Last 3 Buttons

Today I am going to be sharing with you the last 3 cards from my Button Button Event on Saturday February 19th. The thing I like best about all three of these cards is that you could put any sentiment on them.

This adorable card was designed by Donna Schneidtmiller. You can check out her blog by clicking Here. She is a wonderful lady just full of talent & ideas. So this wonderful card uses my favorite color, Crumb Cake along with Marina Mist. The stamp sets are the Button Button stamp set, then the words come from Short & Sweet stamp set. But really you could use any words. The ink color is also Marina Mist. The hole for the ribbon was done with the crop-a-dile (such a wonderful tool). The ribbon is Marina Mist 1/4" grosgrain ribbon, tied with a bit of hemp twine. Then on one of the small button stamps is a button from the itty bitty buttons collection. Around the outside of the large piece of crumb cake she sponged a bit of the Marina Mist ink. Just love it. Thanks Donna for sharing your talents.

This next card was designed by fellow demonstrator & new friend Isis Pinero (she was inspired by Krista Fenton). As you can see she used the New Baby words from the Fundamental Phrases stamp set, but again you really could use any words. Then she used assorted buttons from the Button Button stamp set & 5 different colors of ink to make the design on whisper white cardstock. She used Daffodil Delight, Baja Breeze,Crumb Cake, Chocolate Chip & Cajun Craze. The base of the card is Marina Mist cardstock. She took a piece of Daffodil Delight cardstock & ran it through the Big Shot machine with the polka dot embossing folder (just love embossing folders). Then she punched a piece of Whisper White cardstock with the designer label punch & tucked it behind the Daffodil Delight cardstock. Just slightly peeking out. Next the words were punched out with the modern label punch & a piece of Marina Mist taffeta ribbon was attached with a button brad from the vintage trinkets collection. That was then attached to the card with 2 dimensionals.

This last card was designed by Becky Morris. The only colors used on the card are concord crush & whisper white. Two of the buttons are punched out with the 1" & 3/4" circle punches & popped up on dimmensionals. Otherwise all of the other buttons are stamped directly onto the whisper white cardstock. A piece of Concord Crush striped ribbon is tied around the whisper white cardstock. Then the words were punched out with the large oval & adhered to a piece of Concord Crush that has been punched out with the scallop oval punch.



  1. Great Cards! My favorite is the Concord Crush, but they are all really neat and a great way to show the versatility of the set! Love your blog!!

  2. Those are great cards! I have to agree though that I really like the concord crush. I think it's just how bold the color is and how it just yells for your attention. TFS.

  3. Thanks ladies. I love that card too. Probably because concord crush is one of my FAV colors. : )
