippet of white card, cut in half, and then attached to the ATC.


Circles next .......


Another piece of card from the bit box ..... coloured with blue distress inks.  I then went for the Bokeh effect using a circle stencil and more distress inks in various shades of blues and pinks.
I then stamped the words and heat embossed in clear before adding another layer of circles over the top using the stencil again, only this time I used clear texture paste through it to give some shine to the circles.
A few sequins here and there add a touch of sparkle.

And finally ...... squares


This is a fab little Memory Box stencil over the top of a coloured piece of card.
I then used a pretty leaf stamp to add detail around the edges and stamped the words on top using a black archival ink.
I finished off by adding a touch of Glossy Accents here and there to highlight some of the squares.

As with all the HLS Blog challenges the winner of the ATC challenge will win a $20 Gift Certificate to spend in the Happy Little Stampers store


Happy stamping!

Thanks for popping by .... enjoy the rest of your day.
Time for a nice glass of red I think and some catch up TV.

Cheerio until next time ........
