So are the rest of you following all the PTI anniversary challenges? Wow! There are a lot and I've chosen to play along with using buttons in a creative, unique way! Well since PTI is coming out with their own line of stamps to make button cards, I thought, "hey! I have some of those". I scored big this past summer when I found a LOAD of these vintage buttons still on their cards! This particular button card had 1957 stamped on the back! So instead of hoarding my supplies (something my friend Jen and I talked about today), I decided to get out some things that I have had since last summer!
The button card:
Not only did I use my vintage button card find, I made my own paper buttons! I die cut the smallest Spellbinders circles, punched holes, and threaded the buttons. I did stamp my buttons with an image from Background Basics: Botanicals.
I don't have the Love Lives Here stamp set YET but I do have the dies and have been itching to use this tiny house. I masked off the house portion to stamp Haystack Pallette ink for the rooftop. Then using Background Basics: Text Style to add some text to the house portion. My house is layered on a Sweet Blush die cut circle from the Love Lives Here dies and then layered further on a Martha Stewart decorative tag. Everything you see has been shabbied up with Haystack Pallette ink with a sponge.
The colors were inspired by this week's Play Date Cafe challenge for vintage and pink/kraft and also by ColourQ for virtually the same colors......so I am sending this over! I also stamped on some pattern paper and Dana, from Kismet, Art, and Life, challenged us to do this on over at Do More With Less blog.
