June Papertrey Ink Blog Hop

Click here for the My Creative Time June Stamp Release Blog Hop!


It's the 25th of the month, which means it's time for the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop! Today we were asked to make something inspired by this gorgeous photo.


I really like the soft colors on the wall, and they inspired me to make my button card. Instead of using colored cardstock, I used a sponge dauber to add Hawaiian Shores ink to white cardstock. For my buttons, I die cut felt flowers using the "Flower Fusion #1" die and layered coaster and cork buttons using the "Buttoned Up #1 Die". Layering the cork on the coaster button just added a little more dimension. I sewed these all together with some rustic cream button twine.


My background was made with the "Background Basics: Twinkle" stamp set, and I found the "just a note" sentiment in the "Ribbon Tails" stamp set.
