I really do appreciate the comments you leave!

Just a little post today...
I have made two little ATC's.

They are both sort of based on the triple stamping technique
 (a favourite of mine - if you follow my blog you will have seen it many times
 both using rubber stamps and digis).

 This time I have used digis.
The first ATC uses Bugaboo's Pumpkin Ghost

I will link this to Open-Minded Challenges - Pumpkins!!

My second uses Spooky Halloween Tree from Dragons Lair Designs

In both cases the image was printed three times, wallet size.
 and then trimmed to fit different rectangles.
Colour was added with Promarkers and the embellishments are Table Scatter from Sainsbury's!

See you tomorrow!

Happy Crafting!


  1. Love both of these ATC's....the orange and touch of black on the white is striking!

  2. Awesome idea! Being new to your blog I have never seen that technique before...had to study it a minute. Wonderful effect and lovely ATCs...fab, really!!

    1. This is a tutorial I wrote for a DT I was on

      This shows 'full size' cards with stamping. For ATCs the dimensions are obviously decreased - and using digis means further adaptation

  3. Awesome idea and beautiful project! I have to search back on your blog to learn how! So fun!
    Thanks so much for inspiring!~kim
