DeNami Design ~ October Button Boutique!


Trick or treat smell my feet give me something good to eat!! Where on earth did that silly saying ever come from LOL!!  I don't know, but every year it sneaks into my head! I know that some folks would consider the Halloween staple of candy corn to be something good to eat. So this month's Button Boutique feature at DeNami Design is based on that very item. 



Wouldn't a basket or bowl full of these be a cute decoration!  I cut two pieces of muslin using a pattern that I drew. Next up I stitched and stuffed it. Using Tombow markers I colored off a section of orange and one of yellow. Then I glued on the buttons. The three colors I've used come from the DeNami Boutique Button collections of White, Tangerine, Harvest and Halloween. A cute sentiment tag tied on with twine is all this needs!



For this complimenting candy corn card I created a shaped template. A light pencil line let me line up the tiny candy corn stamp ~ so cute! After coloring them in with markers, I trimmed along the outer edge. For the card base I wrapped the twine around three times, then spread it out. This reminds me of a web! Next I stamped more candies on the diagonal and finally added the focal piece with foam tape. To the center of the focal panel I added a smaller orange candy shape with the center punched out. My sentiment was popped up with foam tape in that opening. And finally I added the yellow and white buttons.




They make a cute pair, dontcha think!



Now how about another button give-a-way!!! Anyone interested in this jar of assorted DeNami buttons? One random winner will be chosen from the comments on this post. You have until midnight on Sunday October 27th. The winner will be posted here on Monday October 28th. Please be sure I have a way to contact you or I might have to draw another winner!

I'm also linking this up at the Catered Crop Quickfire challenge!  The orange is the new black challenge. You might want to stop by the Craft Storage Ideas blog today. I have my first post up featuring a fellow stamper's craft room!

Thanks for popping in and have a great day ~Lisa
