ATC Swap


I decided to jump back into stamping this month by participating in the ATC swap hosted by Nikki Woodward on the Stampotique facebook page.

I of course grabbed some of my favorite go-to stamps from Stampotique and went to work.  It's been awhile since I've created something that small, but I had fun and that's what matters.

For the bee, I stamped it twice on white cardstock, cut out one and just the body of the other.  I think stamped it on vellum and cut the wings out so that they would pop from the body a bit.  I embellished it with a sentiment I typed on my label maker and then adhered with a candy dot.

The cute little envelopes were in my stash and fit the ATC perfectly-thought the Barcode was perfect for it.

Thanks for stopping over and checking out my ATC and maybe you'll join Nikki's swap if you have some Stampotique stamps.
