Hi everyone! Woot-woot, another Friday has rolled around and it’ll be Christmas before we know it! I can’t wait! Our weather has cooled off out here in Colorado and we are loving life – the cooler climate is what attracted us nearly five years ago! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you. I really appreciate your support! I’m delighted to be back on the Dies R Us Inspiration Blog today with another awesome DT inspiration project! I’ve been on an ATC kick again lately and created a set of RAK artist trading coins using the Memory Box Love Circle, Pinpoint Heart Circle, Cupid Circle, Peaceful Butterfly Circle and Jumping Bunny Circle to add to my growing collection! If you know me, you know I absolutely love all kinds of artist trading cards, coins and cubes, and I typically don’t trade them, lol! I’ve never made any ATCs with a random acts of kindness theme so I thought that would be different and fun, and these dies were just the ticket!
I die cut the Memory Box Love Circle, Pinpoint Heart Circle, Cupid Circle, Peaceful Butterfly Circle and Jumping Bunny Circle from CutCardStock Pop-Tone Cotton Candy cardstock, CutCardStock Raspberry Ice cardstock, CutCardStock Stardream Metallic Azalea cardstock, CutCardStock Dolphin cardstock, CutCardStock Stardream Metallic Amethyst cardstock and set them aside. I punched the coin bases from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 110# cardstock, two per coin for stability, and also punched the background pieces from patterned paper and one from CutCardStock Basis Red cardstock. I adhered all the layers and elements, stamped a kindness sentiment on each one, and added gemstones.
And one more look at the set… absolutely loving these circle dies and the amazing ATCs created with them! ;)
