Introducing Button Up


Hello and welcome to day three of the Papertrey Ink November countdown!  This month we've got all kinds of fun stuff to share with you.  Today I'm happy to introduce to you Button Up.  A happy little set by Melissa Bickford, which features all sorts of button images.  I'm sure you'll love this set as much as I do... which happens to be a lot!
 
I've got a few samples to share with you.  So, let me get right to it...
First up, a simple one layer card.  Simply stamped four different button images in a color combo of limeade ice, new leaf, Hero Arts wet cement and Ranger Archival viridian.  Lovin' this combo!
Finished the card off with a sentiment from another new set, Sentiment Signs.  For an added touch, I pierced the holes of the buttons.
Next, a sweet and simple baby card.  Kept the color combo on this one soft, the only pop of color is Ranger Archival viridian ink.  This type of ink is perfect when it comes to handling a good thick coat of Glossy Accents.
Added a strip of impressed cardstock, using the new Aida impression plate.  Die cut a thread card, also new this month, and wrapped it with white embroidery floss.  The sentiment is from the Baby Button Bits stamp set. 
Last, but not least.  For this little number I pulled out my Background Basics: Super Stripes stamp set and stamped rows in black ink.
Layered a few die cut buttons, stamped with images from the Button Up stamp set, and hand cut new leaf leaves.  Then finished the card off with a sentiment from the new Framed Out #10 set.

Well, that concludes my look at the new Button Up stamp set.  Be sure to stop by Nichole Heady's blog, she will be featuring this set along with Hanging By a Thread and Sew Simple Borders. Also, Heather Nichols, Melissa Bickford, Erin Lincoln and Lexi Daly have peeks to share with you of their newest sets for the month.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

  8. Love the baby card. It looks exactly like a baby card should. That Aida impression plate added the perfect touch. The colors and style of the thinking of you card just pop off the page. Terrific! Great job.

    May I also say how much I dislike proving I'm not a robot with signs that I cannot EVER read. Those fuzzy numbers stink big time. A robot would probably stand a better chance of figuring it out.

  20. ��Love your cards they are so simple but have impact at the same time.Some of your ideas have inspired me.I make cards here in Australia for a group called combat cards.They are sent to our serving solders so they have cards to send back to their loved ones etc.Combat cards are a group of people who meet in Perth at Scrapbooks From The Hart once a month.They have just meet a goal of 10,000 cards.��������My hubby and I are traveling around Australia in a motor home.So from time to time I find card making very relaxing.Take care Carolyn��
