I love buttons…

The Stampin’ Up! in-colour Button Bouquet buttons to be precise! I have had them for about 2 or 3 weeks now and I’ve almost used them all. I just love having buttons that go with the in-colours and although I was disappointed that SU! retired the other buttons, I’m loving with these ones. I’ll have to get the Latte ones now too and have a play with them.

So, why am I talking about buttons??? Well, yesterday’s card had buttons (though the old retired ones) and today’s offering also has them…the new in-colour ones. Want to see it?


This is another one of the Magnolias that Kellie stamped for me. I tell you, having all these cute images is making it very hard for me to refrain from buying a whole lot of stamps!!! I figure I’ll just have to get Kellie to stamp me some more….LOL! I do provide the paper and this time I might have to send something tasty to keep her going while she stamps them :)

I coloured this Tilda with a combination of markers and the ink from the lids of the inkpads and the trusty aquapainter. I like the softness of the watercolouring with the Tildas…it suits them I think. I’ve also used Riding Hood Red, Baja Breeze and Basic Gray CS and the Basic Gray polka dot DSP from the hostess pack (did I tell you how much I love these papers?). The ribbon is Riding Hood Red striped grosgrain and the buttons are, of course, the Button Bouquet ones. The sentiment is from Short and Sweet and is stamped in Riding Hood Red on Baja Breeze and punched with the small oval. I then mounted it onto a large oval of Basic Gray and a Designer Label of Riding Hood Red.

I really like the way these colours look together and think that I could even make this work for a masculine card…that might have to be a challenge for myself :) OK, better go get ready….I’m going to the bank this afternoon to see if they’ll give me a home loan so I can buy a house. To tell the truth I’m a teeny bit terrified by the idea of owning a house…but we’ll see how it goes. After all, they might say NO WAY!!! LOL.

Kristie, this is a gorgeous! I love the colours and the matching buttons look so good!
I have just got my box of goodies and had it all out last night with Susannah and couldn't come up with anything...but out dad isn't well and that has made me feel a bit flat so I'll try again later. I love the new signature you have designed for Princess Kristy!
