Buttons and ribbon.

Hi everyone, I was excited to be asked to guest design for The Retro Rubber Challenge, after winning a challenge there recently.
To play along you just need to use a stamp that is at least a year old, I have lots of those, as I'm sure we all do! So I hope you can play along.

This challenge theme is buttons.


I don't have any button dies, stamps or embossing folders, so used the real thing on my card.
I have an old tin full of buttons that bring back lots of memories!

I coloured two with some alcohol markers just to make the colours match.

The flowers were stamped, embossed, fussy cut then I coloured them with tombow markers.
I've had the stamp for years, though there is no date on the packet.
(There is a youtube video using the set dated 2012 though!)

I added some diecut greenery and a sentiment sticker and a snippet of ribbon for some extra colour.

I'm linking up to these challenges:

AAA Birthday
As well as the 3D buttons, I diecut some additional tags to layer underneath to lift the top tag off the base, and the flowers are popped up with 3d foam squares.

Allsorts, something beginning with B.....Buttons!

This is very pretty and so striking Cathy and love the HC stamped and brightly coloured flowers with the die cut leaves, and the buttons make great looking centres, and the hearts embossed on the tag are just perfect. x

This is beautiful, Cathy! The bright pop of the red flowers against the dark background is amazing. In fact, the dark background is a genius stroke. Thanks so much for joining us as Guest Designer at Retro Rubber.

Great to have you as GDT with us this time at Retro Rubber Cathy, I LOVE your card, the tag and the beautiful flowers pop off of the black card base. I love the embossing on your tag too. Great idea to use the buttons as flower centers, hope to see you in the RR gallery again soon. Claire Dt
