You're Just My Type

Wow, Thursday sure rolls around fast these days! I have a set of Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) for you today. I am in a swap at the Stamp Shack (of course) and the theme for this set is "That's So Funny". We had to create a set of ATCs with some kind of play on words, so I put on my thinking cap and got out my STEAMPUNK and SCHOOL PAPERS sets from LINDSAY'S STAMP STUFF and went to work. I covered my digital canvas with the ledger paper and then layered the typewriter over it. I added the text "You're just my" on the next layer and then sized it to 2.25 x 3.25 and printed a sheet of them and cut them out. I then stamped "type" on each one using letters from My Sentiments Exactly, swooshed a bit of black soot distress ink around the edges for extra depth and added a few dots of distress stickles in the corner. That piece got mounted on a black cardstock panel and that completed the front. Easy peasy!
Next, I decided to print up the ATC back FREEBIE that Lindsay has in her Mygrafico Shop. I think it's nice to put some information on the back to let the collector know a bit about the card. I love making greeting cards and doing mini books, and lots of other paper crafts, but I think ATCs are my very favorite pieces to create. I just love making and collecting them! Each one is so different and unique, even though we all have the same basic theme and instructions.
Since it's almost Halloween, I thought I would give you a last peek at a couple of the great Halloween sets Lindsay has in her Mygrafico Shop.
The Creepy Crow set is my all time favorite, but the Too cute to spook set is fun too! Gobble them up while you still have time to eek out a few more Halloween cards! Here is the DT list for this week...you know the drill! Have fun and happy digi stamping!
