Hello. Welcome. I have buttons. Lots of buttons. They're nice aren't they? Like little bits of candy. Yummy. But I really have difficulty using them on projects! So I am really happy that I managed to get 5 of the little suckers on this tag. Yippee!!
I was inspired by Monika's card that I saw over at Stamplorations. I loved her star edge die and I thought I could make something with this Sizzix Sewing Edge die that I have had for a while and never used. That's pretty ancient NBUS!! Anyway, I cut it from brown crinkly paper that looks a bit faux wood. Then I cut it again from silver foil and paper pieced the scissors and bobbin.
I cut the cotton reel from some real wood veneer and wrapped some lace around it. The stamps are from TH Haberdashery set, stamped on brown handmade paper and embossed. The paper kinda sucked in the embossing powder so I ended up with a matt finish that actually suits the distress style stamps. I mounted the sewing panel on a blue tag that I stencilled with Storm Sky distress ink through Stamplorations Retro Circle stencil. I added a needle with some blue thread, two wood and three tiny plastic buttons and a lace tie.
