Something a bit different

I can’t believe that September is almost over already, where did the time go. So despite all my plans to be in good time for challenge entries here I am scrabbling to get them in at the last moment. Today I finished my entry for this month’s progressive challenge at Outlawz Challenges.


Materials used:
Nicecrane Designs – Flower Children Set (if you entered the challenge last month the image comes free)
stamping card
snippets of red, orange, yellow and blue card
Copic pens

I printed out the image 4 times to the size I wanted for an ATC and coloured them with the Copics in 4 different colourways. I then made 4 ATC blanks in the colours to match the images. I trimmed my images down to fit the ATC’s leaving a narrow border around the edge and stuck them down.

I belong to an ATC exchange group and am always running out of ATC’s to send out so another 4 to use is really good. I have a feeling I will be making a lot more in the days to come.

Before I go I just wanted to draw your attention to a competition Deedee’s Digi’s is running to celebrate World Card Making Day. You can find details on her blog here: so why not go on over and take a look.

Thanks for dropping by. Take care.


I would like to enter my ATC’s into the following challenges:
Outlawz Progressive Challenge – September
Pixie’s Snippets Playground – Week 196
Lil Patch of Crafty Friends #18
Crafty Time Challenges – September


About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.

    A wonderful design for your ATC’s, and loved the different colors of this cute little ballerina. N/Crane has the most lovely designs, and your post reminds me I need to pay a visit (as well as use some designs I’ve had for a while!) Well done! TFS & Hugs
