New Papertrey Ink Cards

Just wanted to make a quick post with 2 cards using the new set from papertrey Ink called Everyday Button Bits. I love this set! It's such a great idea. The stamps come with a space for you to place the button of your choice ... so this first card shows the hot air balloons. All you have to do is stamp the image, then add your buttons to finish it off. Perfect!

And this one is 2 stamps of birds. You add the buttons (and a little embroidery floss black eye through one of the holes). Then you add a wing and you get these cute little birds. My friend Sharon also got this set, you can see what she did with hers here.

I want you to click on the birds to make the picture larger and look at the grass. This is soooo clever! My friend Moe showed me how you can trim the edge of the 1/4" grosgrain ribbon to make a thread to decorate your buttons. Such a clever idea. You can then colour-match your projects, you can also pull the ribbon apart to get a frayed look ~ another friend, Maria, took the discarded piece and made the grass under the birds' feet. How stinkin' clever is THAT!
