Bombshell Hump Day Hop

Whose Got the Button??? Our fearless challenge leader, Angela (aka Inky Button) has challenged us this week to create a card or project using buttons. Hmm- Inky BUTTON? A BUTTON challenge?? Coincidence?!? :)

Buttons are everywhere- they're on your shirt, on your jacket, on your pants...and they're on our cards!! Here is the card that I created using buttons:


The card base is textured More Mustard cardstock. The image is stamped onto GP110 cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored using my beloved Copic Markers. I sponged around the edges using Real Red ink, then layered it onto Basic Black. While rummaging through my embellishment box for buttons, I found this forgotten-about red Magic Mesh and thought it would be perfect for this card. I found some red and yellow buttons and using craft glue dots, attached them to a panel of Basic Black and textured More Mustard cardstocks. I stamped "Hot Rod Classic", then punched it out using SU's Modern Label punch, and sponged around the edges using Real Red ink. I used pop dots to attach it to the card. Originally, I had planned on using the buttons to make a traffic light, but, alas, I had no green buttons...

This was a fun challenge and I think I'll use this card for my brother's birthday in January. He's a classic, just like this car! :)

Now, make sure to hop on over to the other Bombshell Design Team members blogs and see how they used their buttons!!

  6. I adore this card. It brings such warm memories of ages past, when times were simpler, not so crazy busy and as a population we were more carefree and relaxed. It also reminds me of the countless male relatives who were obsessed with cars. Thank you for putting a gentle smile on my face today.
