oh! i'm sorry, i forgot to reply! the bird and crown stamps were purchased at a local scrapbooking store, but i know stiffy found them on ebay as well!
the brand is autumn leaves, and they're gypsy style by rhonna farrer. here's an image of the full set - http://memoryvilla.com/product.php?xProd=4075&xSec=1
i haven't posted new ATCs in ages, i've been doing other crafting mostly, but i've got some to share!
this is one i made a while ago, but never posted. i was gonna use it for the alphabet p,q,r swap, but made the patchwork one instead. i sent it to teapotdnky last week, cause she loves her poodle!
blue vellum with the dymo word, affixed with a brad.
under the vellum is a sassy little poddle (from a vintage bridge score card), pretty pink and white polka dots and blue burlap textured paper.
and this is the last one i did for the movie atc swap, but it never got posted.
breakfast at tiffany's movie poster glued onto mirror like silver card that i'd stamped with black pigment ink before i glued it on. and then i added rhinstones!
the back had more stamping, and a diamond ring stamp.
these are more recent, i made them last month to send to people.
some bright ones for jMi, just for fun.
the paper reminded me of her! the initials have flocked stripes on them, and then i sewed vintage buttons on.
a vinyl applique card for taloola
i wanted something nature inspired, and when i found the printed twill tape, i knew what to do! the tree is woodgrain vinyl, and then i cut out a bunch of teensy little leaves and sewed them on as though they were falling.
and a poppy card for taloola as well
fairly simple, i mostly wanted to showcase the poppy button i'd gotten at a local quilt shop. the other buttons are all vintage, and the paper is this stuff that i'm completely in love with. i covered a book with it, and was so happy i had enough left to use for the card!
stifflersmom sent me the MOST AMAZING vintage snowglobe, it's from san fransisco with a moving cable car inside it and a nude mermaid on top! i adore it, so i made her a few atcs to say thanks!
snowglobe for stifflersmom
the image inside the snowglobe is of the moulin rouge. it's sandwiched between layers of acetate and paper, and the glitter inside moves just like a real snowglobe. i crumpled up the main paper and coffee dyed it, cause it was a bit too light. the suitcase brad was just for fun, to match the words!
and because she loves crows, i made her this one as well
the crow image is from a paper bag i got from an art store. it's called the upstart crow, and all their bags are stamped with a crow image. i used a different part of the bag to stamp the word crow with black pigment ink. i used the same pigment ink around the edges, though it wouldn't stick to the super glossy rusty orange paper.
this is my u is for umbrella for the alphabet s,t,u swap
i used to LOVE this technique! i used to make cards and stuff doing it all the time. i sandwiched crayon shavings and a little drink umbrella between wax paper and iron them together. trimmed it down to size, and attached it and the big U with a brad. the wax paper can be moved, and when you hold it up to the light you can see the umbrella much more clearly.
and my t is for tin for the same swap
i cut a pop can up and embossed it from the back. i prepared the backing card, and then punched holes in both the tin and the backing, and then i sewed silver vinyl around the edges so they wouldn't be sharp. i think it turned out really cool!
