My First Atc

I thought it would be fun to join in the fun with my SBS15 sisters who are doing an ATC swap. I have never made an ATC so I had to Google the information I needed, I found it here at Charmed Card & Crafts

So what is an Artist Trading Card (ATC)?

An ATC is a piece of art that is small and perfectly formed! It is sometimes easy to think of it as a small handmade card, you still do the same work on the trading card – just as a smaller version!

You can either have original ATC’s, which means each card you swap is different, or an edition, which means all cards in your group are the same. The fi nal category is a series, this means that the cards are based on one theme but all cards are different.

Some of you may know about the old fashioned trading cards, like footballers or cartoon fi gures. Well this is very similar only it is along a crafty theme! There are two main things to remember about ATC’s…..

1. The ATC must measure 2.5” x 3.5” (64mm x 89mm).
2. They must never be sold, only swapped or given. To make a true trade, the cards must have the following information on the back. Your name, the date and the reference number. So for card one you put 1 of 4, card two is 2 of 4 and so on.

You can stamp on the cards, use watercolours, inks, or chalks. You can add ribbons, peel offs, rub ons, brads, and buckles – ANYTHING! ATC’s are very similar to the cards that you normally make just smaller.

P.S I just made the base of my ATC and it looks small 3.5" x 2.5" I asked hubby what he thought and in his wisdom he said "are you sure that shouldn't be Centimetres?"
Now theres a new concept postage stamp swap!!
He didn't see the funny side of me laughing.

Crafts are here

Crafts are here, crafts are there,

My craft supplies are everywhere.

I really should clean this mess,

but I like it I confess.

Floor is littered, chairs are piled,

Kitchen's looking pretty wild.

On the table, counter too,

Seems that any place will do.

Hall is stacked with cartons high,

filled with things folks like to buy.

Garage is full, but so far....

there's still room to park the car.

I never have an idle day,

New ideas come my way.

Don't know yet what I'll create,

but my imagination's great.

My family smiles, they don't complain,

although at times I am a pain.

but when all is said and done,

I really am a crafty one!
