Vintage Saga Artist Trading Coins

I had meant to include these with the tag album featured in my last post, but they came out a little too thick to fit in the pockets…

Kim included a package of Artist Trading Coins in the September Très Jolie Cards, Tags and More Kit. Yes, that’s Coins, rather than Cards. They’re produced by Creative Embellishments: 2 ½” chipboard circles, perfect for designs on a small scale.

I cut 12 circles from the 6 x 6 paper pad that came in the kit, mostly using scraps left after I had cut the album pieces. After inking all of the edges and sorting out the front and back circles, I glued them to the coins.

I took some of the images that I had fussy cut from the Motif Sheet and a set of flourish chipboards from my stash, and played around with them until I was satisfied with the designs.

The flourishes were treated with some of the Lindy’s embossing powder that came in the kit. I actually used several layers to give them a smooth coating.

I glued all of the components together, backing bits of the cut-outs with small pieces of packaging to give them stability.
The bird card is actually made from two images with packaging in between to add some dimension.

To finish my Artist Trading Coins, I selected a few Tim Holtz word stickers that I thought matched my designs. I inked them, then glued them down and called them “finished”.

And there you go: a quick and easy project, done in no time!
