So Much To Share Part 3 of 4

So I told you I would share my cards, ATCs, and altered items I have been doing.
Lets start with the cards.
AMR Card Challenge-2/28: No Sticky Stuff, meaning no adhesive.
I used Bazzill cs, American Crafts Celebration pp, Technique Tuesday stamps, office supply star brads, and embroidery floss. No glue was used in the making of this card, lol!
AMR Card Challenge-3/14: Shoebox Challenge. The idea here was to put supplies in a shoebox and then use only those supplies to make a card. Of course I forgot to put in punches, buttons, and flowers. The trimmer was the only thing allowed to not go into the box.
I ended up making 3 cards...
Hugs & Kisses: Bazzill cardstock, BG Eva pp, misc ribbon (sei?), and Inkadinkado stamps.
Baby: Bazzill cs, BG Two Scoops pp, Inkadinkado stamps.
Thinking of You: Bazzill cs, October Afternoon pp, Stickles, and brads.
I am hosting another card swap at AMR, this time for Easter. The chick, egg, chocolate bunny and grass are all Silhouette designs. All the pieces are Stickles in some way, the sentiment is stamped with Technique Tuesday Savannah alpha stamps, and the card base is 3 different colors of ink applied with the Tim Holtz/Ranger application tool (can't remember it official name).
AMR Card Challenge-3/21: Bonus Challenge Using Sketch
I used 4 different Bazzill cs (one being Bling), BG Euphoria pp, Cosmo Cricket rubons, and a felt embellishment I made.
AMR Crop Card Challenge: No Straight Lines
I used Bazzill cs, traced and cut a BG Bracket Album, glued them together at the top, BG Archaic pp traced with a Jenni Bowlin journaling sheet, some Prima flowers, buttons, Stickles, Kaiser Craft pearls, and Technique Tuesday Stamps.
I used Bazzill cs, Silhouette scalloped frame, which I edited, copied and welded together and folded in half. Critters and such are Sassafras Lass, the stamp is Studio G, and it is colored in with SU Blender Pens. .
Now for some ATCs
This was for a Scrap Chat Hour (SCH) at AMR. There is usually a swap associated with the theme of the SCH. This one was made for a non-themed swap, free choice. I totally designed this cupcake on the Silhouette, and I loved how it turned out. There are slits in the cupcake "cup", but it didn't show on the pp. I used BG Two Scoops pp, BG Blush scraps for the cherry, Sakura Star Dust pen, and some Stickles. I believe the background pp is MME, but it is so old I don't know for sure, lol!
Another SCH swap, this one about pets. I used DCWV glitter cs, Bazzill cs, BG Granola pp, misc ribbon, and the green pp is unknown. I used a Nestability for the scalloped circle, and Quickutz dies for the kitties.Another SCH swap, this theme was your favorite SB product/technique. I chose Basic Grey and Stickles, of course! The pp is BG Urban Prairie, the stamps are Studio G, and then the Stickles.
I am hosting an Easter ATC swap at AMR. This is the one I did. I used MM Garden Party pp, Studio G stamps, SU ink and blender pen, and Stickles.
Now for some altered items.
I made some felt embellishments using my Cuttlebug dies and felt! I added buttons and layered the felt, stitched together, and you have some really cool, handmade embellies! You just use the die like normal, but replacing the felt with paper. Be sure to use some cardstock in there, it really helps the felt cut much cleaner. I have tried Sizzlets dies, and they don't work so well, but Nestabilities work good too!
In case you are interested, here is the sandwich recipe for the Cuttlebug, top to bottom...

I am doing a swap at AMR making rolodex cards! After MANY failed attempts, I finally got a rolodex card to scan well enough to get a good outline on the Silhouette! So I cut the SU Bella Rose pp for the front, SU Pink Pirouette cs for the back, used my CB to cut some more SU Bella Rose pp into flowers which I rolled up to make them a little distressed and to give some dimension, added a few brads, a photo, and on the back has my address, email, b-day, etc.
I had NO challenges to work on today (Monday), so I got out all the Halloween Deco Squares I recieved from a swap on AMR, and bound them together in this mini book. I used Target Dollar Spot letters, and it did not have numbers, so I used roman numerals for 2008.
Tomorrow I will share the scrappy mail I have been receiving!
