Hi Everyone! Welcome to Scrappin' Studio Designs and the Scrapbook Steals Blog Hop!
I am sure you loved what Venetia Holbrook did over her blog with the ATC cards!
While I am a frequent shopper at Scrapbook Steals for my supplies; this time I can say I am super excited to join for my FIRST blog hop and showcase 7 Gypsies Vintage ATC cards. We were given seven cards to work with....varying colors, sizes, shapes etc. To begin, I started to list out some ideas like what theme I wanted to stick with, what paper line I really wanted to use-and then coordinate them with embellishments. I considered going with a more vintage theme-but knowing it was my daughter's 8th birthday in July and her birthday party is the day of the blog hop (!)-I had to go with "Marissa" as the theme.
What better way to kick off your birthday month than tubing up north with a friend!
Happy 8th Birthday!
The card on the left has two whimsical stamped flowers, colored with watercolor pencils. I popped them off the page (along with the frame) with some pop dots. Edge has a little green zig-zag trim.The ATC card on the right is a fun one. It's like a teeny folder. Inside pics below:
On the left I made a tag to fit in the folder slots. One side is this adorable fairy and frog. (We LOVE frogs in this house!) The other side is a photo mat. For the candles, I used watercolor pencils again. Love them!

and the back of the mini folder ATC card. I used perfect pearls on the left side to give a shimmered border, but the camera didn't pick it up!
And here are some balloons tucked in a pocket to help celebrate Marissa's birthday.
I hope you liked what you see and maybe are inspired to try some of your own if you haven't before! Getting hold of the 7 Gypsies carousel is a must for the cards! I fear that now that I have made these, I have to make more!
It was a fun project and quite the challenge. I truly hope you like what you see and thanks for visiting. If you have a blog, grab one of my buttons below.
