Sticker-Slapped Artist Trading Cards (ATC)

I hadn’t done an ATC in a long, long time, so when I saw the “Sticker-Slapped ATC” swap last month, I took advantage of an opportunity to do an ATC without the pressure of impressing the receiver.

The object of the swap was to use at least six stickers on the ATC.  I guess, this was sort of an unspoken “response” to those swap coordinators who caution “no sticker-slapping” or who allow only one sticker on an ATC.  It was also an opportunity for swappers to use loose, unwanted or miscellaneous stickers.

Here’s what my partner sent me.

Now, that’s “sticker-slapped!” Some of the stickers come off easily, so I have plans for the ballerina teddy and the butterfly stickers. I don’t think the ATC will miss them. 🙂

I fretted over my own ATC much longer than I should have.  I wanted my partner to open up her envelope and find the required “sticker-slapped” ATC but also something visually appealing.  I used a few of my favorite things; a 2.5 x 3.5 inch cut of scrapbook paper, nine stickers, bling, and a coating of sparkle Mod Podge later, I ended up with this:

"Life, Love, and Laughter"

“Life, Love, and Laughter

I actually liked it, and the receiver described it as, “beautiful.”  Go figure.  😉
