The Everything ABC's blog hop letter "B"

If you are looking for the Art Philosophy "It's your birthday" blog hop, go HERE.

For this hop we will be featuring the letter B. This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment. Whatever the crafter has chosen as their B element will be featured in their post.

If you came from Lucy Kelleher ~ Love 2 Create then you're on the right track!


I made a card using buttons! I stamped the stems using stamp set C1441 Affection, in Topiary ink. 
I used buttons on various colors for the flowers, using bakers twine for the centers. For the sentiment, I used stamp set D1283 Say It In Style, and stamped it using hollyhock ink. I used liquid glass to glue down my buttons, just to make sure they stayed down.

Supply List:
Z1370 Pink assortment buttons
Z1372 Green assortment buttons
clear button and yellow button from my stash
Z1702 Bakers twine, Paradise assortment
D1283 Say It In Style
C1441 Affection
Z2128 Hollyhock
Z2155 Topiary
