Button Buddies and one layer cards

 Beautiful flowers, buttons, cute pigs, snowmen, cherries and vases of flowers ... its all in the Button buddies stampset. I have only just scratched the surface with the cards I have made so far.
 This one is a CASE from from the Idea Book and Catalogue. A quick and simple card with a button attached using a mini glue dot.
 Next I wanted to stamp all the in-colours and make centres of the flowers with the new glass glitter.
It sticks on perfectly with the multipurpose glue.
 Then next is a cute little piggy in Melon Mambo with the perfect bow attached at the top and a button for his nose! Faux buttons work just as well (using the button embosslit die).
 Shelli demonstrated this stampset up on stage at our Stampin up Convention back in May.
The last one is made by my daughter, Jess. She wanted to colour every petal a different colour (but her mum would only let her use the retired brights colour markers .... and none of any new ones).
Not surprising, It came out very pretty on these pre-punched cards.
She has used the Friendly phrases stampset for her words- Wow you're the Best!
 We have school holidays for the next two weeks - I'm looking forward to lots of crafting!

  1. Love these bright colours, so effective with not alot of product needed. Like the look of the glass gitter too, another item to add to my must have list. Jess has made a very bright, funky card, what a great idea, she takes after her Mum with creativity.
