Trading - cards & tags


Greetings all, I've got a few busy weeks coming up - including a mixed media techniques course over at Big Picture Classes and a weekend (in NZ) to visit my elder son and his fast growing grandkids...SO...I thought I'd share the 'swaps' I'm participating in this month instead.

 First up Artist Trading Cards..."Time" theme...


Did you know you don't have to be a 'scrap booker' to be an ATC participant or trader??

did you know "Artist Trading Cards are 2.5 by 3.5 inch miniature works of art. They are works of art specifically made to be freely traded --- thus the name, Artist Trading Card (ATC). The concept of ATCs was developed by m. vänçi stirnemann an artist from Zürich, Switzerland. Artist Trading Cards are made to be traded in person or by correspondence. ATCs were first traded in North America at The New Gallery in Calgary, Alberta on September 27, 1997. " excerpt from The Artist Trading Card Committee introduction.  

Supplies used: Ranger ATC's (Kraft), Stampendous embossing enamel (Aged Ochre); Viva Ferro (Old Gold); Viva Inka-Gold (steel blue); Glimmer Mist (Bronze); Helmar scrap dots and 450 quick dry adhesives; Chatterbox chipboard wings; circle punch; Kaiser clock clear stamp; Dymo tape; Emboss It ink (clear); Tim Holtz Game spinners.

  Secondly Luggage Tag swap... "Floral" theme...


These tags were inspired by my 'embellishment guru' friend Tracy over at my2angels...they're having a 'yellow & gold' week...and all their range of yellow & gold products are all on sale.  A reason to smile - I've got a heap of  my2angels' stash, so I didn't even have to make and order and have DLH pick up this week LOL.

Supplies used: patterned cardstock from stash; Resin Cabochons Flowers; skeleton leaves; Perfect Pearls mists (sunflower sparkle & heirloom gold); Idea-ology chitchat stickers & reinforcers; Distress Stain (brushed pewter); glimmer mists (silver, yellow daisy, mustard seed); huge doses of my favourite medium Claudine Hellmuth( great as a mild adhesive as well as for colouring anything including metal); black felt ribbonHelmar 450 quick dry adhesive - btw - that's the major difference between Tracy and me, Tracy always uses her hot glue gun); Large Silver Key Charms; silver circle pendants; tulle; white ribbon bows.

Gotta get onto my next 'embellishment swap' now ... - 'grey/silver & flying' theme...any thoughts???

Till next time....keep smiling.... hugs 'n' hearts xxx Mazz xxxx

My fairy

Your fairy is called Columbine Goblinglitter
She is a bringer of riches and wealth.
She lives in mushroom fields and quiet meadows.
She is only seen in the light of a shooting star.
She wears lilac and purple like columbine flowers. She has gentle green wings like a butterfly.
