a playing card challenge

SORRY! This project has been removed for publication.

Did you see the challenge up at Moxie Fab World? It’s a playing card challenge! I am jumping up and down with excitement!! I happen to know of a perfect stamp set for this challenge. *big smile* Its from Mint Motif and its called, “What a Card!”

(ok, honestly, I might also be jumping up and down because I was out in front of a trend! *another big smile* let’s face it, that doesn’t happen often!)

What A Card! - MORE ON ORDER - CLICK RESTOCK NOTIFY

This set is all about card playing! So, I thought I would share a project with you today using it.

I have been stamping on wood buttons a lot lately. It’s a great way to make a very custom embellishment. Palette ink was used to stamp on these. It’s a super formula meant to work on many surfaces. The buttons I picked up in the LA Fashion District back during the bonus CHA-W adventure. :) The supply is getting low, so I will have to check out the local fabric stores here and see what is available.

Have fun with the challenge, the deadline is October 3. thanks for stopping by!

Kim, this is gorgeous! I love how your sets are so basic and your projects make me think of ways to use them that I never would have thought of.
I found some wooden buttons at the Dollar Store but they aren't nearly so nice.
