Hello, my name is Taylor and I’m addicted to ATC’s. When I first discovered ATC’s several months ago I wondered “What’s the point… what am I supposed to do with these little pieces of art?” I finally decided to jump in and join an ATC swap. I bought an ATC book from Stampin’ Up to store my swaps in and I’ve since become addicted. I find myself reaching for my ATC book when I need some inspiration on color, layout, etc. It really comes in handy! And I must say that trading cards have a long history with me. I was always the lone girl trading baseball cards with the boys in elementary school. These are the ATC’s I made for an upcoming swap. The swap isn’t due until the end of March, but I found myself in a watercoloring mood last week so I decided to work ahead. I absolutely love this new baby set from Stampin’ Up! The hand-drawn, doodled/sketched look of the line images really drew me in. And in my opinion, Stampin’ Up was long overdue for a cute baby set. I stamped the images in brown Stazon and watercolored them with an aquapainter on watercolor paper. For the ribbon I cut two slits below the words, threaded the ribbon through, and tied it in front.
