This week the Bombshell girls challenge is

Who's Got The Button?

They hold up our pants, keep our shirts closed, and yes, they even add a little extra something to our cards. This week's challenge is to use buttons: shell buttons, faux buttons, sparkly buttons, panic buttons...any type of button you please. The more buttons the merrier in fact, just make sure you use a button

I love those button embellishments by Jenni Bowlin and really wanted to have a go at making my own Bombshell version!

I used 2 quickutz button dies one large and 2 small:

I cut buttons from light chipboard and from Making Memories Ledger paper and stuck the ledger paper over the chipboard to make the buttons.

I then stamped my Bombshells onto my buttons.

For a vintage look I coloured the stamped images with Sepia shades of Copic pens: E00,E31,E33,E35

...and then you have your own Bombshell button embellishments! I'm going to use mine for layouts and cards and make the larger button into a lapel badge!

Now hop off to the next blog and happy crafting!

I love those buttons. I will nee to try it out. Although there is one button I hate, the easy button from Staples. My son has one and it's very annoying after about 20 presses. LOl! Love your button though.

I love the antique, classic look of these homemade buttons. Can't wait to see them on a card or other project.

Gabby said...

Katie those are gorgeous! Love them! I'm gonna have to pull a copy cat one of these days! ;)

Kas said...

These are way cool, and I will definately be using this technique soon!

Would like to give this a try if thats okay.

You've just upped the game! Fantastic idea. A friend of mine just got a button punch and I've been pinching it at crops ever since. But if QK make dies, then I'll just get those! Thanks for the heads-up!! --Sy.

Jessie said...

These have to be the coolest buttons ever! Thanks for sharing :)

I'm afraid I have no son to gain inspiration from - will a daughter do instead? (LOL I'm being cheeky - your second or third sentence provides the clue *snort*)
