Artist Trading Block

by Sharon



  • Imagine Crafts/Tsukineko: Encore Ultimate Metallic: Green, Copper, Bronze, Pink, Purple; Jumbo Daubers
  • Sizzix: grass, box and fern dies
  • Prima: paper flower
  • May Arts: ribbon
  • Miscellaneous: white cardstock



1. Die cut all of your shapes to create your Artist Trading Block.  What is an Artist Trading Block?  Think of it as the 3D version of an ATC (Artist Trading Card)!

2. Using Jumbo Daubers, blend your color choice of Encore ink over the surface of all of your die cut pieces and allow to dry.


3.  Assemble your ATB with adhesive of choice.
