All you need is love

I couldn't resist playing with PTI's Everyday Button Bits set again, this time using heart shaped buttons to make flowers. I used an older sketch from Keesh and made it into a card for a friend of mine who is getting married in 2 weeks.

Not your typical wedding card, but I love the little heart-shaped buttons. And here I was thinking I wouldn't be using this sentiment at all. Have I mentioned previously how much I love this set? :)

I made a card for a friend's 25th birthday and he had a cake in the shape of a pirate ship, so I thought it'd be fun to make him a pirate-themed card. I borrowed the SU! stamp set Ahoy Matey (retired) from a friend and it was fun using it, particularly the matching wheel.

I was colouring the little fellow in using my aquapainter and used a black SU! marker to simulate stubble on his face. In my impatience, I didn't think to let the cardstock dry and the ink bled into the paper, making him look like he had fungus growing on his face! It really bothers me (I'm soooooo obsessive compulsive sometimes), but I didn't have the time to make another one. Still, this set is so cute. :)

Anyway, I'm off to open all the windows in an attempt to cool the house down! The heat really saps all the energy out of you. Thanks for looking!

  1. I still need to get the button bits set! Your card is so pretty, and it really is a versatile set.

    Your pirate card is cute, too. I don't think the bleeding around the stubble at all detracts from the card!
