I just got Tim's Sizzix ATC die, love it. So cut out a bunch of white blanks. Love the rounded corners and that they're all EXACTLY the same size...

I use Color Box Chalk stamp pads direct to paper, applying first a light color al over and then a deeper color around the edges.

Used my mallet to emboss the Q and heart from the "Love is in the Air" set Queen of Hearts folder, then skimmed over the top with the deeper color.

Placed a cake Peel Off (ecraftdesigns.com) onto Sookwang double sided tape, applied white Ritz micro fine glitter and burnished well, then cut around the shape. Used a small fine

tipped paint brush and applied my alcohol inks (Pinata) and blending solution. Removed the release paper on the back and adhered to my ATC.

Stamped the appropriate words (Quietfire Design "Queen of" set) with Distress stamp pads.

Using my mallet again, embossed the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots randomly around the elements.

Added half pearls or rhinestones in various colors.

Adhered the ATC to a second ATC for added weight and to hide the embossing on the back. Edged it with a Krylon gold leafing pen.

For these 3 ATC, I used Shimmer Sheetz. The light blue one on the left was streaked with alcohol inks, embossed with the Cuttlebug "Waves" embossing folder from the Asian Bundle set and high points lightly sanded. Cut on a diagonal, with a piece of sage green silk underneath. The Peel Off Fish was applied to some cardstock, cut out and painted with Tombows, adhered to ATC with Glossy Accents. Peel Off bubbles and some pale pink half pearls.

The next 2 ATCs are done on the Gold Shimmer Sheetz and colored with a lot of colors of alcohol inks (including greens, raspberry, espresso, pitch). Embossed with Sizzix Swirl embossing folder.


The BFly Silk one has Glossy Accents applied to some of the swirl areas, Ritz micro fine glitter "Warm Highlights". The BFly is applied to cardstock, cut out and colored with Tombows and Sakura Clear Stardust pen accents. Background is the rest of the sage silk piece as well as Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder and colored with green Color box chalk inks.

The Tulip is also applied to cardstock, cut out and colored with Tombows. Spellbinders die cut Lacy Squares. I applied Golden's Matte Medium to the area within the opening and sprinkled Glass beads, allowed to dry and covered the area with Glossy Accents. ATC edged with the Krylon gold leaf pen.

All 3 of these are ColorBox chalk stamp pads applied direct to paper. All have the edging of Krylon gold leaf pen.

The vase is one image cut in two pieces. They are both colored with ArtQuest Pallette paints, the pink one with the Nova White and Nebula Green accents; the other one with  Super Copper, flowers in Celestial Violet with Nova White on top and accents of Steller Green. Peel Off vines spliced as needed. Sakura flowers punched out from hand painted Kleenex tissue adhered to cardstock. Small rhinestones, pearls added to flower centers and accents on vase.

I did a selective embossing on the last ATC using a rubber mallet and Sizzix Garden's Edge embossing folder. Sponged Distress Green over high points, applied Pebbles Pearlescent chalks on flowers.

The large flower is a handmade embellishment from Lumina air dry polymer clay, painted with ArtQuest.

The BFly is applied to cardstock, cut out and colored with Sakura Metallic gel pens and collors moved around with water. Adhered to ATC with pop dot. Rhinestones added.
