Sending Sweet Sentiments with ATCs

Maiko Miwa Graphic45 Sweet Sentiments ATC #1

Good day, G45ers!

It's a beautiful day for some Spring Artist Trading Card inspiration. We have two projects and one tutorial that will simply delight! Also, we have a sneak peek of the fun going on over at the Paper Crafter's Library blog. First, we have a beautiful ATC by Maiko Miwa and then a great ATC tutorial by Nichola Battilana.

First, let's begin with Maiko's whimsical ATC using Sweet Sentiments. It's just perfect for Spring and a great creation to give away or keep around your home!

White Staples ATC Tag

May Arts Ribbon
Textured Elements from Petaloo


1. Gather all of your materials. I like to fussy cut a whole bunch of elements to choose from and always more than I think I’ll need. Here I’ve used Sweet Sentiments All My Love on an ATC staples tag for the base.


2. Next I start to layer elements like the “Spring” tag from Sweet Sentiments Chipboard and Sweet Sentiments Tags & Pockets.


3. Using foam dots, I create depth to my fussy cut pieces. This rabbit but from Sweet Sentiments will be the focal point of this ATC tag.


4. Slowly, I build up my design, filling out the space.


5. The layers of fussy cut flowers add visual interest and dimension.


6. With all of those little pieces now in place, I create texture by adding petals from a Textured Elements flower from Petaloo.


7. Now some coordinating May Arts Ribbon.


8. And finally some little butterflies cut from Heart Song to finish off the piece.
