Hey Creative Scrapbooker Fans! Creativation came to an end last Monday and I was able to get my hands on one of the most talked about products on the show floor this year. Emerald Creek Craft Supplies has collaborated with Seth Apter to come out with his collection of embossing powders called Baked Texture.  These are my new favourite embossing powders and I’m sure that you will be stopping by your local scrapbook store to pick them up. For my project today, I’ve created this Happy Birthday ATC, (Artist Trading Card) which use a variety of products from Emerald Creek Craft Supplies, a die from Elizabeth Craft Designs, Super Stock from Creative Scrapbooker Magazine, some adhesive from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L as well as a few products from Ranger Ink. Read below as I share with you how to recreate my Happy Birthday ATC at home.Before starting your ATC’s, you’ll need to cover two ATC cards from Emerald Creek Craft Supplies with a page from an old book. To adhere the book page to each ATC, use Distress Collage Medium in Matte from Ranger Ink.To start, randomly apply Ground Espresso, Picket Fence, Antique Linen and Cracked Pistachio Distress Paint from Ranger Ink over one of the ATC’s. Allow the paint to dry.With the paint dry, apply Jet Black Archival Ink from Ranger Ink to the Kimilese stamp from Emerald Creek Craft Supplies. Randomly stamp the stamp overtop of the ATC.To make sure the ink is dry, dry with a heat tool. Rub Vintage Photo and a little bit of Walnut Stain Distress Crayon from Ranger Ink randomly on the ATC.Using the Emboss It Ink from Ranger Ink, create a ring in the top right and bottom left corner of the ATC. Sprinkle Baked Texture – Patina Oxide Embossing Powder from Emerald Creek Craft Supplies overtop of each ring. Tap off the excess powder and emboss with your heat tool. With the embossing powder cooled, randomly streak the Emboss It Ink from Ranger Ink over the ATC. Sprinkle Baked Texture – Dirty Sand Embossing Powder from Emerald Creek Craft Supplies overtop of each streak. Tap off the excess powder and emboss with your heat tool. Let the embossing powder cool.With the embossing powder cool, apply a coat of Emboss It Ink from Ranger Ink to the entire surface of the ATC. Sprinkle Baked Texture – Vintage Beeswax Embossing Powder from Emerald Creek Craft Supplies over the entire ATC. Tap off the excess powder and emboss with your heat tool. Once the embossing powder has cooled, apply Emboss It Ink from Ranger Ink the the bottom right and top left hand corners of the ATC. Sprinkle Baked Texture – Rocky Road Embossing Powder from Emerald Creek Craft Supplies over top of the top left and bottom right corners. Tap off the excess powder and emboss with your heat tool.From the Stitched Circles dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs, die cut the 2 1/4” stitched circle out of Super Stock Cardstock from Creative Scrapbooker Magazine. With the circle cut out, place the 1 3/4” stitched circle in the center of the 2 1/4” stitched circle and run through your die cutting machine. Apply Emboss It Ink from Ranger Ink to the stitched circle ring. Sprinkle Baked Texture – Chunky Rust Embossing Powder from Emerald Creek Craft Supplies over the entire stitched circle ring.

  1. wow, this is an amazing ATC, you are so creative and I just love this card so much. I don’t have many of the supplies so I can’t make it myself, but I will dream about it, LOL,l thanks for sharing your incredible idea. Cathryn

    • I just got thinking that maybe it would be very cool if you could make a kit for some of these cards which have supplies that are a bit out there, for those of us who don’t have say a die cut machine, or all the distress supplies and it would give us a chance to try some of these products out….I think that would be super fun! Maybe you could think about that as an idea.

  2. It would be a good idea to tell a novice like me what ATC is. I have no clue

  3. Love this Katelyn. I so appreciate you sharing all the steps and how cool that you used almost all the flavors of Baked Texture in this one piece.
