Stampendous Is Playing With Buttons

We are SO EXCITED to be hopping with Buttons Galore and More for a whole week. We have some fun projects to share that all include an abundance of buttons that were so generously sent to our team.
Buttons Galore and More provides a wide selection including specialty designed embellishments for celebrations, holidays, and various other events and themes. Find a plethora of choices on their website at Buttons Galore and More!
Yes, we have PRIZES! There are three (3) prize packages that include one of each:
  • Cling Create Christmas Stamps Set
  • Create Christmas Die Cut Set
  • Assortment of Buttons
To be eligible, you must be a US resident (see Official Rules), comment on our blog and that of each Stampendous designer’s blog posts each day of the hop and tell us in what state you live. Deadline to comment for our prizes is Sunday, October 18, 2015. Winners will be selected by random.org and will be announced sometime on Monday, October 19th.
Wait! For our Aussie friends, be sure to comment and tell us where you’re from, because our Australian Distributor The Stencil Specialists are sponsoring a prize for one friend “down under” to win a Stampendous Stamp, a Dreamweaver Stencil and a surprise goodie from their terrific stock of Stampendous merchandise!

1.  Stamp Candy Canes on Mixed Media White Paper with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and color the pine needles and bow with Spectrum Noir pens and the candy cane with colored pencils.
2.  Glue blue and green buttons onto the ornaments, they fit perfectly and look so cute.

3.  Chalk around the image using blue chalk and an flat brush.
4.  Sprinkle Spoonful of Snow onto the bottom of the panel and heat from underneath so it doesn't blow off.  Then layer onto a glossy silver panel and glue to a blue card.
5.  Stamp sentiment on white paper with black, sponge with blue ink, layer onto silver paper and pop.

This is GORGEOUS! I love buttons on cards and what a great idea you've given us for using them. The snow is a perfect touch too! Texas

Love how you used the stamps to make the buttons into ornaments.
Having the silver hanger really makes them.
I have to get my buttons out and start using them.
thanks for sharing.

This is a wonderful image. So well colored and the snowy embossing powder is a great addition as are the buttons for ornaments.

This is awesome with those buttons as berries and beautiful coloring. I love how you always find a way to add some Stampendous bling to your cards. It really makes them polished.
