Celebrate Art by Deborah


I’ve had Sam Poole’s fabulous Vintage Artist stamp set (Creative Expressions) for some time but never really made much use of it. Goodness knows why. Anyway I decided to make a triple ATC to celebrate making art.

First cut your ATC – 3.5 inches x 7.5 inches, scored and folded at 2.5 inch intervals. Use a bone folder for a good sharp crease. Choose a few of your favourite Distress Stains and splat them hard onto the card. You might have to go over them a second time to ensure a decent splat.

Then stamp the artist definition and other words straight onto the card using Jet Black Archival Ink. Stamp the palette, paint tubes and brushes onto a good stamping paper and colour with the Distress Stains using a small paintbrush. Glue to the ATC. Use the paint splodge stamps from the set and Distress Stains to over-stamp the background and also on the artist palettes.



  1. i adore this idea... am definitely going to poach the idea

  2. Wonderfully vibrant and I love the splats!!

  3. Wonderful composition, love the whole art work. The brilliant colors and all the elements.

  4. Terrific artwork, love this folded ATC

  5. And it looks even better in full. Fantastic piece. I love it!
