Hey Everybody!! Can you believe it??? 3 posts in 3 days--Whoooppeee!! I have been wanting to post my ATC's for awhile now but have been procrastinating (bad Me!!) For those of you who don't know what they are, the acronym ATC stands for Artist Trading Card. These cards are about the size of a hockey of baseball trading card. They have a theme of some sort, they always have more than one layer of paper and have some form of dimension to them. The theme is usually decided ahead of time and is open to interpretation. I have used rubber and digital stamps on all of mine so far.

Once a month a group of ladies that I know from the stamping community and I get together and trade our cards. We all follow the theme for the month and we make enough cards for each lady in the group as well as one for ourselves. We try to make our own cards as identical to each other for that month as we can. We then get together and trade our cards over coffee and treats.

It's a lot of fun to see what everyone comes up with. We then put all our cards in a binder in trading card sleeve pages so that we have a little keepsake "catalogue" of all our cards.

Here are the ones that I have made and traded so far with the themes for the month------->

Here's a shot or two of the process:

The finished product:

ATC's are a different kind of challenge and are a lot of fun!! Your group can be small or large. 6 to 12 people per group is probably best because making ATC's can be quite labour intensive!! I know a lady who trades her cards all over the world!! If you make artist trading cards, please leave me your link in the comments. I am pretty new to this and I always enjoy seeing what people come up with using the small "canvas" of the ATC.

Thanks for popping by!! Have a blessed day!!
