Scrapmatts - Cards, Tags & ATC's

Hi Girls,
This month at Scrapmatts it's all about cards, tags and ATC's.  This is a bit of a long post as I have quite a few projects to share with you.  I received a parcel full of  the fantastic new chippies and have used the gorgeous Wicker Chairs, Table Lamps and Cupids on my cards.  Click HERE to see all the stunning new chippies Andrew and Sophie have designed... they have some beautiful new printers trays that you won't be able to resist!!

The theme for this month's challenge at Scrapmatts is super simple... make a card, atc or tag using Scrapmatts chipboard... so give it a go for a chance to win a voucher to spend at Scrapmatts.

Shabby/Chic Cards
Was inspired by the new chippies to go shabby/chic and created 3 cards using the Table Lamps 01 CB1171, Ornate Frame 08 CB6010 and Heart Spray 01 CB1109 on the Mother card.  I backed the lamp in pp, left the frame raw (mist white) and accented with green ink and inked the heart spray in green.
Used the Wicker Chairs 01 CB1169,  which I left raw (mist white) on the 2nd card, and Table Lamps 03 CB1172 which I lightly accented in pink and green chalk in on the 3rd card.

Materials List:  Scrapmatts Table Lamps 01 CB1171, Ornate Frame 08 CB6010, Heart Spray 01 CB1109 chipboard, Prima, Crate Paper pp's, Prima flower, Craft Queen paper blossoms, Websters fabric tags, Versamagic chalk ink

Materials List:  Scrapmatts Table Lamps 03 CB1172 chipboard, Scrapcake  and MME pp's, Prima notecard, Carolees tiny alpha stickers, Kaisercraft pearls, Versamagic chalk ink

I don't make ATC's very often and really enjoyed creating these by using the Brackets 01 ATC10-010 for my base and then fussy cutting some pretty birds and accenting the greenery with the Flowers 06 CB1026, Flowers 09 CB1145 Flowers 11 CB1161.  I painted the flowers, highlighted them with ink and then used some metal bead caps for the flower centres.
