Things With Wings - ATCs by Bibi


Hello everyone! Just recently I did two things that I rarely do: I joined a swap AND I made ATCs! 

The reason why I don't make ATCs very often is that the size is so small - I'm just not used to creating anything of that size (635 mm x 890 mm /3.5 x 2.5 inches). But - I do love a good challenge, so I scratched my head for a couple of weeks ... and once I got going it was quite fun!

The theme was "Things With Wings" and we had to make three different ATCs. Here are mine, all made with stamps from my own company.






Letter stamps from unknown ... (let me know if you know which company!)
I really like those, so I guess I could make something similar - perhaps a bit bigger, though...

 I cut the wings out so they stand up:


For another swap (same hostess), I made this postcard
using stamps from Quietfire Design (calligraphy sentiment) and Cherry Pie Art Stamps:


Thanks for stopping by today!

Till next time, be good and ... remember to leave room in your garden for the faeries to dance, OK? What exactly would that mean to you? Let us know in the comments below
- I'd love to hear your thoughts!

 XOX,
Bibi

  5. Careful, Bibi...ATCs are very addictive! These are fabulous. Where are you trading?

    Space in my garden for faeries? I think they would love to shimmy under my big rhubarb leaves and when they vamoose, they are welcome to dance under my large ferns. :)

  6. Wow - these are really wonderful Bibi. What neat things with wings!! Totally made me laugh - take your nosewings and fly!!! Love that one just because it's unique!! And the colors are gorgeous too. I have made one ATC Bibi and it was fun once I finally got started but I have almost lost it twice now - eheheheh!!! Your fairies are soooo sweet. You know... somehow I never read about fairies when I was young... and have never been a fairy or even princess type gal. I have some hanging baskets - I guess they might be able to come "swing" awhile if sitting in them on a windy day!!! That's about as far as my imagination for fairy gardens go!!! Hugs. j.

  7. Stunning Bibi!! You need to make ATC's more often. They each have such a different feel to them! From the vintage to the nosewings ... just amazing :) Love your compositions. -- Mary Elizabeth

  8. Hi Bibi, I am feeling very ATC at the moment and these are so beautiful. Such different styles. Plenty room for everyone to dance in the garden this year due to a total lack of anything. OK, the weeds are doing well. It's been a difficult year for vegetables so the fairies would be very welcome. Haven't swapped any ATC's for ages...... Hugz

  9. Oh yes, Bibi! These ATS's of yours were absolutely fantastic. I especially enjoyed the nosewings and the faeries. I have plenty of room in the garden for the faeries to dance :) Just the thought that they are dancing in my garden makes me happy :D Thank you for sharing happiness, Bibi <3
    You are a great inspiration!

  10. Lovely ATC's, you're doing them like a pro... I have some space for faeries in my garden, like the overgrown grass (mostly weeds) and wild flowers (also weeds)....

  11. Thank you so much for your comments and kind words, everyone! ♥
    I do read them all (of course!) and I really appreciate it!! :-)))

    It's interesting to see that everyone takes the faeries quote literally... myabe I don't since I don't have a garden as such (I have huge deck with pots and boxes filled with flowers). When I first saw that stamp by Quietfire, I interpreted it to mean that I should make place for fun and play in my life - in-between work and other obligations. But of course, if there is such a thing as faeries I'd love for them to play and dance in my flower pots, too! :-)

    Thanks again, all you lovely people!
