Button Tread

Happy Friday everyone!

I have some more new goodies to share with you (I promise, I'm rarely this fortunate), my new PTI order came in yesterday. Yeah! :) In Bloom and Everyday Button Bits were on back-order, so as soon as they came in I had to place an order. So today's card was made using Everyday Button Bits (I'll post a card with In Bloom tomorrow)... Using my punches again! :) As soon as I saw these Spring Rain vintage buttons I immediately thought of tire tread. What better way to use them than on a bike! Here is what I am talking about...

See that tread like detail, it's a perfect fit! Did you notice the button threading? Just thought I would try something new (sorry for the glare), I thought it might make the bike look like it's in motion. Not sure if it worked. It is a cute detail though!

If you guys haven't noticed already, I love my corner rounder!!! I use it on almost every card, it just adds a nice subtle detail. Don't get me wrong, I love all my punches but this one just seems to fit every card no matter what the style is. Do any of you have a go-to tool like this?

Anyways, I have a birthday celebration to go to tonight (my niece is turning 5!), but other than that no big plans for the weekend! Hope you all have a wonderful one!

  1. What a CUTE card! I love it!! I'm really wanting to get some PTI stuff, I just haven't been able to yet. Lovin' those buttons! They do work great for the tires on the bike! I love my corner rounder as well. I agree, it works great on almost all cards! I really like the colors you used for this card.

  4. Love this! The buttons are perfect :) Smart thinking...love all the details and yet it's clean and simple :) It's funny you mention corner rounding because as I was vaccuuming this morning, I noticed a few punched off corners around the house!! If it's not glitter, it's corners!! LOL

  7. This is so adorable. I have resisted getting this stamp set because I loaded up on new Stampin up stuff with the new catalog. It's getting tougher and tougher seeing all these cute creations.

  10. This is great! I love the tire tread buttons... how cool and I think you did great with the stitching! That is awesome! I have a similar idea using the bike and that sentiment but my set is loaned out to a friend. Dont you hate it when that happens? I have to wait to get back so I can see if it works or not! :(
