summer, autumn, and winter ATCs

Over the summer and fall I have made a few ATCs and as usual…I am behind on sharing pics!  They were all made for swaps with local friends.  To save time, I am just going to share them all at once!

The first two ATCs were for a summer swap with specific assigned colors.  These went together in a frame like the one I posted HERE.

This one uses the pretty SU! Butterfly Basics set…

The second summer one uses the Taylored Expressions Adventure Land set…

The Autumn ATC was also made to a specific color scheme and went into a frame.  This uses the Sweet ‘n Sassy Autumn Leaves and Falling Leaves sets.  Some leaves were stamped on the cardstock and a few were stamped on an acetate overlay.

And last is my winter ATC.  This is very CAS but I LOVE the concept.  Here I used stamps from my Sweet ‘n Sassy Snowman Soup (brrr) and Snowy Hello (snowflake) sets.

life is like a rollercoaster

So true, isn’t it?  I have a FUN card today for this month’s Ribbon Carousel challenge…Summer Fun!

I knew that I would have lots of stamps to choose from for the theme this month.  When it was time to create, I glanced around and spied this super cute set by Taylored Expressions which I had to have…but have yet to use.  We try to get to an amusement park each summer because my family loves to ride the coasters…and I love to watch them.  😉  So this set was extra fun to create with.

Here’s a close up.  The orange ribbon was wrapped around and attached underneath the main image…no bows to reduce the bulkiness that a grosgrain ribbon bow can make.

And the inside…

Come play along for a chance to win!
