Button Buddies

Today I have held my monthly class using the Button Buddies stamp set, which is designed to compliment the Stampin' Up! pots of buttons - so everyone got their own pot of Subtle buttons and a selection of papers and card to make their own cards. We used Bashful Blue, Pink Pirouette, Wild Wasabi,  Perfect Plum and Whisper White.

This pretty card could be used for a birthday or get well card, so I have decided to leave the sentiment until I know what I will use it for. The flower shaped buttons are perfect for adding dimension to the design.

I think this is my favourite card - I had spent time cutting out the flowers, then I realised Stampin' Up! had designed them to fit the scalloped circle punch?!!  It makes layering up this card really quick and easy, buttons added for the flower centres.

A simple way to use the wide ribbon is to add a small folded strip of it to the edge of the stamped image.

This is a really cute card, perfect for a quick Birthday card.

I have really enjoyed using the Button Buddies stamp set, I can't believe I bought it last November and have only just got around to inking it!!

If you would like to join my monthly card class contact me fro more details.
