The new challenge at the Magnolia Stamp Lover's blog is "buttons". Real buttons, chipboard buttons or stamped buttons. Drag 'em out and let's see 'em.
I don't usually make cards that don't have characters on them. I'm kind of addicted to the Kenny K girls and, of course, I love Tilda. This card's focus is a StampingScrapping Design stamp called Beaded Ovals. They're designed to be used with the Spellbinder's dies and I've used two of them, the oval frame and the sentiment. The punches were used to punch out both bottom flowers which were shaped with the McGill tools, stacked, and sewed together with the blue buttons. The corner flourishes under the flowers add a little dimension to the project. Once I picked out the paper, this card worked up quickly and is 5.5" by 5.5". You have lots of time to enter this challenge so head on over to the MSL blog.StampingScrapping Design Beaded Ovals; Spellbinder Classic Ovals Large; McGill Punches: Star Flower, Floriano; Sizzix Corner, Flourish #2.
