Day 2 of Challenge with Dawn McVey

It’s Day 2 of my fun Challenge Week with Dawn McVey. I adore this girl so very much… and her cards. Her card yesterday was aMAZing.

Today we will both use the Hero Arts Simply Handmade and Papertrey Ink Button Boutique stamps with the color pink.

I decided to make an envelope bag to hold some embellishment goodies to give to a new crafty friend. Yep – that little bag is made from an envelope and is so easy to do. (Click HERE to see a great video my friend Lisa did showing an envelope bag creation.) I love how it is the perfect size for a stamp, an ink pad or a few crafty embellishments…

Inside the little bag are these handmade treats…

I love how the images on the Hero Arts set fit perfectly in the Papertrey pieces. Oh, and I made the clay flowers and light pink buttons. (I will finally get around to sharing a video on this next week.) The others I bought on Etsy…

For these pieces, I use Jenni Bowlin Cotton Candy Ink, Hero Arts Latte Chalk Ink and some fun textured Bazzill cardstock. So fun to create.

Now be sure to head over to Dawn’s blog to see what masterpiece she has created.

See you tomorrow.

    Jennifer: I absolutely love your interpretation of the button images from Papertrey. I already have those and have been making some up for myself – but I didn’t have the cool backgrounds you used from Hero Arts. It really makes a difference in the final product. Thanks for the inspiration.

    Love these Sewing Stamps, so cute. Thank you so much for the link to Lisa gift bags. Too Cute.

  36. I love this stamp set! I have the little card of buttons Nicole gave me at our scrapping weekend sitting just above my Accucut machine so I can look at it every day. :-)

  37. You made these two sets work together so perfectly Jannifer, you always create such amazing pieces. I assume you did some masking here? I already have Button Boutique but Simply Handmade has been in and out of my Two Peas bucket for quite some time. I think it is time to get it and then try out your awesome button cards! Have a great day.
