Buttons & Pumpkins

It's Week 2 of our current Beary Sweet Challenge, "Happy Fall Y'All" and the DT challenge this week was to add buttons to our Happy Fall projects. 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.

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