Monica - Pickles and Ice Cream


Don't you find this a fun image?/ I certainly do and that is why I am so excited to share this with you as my inspiration post for Cute As A Button today. When I was pregnant I was so sick I craved lager (hate it in non pregnant state!) as it was cold sour and fizzy. Of course I did not drink it, but ohhhhhhhhhhhh I longed for it! This image is the fabulous Monica - Pickles and Ice Cream

Victorias July Inspiration card using You Fishers Of Men

Hi. It's Victoria stopping by today. I'm here to share my inspiration post for this month using this lovely Cute As A Button image called You Fishers Of Men. This image is actually a wonderful set of two images, a sentiment and a few props. However for this particular project I chose to just use the man boy image. You can find more wonderful images at the Cute As A Button Store.


I've coloured her with Touch Five Markers and Pencils. I have coloured the background with blue water colour pencil. I made a frame for the image which I wove string all the way around it and added to foam tape.

We'd love it if you could stop by and see the current challenges going on at the Cute As A Button Challenge Blog and a Progressive Challenge on the Cute As A Button Facebook Group.

Patty - Bat Girl!

Good day everyone! I wanted to share my card using the wonderful Bat Girl from Cute As A Button Shop!
I colored her with my Copic pens and added some Spica pen for a bit of sparkle on the bat tail and snaps. A friend had given me the paper for the background. I loved the gold sparkle and thought it would bring out the gold in Bat Girl's 
outfit. I kept my card pretty simple as I wanted to have the focus on Bat Girl!

June Inspiration by Judy

Hello!

I created an altered notebook/journal using

designer papers I liked.

added a glittered chipboard title and some gems to finish.

Including the perfect girl image to go with this guy called Pebbles.

The Sleepover

 A closer look at the cute stamp

What I love most about Cute As A Button 
Stamps is you can find one for any occasion! I recently stayed with a dear friends of mine so I could attend the Scrapbook Expo in Puyallup, Washington. It is a fun filled time and my friends make sure I have a good time no matter what. I wanted to make a thank you card for them and this is what I came up with. If you have not tried Cute As A Button Stamps I hope this card will inspire you to do so. I hope everyone is having a fun time during these summer months and I hope you are taking time to craft.

Congrats Graduate

I love this Graduate digi stamp!  I had to make a quick card for my daughter's step sister, and the fun thing about stamps is, you do not HAVE to use the entire image.  So, I just used the top half so she would fit int he circle.  Her school colors are black, gold and purple.  I used a gold card base and then used just a touch of purle and black.  Using my CTMH cardstock I embossed and sanded the purple.  I used my round dies to cut the circles.  I added some gold gems and some fancy gems and topped the entire thing off with some flowers, another flourish die and a black bow.  Oh, and I used the word die.  This took me 15 minutes to make.  Gotta love the CAS quick cards!

Flying Away With You

How to make this fun slider card:

video

To make this super easy, yet super fun slider card you need to start with an 8-1/2" x 5-1/2" piece of card stock, 3-3/4" x 5-1/8" piece of solid cardstock and a smaller piece of cardstock about 1/2" x 2-1/2".


Fold all of the score lines then figure out how you want the front of your card to look...You can cut your line anyplace on your card front for your slider.  For this card I cut it about 1" in on the left side.  Using your smaller piece of cardstock (1/2" x 2-1/2") put it through the slit, this will be your slider piece.  On the inside you will place your double stick tape so it will stick to the 3-3/4" x 5-1/8" piece of cardstock and place a pop dot on the piece that is stick out to place your image.  I'm not very good at these tutorials so I'm going to give you a link I've used...just keep in mind how she did it is flexible (as far as where you can put the slit).  Here is the card I made using Hold Tight Please.  Yes, I did make her "balloon" string a lot longer.  I added some re-purposed balloons from a store bought card, added some flowers, gems and used a fun edge punch.

April Inspiration - Judy

Hello all!
It's Judy here sharing my inspiration for this month!

I decided to create an easel card using


I started by printing and coloring the image with
Prismacolor pencils and fussy cutting. 
Next I cut a 12x12 inch piece of mediam blue card stock down
to 12x5 inches. I folded the 12 inch side in half to create a
6x5 inch card base and then folded the front in half again
to form the easel.


Next I covered the front of the card with dark blue card stock,
cut a frame out of medium blue with a Paper Artist die
and adhered to white card stock.

I adhered the white piece to the card base.
I cut accent pieces from the die set in medium blue 
and adhered to dark blue card stock and fussy cut around
to use as a background for the sentiment.


I popped the image on the white & die cut background with foam tape.
The sentiment piece was popped on the bottom of the card base.
I added some gems for the finished product!






I hope I've inspired you just a little bit today

Karen's Inspiration Post - Combining images

Today I want to share a card with you that I made using two totally different images from Fracesca's store.  I used Hosanna Joshua and Cuddly Busty Buttons for this card.  Joshua was intended to be used for the current Easter Challenge, Buttons was intended to be a summer image, however my first thought when I saw Joshua was "he'd be cute holding that frond over a sun bathing beauty", so, that is what I did with him.  She was colored using glitter gel pens, he was colored using Stampin' write markers.  I kept it pretty CAS since the two images combined were busy enough (in my opinion).  I simply added some gems that I thought brought out the dots in her hat.

I'd love to see how you can combine two totally different images and make them work!

March Inspiration by Judy

Hello everyone!
It's Judy here to share some inspiration here on the

I created a note card set using the

coordinating solid color card stocks.

and white card stock to use as the background for the images.

I embossed the white background pieces with an embossing folder
from Hot Off the Press. Then die cut circles to fit the center
of the embossing with Sizzix framelits dies.
