Default TCP Tuesday #201 ~ Inspiration

Are you ready for a fun and fresh spring-y inspiration piece? Check out what we have in store for you this week...I think you might like it! The inspiration pic and my project are attached.

Here are the details for this challenge:

1. Each Tuesday we will give you a challenge.
2. You will have until the end of the month to complete the challenge.
3. Add your entry to the guestbook on Alma's Blog and/or upload to the SCS Gallery, using the keyword TCPTUES201 for this week's challenge.
4. TCP stamps/dies are not required, but of course, highly encouraged. {Unless it is a challenge calling for a specific stamp/die)
5. There will be one randomly chosen weekly winner, announced on Tuesdays.
6. There will be one winner, The Swanky Stamper, announced the 1st of each month. They will win several sets from an upcoming release and get to play along with us at our Pajama Party and Blog Hop.

Maybe we should have another ATC swap with a due date in May?

That way we can all get our new goodies (I hear straight from Miss Meowy there will be Sprinkle and PJ). I bet that you would have a lot of fun if we decided to give it a go!

Every once in a while I get a hankering to have an ATC swap (ATC = artist trading card). An ATC is only as big as 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 and you can get 10 atc's out of one sheet of card stock (for the base layer anyway). My goal when making an ATC is to have several layers, embellishments etc. all on this teeny tiny little canvas. I typically will host a TCP only ATC swap where the requirement is to use TCP stamps only and to embellish with all that other stuff that we love so much (ie twine, baling, glitter buttons dies crystal effects etc.).

Everyone makes 10 of the exact same ATC,' and then mails all 10 swaps to the hostess who then swaps the ATCs out and then mails everyone who participated 10 ATCs back. Different hostesses do things differently, but I always participate in my own swaps and I always make it so that you get one of your own back. The challenge is to contain your art inside a teeny tiny canvas!

Here's a link to my last swap (if you click on the paperclip you can see some of the ATCs that others posted that they made for the swap)

Here is the ATC that I made for my last swap. I think I have some of my other ATCs in my gallery.

Better yet Wendy....check out this link
If I did that correctly you'll see a Google image search for TCP and ATC. Many of these beauties have been made for some of my ATC swaps in the past. As you can tell, I love TCP and have a slight addiction to ATCs. Now instead of hijacking this thread, maybe I should get in my craft room and make something for Jen's wonderful challenge. LOL!

Here's my card for this week's inspiration challenge. I went with a birthday theme since I've had a few requests for them from friends and family.
