2 ATCoin Christmas Ornaments by Leigh!

Season's Greetings Creative Friends❄️
 Have you been wanting to try your hand at making ATCoins but haven't a clue what to do with all the ones you're receiving in your swaps?  Then here's an idea for you, especially for your Christmas/Winter themed ones!

Making festive ornaments is just one of the projects you can use them for!  I’ve been making round paper ornaments forever so ATCoin ones is a no brainer for me, LOL!  My new Christmas ATCoins are perfect for ornaments but don’t stop there, you can print the designs out in whatever size you want and make a variety of Christmas projects!
Today I'm sharing 2 Christmas ornaments made with 2 of my Christmas ATCoins❄️


For my first Christmas ornament featuring the Meowy Christmas ATCoin I wanted a vintage feel.  


This design is a drawing of my precious kitty, Whiskers, and I coloured him up with Copics and applied Diamond Stickles glitter glue to the fur on his Santa hat.  The watercolour background was done with brown ColourTint by Spectrum Noir with a touch of Tea Dye Distress Ink applied around the edges after I tattered it up a bit.  I then coated the background with clear Wink of Stella for even more yummy sparkle.  


I adhered the coin to red cardstock cut to the same size so it just peeks out around the distressed edges and then mounted everything onto a torn circle die cut from decorative cardstock with the gold cord for the hanger sandwiched between them.  I then edged the torn circle die in metallic gold and attached the red satin bow with a glue dot.


My second ornament featuring the Snowflakes ATCoin is all about the bling!  I wanted it to be really pretty and sparkly in the glow of the Christmas tree lights.
 

 I coloured up the snowflakes with Copics in shades of purple, pink and teal blue and used Diamond and Icicles Stickles Glitter glue.  The watercolour background was done with blue ColourTint pencils with a coat of clear Wink of Stella applied once dry.  I then layered the panel onto blue cardstock cut to the same size and sandwiched the silver cord between them.  To complete the ornament I edged the circle with white dimensional Liquid Pearl on the front and Waterfall Stickles Glitter glue on the back and adhered the silver bow with a glue dot.
 

You can get the ATCoins individually or as Bundle set of 5 and save some money!  All come with the bonus ATCoin swap label for the back of your coins.  Today's featured designs are now FLASH SALE until midnight pacific on Monday 17th!

Christmas ATCoins by Leigh!

Season's Greetings Creative Friends❄️
There's only two days left to get in on our Artist Trading Coins Christmas Linky Party and Swap!  You can check out the swap details and how to get a FREEBIE ATCoin swap label I designed for you to use on the back of your coins plus see the release post for my 5 new Christmas themed ATCoins HERE!

 Today I'm sharing the 3 ATCoins I'm swapping❄️ 
All 3 were printed out at 2.5 x 2.5 inches and punched out and then layered onto red cardstock punched to the same size.


 This one features the  Poinsettia Oddleigh ATCoin.


She is so much fun and ever so cute!  I coloured her and the snowflakes up with Copics and added a blue ColourTint by Spectrum Noir watercoloured background.  This one got lots of bling!  I applied clear Wink of Stella to the background, her lips and eye shadow, her bow, poinsettia, holly and hat as well as an assortment of Stickles glitter glues to the snowflakes and the fur of her outfit and shoes as well as the edge of the entire coin.  I used Star Dust, Diamond and Waterfall Stickles.  You can't really tell in the photos but in real life the sparkle and shimmer is so magical.

 
 This one features the Santa Paws is coming to Town! ATCoin.


 I just love this kitty's cheeky face!  He's also coloured up with Copics with a blue ColourTint pencil watercoloured background.  I also applied a coat of clear Wink of Stella to the background, Stickles glitter glue to the fur of his coat and Viva Pearl magic transparent white dimensional drops to the holly berries.  I distressed the coin edges and applied Stormy Sky an Black Soot Distress Inks.


This one features the super versatile Holly ATCoin!


You can do so much with the Holly frame and one of them is to add a sentiment to the center!
I coloured the design with Copics and this time used brown ColourTint pencil to watercolour the background.  The holly got the Wink of Stella treatment and I applied magic transparent white dimensional drops to the berries.  The sentiment was stamped in the center with Onyx Black Versafine ink.  I distressed the edges on this one too and applied Pumice Stone, Tea Dye and Black Soot Distress Inks.


The swap details are on the back of all 3 using my new fancy dancy  Christmas ATCoin Swap Label!  Join the Christmas ATCoin Linky Party and Swap and get the swap label for FREE!  I coloured the Holly with Copics and applied clear Wink of Stella to the leaves and berries.  I designed the label to be about 1/8 inch smaller than 2.5 inches but you can print it out to whatever size you prefer.  I wanted to see the red cardstock I layered the coins onto peeking out.  I also applied Black Soot Distress Ink to the edges on the back of the coins to finish them off.
  

  The Bundle set and each individual coin sets are currently available at a special intro price until Dec 9th!  Sale ends at midnight pacific!

Oddleigh Cupcake pop-up Birthday card by Leigh!

Season’s Greetings Creative Friends!
LeighSBDesigner Val is celebrating a very special milestone birthday today🎉
I’m so proud and very lucky to have such a wonderful Mom😘. Wishing you the happiest of Birthdays full of joy, love and lots of hugs❤️

I made this pop-up Birthday card for my Mom featuring lil miss Oddleigh Cupcake and the matching  Cupcake from the Oddleigh Cupcake set.


 Here's the front of the card showing my Cupcakes piled onto a die cut cake stand.  I constructed the matching wedge shaped box envelope completely from scratch to perfectly fit the shape of the card while closed.


The magic happens when you open the card and reveal the 3D scene with a tiered pop-up Birthday cake on a the same cake stand I used on the front of the card.  The dimensional birthday cake dies, embellishment dies and decorative cardstock are all from Crafter’s Companion.


lil miss Oddleigh Cupcake is stunning in her colour cordinating finery, cupcake fascinator and a die cut gold star earring!   Isn't she the cutest!


There's an extra cupcake for even more wish making too🌟


You can never have too many cupcakes🎂


The ODDLEIGH CUPCAKE SET is now on FLASH SALE!
Sale ends Wednesday Dec 5th at midnight pacific!
