Artist Inspiration Coins

5/17/20 Rising Star at A Place To Start!

Hi friends! Happy Monday! I have an awesome set of three gold embossed artist trading coins to share with you today, in full color with amazing inspirational quotes!

Using a large background stamp, I arranged all three punched circles on my stamp positioner, stamped them in Versamark and then heat embossed them in gold. I colored the coins with bright fine-tip markers and then adhered each to a second punched circle. I ran a gold paint pen around the edge of each coin to give them a nice finished look. I selected three gold metallic quotation stickers and adhered them to two layers of cardstock, then added one to each coin. Here are close-ups of the coins:

One more peek at the set… loving how these turned out, and yes, they are an amazing addition to my collection!
