Four artist trading cards  vintage hollywood  graphic 45  Alexandra Morein Cover

ATC series - Vintage Hollywood 
By Alexandra Morein

"I have been recently creating quite a lot of the Artist Trading Cards and I think I will never be tired or bored with them. This is a true obsession once you begin. On the limited space you can still arrange as many details as you want.

Graphic 45 papers have always been known for their outstanding variety of characters and the richness of characters, so cutting them out for the ATCs is just perfect.

Today I would like to share 4 of my ATCs, which were created with the “Vintage Hollywood” collection. At one of the pictures below you can see an example of the little size of the cut out flowers which I used, as well as how many pieces (more or less) each one of the cards includes.

Take your favorite Graphic 45 papers out and start to create!!" ~Alexandra Morein

Curio Cabinet 1 Clare Charvill Graphic 45

The Curio Cabinet of Curiosities 
by Clare Charvill
 
"I designed my new Curio Cabinet kit around a cabinet my Grandma kept her antique china in.  Standing just over 13" tall and 4 deep it has full length doors, shaped pediment, shelves and a boxed back that opens. It could be decorated in any style, maybe as a jewelery box but I've used my go to favourite colours red, black and cream from the Olde Curiosity shoppe Collection to alter my sample and then fussy cut out a bunch of the fabulous curios from various 12 x 12 papers to add into the cabinet front. The boxed raised and recessed areas were made from card and added as extras to give some dimension to the space above and below the shelves." ~Clare Charvill
