Papertrey Button Cards


Today I am posting some cards I created with Papertrey Ink's new button card stamps and Basic Grey's new Luscious collection.

All of the cards were stamped with Momento Ink.  I think the PI stamps work so well with this ink.  As you might already know, I use Momento Ink whenever I color with my Copic markers, but this ink also has a wide range of colors.  So often I will stamp with dye ink and get an image that is well- not as crisp as I would like it to be.  Not the case with these inks.  I also can find them in a dew drop size, so I am not spending a fortune stocking up (especially with my discounts at JoAnn's).

This stamp set is so awesome.  There is also a coordinating die that I am waiting for.  I have yet to see it in stock-it is taking forever!
The stamps come in an array of vintage images with words and a couple of choices for the card itself.  There are plenty of possibilities.

I have also been dying a lot of my own wrinkle ribbon.  Super easy to make and I use all of my Distress Ink to color them.  I just wish Tim Holtz made a teal distress ink.  I guess I will just have to go out and purchase some Glimmer Mist (which also works great for coloring your ribbon).

Hope you can find some uses for the buttons in your stash as home!
