March Blog Hop

Morning everybody,

Its PTI blog hop today.



This month its all about buttons!  
"From borders to backgrounds, accents and embellishments, or even incorporating them
into stamp images like any of our Button Bits stamp sets.  From paper projects to home decor to jewelry
and more, the sky's the limit!  We want to see all your very best creations using buttons and the
inspiration we will gain from each other should prove to be truly enticing!"

 I love to look at buttons. They look so yum ! Beautiful colors. But it was a challenge to use them creatively other than use them on bows and on cards! I had to think about it a lot and came up with this. 

Its a bracelet! I have used Ocean Tides, Spring Moss and True black buttons to make this. Simple and easy to make. Looks awesome when you wear it.


I also made a small envelope using Sizziz die and Bitty Box Basics Spring Moss pattern paper and Studio Style Stamp set to house the bracelet! Now since this is a gift, it also needs a card. Here is the card.


I have used Aqua Mist and True Black cardstock, 2008 Bitty Box Basics Spring Moss pattern paper, Studio Style stamp set, Ocean Tides Ribbon, Spring Moss buttons and Copic markers all from PTI. Border punch from Fiskars and dies from Spellbinders nestabilities.


Here is the card and the bracelet as a gift set.


Hope you like it. I enjoyed making this. My SIL is receiving this next month for her birthday. PTI blog hop is so much fun and each month it gives me the opportunity to make something out of my comfort zone. And I am loving it. Thanks once again for stopping by. Have fun hopping. I know I am.

Have a great evening everybody!

Hugs
