2019 Spring/ Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

Yes, here we are for another week of coffee fun!
Thanks to Amy and her crew we are feasted to some wonderful
coffee inspiration and when participating you can also win
some great coffee goodies.

So for all the fun and information you go here:
I start the hop with a give away!
This Craft Sensations clear stamp set is for one
of you, if you leave a comment to this blogpost.
On Sunday May 12 the winner will be announced..

Now on to the art work.
I have been seeing lots of these Artist Trading coins lately
and i thought it was a fun idea to make some for the  Coffee
Lovers Blog Hop.

What is an ARTIST TRADING COIN you may ask.
It is like the Artist Trading Card (ATC). A  fixed size
and not for sale, can only be obtained by trading.
The fixed size of an artist trading coin is a circle of 2,5 inch
and can be decorated with every kind of craft.

For the first two coins I  used some scraps of paper,
a circle die of 2,5 inch and a backcover to add 
title, name and other info of the coin.

I used the die to make a circle with pencil on the paper
so I know where to add the artwork. 
So I stamped and colored with my Stampin'blends.
Cut everything and added this to the coin.
The lady is out of a package by Tim Holtz.

When everything is in place, the coin is cut.

This is the result.

And here is another one. Behind the cups I also
used some washi tape.
And this is the last one for today.

I wish you a wonderful coffee week and hope 
to see many of you around by visiting all your blogs
or instagram.

And the winner of my stampset is:

I have not seen these trading coins but they are a sensational idea. Love the look of your coffee themed ones! Thanks for the inspiration and sharing such good ideas with all of us!

Beverly S. said...

Hetty...I love your round ATCs (especially the one with the vintage woman image). :) These look like such fun to make...I may have to give them a try. Thanks for sharing and your fun giveaway too! :)

Heidi MyLittleStampingBlog said...

Very cute ATCs. I love how you make them first on a bigger piece and cut it down. When I tried it, I cut it out first but I think your way looks easier. TFS and hoping to see you around soon!

Gail said...

These are fabulous! Love the colors in all of them - a nice ATC and circle at that! Cool - a coin? That is a neat idea - been awhile since I did an ATC - like how your art turned out here - TFS and for your lovely give away as well - happy crafting!

Love the vintage feel of these Hetty and I love collages. Collages are something I can not do but I love to look at. I started late this year but had so much fun making coffee cards.
