Button it!

Something a bit different today… using (gasp!) buttons! It’s a well-known fact among my crafting friends that I don’t really like buttons on cards but, for some reason, I got the urge to buy some of Stampin’ Up!’s coloured buttons and, even more surprisingly, I got the urge to use them!

The buttons are stuck on with Glue Dots® which made it really easy. I cut one of the flowers out of the Designer Paper and popped it up with Stampin’ Dimensionals to give it some depth.

Stamps: Basic Phrases (p65)
Cardstock: Really Rust, Old Olive
Paper: Fall Flowers (p72)
Ink: Always Artichoke
Accessories: Earth Elements buttons (p87), 3/8” Grosgrain Ribbon – Old Olive (p86), Linen thread (p87)

  1. Love the popped up flower, Helen. Couldn't manage to use so many buttons on a card though - I like to keep them and look at them!

  4. Super cute! I'll have to dig up my buttons and actually use them instead of hoarding them!

  5. I'm not a button person either but like what you've done with them might have to get some of those.

Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. I love receiving genuine comments - I do get bored of deleting dodgy links though!
