atc swap, hatbox, ribbon & bunchie







I'm in an ATC swap with some of my friends. I LOVE ATC's, they are small, easy to store and oh so cute!! It's a winter theme swap, so I went straight to my Vintage Christmas stamp set by Crafty Secrets. The images in this set are adorable, I have loved this little girl or boy, whatever you want I guess :), since I saw it and this was the perfect time to use it! I stamped her with Archival Jet Black ink on confetti white cardstock by SU! This cardstock is great for the coloring with Copic's, there is no bleeding. I finally figured out that it's the whisper white cardstock that was causing me my bleeding issues. I used paper from the Earthy Paper Pad. I stamped the Greetings part of the sentiment and the snowflake with Brilliance Moonlight White on SU! textured cardstock. The is a crystal in the center of the snowflake, white lace and Martha's yummy white gold glitter around the edges of the image. I got the glittering around the image idea from LZ, she's GOOOOOD I tell ya!!

Get the Crafty Secrets goods from Crafty Secrets, eclecticpaperie or Sassy & Sweet Crafts.
Get the Copic's from eclecticPaperie or Ellen Hutson, LLC.


Oh, look what I found Sunday at a flea market. Isn't it beautiful?? It is to me :) I'm thinking this hatbox was used for travel. It's sturdy and it has the plastic handle on top. The fabric on the outside is like upholstery fabric, it's plush. The inside is just as pretty, love the green. There are some buttons and stuff in it that I got. I can just see a lady carrying this along with her on her journey. I plan on using it for my ever growing collection of lace and trim!

I found this old spool of ribbon too, isn't it gorgeous? Look at the shiny silver edge, looks like tinsel!



I snapped this picture of Bunchie in her bed while I was taking my pictures :) She's just about too big for her bed, but, she won't give it up!






Thanks for stopping by!
