Colorful Buttons Note Card

Last time Cousin Pati stopped by, we were talking about buttons. We both have extra buttons lying around.

I don’t often use buttons on cards – it makes a card expensive to mail.

I did pull out an old Sizzix/Stampin’ Up! Embosslits die – Sweet Buttons, to create paper buttons.

Supplies:  Paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, PopTone Razzle Berry, Sour Apple, Stampin’ Up! Basic Black, dies – Reverse Confetti (quilted tag), Stampin’ Up! (buttons), corner rounder – We R Memory Keepers.


Instant Camera Smile Note Card

A card with a “smile” sentiment is always good to have in your stash.

The Spellbinders square fit perfectly into the tag grid lines – WOOT!  (The little things make me happy!)

Supplies:  Stamp – Altenew, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, PopTone Sour Apple, Stampin’ Up! Tempting Turquoise (retired), inks – Copic B0000, B00, B02, C3, C5, C7, VersaFine Onyx Black, dies – Reverse Confetti (quilted tag), Spellbinders (square), Taylored Expressions (smile), corner rounder – Stampin’ Up!, embossing powder – Stampendous Detail clear.

This was sent off to a dear friend.

How are your holiday preparations proceeding? The offspring helped decorate the Christmas tree over the weekend. And I printed my wall calendars (3 – 2 for gifts, 1 for here). I still have not completed a holiday card – good thing I have lots of sentiments to choose from because HAPPY NEW YEAR is looking more and more appropriate!

Pink Pirouette, Real Red, Wild Wasabi (retired), ink – VersaFine Onyx Black, dies – Reverse Confetti (holly, berries), Simon Says Stamp (banner), embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear.

Checked Gift Tags

I allotted my morning time on Wednesday to gift tags, and I got 7 made, along with a note card.

This checked paper is from last year’s Crate Paper Falala pad.

Here are the backs of the tags.

You can see on the middle one there was a rogue dot from some other die cut – I got quite a nice impression.

The red snowflake is one out of the pile I had after finishing my parents’ Christmas cards.

Supplies:  Stamps – Hero Arts, paper – Crate Paper Falala, My Favorite Things Field Day, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Real Red, ink – VersaFine Onyx Black, dies – Lawn Fawn (tag), My Favorite Things (outstitched rounded rectangle, snowflake), Reverse Confetti (holly), sequins – Doodlebug Designs, embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear, metallic cord – Paper Mart.
