STARRING YOU IN COLORS!



This is one of the cards we made at our monthly Card Club this month. It features a "button" made by layering pieces of cardstock that have been punched out. This was a technique that was shared in this month's Stampin' Success. If you are a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, you know this is one of the great perks Stampin' Up! provides its demonstrators. Each month demonstrators receive a magazine that is packed with ideas, tips, information and samples. This little magazine is just one of the awesome things Stampin' Up! provides its demonstrators, and I love it!! You can still take advantage of the great discounts being offered this month when you become a demonstrator. Contact me, and I will be happy to fill you in on more of the perks Stampin' Up! provides, as well as the benefits of becoming part of my Stampin' Up! family.

For this card I combined Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry and Melon Mambo cardstock. These are all In Colors for the 2009-2010 Idea Book and Catalog. I also used the Starring You stamp set, which is one of the stamp sets being offered FREE with Sale-A-Bration until the end of this month!

The "buttons" were made by punching six small stars from Melon Mambo cardstock. I then adhered them together with Crystal Effects and let them dry between a couple of catalogs overnight. You know what this means, right? You can actually make buttons in the size and shape of any of the awesome Stampin' Up! punches you have (or NEED to order). I can't wait to try my hand at some flower "buttons" next!
