Button, Button, Who's got the Button?

I do! I do!

I love this set, as I love buttons. I used to play in my mom's button box (when she let me).

Stamps: Button, Button, In Stitches Wheel
Paper: Tempting Turquoise, Pear Pizzaz, Whisper White, Sweet Stitches DSP
Ink: Tempting Turquoise, Rose Red, Pear Pizzaz, So Saffron Markers, Versamark
Accessories: Many Marvelous Markers, Aquapainters, Window Sheet, Decorative Label Punch, Clear Block E, Pear Pizzaz Seam Binding, Fork, Sweet Buttons Embosslit

I designed this card first for a card swap with my demonstrator friends at Stampin' Addicts. As it dried, I realized that the Crystal Effects didn't give me the right effect that was in my  head. I liked it, but it wasn't what I was picturing. Instead, I used an aquapainter to color the buttons. That worked. Unfortunately, I swapped them before taking a picture! I also changed where I put the punch, as I just thought it looked off where I put it here. See, cards can always change!

One thing I love about buying clear sets is that I placed all of the buttons on one large block, colored them with markers, and then stamped. They were perfectly lined up each time!

Happy  Stamping!



  1. Love this card, but I know the feeling of changing things up once I have it done

  2. I'm a big button fan too! Perhaps I'll get to see your other button card in person.

  3. This is great! Now I'm thinking I should have bought it in Clear Mount instead of wood...

  4. OOH - good idea with the clear mounts!

  5. This card is great!! Thanks for the tip!

  6. Very cute Sara! Love how you mounted all the stamps on one block. I can't wait to get that button embosslit. I would add buttons to every card, but I'm too stingy. But if they were made out of paper, I could!

  7. Thanks for the tip, Sara! I keep forgetting that seriously important feature of clear mount stamps. Can't wait to play with this stamp set.

  8. Cool card! Great tip with the clear mount stamps!

  9. I love those buttons too!! Pretty card :)
