Glue It Tuesday: Postal ATCs

I've been making postal-themed ATCs with some of my postage stamp jackpot from the auction last April.  I sat down to make one for an individual trade with the incomparable mail artist, Pamela, of Cappuccino and Art Journal, but when it comes to ATCs, it's really tough to stop at one!

For the first two, I channeled my "inner Karenann Young," whose postcards and altered Rolodex cards make me swoon.
My second two were created from one piece of postal ephemera I acquired at the Allentown Paper Show last month.  When I start with such a great foundation, there's no need to add much:
I have one ATC left over from a previous postal batch:
One of these (and I won't reveal which one) is on its way to Pamela, but if you would be interested in creating your own version of a postal-themed ATC, I would love to make a trade!  Let me know in the comments, or via an email to aleakaskey@yahoo.com, and we'll set something up. 

Happy Gluing!

I would love to trade with you.
I have so many stamps and love to create ATCs.
I take part in swaps at ATCSforall - a great place.

OooO love them -- can't wait to see which one you sent me. I have a favorite there and we'll see if I get it -- but I like them all. Now I need to get busy making mine. I channel Karenann too. She sent me four postal ATC's in a little folder she made a while ago and they are wonderful.
Let the trading begin!

I'd love to trade with you. Just saw your blogpost via Pamela, via Facebook. Reply back to my email to confirm, please.
Thanks for the inspiration!

Ditto on the FB via Pam. I'd love to get in on some postal ATC action! I hosted an Airmail ATC swap back on AFA. Happy to play! poeticpaper @ gmail.com

What a great idea I am swimming in old stamps from the 50's so you've inspired me!

I just love postal art. I don't know what it is about stamps and postmarks... guess it's the romantic idea of traveling! Looks great! {:-Deb

I love your cards - esp. the Lost Mail sticker is funny!

I can't help but to think of all the miles your stamps have traveled and the emotions they may have brought with them to their destinations. Such an interesting theme/medium to work with.

They are great! Will let you know if I make some.

As always, these are really cool! I love that 'postal red' don't you? These are not only vintage but give me a happy topical appreciation for the USPS.

The third one down is my favorite. Love them!
