something else i'm never sorry to see is a new ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ prompt! and i think this one's pretty awesome: create a holiday card which incorporates buttons, brads, or eyelets! i have loads of all of the above, partially because--it must be said, a bit sheepishly--i am somewhat creatively impaired as to using them in interesting ways! thus i am excited to see what everyone else does this time... and then i will have a whole bunch of new ideas to try out in future! :) :) :)
in the meantime, here's what i did this week:
(transparency: hambly; patterned paper: best creation & paper co with scraps of... bo bunny, pink paislee, doodlebug, prima, glitz and maybe a few more i've forgotten; letters: american crafts; ink: colorbox; poinsettia die: boss cut; adhesives: tombow monorunner, 3m foam tape)
yep, it's the old "buttons as the centers of flowers" trick... one of my favorites! ok, ok, it's pretty much the way i use buttons 99% of the time! in this case the lovely purple ones were on a vintage-ish card that came from... ummmmmmm... somewhere... (my mom, possibly?!) and the poinsettias were leftover from another project last december so this was quite a quick and easy thing to whip up!
but now i am longing for all my lovely belles to show me how it SHOULD BE done, so please link up your button, brad and eyelet-festooned cards at ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ between now and wednesday, february 22nd as an educative service on my behalf, ok??! thanks, darlings!!!
