Welcome! ~ Velkommen!
Here, in my little corner of bloglandia, is my blog about my crafts. Until recentley I've blogged about my card making. Now, in 2011, I'll try to do different things also, such as sewing (patchwork), knitting, crochet, baking, along with some card making...

TIOT # 45 ~ Buttons




For this week's TIOT we are to use buttons on our cards. I love buttons, so this was right up my alley!
I've used the wonderful image Cherry Blossom from the Sampler Edition #2 by Elisabeth Bell for SCACD, colored with Prismacolor pencils. It's extra fun to use buttons when you have coordinated patterned papers and buttons! Here I've used a sheet from the BasicGrey Indian Summer pad, and buttons to go with it. (These buttons are now on sale in Susana's shop!)
I used Scrapper's Floss on the buttons, I colored a piece of white with a green ProMarker.

I have a 'thing' with buttons, I can never put them on a card without a thread or a ribbon through them, it feels unfinished. I have the same 'thing' with flowers, I always have to embellish the center in some way. If I put a button or a flower on a card with out these additions, then there's something very wrong with me! *LOL* Smiley from millan.net Do you have any 'funny obsessions' like these? I'd love to know! Oh, I have one more, I have to ink on the edge of papers and die cuts, sometimes (almost never) it looks better without the inking, but it's sooooo hard not to do it!!! Smiley from millan.net *LOL* Please note, that this is how I feel about my own cards, when I see cards made by other card makers, I do not have the same feelings and thoughts. Smiley from millan.net I'm weird, yes, I know...

On the company blog Follow Your Heart you can see all the wonderful cards by the rest of the DT ladies!
