CC with Blueprints--All Buttoned Up

Buttons are a fun embellishment and this month, the MFT Creative Team
was challenged to use the button elements from Blueprints on our projects.

I began by painting swatches of Peerless Watercolors on a sheet of watercolor 
card stock with a waterbrush. After it was completely dried, I diecut the button
elements from Blueprints 8, 14, and 18 from the different colors.

To make the buttons pop, I adhered them to a top folding Black Licorice
card base, and white embossed a sentiment beneath them.

For more inspiration, visit the MFT blog to see the projects from the designers
who took on the button challenge. Thanks for stopping by!


  1. What gorgeous buttons! Your DIY Peerless swatches are perfect for this! Brilliant, Donna!

  2. And not a speck of stray embossing powder to be seen. Awesome card, Donna.

  3. So pretty! Love how the colors pop.

  4. Awesome card..striking in fact. What a great idea you used to make the swatches then die cut. I'm going to case this card. I love it.

  5. Donna your buttons are gorgeous done in Peerless I still use the samples you send to me to try out. Love this!

  6. What an amazing colourful card! Is it just me, or do I see "eyes" looking back at me from each of those darling buttons? LOL Maybe just my imagination running wild ...
