ATC swaps…

As part of my new A Muse Studio business I elected to participate in an Artist Trading Card swap with some fellow A|S consultants. Artist Trading Cards (ATC) are little pieces of artwork that you swap out like trading cards. They measure 2.5×3.5″ and by collecting them you collect artwork ideas–in my case, to share with my customers!  I joined two swaps  and needed to produce 9 copies of each ATC to swap out… I will receive 9 back for each group so a total of 18 ATCs, all different!!  These are the swaps that I will be contributing to Group 1 and I created them using “Life’s a Breeze”…

And these are the swaps I will contribute to Group 2 and I created these using “Snow Crystals”; sort of a smaller version of one of the cards I previously posted using the random stamping technique with this stamp set…

This was my first attempt at ATCs and I really enjoyed making them. I will share a photo of the swaps I receive in return sometime after October 1st . Looking forward to sharing some inspiring stamp art and giving you lots of fun ideas!


  1. Love your ATCs! I like how you created a little scene in the first one, so wonderful! And love the layering of snowflakes in the second. You’re making me want to play along too! 🙂

  2. Thank you so much, Monica! I really appreciate your feedback… these were my first ATC’s ever and making them was really fun–you should join the swap!!

  3. Beautiful Kris! Thank you!!

  4. I love what you did. I am making some ATCs for the second group
    It will also be my first time making them.
