CardMaker Magazine ~ Imaginisce Blog Hop!

Hi Everyone!

Welcome to the CardMaker Magazine - Imaginisce blog hop!

Imaginisce was super generous (Thank you Imaginisce!) and sent CardMaker lots of product to share with their designers.
We are all going to be showing you projects today made with those products.

For my card, I made "flower center" buttons out of Imaginisce's pretty "All Kinds of Happy" designer paper collection that I already had on hand. The other designer papers on this card are Imaginisce also. I LOVE their fun papers!

How did I make the buttons you ask? ;)
With the AMAZING i-top Tool and 22mm i-top Brad Daddies.
I used their 22mm i-top Punch to punch out the cupcakes and the sentiment from some of their designer papers. I created the brad buttons then added some gloss medium to make them shine. :)
The loops are made out of seam binding from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
The pearls are from Want2Scrap.

I also made a quick little pin using fabric and an i-top Badge Daddie.
I was going for a retro-vintage look so I put some mulberry roses and some Want2Scrap Sage Green Pearls on the pin, then added green glitter and several coats of gloss medium to give it a kind of "plastic/tacky" kind of look. :)

The i-top Badge Daddies are really cool because the pin back is already attached! :)

Here are the other girls who are playing along in the hop.
I am sure they will have some super fun projects to share with you!

Thanks so much for stopping by.

I love your plastic/tacky pin. I don't think it's "tacky" at all, though. Love the machine stitching on your card, too.

Melanie said...

how fun is that pin? So, so cool!
