Button Balloons


After having this Up, Up & Away stamp set for almost a year now it's funny that it's suddenly caught my interest and keeps appearing on cards.  I'm just so bad at keeping up with the latest goodies - I always seem to be a beat behind.  Ah well, better using them late than never I guess.  This card is for the Embellish colours and buttons challenge.  I don't use buttons too often (although they must be breeding in the Craft Cave because there sure are a lot of them around here) so it felt good to use a few on this card. The colours are kind of masculine but I don't know if those button balloons are... the jury's still out on that one!     


Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (Blue) Bazzill Basics, (Early Espresso, Daffodil Delight) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (All from Up, Up & Away) PTI
Ink:  (Early Espresso, Certainly Celery) Stampin' Up

Die:  (Nestabilities Labels 3) Spellbinders

Buttons:  Craft supply
Gems:  Doodlebug

Fabulous card Jen! Love the label window and those button balloons! Yes, they can be masculine... remember, men hardly even look at the cards (unless they are our hubbys & know that they *have* to)!

Ow, another challenge I haven't got round too yet!!!
You've got a brilliant entry here Jen, the button balloons look perfect in the aperture :)

It's my opinion that the crafty world should run in slow motion and let all of us enjoy the products and call them "new" for just a little bit longer...wouldn't that be nice? It is also my opinion that this is a great card! So graphic and clean and really lots of fun.

Hey, there are no flowers, no butterflies... must be a suitable masculine card! Regardless, I really like the bold colours and the cutout frame.

I can so relate to being a "beat behind"! I am always behind with the latest because I always choose the WRONG stamp sets from a new catty! I buy sets ... and then see all different ones on other peoples blogs and wish I had bought them instead!!!
This is super adorable! Thanks for popping by today to say hi! Hugs xx

Boy do I enjoy reading others' comments - I want crafty time to slow down, and yeah, no flowers or butterflies equals a masculine card. lol.
I'm loving this Labels 3 shape...I feel like some new nesties might have to be in my near future.
