Trash Polka ATC

The theme for 9ATC Group is Trash Polka
I stamped the "D" collage image with Blacke India Ink
Stamped the butterfly, stars and "freedom" with red Archival ink and used the same red to made a rough red edge around the ATC.

Sympathy Card

For Stamp Club we were to make Sympathy Cards.
I embossed the top 3/4 of light purple card stock with an embossing folder. Stamped saying with apurple ink. Tied a purple ribbon around the card stock and layered it onto a slightly darker purple card.

Cut edged Card

For Stamp Club, we were to make cards using dies, embossing folders, pop-us, folds and/or shapes.  
Stamped a piece of green card stock with a Thinking of You stamp in red ink, then ran it through a dotted embossing folder. Next, cut the  bottom edge off of the card with a fancy shaped die. Used same red ink to color the edges of the card. Adhered a striped paper under the cut edge of the card and used this same paper to punch out a butterfly to add to the card.

Lace ATC

Lace is the theme for 9ATC Group.
Stamped french script onto brown card stock with black India Ink. Used a flourish embossing folder then inked the raised areas with a green Distress ink. Used the same green ink to stamp the word "thrive" onto buff card stock. Edged the word piece and the atc with gold metallic ink. Made a flower out of two types of lace and adhered to the atc and added a metal embellishment in the center of the flower.

The theme for 9ATC Group is 2. We were to use two of anything and the numeral 2.
I used two papers, two dragonfly embellishments and two "pearls".
Cut out some decorative floral paper and inked the edges with a green Distress ink, used the same ink to stamp the large 2 on the decorative paper. Layered this onto dark green card stock. Punched out two dragonflies from a red paper and colored the antennae, body and edges green. Adhered the dragonflies to the card, then applied liquid glass to the wings and let it dry. Added two "pearls" to the upper right corner.

Iris Folding ATC

 The theme of 9ATC Group is Iris Folding. I found a "wave" pattern to use for my Iris Folding and placed an ATC sized frame over the part of the pattern I wanted to use.
 Instead of folding 1" paper strips (as in the traditional Iris Folding), I tore 4 blue papers in half lengthwise and started adhering it to the back of the frame.
 How my "Iris Folding" turned out.

Added 3 shells and 2 beads to the bottom of the frame:
