Artist Trading Coins Trio

Hello all you Blank Page Muse Fans. Hope your Summer is going well. Cathy here to share my trio of Artist Trading Coins. These things are HOT right now. I hope I inspire you to go out and try some of your own!

Stamps Used:
Pineapple by Pam Bray
Tropical Flowers by Pam Bray
Ravens Den by Pam Bray
Silhouette tree 
Raven from Halloween on a shelf
Feathered Wings
Light Bulb
Artist Trading Coin Back

Other Supplies:
100 LB cardstock(to make the Coin sturdy)
Circle Die
Glitter pen
Glue Stick
Glossy Accents
Distress inks and Oxide
Black ink
White cardstock
Word stickers

All the Coins start out the same way.
Start out with a 2.5 circle. Die cut 2 100LB circles and glue them together.
It makes for a stronger Coin.

 Next take some white cardstock and die cut a circle from it.  Use some Distress ink and smooch it on a craft sheet and drag the circle through the ink. Heat to dry. Glue this to the Coins you cut out earlier.

Then stamp Feathered Wings on Coin. Set aside.

 Stamp Light Bulb on scrap white cardstock. Color wires with Copic  markers. Cut out.
 Glue the Light Bulb onto the front of Coin with the Feathered Wings. Add Glossy Accents to Light Bulb. Let dry. Last add a word sticker that goes with the images.

 Took a scrap yellow cardstock that had some stenciling on it and cut a circle out of it. Saved it from the trash.
 Stamped the Tropical Flowers  on the edge. Made a mask of the flower and stamped it repeatedly along the side. Added some glitter to the flowers to make them sparkle.  
Next stamp Pineapple on bottom of Coin and color in with Copic markers. Last add a word sticker that goes.

 Use your Distress Oxide for this one. Smooch the inks on the craft mat and  grab a white cardstock circle and run it through. Dry
 Then stamp part of the  Silhouette tree  on Coin. The next step is the hardest. What way do you want the tree branches to go?

Stamp  Raven on gray cardstock and color in with Copic makers. Then cut out. Glue cut Raven to the Coin.
 Last stamp Ravens Den on a scrap piece of white cardstock.
Cut up and edge with black marker.

Last take some pattern paper and stamp Artist Trading Coin Back
Cut out using die. What is nice the stamp is smaller then the Coin so it fits nicely on the back.
