Simple Stories Vintage Blessings ATC's

     Hello! Drea here with the Design Team, and I'm still fairly new to making ATC's (Artist Trading Cards), but these came together pretty quickly and easily with the Simple Stories Vintage Blessings Collection from FotoBella.com.


                                         Supplies:                                                      Tools:

* Vintage Blessings Collection Kit                                             * Sewing Machine (Optional)
* Worn Lipstick Distress Spray Stain


     Directions:

1. From one sheet of paper (Journaling Card Elements) out of the Vintage Blessings Collection Kit, cut and distress the edges of these 8 cards. 



2. Use Antique Linen and Worn Lipstick Distress Spray Stains to lightly spritz some of the cards on any white parts. Out of the 8,  I  sprayed 5. 



3. Add strips of Grateful Washi Tape to five of the cards. Then add some Bits & Pieces. Around the edges of the pink heart and ticket on the bottom row, apply Aged Mahogany Distress Ink, as shown in the last photo.



4. Add some phrases and images from the Clear Stickers.



5. The final and optional step is to add a simple straight stitch along the edges with a sewing machine. 



          Thanks for taking a look! To pick up this collection and get started on your own ATC's, shop FotoBella.com.

Christmas Card Day 2017

Christmas Card Day

What is the origin of Christmas Card Day you ask?

Well, this day honors Sir Henry Cole of England. He crafted the very first commercial Christmas card in 1843, he was 25 at that time. It was then considered a 'must' to send Christmas Cards each year, through the mail. Sadly, now days people find this craft tedious, stressful and takes up too much time.


The FotoBella Design team has hand crafted some Christmas Cards to get you inspired to make your own!

Simple Stories Vintage Blessings Layout

     Hello FotoBella fans! Drea with the Design Team, and I scrapped this photo of some fall foliage featuring the Simple Stories Vintage Blessings Collection from FotoBella.com.



     The larger birds with the quote was cut 4" X 6" from one of the papers in the Vintage Blessings Collection Kit, and inked along the edges with Fossilized Amber, Rusty Hinge, and Aged Mahogany Distress Inks. The smaller bird was added from the Vintage Blessings Bits & Pieces package. 



     Don't throw away those strips cut from the ends of your papers! I used a couple of them to frame the aqua paper, inking the edges of the plaid strip with Ground Espresso Distress Ink.



     Then I added a couple of strips of Vintage Blessings Grateful Washi Tape to the top of my page.




      For some flair and dimension, I finished it off with a few pieces of Chipboard.


   
     Thanks for your visit, and visit FotoBella.com for this fantastic, fall collection and so much more!
