Hello and welcome!
I have a summery button boutique project to share with you today for
I've taken these splendid DeNami products...
And turned them in to this sweet little project!
Now I ask you, what says summer like watermelon!! This project starts with a Styrofoam base. A simple inexpensive disk cut in half. I started with a layer of green buttons on the front and edge. Next I added a row of white buttons and finally the raspberry buttons. The next step was to cover some empty spots where the buttons meet with another more sparse layer of white and raspberry buttons. A sprinkling of black buttons was added to represent seeds. With a few spaces still showing I filled in with frosted lace and fruit punch Stickles to give it a juicy look! The new elegant word plate adorned with a fancy stick pin and matching buttons holds the perfect sentiment!
Transforming this idea into a card was easy!
I simply made my melon slice into a wedge!
This card starts with stamping the large dot swirls (love this stamp!!) twice onto a white panel. Next the melon wedge from the tropical fruit stamp set was stamped three times. I split my sentiment into three words with a little selective inking. This panel was added to a magenta card base. And finally I added the buttons to the card to make the melon wedge. I followed the same steps, adhering one row at a time, then layering a few on top of that. A wee bit of Stickles was used here as well.
This was a quick and fun summery project. I hope I've inspired you to give it a try! Have a delightful day. ~Lisa
