Buttons & Pumpkins

I have absolutely loved looking at all the stunning fall projects this way by our DT Ladies and also have been completely wowed by your challenge entries in our current Beary Sweet Challenge, "Happy Fall Y'All." Keep it up! You have an entire week still to enter and we'd love to see what gorgeous autumn creation you are working on.

Our challenge this week was to add buttons to our Happy Fall projects and I decided I wouldn't add just a button or two, but a whole barrel full!

Or at least an entire pumpkin full! The center of my card is a pumpkin made from buttons.

To start with I found a pumpkin pattern, (you can get your own copy by clicking here), traced it onto Bo Bunny Double Dot Burnt Orange cardstock and cut it out. Then I used Tacky Glue and adhered all shades and sizes of orange buttons to my pumpkin. This is a little tricky and I found it worked the best to just put glue on a small area, find buttons to fit and then move on to the next area, adjusting as I went. Once my pumpkin was dry I could then mount it to my card.

For my card I used some of the awesome new papers from Authentique's Glowing line. I love all their 6 x 6 paper pads, make sure to check out these new arrivals in the Beary Scrap store. I made my sentiment by applying letter stickers, inking over the top with an ink dauber and then removing the stickers.

Supplies Used:
Bo Bunny Cardstock-- Burnt Orange, Coffee, Clover
Authentique Glowing 6 x6 paper pad
SEI Windsor paper-- Farleigh
Seam Binding-- Key Lime
Color Box Fluid Chalk-- Chestnut Roan
Pink Paislee Expressions Whimsies Alphabet-- Chocolate
Fiskars Border Punch
Aleene's Quick Dry Tacky Glue
Lots of miscellaneous buttons!

I hope the beautiful fall colors and weather find you wherever you are and continue to inspire you to create this weekend. Happy crafting!
