A Single Rose
This is my second post for today. My CCEE Stampers post is one down.
I have had men working in my house yesterday and today so what better time to make a card and play in some challenges. But, I'll sure be glad when they are gone. I'm finally getting my backsplash tiles for the kitchen. Yes, I've had it! All this work has been going on since, I believe, last Spring.
I wanted to do the tutorial found at by Inspired by Stamping-WHW#92. It is a tute by my pal, Colleen Dietrich at Detrich Designs. It is all about Decorating Buttons. I used an IBS image from Small Fancy Labels 1 to stamp on my green cardstock for the button cover. I stamped the image a few times and just punched out with a 3/4" punch to fit over the same size button and glued it on. It is best to use a flat button. Oh, and I used a paper piercer to punch the holes . You can add glossy accents and some twine to run through the holes if you like. I made 4 or 5 buttons and ended up only using one...can save the others for another card. My sentiment is from Inspired by Stamping/Flowers Bloom.
My sketch is from Splitcoaststampers, Sketch SC426.
The pretty patterned paper is Botanical Collection bought in a 6 x 6 stack pad from Hobby Lobby. It has such pretty matching papers. My white cardstock is PTI and the rest of the cardstock is just scraps with no name.
I didn't color my rose, instead just cutting out and placing on the Spellbinders circle and scallop circle nestabilie.
I'm entering my card into the Simon Says Stamp challenge blog this week-in honor of St. Patrick's Day, use a bit o' green.
Glad you came by and hope you have a good rest of the week....even if you are in piles of snow. We are supposed to be in the low 70's Saturday and Sunday. Guess who is happy about that?
