I'm so giddy! I love buttons. Okay, I really love everything about paper crafting, but I really love buttons. This is one thing that I enjoy about Stampin' Up-everything coordinates. I don't have to stress that my ink doesn't match my accessories. For us Type A people, that's big!
This weeks challenge over at Pals Paper Arts is to use buttons on a Clean and Simple Card. See why I'm giddy? So here is my creation...
I adore it! If you don't know this, Crumb Cake is my favorite neutral color, so I used it as my card base, but also added another layer. To give this layer some dimension, I sponged some Soft Suede ink on the edges and used dimensionals. For the image, I used the set Trendy Trees and stamped the trunk part with Early Espresso. I then stamped the tree part in Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Tempting Turquoise, and Rich Razzleberry. On top of each one I added a coordinating button from the Brights Collection. In the center, I tied on our new White Twine which will be available in the Summer Mini starting May 1. I added a Hello saying in the center of the card because I didn't want it to distract the front of the card.
This stamp is from Happy Greetings which will also be available May 1. It is a great "saying" set you'll for sure want to add to your collection.
Again, thanks for looking!
