Yep...another button card!! I told 'ya...I'm hooked!!
Here's the supplies:


Here's another easy masculine birthday card.....just used patterned paper and coordinating embellishments!
Cut a strip of the patterned paper and applied to a grey cardstock base. The banners are chipboard stickers that coordinate with the patterned paper pad. I ran a hemp cord through the pre-punched hole in the banners and adhered them to the card. The banner strip under the sentiment and the paper used for the sentiment are all from the same paper pad. The sentiment was adhered to the card with double-sided foam tape. Finally, I added a few black pearls and voila!! Easy peasy!!

Here's the supplies:


WARNING: Stamping with Papertrey Ink Button Bits can be addicting!!!! Buttons are my new friends!  Here's a couple more cards made with the Everyday Button Bits stamp set and.....yes.....BUTTONS!!

This was super simple! Cut the patterned paper in strips. Stamped the grey center with the button bit stamp inked with Versamark. Then, I heat embossed with white embossing powder. I used white embroidery floss for the button holes, then adhered to the card with glue dots. The flat-back pearls were actually an afterthought because I didn't have small enough buttons to fit in those spaces! Here's most of the supplies for this one:
Here's my second card:
I inked the button bit stamp with black ink and stamped directly onto my patterned paper. Cut the paper in strips and adhered to a white 5x7 card base. I decided not to put any floss in the buttons, because I wanted them to look like they had "eyes". The sentiment strip was adhered with 3D dots to make the sentiment stand out a bit. And the final touch...the bow!

Supplies for this card include:


I have been wanting to get one of the Papertrey Ink "Button Bit" stamp sets for soooooo long! I finally got my hands on one of them - the Everyday button bit set. This stamp set is so much fun...and for those of us who need all the help we can designed specifically for use with buttons. It even shows you where to place the buttons! ;D  The only drawback is that, now that I have my button bit stamp set, I'm going crazy for buttons!!!! I'll be posting several cards made with this stamp set and buttons. But for right now, I'll start with these two:
For this card, I stamped the bicycle "button" image onto the patterned paper. The smaller bicycle on the right is actually printed on the paper! I colored in the stamped image with light colors of Copic markers. Then I tore strips of kraft cardstock to make it look like a dirt hill and adhered it onto the patterned paper. The sentiment strip was cut from the same paper pad. The sentiment is also included in the Everyday button bit stamp set. I distressed the edges of the card with distress ink, and finally, I adhered the buttons to the card for the finishing touch. Here's some of the supplies:

This card was super dooper easy! Just stamped the Hot Air balloon image onto the patterned paper. Adhered it to a kraft cardstock base. Then, I cut a stentiment strip out of a piece of paper from the same paper pad and stamped it with a sentiment from the same Everyday button bit stamp set.
