the paper players - clean & simple with buttons! (pp87)

Hi Stampers! Sorry I have been lacking in posting the last few days! I had a full plate this week, so not much to time to PLAY in my stamp room! I did hold my monthly card making night last Thursday (such a great group of stampers!), so I will post those cards soon!

Today it's time for a fun new Paper Players challenge! Nance has come up with a fun twist on a clean and simple challenge featuring buttons! Buttons are such a great way to add some pizzazz to a card and you must go check out the cards the design team came up with...they are fabulous!


As the challenge is clean and simple this week, I kept my card just that trying to keep lots of white space. I used a sketch from the Clean & Simple Stamping blog from a couple of months ago. With the button aspect of the card, I just couldn't wait to pull out my Button Buddies stamp set. I don't use this set often enough! I just love the colors Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive together, so I kept with just these two colors to make everything pop off the white!


I decided I wanted more dimension to each of the flowers, so I cut out each layer and popped them up with Dimensionals. This definitely isn't a card I would have at one of my events for my stampers to create, but it's definitely a fun one to give for the wow factor!


Stamp Set: Button Buddies, Perfect Words (hostess exclusive set)
Paper:
Whisper White, Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry
Ink: Rich Razzleberry, markers - Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry
Accessories: Brights Buttons (Old Olive & Rich Razzleberry), Dimensionals, Mini Glue Dots

Tools: Paper Snips

Come on over to The Paper Players to check out the rest of the design team and to join in the fun!!

Heidi love your multi layered flowers and the color combo is wonderful for spring! Hug.
PS: I am intriqued at your last name too! My mother's maiden name was Boos! Wonder if we're related? Not a very common name or spelling. hugs.

Heidi love this fresh CAS card! The layering adds so much dimension and I love how the two end flowers are over the edge of the mat. Also what a great colour combo; reminds me of the Cottage Wall DSP from a few years ago.
