Faux Buttons

For today's Ways to Use It challenge on SCS, we were to use buttons on a card. I decided to make faux buttons using my circle punches. To create the "buttons", I punched a circle using the 1 1/4" circle punch for the base. The outer ring was created by punching a 1" circle, then centering the hole inside the 1 1/4" circle punch & punching again to make a ring. I colored the outer rings with markers in a slightly darker shade, then adhered to the base with two-way glue. The "buttonholes" were created with the circle BG image from Big Bold Birthday. The scalloped buttons were created the same way using the scallop circle punch and the 1 3/8" circle punch. The stripes were made with Classic Stripes BG stamp colored with markers, and the sentiment is from Smarty Pants. Colors are Kiwi Kiss, Baja Breeze, Tangerine Tango, and Pink Pirhouette. TFL!

Do The Wave!

This card is for today's Limited Supplies Challenge on SCS. The challenge today was to use one or two stamps to create a border on a card. I use the bubbles image from Life's a Breeze to create the bubble border across the bottom of the card. The main image, clouds and sentiment are from Boatloads of Love. I used the Slit punch and Corner Rounder punch from SU to create the "wave" effect on the card. Colors used are Bashful Blue, Brilliant Blue, and Ruby Red. The waves and clouds are popped up on dimensionals, and I used silver brads and hemp cord as accents. TFL!
