Waltzingmouse Stamps February Blog Waltz: Hopping With Buttons!


Two posts in one day? Yep, I am on fire!  Seeing that there is already smoke coming off my fingers from crafting and blogging, I thought I'd pop in one more post for the day.  I made the following card for the Waltzingmouse Blog Waltz which is all about buttons.  Mind you, I haven't gone button mad in the following card by any stretch, but sometimes less is more, right?  I have also placed a link to my other post I put up today of a card that I think may also qualify for the WMS blog waltz and it is loaded with gorgeous real vintage buttons!  Thanks so much for waltzing by.  You've made my day!



Card number #2.

Supplies used for my Vintage Rose With Button Study Card:


  • Stamps:  Waltzingmouse Stamps Roses In Bloom, Papertrey Ink Mega Mixed Messages, Hero Arts Lace Background Designer Woodblock
  • Paper:  Basic Grey Curio, Jovial and Kraft, Papertrey Ink Scarlet Jewel and SS C/S
  • Ink:  SU Chocolate Chip, Versafine Onyx and Olympia Green, Memento Sahara Sands, Distress Ink in Tea Dye, Vintage Photo, and Fired Brick
  • Accessories:  Paper Doily, Medium Sullivans Tag Punch, Tim Holtz Ornamental Bigz Die, PTI Bakers Twine, Jute, Uniball Gold Gel Pen, Tonic Edge Distresser, and one sweet Vintage Button!
