Spending My #Cre8time Making ATCs for the VLVS! March Challenge

Hello everyone! I've been taking it easy these days {except for the day J.O.B.} and I'm really enjoying taking workshops, going on crafty excursions and creating at my leisure for FUN. Today, rather yesterday - I started this ATC, but got craftily sidetracked doing something else before work {bling can do that sometimes LOL} - so I had to finish this today.

I used the March Inspiration board from Viva Las VegaStamps! along with some VLVS! stamps from my hoards of rubber stamps. I created a background by coloring with a couple of yellows and green Gelatos directly onto the harlequin diamond background #18920, spritzed with water and stamped onto blank white cardstock.

I stamped the bottle with top #10276 onto the side of the same paper using Jet Black Staz-On ink and hand-colored with markers, then fussy cut and tied a piece of green raffia around neck. The "Good Luck" #8142 is stamped onto a scrap of emerald green cardstock and mounted on a scrap of a recycled iced tea bottle label; that is repeated as a border trim behind the bottle. The four leaf clover is created with four hearts punched from a papershapers punch, rubbed with peeled paint distress stain and rubbed with antique olive dewdrop ink. The center of the shamrock is from the Tim Holtz Idea-ology Custom Fasteners Brads {a handy set that comes with two sizes of brads, stickers and the clear faux-resin toppers}. I added a sliver of the gold label for the stem accented with black marker and drew the rest of the stem into the bottle. Finished off with a rubbing of antique gold around the edges and this ATC is ready to display!



Happy Tuesday! :)  Sb


  1. Haven't been by in a while! I love how you created this ATC, the middle of the shamrock is so cute! Glad I popped by today :) xo

  2. Saw this on FB, but wanted to come check it out in person (so to speak!). This is fantastic and I absolutely love the timepiece!

  3. Lots of goodness on this baby :) Thanks for sharing @ VLVS!


I would love to hear your thoughts and comments...
