Here's todays 2nd post!
The challenge over at La La Lands this week is to use Buttons! If you are anything like me then you have lots floating around in your room/supply so you have no excuse not to join in this week!
I've kept with the Christmas theme but you can chose whatever theme you like and you could be a lucky winner!
I added a few other challenges along the way.
Truly Scrumptious gave me the sketch with an option of a "Sparkly Flourish"
Paper Cutz had an "Anything Goes" theme
Handfull of Stamps wanted "No Plain Jane Ribbon"
Paper Maniac wanted you to use a fancy cardstock so I chose the metallicas by American Crafts
Allsorts wanted to see Buttons and so did Anns Creative Nook
Crazy 4 Challenges want to see you get "Punch Happy"
Saturday Spotlight want to see Hats!
Stamp, Scrap and Doodle had an open Christmas theme as did Creative Card Crew and Practical Scrappers too.
Corrosive wanted a Red and Green Christmas card
365 Cards Day 275 wanted Red and Green too and so did Cupcake Craft
I chose to use Winter LaLa this week and to make her extra Festive I added a pom pom to her hat!
I colored her with Copic's and added Prismacolor gold pen for her buttons.
I used Jess James mini button to edge the scalloped oval Nestie that she is popped up on.
I used American Crafts foil cardstock for her mat and the side panel, I love this cardstock and think it adds so much to a Holiday card.
The dp is from the Peppermint Forest Stack from Joanns.
The border punch is Deco Fan by Martha Stewart.
I made the rosette from ribbon from Michaels "Celebrate It" ribbon from this years selection. The sentiment is from this years "Christmas Crafts" selection at Hobby Lobby.
The inside is a decorated message mat.
Here I hope you can see I cut out Lala after coloring her and popped her up for dimension. I love how these stamps are designed to have enough design to make them fun and interesting to color but they are easy to cut out giving you more options for your card.
So please go and grab and a button or 5 and join in this weeks challenge at La La Lands
