Some ATC's for the Weekend

Well, I've been bad... I haven't posted in FOREVER to my blog, I know... But, here are 3 ATCs that hopefully will tide you all over for the weekend...
Here's my newest business card... I will be using it as my ATC swap for the the Northern California gathering on Sunday... I'm sooo excited to meet with fellow stampers. I used Cool Caribbean CS as the base for the ATC. I stamped this with the pattern from the Looks Like Spring set in Cool Caribbean. Then, I stamped the telephone stamp from Business Boosters in Chocolate Chip ink on Pretty in Pink paper. I colored the little heart with a Real Red marker. I mounted it on a paper pierced piece of Chocolate Chip paper. Then, of course, I had to use a pretty Prima flower, since I just finished the HUGE Prima bulk buy. I took a piece of Taupe grosgrain ribbon, folded it in half, and punched a hole in it and the CS base. I put the brad through the Prima, ribbon, and CS base.
The next ATC was made for my double-sided card stock swap. I used Notations paper, but I didn't want to use Office Accoutrement (no idea why not because I love that set!). Since I had just traded for I'm Here, I decided to use that one... I stamped the foot (really cute, too, I might say) on Whisper White then pierced along the edges. I got this cool little Cutter Bee piercing wheel... it makes even pierces without sitting with the stencil and the awl. I'm SOOOO loving this new tool!! It's made by EK Success, and their site has some really cool tips on how to use this ingenious creation! The base is Cool Caribbean CS matted with Notations double-sided CS. A small ribbon of Chocolate Chip grosgrain ribbon was placed over the top of the double-sided CS. The little foot was mounted with dementionals.
The last ATC was also for my ATC swap. This time, I used the Melted Pearls technique that Michelle Fischer (SDiegoGal) made me do for the April technique swap. I kinda like that technique... it makes a pretty cool effect. The tree from the Lovely As A Tree set was stamped with Certainly Celery craft ink and embossed with clear embossing powder. I used Brilliant Gold Pearl Ex to make the tree shine. The tab is stamped with the All Year Cheer II "I miss you" stamp.
