Even though I made the finger puppet ATC it still make me giggle uncontrollably to see it again.  ^_^  My husband and sister thought I was crazy when I started giggling at the ATCs. 

Jillybeans, where do you get your ideas. You are so creative! Love the finger puppet card.
Thanks, gozer! The ideas just pop in there!  ^_^

That food with faces is so great!   I would have imagine happy faces, as well.  But its awesome that they are crazed!

I received two cards yesterday from lolaandbean!  YAY!

For my pirate theme:  Eliza the Pirate!


and for my pickle theme: Dancing Pickle!


They are both so vivid and beautiful!  Thanks lolaandbean!  ^_^

That's right Gozer, triple points!  Boo-yeah!

I was guessing Q for Quidditch! But Quick Quote Quill beats that in scattegories.

Quidditch would have been a good one!  There are so many possibilities with these Harry Potter letters.  My husband and I make it into a game when I do the ABC ones.  I tell him what letter I chose and he has to guess what it is.  He's been having fun.  ^_^

2688  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) / Magic ATC Tutorial w/ Pictures (LOTS!) on: June 15, 2011 10:04:45 PM
I made what is called a "magic" ATC for my swap partner in the Ongoing ATC Swap - June 2011 and there were a lot of people asking how it was done.  I have a hard time imagining instructions, so this is for those of you like me who need some pictures along with instruction (and because I love pictures!).  I learned how to do this at a card making party a few years back.  Here is the ATC I made for my swap partner:



Oooooo, magic!

And now onto the instructions!

Step 1:  Cut your base card and another piece of paper for your border that will go on top to the normal ATC standards (2.5" x 3.5").  My base card is a old game card.  Yay for recycling!  I like because its nice and thick.


Step 2:  Cut an opening into the piece of paper that you are using for your border.  I have a nifty oval template that I use.


Step 3:  Cut a piece of white paper to stamp your image onto.  It needs to be just short of the length of the card.  


Step 4:  Temporarily align the white paper that you just cut behind the border.  I temporarily taped it to the border to hold it into place while I stamped it.  The tops of each piece of paper should aligned together at the top middle of the card.  Then stamp your image onto the white piece of paper.  Then remove tape and separate the border and the stamped piece.


Step 5:  Stamp the same stamp onto a sheet of acetate paper (also known as overhead sheets) using a permanent ink that is meant for all surfaces.  I use a Stazon ink pad.  They are wonderful!  They don't bleed so you can watercolor or marker over them without worrying about bleeding.  


Step 6:  Line up the two stamped images and tape the bottom layer to the acetate sheet to make cutting easier.  Cut out the acetate sheet to the same size as the other piece.  Then add a small piece of tape at the top middle to keep the two together.


Step 7:  Add color to the image on the white piece of paper.  Just lift up the acetate paper and draw/paint away!  I filled mine in with watercolors.


Step 8:  Now its time to cut a piece of white paper that will go in between the two stamped layers.  This one should be just a little wider than the opening of the border and as tall as the opening of the border but reaches all the way down to the bottom of the card.


Step 9:  Tape the piece of paper that you just cut to the bottom of the base card.  Make sure it is centered at the bottom.


Step 10:  Add double sized tape or glue to the side edges of the border on the back.  Try not to glue too far in otherwise the stamped pieces won't be able to side in and out.  Don't add glue at the top and bottom edges of the border.  I used double stick tape.  Mine has a brown backing that I peel off.  Apply the border to the base card.


Step 11:  Now its time to make some magic!  Take the two stamped layers and starting with the solid white and slide that behind the white paper that is attached to the card under the border.  Next slide in the clear layer under the border on top of the white paper that is attached to the base card.


Step 12:  Cut a triangle into the border so that you can punch a hole into the two stamped layers and add ribbon.


Step 13:  Embellish the border to your hearts delight!  I added real mini star fish because I have a friggin' ton of them and they are cute!  ^_^


Step 14:  ENJOY!


I now challenge you to make a magic ATC card!  ^_^
