bluelotusflower
06-03-2010, 11:17 PM
I've heard of PRESSED DUCK but never a stamped Duck. This swap should be interesting! :yes:

I'll get to play!!! yippee! two of my granddaughters will be playing with me on Saturday (I haven't seen them since last fall!) ... so they can make a mess and I can make ATCs ... I've got a huge roll of red rosin paper and am going to get out my cheap acryllic paints ... I thought I'd have them lay down on the paper and I'll trace around them with a marker, then they can paint their self portraits! For a 5 year old and a 2 year old, that should be messy FUN!

Linda4atc
06-04-2010, 01:18 AM
LOL you should get someone to trace you and let them paint grandma!

Wonderful cards, Lorraine! :)

WeŽll see if IŽll be able to play this weekend. The weather here is GREAT, which makes me want to stay outside and weŽre having company on Sunday. So much to do ...

Evil Seedlet
06-04-2010, 11:40 AM
Those cards are awesome char!

I have a question, too, does stamping with paint count? I think I have some great stuff I can stamp with, but some of it would only really work if I brushed some paint onto them to stamp. Or does to have to be ink? (no biggie)

KESagers
06-04-2010, 11:43 AM
what time is it on the East coast????


When I first checked in it was almost 6am but after I get everyone breakfast and my hubby off to work I go back to bed for a nap. I need a little more sleep than the average bear.

I think I figured that I am 13 hours behind you.

In all of my reading about stamping paint has always been a legitimate medium but some paint can stain your stamp permanently if you don't get it off immediately - like PearlEx. Water based Acrylic will not stain and is very easy to use, economical and comes in endless colors and color combinations.

KESagers
06-04-2010, 11:50 AM
I have about 12 minutes left so I'm going to go fix some tea, cut some background and then it should be time.

I agree with everyone - Chardonnay - your first cards are fab!

Evil Seedlet
06-04-2010, 11:51 AM
Thanks! :) For my regular stamps I'll either only use ink or have some water on stand by for cleaning as SOON as I've stamped, that seems to have worked before. And for other non-regular stamp objects I'm either using things that can be thrown away or easily cleaned of acrylics (like hard smooth things I can scrape it off of). That helped a lot! thanks for the info!

sniisk
06-04-2010, 12:29 PM
I've started creating but I don't know if I will like any of my cards. This doesn't work even if I want it to work. :skeptical:

Cat's Cradle
06-04-2010, 12:38 PM
We've got to eat lunch, then I'm going to start stamping and embossing. :) It's after 12, just needed to get some yard work done before play time!

KESagers
06-04-2010, 12:51 PM
Sniisk - I promise you - if you don't like it someone else is going to love it!

Can't wait to see Catscradle!

Here is a technique I've always wanted to try. This is a masterboard I just created.

http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/images/768/medium/1_birds-of-a-feather-w.jpg

It's a sheet of cardstock and I've stamped images all over it. The idea is to scan the masterboard and create digital prints to use over and over again. I have scanned it for future use but since this is a stamp-a-thon and not a print-a-thon I am going to cut up my original. Now to see what I can create from it.

Lovely cards, Char! Hope to get some time in this weekend though my BF is in. At least at home, I have access to all my supplies.

ginabee
06-04-2010, 01:25 PM
Beautiful, Char! Love your idea, KESagers, and the background stamping.

beeps
06-04-2010, 01:29 PM
i have only a few stamps but since i just need to include some stamping i better get on this! it will be a challenge :)

Evil Seedlet
06-04-2010, 01:46 PM
My first card! The scan doesn't do it justice. Mixed media with paper, paint, ink and a cut out. The stamped part was the criss-crosses in the sky, made by stamping a piece of mesh material covered with white paint. You can't tell from the scan but there is a faint copper shimmer to the sky when tilted in the light.

Meteor Shower: Traded
http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/images/5124/medium/1_meteor_shower.jpg

Like with the FPAT I don't have many stamps yet, so if you want to trade I might not be able to send out right away but I will hold for you.

ginabee
06-04-2010, 01:47 PM
I have many stamps...my weakness. It's after 12 noon, here.

Seedlet - that was exactly what I was talking about - using found items. Great card!

Ginabee - a great start. You are temping me with your kitty but I don't have anything yet to trade anyone.:arghh:

Lol, thanks KESagers!

Aww, Sniiski, so cute! Beautifully done....

Theresagram
06-04-2010, 02:59 PM
My 'problem' is I have over 2,600 stamps and never know just where to start!!

That doesn't include 2 big bags of stamps I don't want and need to get rid of. Most of them are too cutesy for me or stuff I've already got or just can't use.

You gals who don't have enough stamps.....what kinds of images are you in need of? :wideeyed:

Evil Seedlet
06-04-2010, 03:04 PM
The kind of stamps I would most want are background and decorative stamps.. like subtle textures and texts, and maybe corner/frame types, flourishes, abstracts, etc (anything that could be used again and again and not just recreate variations on the same card). Anything with realistic angels or realistic bugs would be great too. >_> Will trade for personalized art.

Evil Seedlet
06-04-2010, 03:10 PM
Wow, this is a lot easier than I thought! lol

A hand painted card. The foot part was made by painting the side of my fist and stamping, then using paint on my fingertips for the toes. So it's literally hand painted! A little pen for the heart's outline:

I have a fair amount of stamps but where I've really gone crazy is with the clear stamps. Bothe the bigger kits and the little dollar bin sets. I probably have a hundred of those by now.

I only have around 300 of the clear stamps. But only because I am not crazy about the image you get with clear. I don't think it's as sharp as with rubber. I like that you can see exactly where you're stamping, but I trim my rubber really, really close and mount them on EZ Mount so I can see pretty much where I'm stamping. Anyway, I have a tendancy to buy clear sets for 2-3 stamps that I like and then sometimes give the rest of the set away. I'm bad.


Here's my first atc. I used 5 stamps. Not sure I like how this one turned out though.

Ylou all have been busy ladies. Me I went to the Doctor for my knees today. So first i went to Pollock, SD and had it check. There they put a shot in one knee which is the one I hurt way back in April. Then I had to go to LInton and get an immoblizer for the other knee. How long I will be in it I won't find out until nest Wed. I had to get my husband to take me to Linton, because I didn't know if I would be able to get in the car and drive. What a day. I had started two card, but I don't know if I will get more made. It will be slow, because my computer is Upstairs and my craft stuff is down.
The art is saw was really great.

OMG! I'm sitting here at my computer scanning cards, and a hummingbird fledgling just perched on a little branch outside my window and sat there for nearly 5 minutes. I wondered if something was wrong with him because he was all fluffed out... my hubby determined it was a fledgling. I just love watching birds... lucky me!

KESagers, what is the water color spritz technique?

06-05-2010, 12:19 AM
HHC i was wondering the same thing and found this video: http://stamptv.ning.com/video/watercolor-spritz-1

not sure if it is the same... this looks a *bit* different. the site looks fun. now i want to get some markers for stampin' the stamps i have are two sets from martha i picked up (embossing kit and stamp beginer). i also have a few random clear peel'n'sticks from the dollar bin :)

i have one more card but i'm hitting the hay. it will post tomorrow! preview: think hand drawn woman with stamped background and flowers for hair!

06-05-2010, 12:32 AM
Haven't checked out the vid yet but here it is:

Color on a bold image stamp with water based markers (that's the key - they have to be water based) hold your stamp ink side up and spray it with a fine mist of water. Experiment to see how far away your stamp has to be from the bottle - it might end up being farther than you think - and stamp away.:D

Playing with Alcohol Inks and stamping this morning..not having a lot of luck. Here are 3 works in progress..will try and save them later..going out for lunch.

The first and third are photographs with alcohol ink on top and then stamped. The stamping (Stazon) isn't covering completely.
The middle one is alcohol ink on a glossy cardstock...also stamp is not covering (Stazon).

I have some paper by Ranger...will try that next. I don't have any control of the AI and they're drying so fast. I guess I just need a lot more practice.

Will stop at my Stamp and Scrap shop after lunch...just in case there's something I NEED.

When the cards come or ITrader sent, I check it off my list.

Hey, I got a tip about scanning during a class. If you will put a sheet of clear plastic on your scanner bed and then lay your card on top of that, it will pick up more of the color pencil and other details that it wouldn't before. I do have to auto adjust the levels on the image, but it really looks a lot better. I used a sheet of plastic that came from an cheap old poster frame and then I cut it down to size.

06-05-2010, 06:48 PM
The plastic sleeve isn't thick enough, but it probably would help some. Before I found my sheet of clear plastic I used 3 sheets of transparency film that they used to use at school for the overhead projectors. 3 seemed to work just right, but it does come out kinda dark - adjust your levels and brightness and they look great - even color pencil in the backgrounds will show up. It is amazing. My sheet of plastic just stays in my scanner/copier/printer now. Someone came over and went to copy something and needless to say they were a bit confused :confused:

A guy meets a hooker in a bar. She says, “This is your lucky night. I’ve got a special game for you. I’ll do absolutely anything you want for $300, as long as you can say it in three words.” The guy replies, “Hey, why not?” He pull his wallet out of his pocket, and one at a time lays three hundred-dollar bills on the bar, and says, slowly: “Paint…my…house.”
