Crafty ATC Swap!

Smiley from millan.netGood Friday mornin'!

I'm in another atc swap with some of my friends and I chose to make an atc tag using the new stamp set Christmas Joy from Crafty Secrets!
I love this new set, the possibilities are endless with this one! The sentiments, flourish and birds can be stamped inside the Christmas tree ornaments, like I did here. Love those sweet little birds!

I used SU! Confetti Tan for the atc base and paper from the Radiant Paper Pad. The ornament and #25 were stamped on Neenah white. I rubbed Ranger Distress Vintage Photo & Fired Brick on the Confetti Tan tag and then I stamped over that with Vintage Photo ink. I stamped the #25's from the t!m holtz Bingo stamp, punched them out with my 3/4" circle punch and shabbied up the edges. I put a drop of Glossy Accents on each one and then a put a clear button on top. The clear buttons were a flea market find, a baby food jar full of them, over 100 for .75!! I'm so thrifty, LOL!!! Then I glued those on paper clips with E6000 and clipped them on the paper.

I punched the snowflakes and distressed them with my Distress Old Paper ink and added the buttons. The tree is a Martha Stewart punch that I covered with Martha Stewart White Gold glitter. The ribbon is from a friend, I distressed it too with the Vintage Photo ink. I used my 1/2" circle and my tag corner punches for the top of the atc. I'm so anxious to get my Christmas/winter swaps, I know they'll be over the top!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~I've been meaning to show you what I got at Mtn. View during the Bean Festival. They had all kinds of vender's set up selling their goods and there was a silver jewelry one with some gorgeous jewelry! In one of the cases was this tiny antique sterling silver pin cushion!! I almost hit the ground when I spotted it! The lady said she had it in her antique store when it was open a few years back. I took a picture of it on an ink pad so you could see the true size, isn't it darling?

I was supposed to take pic's of the outhouse races for my friend Suze and totally missed the race, I was to busy shopping...ugh. Sorry, Suze, maybe next year!

Gotta head out to work, have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
