AALL & Create Project #6 - Artist Trading Coins

Hello Friends

This is the second of two posts today, sometimes things just happen that way!

Artist Trading Coins (ATCoins) are all the rage at the moment and when I saw the latest release of stamps by Tracy Evans for AALL & Create, I just knew they would be perfect for making ATCoins.
I created the coins first and then decided they needed a holder (as you do - lol).
Starting with AALL & Create stamp set #113,  #119 and #140 (all by Tracy Evans) and Paper Artsy paints I created the coins.  Once I was happy with the result I gave each coin a triple layer of clear embossing powder.  I love the effect the EP gives and it really brings the colours to life.
I used all of the above colours in both the coins and the holder.
To create the holder I used a kit from Calico Crafts.  I brayered all of the pieces, front and back, with the same Paper Artsy paint colours I used on the coins and then stamped with AALL & Create stamp #119 and Stencil #22 (by Autour de Mwa), before constructing the holder.

Wherever you are in the world you can purchase the AALL & Create Stamps and Stencil I used from the stockists listed HERE.

I would like to join in with Country View Challenge, where the challenge is to create Artist Trading Coins.

That's all for this week, I have another post going live today, I am taking part in a Blog Hop.

Hugs, Anne xx


  1. Each of your coins are fabulous, Anne and love that you have given them a home with your equally fabulous altered display holdr . Embossing your coins with clear EP was such a fantastic idea as it really has accentuated the designs and given each of them a luxurious touch. Tfs and big hugs x

  2. These are fabulous Anne - so very bright and beautiful - and I adore the sheen of the embossing powder ...looks fabulous. And thanks so much for joining us at countryview challenges this month!!! Big hugs rachel xx

  3. Both the coins and the holder are completely stunning Anne!! You truly work miracles with those stamps and stencils! I love the idea of triple embossing yoir coins, - one to remember...

    I hope that maybe after Christmas we can do a coins swap one day...

  4. Love, love, love the coins Anne!! So bright and beautiful with their pretty stamped flowers!! Love, love, love the coin holder too! Gorgeous brayered background and brilliant stamping! Great idea to triple emboss the coins too. With that lovely shiny surface, they could even be used as flairs!! Thank you for sharing all of your wonderful ideas and your gorgeous art!! Have a fabulous day!! hugs xx

  5. What a great holder for the ATCoins, there's plenty of room for lots more in there. Triple embossing the coins really gives them a new dimension and i've found it protects them so much better especially with they have intricate bits and bobs on them. Great project Anne, showing those stunning stamps.
    Wishing you a wonderful weekend & Take Care.
    Warm Hugs Tracey xx
