Valentine Trading coin

Today I want to share a trade project I made.  I signed up for a trading coin swap.  I had never tried this so I was excited to see what I could do.  I started with my gel press and sticker paper.  I used my Sweet Cane, Sweet Pink, Sour Watermelon and Rich Cherry Sugar Cubes.  I wanted the square shaped background so I didn't use a brayer to blend the colors.  I then used my background stamp, Many Hearts to pull ink off the gell press and stamp on to my print. 

I then used my Scan and cut to  cut circles in the sticker paper and a circle a 1.4 inch larger in Rich Cherry Sugar Stock to cover the base of my chipboard coin. I then used the digital file Sweet Love to size my bear to fit on the coin.  I then duplicated it on a sheet to make 10 coins. The bears I colored with my copic markers and cut out with my Scan N Cut.  I layered the 2 circles and then added some valentine washi tape I had and some heart confetti to add to my theme.  I then popped my mama and baby bear on the coin.  I finished off the coins with a red sharpie to color the edges of my chipboard.

For my first coin swap I really had fun making them.  It was a challenge to edit plans once you get going on the coin.  You realize real quick that there isn't a lot of space and you have to really pick and choose what you want to include and make it work.  I made sure my strip of washi on the bottom would all show the word love once I added my bear.  I hope you all have a wonderful Valentine's Day.

Today I want to share 2 cards I made with an RGStudio360 digital image.

This is Wee Doggie and reminded me of my little guy Beegley.  

So I colored the images with my copics and made these 2 cards.  Although Beegley is 15 now and a little more grey in the face he did have a lot of brown when he was younger. These were fun to make.  Do you have a furry friend at home?  Its always such a joy to come home and have a welcoming committee there to greet me.  Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of our hop.

Be sure to hop over to Kim next.

Here's our line up in case you get lost along the way.
