Baba’s Buttons

September 22, 2009 at 8:11 pm 1 comment

When I bought Paper Trey’s Everyday Button Bits, I knew I’d be using lots of my Baba’s buttons. Baba was my grandmother (on my Dad’s side) and she saved buttons of all shapes and sizes. I decided to use an I heart 2 stamp sketch for this card:

The card base is Pink Pirouette and I layered it with Kiwi Kiss and some new Basic Gray paper I picked up at Deserres last weekend. I used Kiwi Kiss for the flower stems and added Baba’s buttons for the flowers. I used Teeny Tiny Wishes and my new punches/dies and just overlapped it a little over the main image.

I have to dig through a ton of buttons each time I go to use them, but I think it paid off on my next card too:
I used Mojo Monday’s “
MojoFriday” sketch:MojoFriday. I love the buttons I used on the bike wheels. They are silver and look like they have rims! I am so happy I could find two of the same kind in the right sizes. WooHoo! Gotta love it when that happens!

    Love the cards you’ve been doing! The bike is amazing. You’re right — use those buttons! I have some too that have been handed down and I’ll now start using them on cards!
