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!
If you just want the CHRISTMAS ATCoin SWAP LABEL then you can get it on its own too😉

Thanks for stopping by to see today's inspiration!
Happy Creating!
