Button Wreath

Well it's countdown till the big day. And I'm getting all festive. So I'm thinking Christmas decks and the lovely Cute As A Button stamps from Sugar and Spice and came up with a Button Wreath.

I mixed red and green ink pads and paper and traditional buttons. I love red and green for Christmas. I painted a polystyrene wreath with dark green acrylic crafters paint as a base so that the gaps between the buttons did not show through.

Some buttons were stamped on patterned paper, some on plain cardstock. Some I covered with Glossy Accent and some I edged with Glamour Dust. Some I tied with thin red ribbon and some I pinned onto the wreath with pearl topped pins.

I joined together J O Y with Glossy Accent, painted them a Christmas red with acrylic crafters paint, then covered with glue and red glitter from the Pink Paislee Pixee Stix-Strawberry colour.
I hung this in my hall to take the pic and the postman just remark "bla bla bla your early but I like that"......... Gob Smacked........ Not that he liked it, but that he was here on the doorstep in light of the problems. LOL

3 and counting....

We’re at the 3rd trade show.... this year !!!!!!
To say I’m tired is an understatement, but there’s something about the shows plus adrenaline that just keeps you going.
There’s nothing better than teaching people new techniques and that’s what these shows are all about. That and having fun of course !!!
We’re all set up...this is the calm before the storm ;) we have so many new things to show this year, it makes it all the more exciting.
One of the best things about trade show shows is meeting up with buddies in the industry and even though I see Leandra and Mark (PaperArtsy) every week (we quiz together) it was great to go out with them last night.

Richard and Mark look like they’re praying, when in fact they were having a bald off 不不不不 Steve has more hair than both of them put together so as a gesture of kindness he hid his. 不不不不不  It’s now 6am, I’m ready to jump in the shower and get this day started... think of me standing from 8am to 6pm.... I hope you get to sit a lot m…

One for the Mums ...

In celebration of the fabulous Catherine Pooler Inks about to hit the store, I thought I'd pop a little card on here. Take a folded card base, I always make mine from card stock, then I know the piece on top is going to match perfectly. then cut a smaller piece and perforate the edges, you can use a perforating blade, if your trimmer has one, or there are many dies out there that do this in a snip ! Using the WOW! Embossing Powder Layered Hearts Stamps, I inked up and stamped using the Catherine Pooler Daydream, Aquatini and Skylight Inks.
Embellish with a Uni Ball Signo White Gel Pen, one of my favourites !!!
Finish off with the Mothers day sentiment from the WOW! Embossing Powder Everyday Sentiment Stamps, inked in Versafine Onyx Black, adhere with foam pads. Check out PAPERBOX for a great selection  of card stock. Thanks for looking
