PPA62 Button, Button

Stampin up pals paper arts silhouette sentiments
Are you a glutton for buttons?  I love the pop of dimension and style they instantly add to any project.  This week's Pals Paper Arts Challenge (PPA62) is to use a button on a papercrafting project . . . so easy.  I even made two cards for you today!

TOP NOTE SQUARED.  I previously shared a video tutorial on the Rock and Roll technique and included a tip on squaring up the Stampin' Up! Top Note Die.  To make life easier for those of you who are seriously time challenged and want to see it again or for the first time, I put together a 1 Minute to "WOW!" Video Tutorial with an abbreviated version of the top note "trick."



STAMPIN' PRETTY TIP:  The No Slide Ribbon technique keeps that delicious snippet of Early Espresso 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon in place.  Click here for a video tutorial explaining how.

BONUS!  HANG ON TO THE BRACKETS!  There's a big difference between using product (which I do with gusto) and wasting products (which I try very hard to avoid).  Those curvy little ends we just clipped off the Top Note die-cut are naturals for brackets in this "hi" 4 x 4 card.
