Neon ATC


Artist and Designer Eileen Hull has been crafting her whole life, and for the last decade has focused on designing products for crafters. Her signature line of ScoreBoards dies for Sizzix have created some fantastic tools that have gone far beyond what even she envisioned when designing them. 

One of these has given birth to the Artist Trading Block.

Sizzix was kind enough to share some of these ATC's with the Stampendous team so that we could play with them and this week Eileen's team and the Stampendous team will be sharing what they came up with.

Here is the first one that I made using some of the newest PenPattern stamps.











I started by sponging Imagine Crafts Radiant Neon Inks all over my box before I assembled it.  When the ink was dry I stamped the PenPattern Flower and the PenPattern Butterfly and the box sides.


I used my Faber-Castell Pitt Artist Pens tp doodle on the images.
I stamped the images on some scraps of Mixed Media White Paper and doodled on the images.  I sponged Imagine Crafts Radiant Neon Ink on them before cutting out parts of the images and adding them to the box with pop dots.

The final touch was to add plastic dots to the flower centers and some Spoonful of Confetti before assembling my ATC.


We know this form of crafting will spark your interest and give your mojo a serious boost! That’s why we have prizes!!!  

We’ll choose three winners at random from the comments on all blogs in the hop. Then from those three we’ll randomly pick a GRAND PRIZE winner! Two of the winners will receive Stampendous PenPattern Petal and PenPattern Flutter cling stamps, just like the ones I used on my ATC! 
They’ll also receive enough pre-cut, premium matboard from Sizzix to make two boxes of your own, plus some extra pieces for fiddly bits! The Grand Prize winner will receive the stamps as above, a whole package of matboard, AND the Sizzix die to cut your own ATB boxes! Uh, WOW!

Here are a couple more to check out today!
