My post today was made for the Splitcoaststampers Inspiration challenge and the inspiration site was Button Craft Pinterest site.  I’ve had a large supply of tiny red buttons in my stash since I first began paper crafting but have rarely used them.  I decided I would put them to good use today as the flowers on my tree and fence line flower garden. Here’s what I came up with.

I started by cutting two Rectangle Frames and attaching them to the card base with mounting tape. I cut out the Grand Alder Tree and Small Alder Tree using white cardstock and colored them with Copic markers.  I attached the two trees together with mounting tape and rolled glue dots.  I attached the buttons to the tree branches with glossy accents and then attached the tree to the frames and card base with mounting tape and rolled glue dots.

I attached the Woodgrain Fence to the frames with mounting tape and attached the Grass Border and Small Grass Border to the fence with glossy accents.  I attached buttons to pieces of the Leaves and Stems with glossy accents and tucked them in behind the grass borders.  I finished by adding a few white butterflies from the Memory Box Butterfly Delights set to soften the scene.

  1. Congratulations to Laura!!
    Those are the cutest buttons Kittie on your tree scene. Always love your color choices as well as the dies you use to create your beautiful scenes. Glad I
    was finally able to order those frames and some of the colors of paper you use.
    Missed out on two sales because of out of stock items but this time I got lucky and got them. Im hoping the bone folder will be better than the martha stewart one I have with my score board.

  2. Eileen, if you purchased the Teflon bone folder you are going to love it. It is wonderful. It glides across the cardstock so easily and it never leaves a shine. I’m glad you were able to get some of your wish list during the sale.

  3. Well Miss kittie, you are so very very clever…. who’d have thought to use buttons for flowers… You of course. lol. Now I gotta go find a bunch of flower buttons…. lol Thank you for sharing your wonderful creativity…

  4. Good evening, Kittie. Clever gal. Those buttons on the tree is a super idea. I love it. a truly different flower, with lots beauty and not misplaced; buttons usually do that when not needed….love it….have a good day.

  5. LOVE this card! The framing behind your scene looks absolutely COOL and all of those little red buttons, round and flowers, are fab. TERRIFIC! 🙂
