Button Cards - Balloons

Party balloons!  Hot air balloons!  And buttons!  I enjoyed poking through my sandwich bag of assorted buttons and then choosing the coordinating card stock colors.  These new-to-me stamps, designed for adding buttons, will also work well with my circle and button stamps and dies, so I won't need an endless supply of buttons to use.

Note:  The scanner captured my 3-D cards with out-of-focus backgrounds.  But the overall effect is true to life.
Card details:
  • Card stock is Papertrey Ink (PTI) spring rain (light blue), blueberry sky (medium blue), amethyst allure (purple), and stamper's select white.
  • Patterned papers are the bitty dot and stripe prints from PTI scarlet jewel (burgundy), melon berry (light orange), and plum pudding (purple) pattern pack (tone-on-tone prints - retired), and the bitty dot print from PTI aqua mist bitty big pattern pack.
  • Ribbon is colored with Copic marker Y38.
  • Buttons are from PTI vintage button assortments (retired), adhered with glue (Tombow green mono multi) and stitched with white #5 DMC perle cotton.
  • Images are from PTI everyday button bits (retiring 2018).  The sentiment "sending smiles" is from Hero Arts many everyday messages, stamped with PTI true black ink cube.  The sentiment "just because" is from PTI keep it simple: just because.  All are stamped with PTI true black and blueberry sky ink cubes.
