No buttons???

Yep, here I've used my favorite new PTI stamp set.......Everyday Button Bits!! I needed to make a quick, easy card that was "mailable" and wanted to use this set again. So, instead of using buttons here on this card, I punched out 2-3/4" circles and 1-1" circle for the "tree tops". I love how this turned out! What about those yummy Dark Chocolate polka dots? This color is much darker than Burnt Umber and gives better coverage. Also used on this card was the new Vintage Labels stamp set......those double lines around the trees. This set coordinates wonderfully with the Spellbinders Labels I dies. But you don't have to use it with them.....just simply stamp them on your paper and have an instant cool border! This was my first try lining up the stamp with the die and I think it turned out pretty good.

Here is a close up of the trees. I popped the middle tree up as well as the embossed Label die. It's really hard with my less than wonderful photo taking skills to see but the smaller tree tops are stamped with Polka Dot Basics 2 in Ocean Tides ink. I think this ink is way too light and hope that this is one of the colors PTI chooses to reformulate soon. PTI has already chosen to reformulate some of their inks and from what I hear, the coverage is much better. However, this color does match and that is what the grass is stamped with as well.

PTI's Everyday Button Bits stamp set also includes 17 sentiments!!! I see myself using this set over and over again!! Everything you need in one stamp set!!

Cute card. I love the colors and seeing the set used in other ways, besides just with buttons:)

Ha! You don't know how close I came to doing the same thing the other day on my PTI card! I couldn't find the right size/color, and almost broke down and punched circles. Now I wish I had done so, your card is fabulous!!! Absolutely love it!

Very cute! The polka dots on the center tree are so much fun and the circles look wonderful.
