Butterfly Tag

Hi, everyone!  This is Diana, and for this week's Button and Bows challenge at Classy Cards 'n Such, I made a little tag for my card.


I just love butterflies and I made this one out of Vellum for a nice airy look.  For my tag, I dabbed Tim Holtz Peacock Feathers distress ink and dabs of Antique Bronze and Brushed Pewter Distress Stain on my craft sheet, spritzed it with water and then swirled my tag over the mixed inks (video tutorial here).  I even stained my gray ribbon and thread with the brushed pewter for some added shimmer.


 I popped up the tag with Foam Pads, and adhered the button and bow with 1/4" Scor-tape over my embossed background.  For a final touch of shimmer, I used my new Wink of Stella Glitter Pen over the top layer of my butterfly.  I just love how easy and quick it is to use the glitter pen.

I hope you get a chance to play along.  Thank you so much for looking!


Your card stands out so pretty! Thanks Diana!

Count Your Blessings

Hello, friends, Mindy here today with a card for this week's challenge at the Classy Cards 'N Such blog, #42 Buttons and Bows!


I started this card by embossing an A2 size sheet of card stock, with the Daisy Flourish embossing folder, sending it through my Cuttlebug machine. I then took the Memory Box designer stencil Garden Stems, and added Dreamweaver Embossing Paste to use as stems for my button and bow flowers. 

To give the background some definition, I highlighted the embossing with a white pen, a touch of Gold Glitter and some Cantaloupe colored Liquid Pearls. It was then set aside to let dry.

I then took some ribbon, and made three small single bow flowers and adhered a single gold colored small Medallion Sparklers button in the centers. The bows were then adhered to the background at the ends of the stems to look like a bouquet of flowers, with a double loop bow tied at the bottom of the bouquet. 

I also stamped a saying, Count Your Buttons and Blessings, on a banner strip and used  Joy! Foam Pads Large to give the banner some dimension and adhered it to the front of the card. 

The whole time I was working on this card, the song "Button and Bows" sung by Doris Day was going through my head.  It was a little before my time, but parts of the song were familiar to me, and those parts kept repeating over and over all day.

Your card is so pretty! Thanks Mindy!

Happy Thoughts

Hi, Shirley here today!  Our challenge for this week - we are to add some buttons and bows. Classy Cards 'n Such has a lot of pretty lace and ribbon for  your beautiful bows.


I used the Spellbinders A2 Filigree Delight for my decorative frame.

I used the Spellbinders Scallop Ovals along with a regular oval die from the  Spellbinders A2 Filigree Delight and stamped the sentiment from the  Impression Obsession Anytime Sentiments on the top oval.

I had these little black card stock buttons in my stash  and put pink card stock behind them.  I added Pearls to my frame and a black lace bow.

We invite you to join us for this challenge.  We would love to see your card with buttons and bows.

A very pretty card with a great sentiment. Thanks Shirley!
