Isah Mae's ATCs

Isah Mae says, KAYA!

ATCs are very useful and they are so cute!!! My cards show the two well known symbols of Christmas... (Christmas Tree and Gift). I really enjoyed doing this challenge because doing a personalized thing or craft is a fun activity!!!

Ching's ATCs

Ching says, KAYA!

Ever since I joined the scrap booking challenges, I have wanted to make an ATC. This is my first effort. I am grateful to Marian for initiating this challenge.

I had fun playing with my Cricut die-cut machine. I made various shapes with different sizes. I applied glitter glue, attached rhinestones and brads, and embossed them. I then, adhered them into embossed and distressed 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 cards.

Materials Used:
Cricut-Joys of the Season, The Paper Company stock cards, Versa Mark stamp pad, Stampendous embossing powder (Gold, Opaque, Clear), Glitter Glue (Red & Green), Rhinestones, MM brads, Wood stamps, Clear stamps, Craft dyed-based ink pad (Black & Red), Archival ink (Sepia), Embossing heating tool.

Nina's cardboard ATCs

Nina says, KAYA!

My profuse apologies for not being able to join the KAYA! challenges for a looong while. Please know that I've always followed the challenges and have just been so amazed at the talent of Pinay scrappers. Thanks so much for the inspiration this month, Marian, that forced to me actually make it to the last challenge of the year.
Happy holidays, Pinoy scrapbookers!

Green Color Kit - Gauche Alchemy; stickers - Making Memories; adhesive - gel medium, Ranger Glossy Accents; embossing powder - Ranger; others - acrylic paint, pizza box my order from GA came in, pearl beads from a chain from an old GA kit.
Techniques used:
I've been playing around with cardboard lately and I realized that they'd make a fun background for ATCs. I also cut out Christmas-themed shapes from them and embossed them with gold embossing powder. I originally painted the corrugated part of the cardboard but it turned out to be purple smooshy mess. Thank goodness I turned them over and found this funky splattered paint background which you see here.
About me:
Scrapbookers, stamper and altered artist trying desperately to catch up to what's left of the year and homeschooling.

Marian's ATCs

Marian says KAYA!

I started out as a stamper making cards before I moved on to scrapbooking. My ATCs incorporate simple stamping in the design. As you can see most of my designs are very simple which is how I like my cards and LOs. I will be using these ATCs as tags for my gifts this Christmas.

Materials: Various paper and cardstock from my stash of scraps; stamps - Stampin' Up, Hero Arts and Hampton Arts, Penny Black; Ink - Ranger Archival Ink, Tsukineko Brilliance; Embossing powder; Mists - Radiant Rain and Glimmer Mist; Twinkling Waters paint; stickers and bling from my stash.

Techniques: stamping, painting, misting, heat embossing, layering

Kaya 31 - Get Ready For Christmas

I have always been a last minute shopper. I always say I'll do the shopping and gift wrapping early but I never get to do it. By the time December comes I still have many unchecked names on my gift list. Besides that, I like to wrap the packages and tag them with a handmade card. Sometimes on Christmas Eve I'm still rushing to get my gifts under the tree. This challenge will help me and you to get a head start on the things we need to do for Christmas.

The Challenge : I would like you to make Christmas Themed Artist Trading Cards (ATC) which can be used as a gift (they are after all mini works of art) or as a tag for a gift. An ATC is a card measuring 2 1/2 inches by 3 1/2 inches. You may use any material and/or technique to embellish the card. Your embellishments may extend over the ATC but the card base size should still be maintained. Please submit a minimum of 2 ATCs to be eligible in the drawing for a RAK. This is a great way to use up all your little scraps of paper and embellishments.

The RAK consists of several sheets of Christmas themed paper, Maya Road sheer journalling tags, Tim Holtz journalling tickets, several sheets of Prima Note journalling paper and 2 sets of mini Christmas stamps from Hampton Arts.

Kaya 31 will run from today November 14 - December 20, 2009. Please submit your entries on or before 11:59 pm on December 20. The challenge run has been changed just for this month to adjust for our busy schedules this holiday season.

As an incentive for you to make more ATC's Lee has an extra RAK (she will post her RAK soon) for the person who submits the most number of entries above 8 ATCs.
