Using New Schtuff and Leftover Snippets

I just finished making these Artist Trading Cards. The 2 1/2 inch by 3 1/2 inch ATC's are fun to make and a great way to use left over snippets of paper.

I made a total of four because I just can't let any of these bits of  gelli print papers go to waste. Look closely  and you can see that I used an old woven wicker, kitchen trivet as a texture plate to make the print for  these papers. 
 There are  lots of  trims, beads and ribbons in my craft closet because I spent years doing crazy quilting and   using these as accents on  my cards only seems right.

I'm entering these in the "Pixie's Snippets Playground #141 Challenge".

I'm also  entering these in the NBUS Challenge.

 Never-Before-Used-Schtuff (Stamps, Dies, EFs, etc.)
 NBUS stands for "Never Before Used Schtuff". My brand new, never been used Sctuff is the "Moonlit Fairy" stamp from Rubber Stampede. I used clear Versamark and Silver Zing embossing powder for these.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog today and comments are always welcome.
Have a super day!

  2. These ATCs are jaw-droppingly gorgeous, Kathy! The snippets of gelli print paper make the most beautiful backdrop for your stunning silver fairies!
