(CAS)E this Sketch | Challenge #72

I received Papertrey Ink's new Button Stacks dies last week and I've been itching to play with them. Specifically, I wanted to try covering them with clear embossing powder for a shiny look. This week's CAS(E) this Sketch challenge had me pulling out these dies to create three shiny buttons. Here is the sketch:


And here is my take. I die cut the layered buttons from Papertrey Ink's Limeade Ice, Melon Berry, and Harvest Gold cardstock. After I adhered the layers together, I covered the button with VersaMark, then coated it with clear embossing powder. After I heat set the button, I repeated the embossing process for extra shine. I love, love, love this look! Aren't the buttons adorable? I already have the Bitty Button Stacks dies on my wish list... I'm just waiting for them to be restocked! I also used green and pink buttons from Studio Calico, enamel dots from My Mind's Eye, and puffy hearts from Twine & Ink to embellish the rest of my circles.



That's it for me today! Have a wonderful weekend. :)
