Guest Designer Tammy Tutterow - Love you/ Fill your paper/ Art

Hello everyone! Tammy Tutterow here with you today with another guest post for Quietfire Design.

Tammy Tutterow | ATC Trio for Quietfire Designs

Today I have a trio of ATCs to share with you that feature stamps from Quietfire Design.

For each ATC I started with a Ranger Ink manilla ATC. For this ATC I applied Broken China Distress Ink around the edges. I left the center uninked so that it would be a highlight behind the die cut text. I added Vintage Photo Distress Ink around the edges of the card. To embellish the card I layered different elements (Flourishing Inside and I Write You Letters) that I stamped on manila cardstock and cut out with a die cut text from Quietfire's Silhouette collection. After layering the elements, I stamped the word always using some small individual letter stamps from my stamp stash.

For the second card, I again used the Flourishing Inside set (I love hearts!). I placed it on a manila ATC that I inked with Broken China, Peeled Paint, and Vintage Photo Distress Inks. I misted the surface with Biscotti Perfect Pearls mist to add shimmer. After misting, I placed a stencil on the card and inked through it to add some design to about 2/3 of the card. I stamped the sentiment (Fill Your Paper) on vellum using Ranger Potting Soil archival ink. I adhered the vellum to my card using machine stitching. I added a piece of trim and curled and tore the edges of the vellum for added texture.

My third ATC is my favorite of the three. It is so simple, but I think that lets the beauty of the sentiment (Art is Letting Your Fingers) really be the focus. I created the background by scribbling several colors of Distress Ink on my craft sheet and misting them with water. I dipped the card into the wet inks and dried it with a heat tool. I dipped it again and dried it again. I kept dipping and drying until I was happy with the look. I then applied Vintage Photo Distress Ink to the edges. I skimmed Brushed Pewter Distress Stain on the edges of the card as well to add a bit of shine. I again used one of the Flourishing Inside hearts that I stamped and cut out. I stamped the sentiment on a strip of vellum and layered it over the card and sewed it in place. I stamped and cut out a feather from the I Write You Letters set on top of the vellum next to the sentiment. It had been a while since I had made an ATC and this little trio reminded me of how fun it was to make little bits of mini art. I love the way they work together to create a set but also are great individually. I hope each one inspires you to make a little mini art today!
