Our 5th SAT 3rd-5th April 2009

Starts 5pm Friday 3rd April(where ever you are in the world when it is 5pm Friday)
Ends Midnight Sunday 5th April(where ever you are in the world when it is Midnight Sunday)

Each card must have stamping on it....whether it is the background or main Feature..
You can embellish, paint, collage..whatever your little heart desires..any theme..just create and have fun......
here are some samples...not for trading in this SAT

post pics in the thread ..so we can all enjoy your wonderful art..trade as you go or at the end if you wish....just have fun....

Friday's challenge will be to use one stamp

Sat's Challenges....No.1.....make cards using Seekingforart's melted crayon tech as the background
No.2...make cards using only stamps although you can use paints, pencils etc to colour the images...you could even maybe 3-D the image....

sunday's challenges... No.1..make cards with embellishments...ie. ribbons, fibres, brads, bling etc...
No.2....animal ATC's

but these are just challenges you don't have to do them if you do not wish to..just come along and have fun....

Here's the link for a tutorial by Seekingforart's melted crayon tech
added here with the Kind permission of Martha..:D

Have enjoyed all the cards you folks have been posting. I will probably participate more later in the weekend. Had a seminar to attend today that began early so I will probably get to bed early tonight and then I have a Cuttlebug class tomorrow. I hope learn some cool new background techniques there. So I will probably post cards tomorrow night and Sunday-unless I have an insomnia attack later on that is!

I decided on a challenge for myself. :D I'm going to try and use as many of my stamps as I can!!!

I might also try a little bit of the using one stamp...see how many different looks I can give it.

But it will be fun for me to try and use as many of my stamps as I can. So I've got a number of binders within reach.*nodding* Me, too, T. I just got a whole bunch of great Fontwerks stamps for practically nothing on eBay and I am dying to use them so I will join you in being diverse. I will do some of the challenges, too, though. (Note to self - gonna be busy, busy! Yay!)

I got all of my errands and stuff done so (*knock wood*) as long as nothing unexpected comes up, I should be able to spend a lot of time here. But... and you guys are gonna love this - my 68 yr old mother's driver's license expired (in 2004 we found out! D'oh!) so she is required to take a driving test. So, I have to take her out to practice driving this weekend! How's that for an insane turning of the tables? All I can say is, oh-lord-give-me-patience. LOL :swoon:

OK - I'm gonna get started soon and then play all night. Great cards so far everyone. I can't wait to see what else we come up with!

Because of the transparency I had to take these pictures without the flash, and the colors are not right in the picture, the back ground is nice greens, with a little other colors as highlights, much much nicer then the picture.
watercolor background, stamped and painted butterflies, leaves stamped on transparency, and butterflies on top with popdots.
I can not at this time do international trades, sorry

Angel 1 has not got rainbow colours in the background, it is all Gold and copper with black embossed angel, the scanner picked up the other colours, though I might do a rainbow background one cos it looks pretty...

Hey T, love that quote. What stamp is that if you know? I may borrow the quote and stamp with alpha stamps, too, which would be just as easy I think. You don't mind, do you? (Remember - imitation is the sincerest form of flattery! :twitcy:)



Great to see so many great ATCs tonight - this morning? I get confused so I am not gonna even figure out the time zones. I just figure there will be people on 24/7 throughout the weekend.

OK - now I'm really going to get started. *blush* LOL

Hey Phinny!

The quote stamp is Stamp Oasis, I picked it up a few years ago at a stamp expo. The hour glass is Rubber Stamp Ave.

Sure you can use the quote, it's not my quote. :) You want me to stamp some out for you? I can open up the box with your alpha sets and stick them in. Lemme know.

Wow - you guys are amazing. Great cards everyone!

I got side-tracked last night so was only able to make some backgrounds. I'm gonna hit it hard today, though. I'll post a bunch by tonight at the latest.

One more cup of coffee, a shower and I will be ready to go...!



P.S. Theresa - no worries, doll. I am gonna stamp the quote with alpha stamps. I'll have to shoot you a link to show you all my new cool Fontwerks alpha stamps I got this week. I need an excuse to play with them. I go nuts over alphas. I'm sure I don't have as many as you all total, but I confess I'm a bit of a glutton for cool fonts and letters. Yum! :)

I think my way to Manchester (or Liverpool) to the UK artfest is shorter than your way to Indianapolis :). I need just 3 hours flight and both places (me and the artfest place) are near by the airport.

But now I'll continue with my stamping project.
