ATC's ~ Crafty Secrets and my weekend

Good Morning!
I have a couple of ATC's to show you and a few pic's of my weekend.

I made these with the new Crafty Secrets stamp set Art Studio. This set is perfect for the paper crafter. There are SO many great vintage stamps, I had so much fun creating with them!

I added ink to the card base with my Ranger Distress inks and a blending tool, then I stamped the word/paint brushes stamp over the Distress inks.

Then, I went to town adding embellishments and more images. I've had the metal corners for a loooong time. I got them on line at Bonnie's Best, I think it was? The ladies bracelet is a piece of a necklace I got at a flea market, it's plastic with rhinestones, I just snip off what I need. The heart ghost shape is covered with Glossy Accents and sprinkled with glitter.

Supplies: Stamps - Crafty Secrets Clear Art Stamps Art Studio. Paper - CS Radiant Paper Pad, confetti cream cardstock, pink crepe paper. Ink - Ranger Distress inks, Copic markers. Acces. - sticky lace, linen thread, brown twine, button, Heidi Swapp Ghost Shapes, t!m holtz idea-ology pieces, gold metal corners, Glossy Accents, glitter. Tools - HomePro LR tool for attaching the metal corners, Martha Stewart lace border punch, blending tool.

My little love.

I picked these up at a couple of flea markets Saturday. My kitchen has a lot of red and white checked stuff in it, my curtains, spoon rest, melamine plates (I got those in an antique shop in Branson, MO. I was giddy). I remember these coffee cups from long ago, they had names on them, you could pick out a cup with your name on it, although this doesn't have a name on it. I've decided I need a set of these to go in my kitchen. I think they would be cute on a mug tree sitting on my Hoosier.
I hope you have great day, thanks for stopping by!
Don't forget to go vote!

I love the ATC's....all your work, really! When dh and I were newlyweds (nearly 35 years ago) I had a red and white checked kitchen. It's still my fave!
