HOP + ATC cards

HOP + ATC cards

Hello everyone!! Welcome back to our blog, to our Hop.

Our Mixed Media Team is using our Brutus Monroe products to make an ATC!!! Many of the products can be found on

We hope that you find some inspiration in the projects our team put together.

To start this project hop along, BreAnn has created a project using our products to make ATCs:

For this project I started by cutting down some Raven Cardstock to ATC size. I used a stamp from So Emotional and Alabaster pigment ink. Next, I ran it through my sewing machine just for a little extra detail. To finish this off, I used the Feather stencil and Rasberry Glitter Glaze


Next up on our hop, Jeanne has used Brutus Monroe's products to make her ATCs:

ATC's are super fun to create. I decided to use a fun summer theme for mine.

First I cut 4 pcs of 2.5 X 3.5 of cardboard for my bases. I applied white gesso on them and then added on 3 of them the center part of the Brutus Monroe Stained Glass Die in which glitter paper was used for that. Also used torn design paper on those as well. I then added stickers and chipboard and Brutus Monroe Fabulous Fibers in both Peacock and Frosted Halo to embellish the ATCs. I then brushed on some Brutus Monroe Aqua Pigments in Pink and Pearl as well as splattered them using those same pigment inks with a little water . These are quick and fun to create and swap with crafty friends! 

Stay tuned for more ATCs using Brutus Monroe products!! 

xoxo, Jeanne

For our next inspirational post using stamp and stencils Jenn created her ATCs:

I used a few different techniques in creating these. I used the so emotional stamp and flutter stamp. I also cut smile from the keep calm and smile on stamp.
I stamped the butterflies onto backgrounds. I used neon pink chroma glaze through the chevron stencil on one and Key lime glitter glaze on another. For the blue and white I created the background using water and Turquoise aqua pigment, then stamped the butterflies. I added some Alabaster Pigment ink through the Kaleidoscope stencil and dried. I used the butterflies the best way I could. I let Michael know that the stamp has some spots that do not stamp.



This next project Nicole used our stamps and stencils to create her card:

I began this ATC using a piece of watercolor paper. I added Aqua Pigments in Violet and Pink to the background to create a watercolor effect. I used the Daisy stencil and a baby wipe to remove color in shapes of flowers. I then used the same stencil and Orchid Chroma Glaze to add purple flowers. I then sketched three circles and painted those with white acrylic paint. While that was drying, I stamped a few flowers and leaves from the Inked Flowers stamp set and painted them with yellow and green inks mixed with Pearl Aqua Pigments. This is a great way to add sparkle to your paint and inks! Once all of the pieces were dry, I stamped out large letters to say "bloom" and  tiny letters to say 'creativity is a lifestyle." I glued everything in place, added a few other stamped details and sketchy lines.




Our last project on our Mixed Media hop using Stencils is by Liz:

Hello this past week we focused on ATC cards. If you're like I was, you probably don't know what these are. Artist Trading Cards. Come on how cool is that!
I've never created them before - and truth be told, I probably didn't actually create them in the correct size - but who cares, they were so much fun!
I definitely want to make more and start trading!
My first card, I started with Distress Oxides and blended the background. I then used the Brutus Monroe Alabaster Ink and stamped the Flutter background stamp on the card. I was being impatient and didn't wait for the Distress Oxide to dry, so the ink and oxides kinda blended together a bit, but I actually loved how they turned out. 
I wrapped white thread around the card then took torn paper and layered it. Finally I finished with stamping the Believe from the Flutter stamp on a tag.
My second card I did more of a regular mixed media background. I baby wiped out using the Brutus Monroe Chevron stencil. I layered some torn paper, more paint and a piece cut in half from the Stained Glass die from Brutus Monroe. 
Next I layered in some of the fabulous fibers and finished off with some words and a butterfly.
