A bunch of mixed cards

 Typically when I made cards, you can tell that I make several at a time. Sometimes I use the same papers, or the same stickers, usually something ties them together. But yesterday when I was creating, they all came out totally different. Some were stamped, one is a shaped card, and they all use different colors. The one thing they do have in common- buttons. You know I love them, I use them like crazy.

First card, I have this Inkadinkado set that I just wanted to play with. I'd only used the one butterfly stamp on it- and wanted to use something else - so I pulled out the ladybug looking bug stamp and did this strip of stamped bugs, I colored the dots with a sharpie pen, then stamped a couple more and fussy cut out the bugs. Those I foam dotted up and then I added a black and red button on their backs.

Papers are red ( bobunny, Black graph (reminisce)
stickers are doodlbug border strips
letters are glitter (reminisce) and red (bobunny)


  Next, I made this cute cupcake card. I took a card blank, turned it over and drew a cupcake shape, then cut it out, leaving a small part of the fold intact. I then paper pieced the cupcake liner, frosting and cherry.
 I stamped the greeting and put that on a strip and then added these cute Stickopotamus flowers I'd had forever. The cherry is a Bobunny button, I used hemp to tie on the cherry stem.

Paper- Bobunny Dot red and pink, corrugated paper unknown.
Buttons- Bobunny
Flowers- Sticko
letter stickers- Reminisce
stamp- Ki Memories





Next is this rather graphic looking card. I used a diecut scallop strip over the graph paper, added a strip of kraft paper, and then put on this button border.I added the silk flower with button in the middle, then stamped and fussy cut the birds. I printed the greeting and put it on banner style. Not sure I like this one, but it was a break into a new style for me.
Paper- Reminisce graph
Buttons- Bobunny
silk flowers- craft supply
scallop border- Making Memories
stamp- KI memories




Lastly for today, this background stamp is one of my new favorites!  I stamped it three times in each color, cut them out and put them on white cardstock. Two of them I stamped and cut extra, then foam dotted them for dimension. I used some kraft background for the card, and stamped in white with a bobunny stamp.I finished it with a bit of twine, adding my buttons to the middle of all the blocks.
