VIva Las Vegastamps! Design Team Time Again!

This project will be published in the May issue

So, I had to remove the photos from this post.

They will be back in June.


I'm re-applying for the 
Viva Las Vegastamps! 
design team!

Yeah, I love love love this company!
And we have the best Fairy Craftmother :)

I decided to do an ATC this time around, with some new stamps!



Wanna make this cute little ATC?

Well, then! 
On with the show.....

Supplies: 
Chipboard or matt board ATC (2.5"x3.5")
Card stock ATC (I used a Ranger manilla ATC)
Small piece of burlap or fabric
Scrap of white card stock
Background stamp
Miracle Tape
Pop Dots
Crystal Lacquer
Mixing cup (I used a recycled pudding cup)
Itty bitty paint brush
Markers
Black ink (I used Memories ink)
Scissors
Paper trimmer
Scrap of blue paper
Tooth pick
Distress Inks (Broken China, Dusty Concord, Mustard Seed)
Mini mister with water
Heat gun
Shimmer/Glimmer Mist (I used Memories Mist in Iridescent)


 Trim 1/4" off two sides of card stock ATC to make it measure 2 1/4 x 3 1/4".
(I trimmed the top and the right side)
Use Tim Holtz's "Wrinkle Free Distress" technique on ATC.
Be sure to dry with your heat gun.
 Ink back ground stamp using Broken China Distress Ink.
Spritz inked stamp with Shimmer/Glimmer mist.
Stamp ATC.
Dry with heat gun.
 Stamp mushroom using black ink, in lower right corner of ATC.
 Stamp clouds on white card stock using Broken China Distress Ink.
Cut them out.
 Stamp sentiment on blue card stock scrap.
Trim around and cut into a flag shape.
(oops, sorry, I decided to have my flag facing the other way after I snapped the photo!)

 Add clouds to ATC.
Put Miracle Tape on the back of your flag, and stick tooth pick to the Miracle Tape.
Trim tooth pick to fit card.
Use Crystal Laquer to adhere tooth pick to card by putting a thin line
of Lacquer on card and pressing tooth pick into it.
Press down flag.
 Stamp mushroom on scrap of white card stock.
Color with markers.
 Cut out the mushroom you just colored.

 Add colored mushroom to ATC using pop dots.

 Squirt a little Crystal Lacquer into a mixing cup.
Add a little Terri Sproul Mixer, and stir well using a tooth pick.
Paint onto mushroom top.
 Put some Miracle Tape onto the chopboard/ matte board ATC.
Remove liner and press burlap onto the tape.
Put some more Miracle Tape on top of the burlap, and remove the liner.
Press ATC onto the burlap.



And, here's your wiener!
Sammy, LAST WINTER, in the snow He adores the snow!
