Stamped buttons and some VERY exciting news!!

My very talented Friend Petra made some fabric covered buttons a while ago using Graphics Fairy images which she had printed onto fabric and I have been wanting to try something similar for ages. I bought some cheap plastic buttons that can be covered and a cheap handkerchief and set to work.

I used Hero Arts stamps stamped with Stampin Up ink and added little gems. I stamped the sentiment first and then covered the button. I stuck the little flower and heart stamps onto my thumb to pick up the ink and stamp it on to the buttons. Using your thumb rather than a block allows you to curve the stamp around the edges of the button. I added a gem as a finishing touch.
I found out some very exciting news last night, I have made the DT on the Pollycraft blog!
I love Paula's images and I am so excited to have been chosen! I can't wait to get started working with her fabulous images :-)
Have a lovely Tuesday!
