A is for ATC (artist trading card/coin) is the New Challenge at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers

 Welcome back to my blog after a Holiday hiatus, it was a nice rest and good to get back into doing some crafting. So for the first challenge of 2021 it's A is for ATC. Which is for either cards 2 1/2 X 3 1/2 inches or coins which are a 2 1/2 inch circle, it's amazing how much detail can be put on these tiny "canvases"  Look at the Graphic that Lee made for us this vhallenge.

Now are these not the most fabulous graphic you have ever seen. 

I had some ideas but nothing I thought of  fit on the measurements but I adapted one  to fit. 
Here is what I have come up  with.

Santa's Helper from Artistic Impressions "golden oldies"  section is the stamp I used and of course it is a NBUS, there were plans for it but the holidays sure did sneak up fast.  

I added Plaid paper glaze to her glasses as well as gold on the frames, the fur on the hat is white Nuvo drops. Joy is from a set of mini stamps that are self inking, they are so old I have no idea of the company they were from. 

Lee's graphics inspired me to make a coin as well as a card

I used the same image (as lee did with Edna) and Nuvo drops on the hat as well as Plaid paperglaze on the glasses. and of course JOY.

Since I was playing around with images to see which would fit better on a 2 1/2 X 3  1/2 inch card I finished a bonus ATCard.

This card I used
 another Art Impressions stamp (girfriends) and borrowing a sentiment from another stamp set (see had many images chosen) 

I'm entering this in:
Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge ~~ use a new/unused product (both images were unused)

Now that you checked out my artist trading cards and coin I hope you find time to join us in the challenge.  Don't forget to stop by the Main Blog and see the awesome Artist Trading cards the restof the design team have made.

Thank for stopping by today and I am hoping to keep up a bit better in 2021 than I managed the later part of 2020.
