ATC Lovin’!

Michelle here, playing with ATCs today!

I was so excited to see the Prima ATCs in the September mixed media kit!  When I sat down to work on them my mind just went nuts and I had so much fun creating!

Since I love a vintage shabby look I started with my trusty ‘ol white crackle paste from one of my past mixed media kits and just applied it with a pallet knife.

Once that dried (I used a heat gun to speed that along) I laid out where I wanted my prima flowers to go.  Some were.  I knew some would be cut in half so I just overlapped them to the next card since some were quite large flowers.

Next I dug through my ephemera box and got some great vintage looking images, these Tim Holtz paper doll and butterfly images worked great.

Finally I glued them all together and inked up the edges with a bit of the Lindy’s gang ink using the sponge applicator attachment.

To finish them off I added some sentiment stickers (these are some that I had in my stash by “A Vintage Girl & Her Daughter)

I really love how beautiful they all look laid out together but I know they will be a perfect addition to a gift or a sweet little pick-me-up for a friend.

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you are inspired to make something beautiful!

Tres Jolie Kit Club – September Mixed Media Kit – Prima ATCs “Alphabet Cards”

Hello, all! Welcome back to the Tres Jolie blog!

This week I am bringing you my project using the Prima “Alphabet Cards” ATC pack that came in this month’s Mixed Media Kit (the cards are not shown in the kit photo).

 

To start, I haphazardly brushed on some clear gesso to all of the cards, sprayed them with the Lindy’s Gang Moon Shadow Mist from the kit, then started building up my layers. Check out the video to see how it all came about!



I dug into my collections of mediums (many of which came from previous Tres Jolie kits), and just started decorating my cards! I added some stenciling using the gel medium and glitter from this month’s kit, and topped it with some stamping. I then added some quick flower sketches to some of the ATCs, some (more) stenciling, and some painting. Then I just grabbed up some black gesso and traced over the printed letters on the cards to bring those alphabet back to the front!

I really didn’t have any rhyme or reason when I put these cards together, I just went with what I was feeling like using at the time!

 

I hope you enjoyed this project and it gave you some ideas of what you can do with the ATC pack that came in this month’s Mixed Media Kit!

Cards, Tags and more October Kit by Annie

Hello everyone !

I am sharing today a different project : I have been doing Project Life since January and I thought it might be fun to do a spread in my album with this month’s Cards, Tags and more kit because I LOVE Fall and I have beautiful past memories of this season.  I just adore this 8×8 paper kit from Prima ! Love all the Fall colours and small details you can cut and use as ephemeras on cards, mini-albums, etc.

So here are my two layouts :

As you can see, I tried to use as many papers as possible because I think they are gorgeous and went perfectly with all my photos! I cut a few pumpkins, butterflies and cute ephemeras to decorate.  I used some of the chipboard leaves that I coloured with the ink included in the kit.

I used a circle punch to add details and some hearts from my stash.  For the words Fall and Friends I used a letter die with papers from the kit.

Here are some close-ups :

thank you for watching !

Artist Trading Coins using the September Cards, Tags and More Kit

Hey everyone, Kim here. Today I am going to share my first projects from the Card, Tags and more kit. This kit is full of beautiful papers from Dress my Craft along with a tag album and some chipboardartist trading coins.

 Let’s take a look at this months kit:

This kit is filled with a 6×6  paper pad to create a beautiful tag album, plus some ATC. Plus plenty of embellishments (for a full list of contents see here).

Here are 2 sets of artist trading coins I created. I don’t create a lot of these, but I love how they turned out:

How about a close up:

These were a fun, quick project to create. I loved that I could use 1 6×6 sheet of paper for both coins.

The chipboard swirls are from my stash. I used the embossing powder from the kit on them. I used some Tim Holtz chit chat phrases that I cut up and inked, added a few pearls and flowers, DONE!

 

Here is the second set:

And a close up:

 

I used the same formula to create this set. One sheet of paper, some chipboard, chit chat phrase and flowers. I think these have a more festive look to them. It wasn’t my intention, I’m not ready for the cold weather that comes with the Holidays.

 

Today’s tip: If you need to make a large quantity of a project, make it simple and follow the same formula. Just change your embellishments. It will make life much simpler.

That’s all I have for today. Thanks for stopping by.

Tags by Annie – Cards, Tags and more Kit

Hello everyone !

This is the last day of the month and I am back today sharing some tags I made with the Cards, Tags and more July Kit !

I took 3 different papers from the 6×6 paper pad and cut the top corners and punched a hole to create 3 tags.  I used some peaces of the chipboards included in the kit and coloured them with paint.  I added some washi tape, ephemeras, wood shapes, coupons and flowers to decorate them.

See you soon for next month’s kit reveal !!!

Gift ATC’s with Ginny

Hello again!

Today I’m sharing with you my ATC’s created with the Card, Tags and More Kit from Tres Jolie Kits.

These were really fun to create with. There are loads of ATC/tags to alter in this kit, one for everyone in your family, perfect as little cute sentiment gifts just to let people know your thinking of them….

I have two sets to show you, a floral Shabby Chic set which incorporated flowers from the January Scrapbook Kit too and another set using just the Cards Tags and More kit, which is more striking to look at.

Lets have a look….

 

 

 

I used one of the large ‘Classic Cards’ Wooden ATC’s for my background base and then used the ‘Lovely Prints’ set layered up over the top.
I used 3 of these, one I left as it was showing the print pattern and the other two I covered with some of the Art Paper.

 

The large background tag I added some Prima Graphite texture paste stencilling.

 

I used the 7gypsies adhesive doilies wrapped around the sides of the ATC.
I added some Tim Holtz tissue tape around the ATC too from my stash.

 

The embellishment clusters used the flowers and resin icons arranged over the ribbon I tied around the ATC.
The scrabble tiles were from my stash as were the druzzy stones.

 

I attached 2 of the Velvet Trinkets to dangle at the bottom of the tags.

 

The leaves were from the flowers sets in the Scrapbook Kit.

 

Now to show you the second set…. shabby chic ATC’s

 

 

 

 

This set is using the small plain wooden ATC’s which ive lightly brushed over with some gesso.

 

I used some small cut up pieces of the floral chipboard piece in the Scrapbook kit painted with gesso and built the flowers up over that.

 

In the background you can see the I have used a roughly torn oblong of Art Paper.
The ATC’s were finished off with a decorative tile and Nuvo Crystal drops.

 

I used small wooden sentiment titles from my stash to personise them into sweet little messages to gift to dear ones and friends.

 

The last thing I did to them was to rub over some Prima Opal Magics to the edge of the flowers, wooden title words chippy and the tile.. this adds a little glimmer to the whole thing. This was from a previous kit.

 

The flowers are a mixture from the Scrapbook kit and the Card Tag and More kit.

Cards, Tags and more by Annie Carignan

Hello !! Have you seen this beautiful Cards, Tags and more kit this month? It is filled with beautiful products from Prima.  You have plenty of supplies to create beautiful projects like mini-albums, tags, ATC’s, cards, Art Journal spreads, layouts,  the possibilities are endless !

I like to go out of my comfort zone once in a while so I decided to create ATC’s, something I haven’t done very often !  So I chose the 3×4 wood ATC cards.

Here is the kit :

A new year has begun and every January, I always like to look forward and try to make new resolutions for the upcoming months.  That is why I chose to create 4 ATC’s with positive quotes on them.  I will put them where everyone can see them in the house, because they are good for my kids too.

I chose a different 6×6 paper for every ATC and adhered on the wood.  I wanted to put some watercolor on them so I put a coat of clear Gesso on the paper.  I cut out some of the Darice on all 4 and then put some flowers, art titles printery and resin embellishments. The quotes are from my stash. If you would like to do something similar and you don’t have word stickers, you can always type them in Word, print them and cut them.
