Two Paper Divas - Cute as a Button

Hello Friends,

Today I went all girly on you using an
adorable stamp set from Two Paper Divas
called Sweet Notions.  You can create little button
panels that are perfect for storing vintage
buttons, or like me, a baby or little girl card.
There are so many ways to use this stamp set.

I noticed the perfect sketch for

Check it out:

I cut out my card base and paper panel using the 
Femme Frames set from Mama Elephant.  
The scallops and stitching are such a sweet addition.  
Next, I heat embossed in white the frame
around my buttons.  It delivered a raised edge
and a nice little shimmer.  

All of my felt button flowers are dies from Paper Trey Ink.  
I just mixed and matched colors and button designs.  
Adding felt to a card creates such a 
wonderful texture and pop of color.
Finally, I couldn't resist adhering
 a little twine bow to top it off.

I've also entered my card into the
CAS on Sunday Challenge - #53 Girl Power

It's just a girly kinda day I tell ya!

Spring Coffee Loving Card Makers Blog Hop!

Happy Friday!

Time to think Spring with the
Thank you Amy for the invite!
Isn't she the best?  

It's the perfect day to settle in with a cuppa
and take a gander at all the amazing talent out there.
I so love being inspired by you all!

My coffee card was inspired by the latest

I've been itching to use the set
Perk Up from MFT, so this hop came
at just the perfect time.

I began by stamping the sentiment 
"Something to perk up your day" 
all over the front of my white card base.
I did this by repeatedly stamping off first
 and then stamping onto my base.
Next, I inked up some aromatic steam in a pattern.
Take my word for it....the scent is divine.  :)
Finally I stamped the coffee cups in bright 
Spring colors.  The small cups were
stamped, fussy cut and adhered.
For a little sparkle and pizazz, 
some sequins to top it off.

Oops!  Almost forgot!
 Did I mention there are some
super duper prizes along the way on the hop? 
Many of the companies that I love are supporting the hop!

The hop runs all week so you have plenty
of time to link up a card or just sit back 
and admire.   Be sure to leave
some love along your way!
