House Mouse ATC

Morning Tea

It's time to wake up and STAMP!!! :)

House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge #101: ATC can thank me for this fun challenge. ATC's (Artistic Trading Cards) are miniature works of art. They are 2 ½" X 3 ½" and fit inside standard card-collector pockets, sleeves or sheets. The sky is the limit with this fun art. Check out the challenge blog for all the design team samples and prize information.

ATC's are prefect for using up scraps...and that's just what I did! This paper I've had AT LEAST 6 years!

Stamped some mouse foot prints with Metallic Silver Ink. Check out all the bling going on with glitter and rhinestones. YEAH BABY!

If you are going to be trading your ATC's...remember to put your name and any other info you want on the card somewhere. I had some fun on the back of mine :)

Turned out super cute if I do say so myself

AMAZING how much can be packed on such a little canvas! Now go have some stamping fun making ATC's! Maybe you will even find someone to trade with!

Hey Lori, this was a fun challenge. Amazing what you can pack on a little space, and you sure proved that with your entry. Love the colors. Never think to use the mice prints, and I don't make ATC's very often, thanks for the inspiration.

So cute - I love all the little paw-prints. I think that stamp may be one of my new favourites!

I have only ever made a couple of ATC's but I really enjoyed this challenge,, it does make you think about what will fit onto such a small card and not be too cluttered :-)
I must remember to write the details on the back too ,,, thanks for the reminder ! :-)
