Stampendous and Button Galore Finale Blog Hop

Happy Friday, crafty friends! You have just dropped in to a big blog hop finale with the folks at Buttons Galore. I hope you've had a fun week with us and have tons of inspiration for your weekend of crafting! You have probably hopped here from Louise Healy's blog and that puts you in the right spot!

Thank you to Buttons Galore for sending such great embellishments and letting me revive my love for these round dimensional craft morsels! Even if I did temporarily lose the buttons they sent me, and believe me I have overturned every scrap of paper to find them, I had tons of fun shopping for them at my local Craft Warehouse.

So the quick of the hop is you get a chance to win prizes! Here's the details on the Stampendous blog, no the graphic below doesn't tell you when you have to stop showering the design team with comments, so go to today's blog post with Stampendous for the official rules and more!

Today's card is a sneak peak! This week Stampendous has released their Spring collection of stamps and even though we haven't even passed the fall season, let's face it, we get so busy we forget to spring on spring! LOL

I'm using a stamp set that I LOVE! It's called Fronds Perfectly Clear Stamp Set and such a fun set to mix and match all those sweet images. Yes, those are all individual stamps that I arranged on my hinged stamp positioner and filled in with the circle trio stamp. So much fun!

The image was colored with my SAI watercolor pens and then smeared around with a loaded brush of water. One of my favorite things to do and forget to do, is watercolor. I stamped the sentiment perfectly with my hinged stamp positioner before framing it with black cardstock.

Then it was time for some button embellishments!
