Welcome to the Stampin’ Up! Gallery of Artist Trading Cards from my January 2020 ATC Swap – Birthday Theme.

Oh my, what beautiful ATCs. I can’t wait to show you. They came from Virginia, California, North Carolina, Georgia, Vermont and Illinois. We open the gallery today with 3 beautiful designs that I know you will want to CASE (Copy and Selectively Edit). After each ATC I have listed the products used to help you with supplies. At the end of this post, I will list the cardstock, inks and other items that you may need. 

And now without further fanfare, I present to you a Gallery of Stampin’ Up! Artist Trading Cards – Birthday Theme. I highly recommend using use the ‘Price is Right’ voice while reading these because it is so much fun!

This multi-dimensional ATC is sure to please any birthday boy or girl. Notice how she fussy cut the Tucan and the balloons? The metallic baker’s twine and the patterned sequins are available FREE during Sale-a-bration. This is an excellent example of minimal stamping. Only the trendy sentiment from the Label Me Bold stamp set is stamped.

An elegant birthday cake on a gold pedestal. The cake is stamped and layered using the Piece of Cake stamp set and Cake Builder punch. A little Parisian flare from the Designer Series Paper background. The attention to detail on the cake flowers and the perfectly tied double bow using the sheer linen Mint Macaron ribbon sets this card on the scale of excellence.

This sweet little cat is hiding in the flower bed. This is a wonderful example of ‘Eclipse’ work. She used the combination of the sentiment from Beautiful You and the floral field stamp from Wood Words (retired) stamp set. After creating the scene and layering it on Night of Navy background, she cut out the focal image using the Cat Punch. Then layered it back into the same opening using Dimensionals. A perfect card for the cat fancier on your birthday list.
