I don't have anything planned this weekend other than getting my August PAT cards done so I've got time to play, but I didn't get to trade the two cards I made for the last a-thon so I'm feeling a bit left out. :(

10-02-2009, 05:52 AM
I'm playing as much as I can. Hope it's much :).

10-02-2009, 06:24 AM
woohoo..well it is 8.23pm and I have done all my chores..now it is time to play..:D:D

10-02-2009, 07:32 AM
Itīs 1:30 pm here, so still a few hours left before I can get started. Canīt wait for it - I got new stamps to play with :jiggy:

10-02-2009, 07:47 AM
I hope I get a chance to get something made...but, I told myself I could not do more trades till I catch up my due itraders! Maybe I can finish those while I am at work (yes, I am carrying my cards with me so I do it when I get a chance!). I am working all weekend, but I can squeeze in some time between sleeping, work and kids....maybe? Here's hoping!

10-02-2009, 08:08 AM
well this weekend is a long weekend ..Monday is a public holiday..woohoo..:D:D

10-02-2009, 08:12 AM

Hey, it's after 5 here... yippee!

I need to make dinner and keep visiting with my son about his trip to Spain. His flight was an hour late but that's not too bad, overall.

I'll be back in a bit, hopefully with something wonderful to show you. LOL!

Here is my first card

Cute as a Bug!!

10-02-2009, 09:55 PM
best laid plans...right?

Picked up boys from school, took them for allergy shots....while at the VERY CROWDED Drs office, child says "My ear hurts--has been hurting for a couple days"....so, we wait around a couple hours so they can check the ears....sure enough...bulging, red, puss pocket ears! LOL

So, it is 7 PM here....much later than I planned to be home, and we still need to get the antibiotics filled tonight.

Plus, get a nap before work....so, plans for stamping tonight are off...but, tomorrow looks promising (so far! LOL)

10-02-2009, 11:38 PM
So quick question for those of you who use acrylic stamps... what inks work the best for you? I've had good luck with versafine and chalk inks.
I wanted to use some Tim Holtz distress inks, but they sort of bead up on the stamp. Wonky image. Anyone else have this problem and what do I do to make the ink stick correctly?

10-02-2009, 11:47 PM
well Helen they are distress inks....so we expect them not to be perfect..I used them on my Fairy cards backgrounds...

10-02-2009, 11:47 PM
I haven't had time to create new cards from scratch, but I did manage to re-colour some stamped cards I'd done previously. I hope that still counts.

I've found that the distress inks are not that great for stamping, but better for distressing. I love them, but I don't think they are meant so much for stamping good images...distressed looking images yes.

10-03-2009, 12:14 AM
so Ducky have you read my pm????

Just Ducky
10-03-2009, 12:22 AM

OK, people are making animal cards this time. I have a lot of simple animal stamps and will try them next.

10-03-2009, 03:55 AM
I just use what my hands fall on first..lol

10-03-2009, 04:01 AM
Lorraine, it's usually my logic too :).

I have tried two new things this time. Watercolours was the first (raven cards). I haven't used them after elementary school... And gel pens are the second. I bought two of them from Lady Hey last June and haven't used them when I've made ATCs. Now I'm testing them. You'll see soon how the gel pens worked (or didn't work...).

10-03-2009, 04:35 AM
Here is the gel pen card. Stamped butterfly coloured with gel pens.

HHC - could you please save Walk a Path for me??? Yes, I know the day is 'young'. I'd love to get lots more cards made but someone always finds out I'm home alone.....

I've had my eye on this a-thon and then was sick yesterday but I've been on a stamping binge lately so this fits with my mood. Would it be ok if I jump in here and do what I can to play the rest of this weekend?

10-03-2009, 12:59 PM
Hi Kristin! I'd love to see your cards :).

10-03-2009, 01:30 PM
Great! I'll go see what I can get done.

HHC - I saw your question on acrylic stamps. That is the main issue with them - some inks bead up on them. The more you use them the less that will happen but Pigment ink is better than dye ink. (Dye ink has so much water in it. Pigments are thicker and can be embossed. Pigments usually need to be heat set.) Solvent inks are not recommended - they can actually eat into the stamp and tend to permanently stain. Hope this helps.

10-03-2009, 02:17 PM
I have a huge pile of almost ready ATCs. They need to dry a little bit. It's too late to take pictures today but I'll upload the pictures in the morning.

I found some more magnolia stamp images and I'll use some markers to colour them.

10-03-2009, 02:49 PM
Remember what I said about best laid plans....update! LOL

I took a ton of stamps, ink pads, colored pencils, etc to work to play with to keep busy and awake...as we have been quiet lately...

WELL>>>>> 3 admissions and TONS of running crazy later.....I ended up being mandated to work overtime!

I ended up being able to go home only 2 hours late....but, after a 10 hour CRAZY BUSY shift...I am in no mood to play...I just want to SSSLLLLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEPPPP the day away!

I have showered and am in jammies...so, all that is left is to move my tired butt up the stairs and cuddle in!

If I wake up before time to run back out the door to work, I will be back--maybe with some energy to actually sit down and make SOMETHING...ANYTHING! LOL

Have a great day/night everyone!

10-03-2009, 02:52 PM
I hope you get caught up on your rest Tamrantula!

10-03-2009, 02:59 PM
I think I'm going to sleep soon. It so quiet here. Hope to see more people here tomorrow.

10-03-2009, 03:11 PM

I'm on the west coast... so there are several across the US who are up long before me. They must be creating art. :)

I hauled all my supplies to work again...and didn't even get a chance to open my bag...we ran crazy ALL night!

Here is one more.

Iris Glimmer: Hand stamped flower, watercolor with watercolor PearlEx high lights. The background paper has been altered with Opalite ink and Glimmer mist - neither of which can be seen on the scan. It does glimmer in real life. Background is mounted on 2 layers of cardstock. LE of 2.

Both Iris Glimmers have TRADED.

10-04-2009, 02:57 PM
BTW - how is everyone getting such large images in your post? Are you just dragging and dropping instead of doing the attachments?

10-04-2009, 02:58 PM
I use "Insert Image" button. It is the yellow based little button over the message box. Then you can change the size (small, medium, large). I don't use Thumbnails.

10-04-2009, 02:59 PM
I haven't gotten my coffee yet. I've read and written sooooooo many PMs. And actually, I'm hungry.

10-04-2009, 03:04 PM
Tried it but must have done something wrong. I'll see if I can figure it out.

10-04-2009, 03:06 PM
OK - I'm gonna try it again.http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/index.php?n=105461

The link to the image in my gallery is active and works but I'm not seeing the actual image in the post.

10-04-2009, 03:10 PM
You need to put the image location between those tags. And no spaces allowed.

10-04-2009, 03:15 PM
One more time.
I see the tags but it still doesn't want to show the image. I'm MAC are you PC?

10-04-2009, 03:16 PM

Here is your link Kristin. You need just remove those spaces.

10-04-2009, 03:17 PM
And if you want, you can change the word "small" and use for example "medium".

Oh, it shortened the address. Then you need to replace the address.

10-04-2009, 03:27 PM
I collect here all my available cards because they are all somewhere alone in the thread. It's easier to keep them in one or two posts now.

OK- Sniisk and Ducky - I swear to you that I am doing what you say but still no dice. There are no spaces when I see the address and I'm not getting the options - small, medium. HMMM. I did just upgrade Safari and I am having some trouble on some web sites with certain functions. That may be the problem. I can keep doing the attachment thingy until I can figure this out - I just thought the larger image might be a fun option. If I noodle over this I might come up with something. Thank you so much for helping!:jiggy:

10-04-2009, 03:30 PM
Do you try to post this pic here?

10-04-2009, 03:31 PM
Yup that's the one! How did you get it?

Well, I am done for the night. Thanks to everyone who traded with me. I wanted to do more than 7 cards, but I am not feeling at all well and I need to stop for the evening. This was great and I would love to do it again and hopefully make even more cards.

To those I traded with and to those I didn't: the artwork here was ALL stunning. Never selll yourself and your artwork short! This is supposed to be fun.

Hugs and goodnight!


10-04-2009, 03:33 PM
First I went to your gallery. Then I copied the address of the picture. Then I came here and pushed the "Insert Image" button. And then just pasted the address there. And chose "OK". Then I had the image line in my message box.

10-04-2009, 03:34 PM
Good night Doreen!

10-04-2009, 03:39 PM
Yup! Yup! That is exactly what I did. I promise I followed directions. So it's definately my computer. It may be a setting. I just checked my security settings and I don't think that's the problem. It's something some where. I recall this being an issue for Mac users - it came up at a meeting but I have no memory of the solution. I'll have to ask my Dad and see if he remembers. Thanks for the instructions!

Well I should go try to work on a few more cards. Sniisk I'll check in with you tomorrow before I seal any envelopes.:D

10-04-2009, 04:20 PM
Here are my last two cards.

Are you doing a Right click on your card?
Then Click on Properties
Then Highlight the address STARTING with the www
Then click on Copy
Then OK
Come here..CLICK 'Go Advanced'/Write your post....click on the little yellow square in the tool box.
A window will come up ...PASTE the address in the area.
It will say one of these: small , medium, large You can leave it as it is or just change that one word.

10-04-2009, 05:30 PM
Yes - the thing is I'm on a Mac with the newest version of Safari. As a result I don't see exactly the same thing as I see when I'm on a PC so I am doing the same process just as I see it on the Mac. I'll go try this on my PC and see if it works.

This is still available.

10-04-2009, 05:46 PM
It worked! Sigh! OK so I dragged out my old PC lap top - it's very old. It did turn on and I could connect so I tried once again to follow eveyone's instructions and as you can see it worked! It really wasn't me (for once) it is indeed the browser on the MAC. It's the newest version of Safari and it is giving me fits on some web sites - apparently there is a compatibilty problem with this site also. I can do the attachments just fine - it's the image active link that isn't uploading to the server properly. The one thing I need to still figure out is the small medium large choice. I must have missed that.

THANK YOU TO EVERYONE FOR HELPING ME! I so appreciate it! Now that I've narrowed down the issue it's probably time to download Firefox as a Safari alternative. I couldn't have figured this out without everyone's feed back. This will be helpful info for other Safari users. Many many thanks!

10-04-2009, 05:50 PM
Okay! You're almost there!!! You can do this when you first are inserting the image, or you can go to "edit" on your post ... when you see this: http://www. atcsforall.com /forum/ gallery/images/2964/2_Oct_SAT_002.jpg then insert the word small or medium here ... http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/images/2964/small/2_Oct_SAT_002.jpg

Well, I have had a nap...and have an hour or so before I have to help kids with laundry and showers....and about that long before my sister pops in for her childs homework--so, darn it...I am going to MAKE at least one card!

Now take a rest and put down the glue bottles, glitter and stampers for goodness sakes!! :huh: LOL! Hehe!!

One of these days I am going to have to give this a try!;) I can literally see myself upstairs in my lair at 5am, wired out on coffee and energy drink with stuff glued all over me!!:D LOL! (Actually, that sounds pretty darn fun!:twitcy:)

10-04-2009, 08:34 PM
well, now I know whata plucked duck feels like... man I don't think I will ever get this mess cleaned up... and this is STAMPING ???? I did 8 cards today... but sadly
only got 3 suitable to show.... but my trash can is happy... He's so full:jiggy:



10-04-2009, 08:36 PM
LOL - WIRED is the word all right! I think I'm winding down though. Here is my last offering for the night.

This is sort of a grunge look for Halloween. The background is: My citrasolve, direct to paper chalk ink, gold Opalite, glimmer mist, (the shimmer does not scan) and an aida cloth texture stamped on top. Die cuts and punches for the silhouettes. LE of 4


10-04-2009, 08:37 PM

10-04-2009, 09:37 PM
Your cards are beautiful and having fun is what it's all about!

10-04-2009, 09:38 PM
Since my weekend burst into little pieces all around me....I am going to try one more time to take things to work and work on them tonight...then, I am going to pretend I am in Australia...and pretend we decided that this a-thon is going on into the Monday holiday...and DARN IT...I am GOING to post some cards tomorrow! I may not trade any, but at least I will post some! LOL

I spent some time stamping images...and I am going to take them to work to color them, and cut them out...and do some backgrounds...then, I will bring them home to put them together....

Everyone cross your fingers for me that tonight is a more normal "quiet" night then the past two have been!

10-04-2009, 09:56 PM
Oh I love it Jaw . . .very cute :)

Holy Moly, I have a ton of envelopes to deal with tomorrow . . . eek!!!

Here's hoping my limited organization skills get it all right . . .

Just Ducky: I could do some more, but I don't think anything would be dry enough to finish tonight, my inks smear for hours before they dry . . . I'm a newb at stamping so I'm not sure if they're supposed to or not. My ink pad is old and was the only one I happened to find . . .

Although, last night they were smearing all night, but now I seem to have some pieces that dried, weird. Maybe I can accomplish something . . .

10-04-2009, 09:57 PM
Hey everyone - MIA today - my boyfriend wanted me to meet his daughters - aarrgghh - They were cute - I think I still have time to do a couple of cards!! This is my first a-thon - it has been fun -- I will have to make sure to lose the boyfriend next time - lol

Celeste... hoping you can show us some of your stuff... you can work on cards till
midnight... but you can load them to the thread here tomorrow if need be... and how about a state name ?
out west covers a lot of land...

10-04-2009, 10:38 PM
Ducky, do you know how much I adore you? :wub:

Okay, I've fed, and now need to get to work...

Before I upload more, here's what I have still available:


10-04-2009, 10:51 PM
Well, here are the few that I have finished...and I have many partly finished...don't tell the a-thon police, but I will finish them tonight at work and put them together in the morning....then, post tomorrow!

I figure it is sorta still like today..since I work nights, it is sorta like the day hasn't changed! LOL

33840 # 2 Fish in jar (traded)

33841 # 3 Crows

10-04-2009, 10:53 PM
I have several different house mouse ones ready to finish..to post tomorrow....cause my great secret pal gave me a box of house mouse stamps! Whoo hoo!

Some are too big for ATCs, and I am considering a House Mouse chunky swap, so I can use those!

10-04-2009, 10:56 PM
Ok--off for a shower and nap before work!

There have been GREAT cards this weekend...hope I get to snag a few tomorrow!

10-04-2009, 11:37 PM
Yippe! Tamrantula - great cards!

Back a ways to Melissamyth's comment on ink. You may be using pigment ink. Some of them do take forever to air dry and some never do - they can be heat-set though with a heat gun. (Looks like a wierd hair dryer but gets super hot - some of them up to 700 degrees - a hair dryer wont work the same - not hot enough.) Dye inks dry faster and are a little more user friendly - don't need to be heat-set but they may not be water proof. (I used to teach stamping at Michaels and I may have notes on the different kinds of ink somewhere if you are interested.) Regardless - your cards are beautiful!

This has been another really fun weekend! Thanks again to everyone for their help and the great trades! I'll check in tomorrow to see what I missed while I slept. Night!

Just Ducky
10-04-2009, 11:56 PM
Kristin... put me on the I need to know list... I was really lost knowing what ink to use...
with my Mouse cards I used cat eye... but had to color with chalk...
my first sat cards with the wild animal I used staz-on... I can use markers on that I think
but it will stain the stamp... but that is all I know so far...

and nite gal...

I have some "in the midst" but am not going to get them done tonight. I'm too tired. Haven't been sleeping long... it's that full moon, I think... and my eyes are feeling like sandpaper. Good night all!

Lorraine, thanks so much for hosting us again. I had a blast! And thanks to all you lovely folks who've played this weekend, and those I've traded with. Let's do this again soon.

And a quick plug for upcoming a-thons. Zentangle-a-thon (http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/showthread.php?t=12286) next weekend (Oct 8-10)hosted by mrubyjean and Collage-a-thon Oct 16-18 hosted by HHC

10-05-2009, 02:30 AM
Thank you everyone for playing this weekend. And special thanks for our host Lorraine!

I have a over working holiday today and I'm continueing to make some cards. I'm not posting them in the thread but if I can make something, they will be in my gallery.

Gerry, for future reference, you can set a reminder on the calendar page if the a-thon is listed. http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/calendar.php. Click on the event and on the right side it has a request a reminder link to click. :)

Good morning, by the way! :D

10-05-2009, 01:53 PM
Thanks for hosting Chardonnay, this was so much fun :)

I'm not used to trading so many cards all at once. I sorted through my list, but I discovered that in my haste to make cards, a bunch had very ugly backs :twitcy: leave it to me to place a card on top of an ink spatter to dry . . . my workspace became such a mess. At least I was smart enough to protect the ATC side . . .

I will be glueing backs to them and letting them dry. The ones that are ready will go out today, the ones that need new backs will be mailed tomorrow :)

10-05-2009, 02:36 PM
Here are a few that are dry--got another 1/2 dozen or so that are drying and I am just trying to keep my eyes open that long! LOL

No pressure on anyone to trade....I just wanted to actually finish what I started after a frustrating weekend! I had plans to participate...and darn it if the universe was about to stop me! LOL
