New Release At Bugaboo

It is a New Release Day over at Bugaboo Stamps " Meet Mildred". Our resident Grannie. I love how Jodie describes her"The one who can get by with saying anything because shes a grandma."
This is the first card I made with the new image. The image is I'm In Shape. This is how I feel. This is a Tri Fold Card. It is very hard to photograph this to show how it looks open.

I"m So Far Behind... again sounds like me. I love these colors and the buttons turned out really cool. Aren't these images cute?
I am also entering this card into the Pile It On Challenge for this week, which is to "Tie It Around" use at least 3 ribbons. and the second Challenge is for Dare You 2 Digi Stamp. use buttons and of course you have to use a Digi Stamp. About those buttons...


I found these buttons in the craft section at WallMart when I was grocery shopping last Sat. I just loved the shapes and textures. So I used Tim Holtz Alcohol inks to color the buttons. I also colored some glossy cardstock to match which I will use on another project.


Here is a close up of the finished buttons. Just think of the possibilities. By request I am working on a Tutorial on how to do these buttons and decorating paper and images with alcohol ink. Check back a little later. Okay? I have to go buy some more buttons so I have a stash.



Have a great day. I'm off to work on projects.
