October Inspiration - Layout and ATC Cards
By Mary Catt

''Special Days''

Hello 2crafty fans!

Mary here with you today and I have to share with you all, a special
 romantic layout and some ATC Cards I made for the very first time. 

 Well, lets get started with the layout... I used the ''Dreamy'' paper from
 7dots ''Homegrown'' collection and lots of Prima flowers.

I also have prepared a VIDEO TUTORIAL for you...

I based my layout on October challenges over at 7dots studio and
at More Than Words challenge blog.  

2Crafty Chipboards used on this project...
Corner Swirly Heart Set
Flourish Adornment Set 4
Special Days

Some close ups...

I used white gesso on my dark background paper to highlighted it and then
 I used ''Silent Night Silver'' and  ''Midnight Rendervous Raven'' Lindy's mist with
a few splatters of ''White'' 13arts Splash ink to give it a little interest. 

I heat embossed the two ''Flourish Adornment'' pieces with
''Obviously Black'' Lindy's Stamp Gang embossing powder.

The ''Corner Swirly Heart'' and the ''Special Days'' title was also
 heat embossed with ''Queen Sheba's Silver'' powder. 

''Enjoy - Celebrate'' (Life) - ATC Cards

My second project is these four ATC Cards made with several small chippies
and Lindy's Stamp Gang mists and embossing powders.

You can see the procedure on my VIDEO...

2Crafty Chipboards used...
Interlocking Grid Panel
ATC Tiny Hearts & Stars
Steampunk Gears Small
Key Set Mini's 

I based my cards on the three following challenges...
7dots Studio, Lindy's Stamp Gang and

And a closer look...

I made the background with a white cardstock colored with various Lindy's mists.
I also made a little emboss on a script stamp with ''Queen Sheba's Silver'' embossing powder.

Then, I heat embossed the ''Interlocking Grid Panel'', the key and the
 lock from the ''Key Set Mini's'', the small gears  & some ''Tiny Hearts and Butterfly''.

And last but not at least I want to share a layout I made as a Guest Designer
over at C.S.I. blog, which is being sponsored by 2crafty chipboard.
Naturally I have used some lovely 2Crafty chipboards here also.

''Case file 215''

''Believe in Your Dreams''

 Well, that's all for today...
See again next month!

Thank you so much for stopping by!!!
