Button Balloons

Papertrey Ink has the cutest stamp set - Everyday Button Bits - full of stamp images that you fill in with buttons. Click on the link - aren't they adorable!?

These little balloons are for a very special someone who was due a birthday card last month. Shame on me! I don't think she reads my craft blog (shame on her!), so this should still be a surprise.

I also decided to play along with another color challenge. One of Ben's Facebook friends is a stamper/cardmaker and was invited to host a color challenge earlier this week. Hi Sarah! The color scheme is celery, rose, light blue, and black - plus the project had to be birthday related. I fudged a little and used aqua - it's just so pretty! - hopefully that's close enough. :)

Paper: My Mind's Eye (Deena's Penny Lane), Papertrey Ink (Aqua Mist).
Stamp: Papertrey Ink (Everyday Button Bits).
Ink: Stampin' Up! (Basic Gray).
Ribbon: Stampin' Up! (Certainly Celery twill, pink gingham, silver cord).
Buttons: Papertrey Ink (Aqua Mist, Spring Moss, Sweet Blush).
Punch: Stampin' Up! (3/16" corner rounder).


  1. Hi Rachel! Of course you can link my blog on yours. Thanks so much for playing along (and thanks to Ben for enabling you! hehe!). Your card is gorgeous! :) What a small world it is, too, eh?!

  2. Rachel, this is adorable! The colors are just perfect! Thanks so much for playing along!!
