InStyle Stamps Wednesday Challenge ~ Buttons




Time for another InStyle Stamps Wednesday Challenge.  Our challenge this week is to make a card or project with BUTTONS

We hope you will join us for a chance to receive an InStyle Stamps digital image of your choice. Please be sure to use an ISS image on your card and upload it to the Mister Linky on the ISS blog by 12:00 p.m. on Tuesday, August 11th

My BUTTON  card sample for you today is made using one of the newest additions to the ISS collection.   Meet Seamstress Cynthia ~ scheduled for release on the ISS blog on August 28th!  Since she is another from the new Fairy collection, I added lots of gold stickles and some Shimmerz in the color Sunny.  




The bright yellow paper is from the new Basic Grey lemonade collection.  I was pretty excited to find a set of the new Martha Stewart edge and corner punches to create the “loop” edging around the image.  After I saw it on a card made by my friend, the mega talented Rachel Jakes, I loved it!   Rach is actually giving a set away as “candy” on her blog.

The sentiment is computer generated, and I thought it would work well for an “I’m sorry” card.   Unfortunately, we all need those “once in awhile”.



Thanks for stopping by today.  Hope you’re having a great week!

Love the new punches! Are they easy to use? I am debating on getting some…just wondering if you have to have your paper cut to a specific size in order for them to work. Thanks for the info!
