Button Flower Cards

Today I am sharing three cards designed by Aly Schilling, my upline, for us to make at our recent Stamp Fest with the Heartfelt Stampers team of demonstrators. Each uses the Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer Punch from the Summer Mini Catalog with a button for the flower center. The stamp sets are also from the Summer Mini Catalog.

For this first card, the stamp Hello Blossoms was colored with Baja Breeze, Elegant Eggplant and Wild Wasabi Stampin' Write Markers before stamping on card stock. The new Baker's Twine is great for running through buttons and tying tiny bows. The flower consists of images 1 and 3 from the punch, using Elegant Eggplant and Baja Breeze card stock.


The card below features Beyond the Garden Designer Series Paper along with Daffodil Delight and More Mustard card stock. Images 1 and 2 were punched using Daffodil Delight and Early Espresso card stock to form the flower, topped with a More Mustard button and Baker's Twine. The Bold Blossom stamp set provides the shadow of a butterfly and the greeting.


The Touch of Kindness stamp set provides the stamped image and the words for this card. Only image 3 of the punch is used to create the flower itself from Marina Mist card stock. Certainly Celery and More Mustard area the other colors used in this design. Note: Dimension is added to this card by cutting a piece of Whisper White card stock slightly smaller than the card front and then attaching it with Stampin' Dimensionals.
