“Metalize” it!

I’m always looking for something new and different and this was just what I needed! ATCoins! They remind me of the round badges that were popular in the 80’s.

They were right up there with Swatch watches! My sisters brought the 80’s back when they gave me this for my 40th birthday trip to Vegas…

ATCoins are similar to Artist Trading Cards except they are round instead of rectangular. They are 2.5 inches of mini canvas to decorate!

The new Southern Girls challenge is up and the theme is to add some metal to your projects! I have plenty of metal embellishments, but I wanted something else. It’s been awhile since I got out my Ten Seconds Studios sheet metal and embossing tools. I watched this video for a refresher.

I created a metal embellishment out of Ten Seconds Studios metal and one of the new Club Scrap stamp images from the Ivy League kit. I used the instructions from the video to create my metalized “wax” seal!

I found a tiny metal coffee cup charm for this coin and a mini pair of reading glasses too!

I was playing with scraps and came up with this one. I intended to make a starburst pattern, but liked this instead! The sentiment was just the right fit for my 1.5 inch circle punch.

    1. Definitely! These little beauties need to be seen! I like using ATC’s as embellishments too. I’ll have a fun project idea for a future post with ATCoins soon! Thanks for stopping by Tammy!

  1. Hi Wendy, I always enjoy your creations. Seems we are on the same kick right now, I hadn’t seen your post when I posted my coins. I love using metal and you really created some fun pieces. Thanks so much for sharing your creativity.
