Manila ATCs are a heavyweight cardstock surface to stamp, ink, paint, emboss, decorate, embellish and alter! The smooth finish accepts all types of mediums and the durable cardstock stands up to all types of wet or dry techniques.

Gloss Paper ATCs are the perfect blank surface for dye and pigment ink stamping techniques, embossing, coloring with markers and embellishing! The sturdy cardstock with a smooth glossy finish is ideal for Adirondack® Alcohol Ink and resist techniques.

Sticky-Back Canvas ATCs were inspired by Claudine Hellmuth Studio Sticky-Back Canvas sheets. These unprimed mini canvas sheets in Natural or White accept all types of mediums and the glue backing stays sticky even after using wet media. Use with Claudine Hellmuth Studio paints, inks and more.

Tim Holtz Distress Stickles
*These match the 12 new colors of Distress Inks released in January!*
Distress Stickles by Tim Holtz has a unique combination of variegated glitter sizes and a matte look to complement the nostalgic palette of Distress Products. Application of Distress Stickles provides a thicker, bolder application than traditional Stickles.  Add a bit of vintage shimmer to cards, scrapbook pages, home décor and more. Accent distressed projects with this textural glitter. Distress Stickles are "inkable" with Distress Inks when inks are dry. This creates a tarnished look on the glitter.
