Blogger’s Challenge Week 19 – Embellishments – Brads, Eyelets, Buttons, Hardware

This week’s Blogger’s Challenge was to use embellishments such as brads, eyelets, buttons, and hardware.  Since "bling" wasn’t mentioned, I decided to go with a distressed look.


Stamps:  Looks Like Spring

Card Stock/Paper:  Blue Bayou, Wild Wasabi, Basic Grey (patterned paper)

Inks:  Chocolate Chip, Blue Bayou, Wild Wasabi

Accessories:  Sponge Dauber, Hodgepodge Hardware (Antique Brass), Spiral Punch, Ticket Corner Punch, one of my favorite tools – the Cutter Kit, and Basic Grey buttons and ribbon

Thanks for looking!


  1. Great card…love the colors you chose and the way that you used buttons for your flower centers. Wonderful challenge card.

  2. Wow – That is amazing, Anita. I would nothave thought to put those stamps on a distressed piece, but they work so well!

  3. Love the buttons on the flowers and the colors you chose. I seldom use buttons so it’s nice to see a way in which they can be used.
