Snarky Artist Trading Cards

Welcome back to the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers! After a four week break, we are back with our first challenge of 2021: A is for ATC! If you're not familiar with ATCs, the acronym stands for Artist Trading Card (or Coin), and are little pieces of your art! Lee's graphic is an excellent primer on them.
For me, ATCs are a great way to use up bits and pieces from my stash. This is the way I approach them:
1. Pick a theme.
2. Find backgrounds and other stash to use. 
3. Make some ATCs!
For my theme, I decided on adult beverages, perfect for the ongoing pandemic. ;) Here they are: 

All the backgrounds and die cut pieces are from my stash. I did add some ink blending to the bottle and glasses on my first ATC, and of course had to emboss the wine glasses on the other wine-related one. Other than that, all I really had to do was add the appropriate sentiments! These were quick and fun to make. A closer look at each:

All kinds of fun ATC inspiration on the Snarky blog, from my sisters as well as our current Queen of Snark and guest designer Beverly!  Make a trading card or coin and join us!

Your adult beverage ATCs are fabulous; exactly what we need to get through these pandemic-and-other-assorted-weird-things days...weeks...months! Given how much I enjoy making small-sized projects (tags, for instance,), I have not yet made any ATCs! I think you may have just sparked an upcoming DT project; fingers crossed I can make the percolating idea happen!
