NEW Chipboard Buttons with Doris Sander

To create my pumpkins, I first freehand cut the shapes from cardstock. Next I fingerpainted the pumpkin ridges then stitched along them once the paint was dry. The leaves I freehand cut too and bent up the tips a bit to give them more substance. I finished them off with seam binding bows and cute new Halloween chipboard buttons.

Supplies: JBS Coredinations Cardstock, JBS Ranger Paint - Chicken Feed, Family Tree Patterned Paper, Halloween Chipboard Buttons, Seam Binding Tape

Happy Halloween! Merry Christmas! and Happy Valentine's Day! :)

The base of my tree is a piece of chipboard loosely cut into the shape of a Christmas tree. Basically, it is three triangles stacked on top of each other. I covered this base with rows of one inch circles punched from patterned paper and cardstock and bent slightly. I stitched across the three sections of the tree and then lightly painted the bottom edges of the circles. My little tree is decorated with lots of happy buttons.

Suppies: JBS Coredination Cardstock, JBS Ranger Paint - Malted Milk, Brown Sugar and Chili Powder, Family Tree Patterned Paper, Christmas Chipboard Buttons, Red Pearl Buttons, Yellow Vintage Style Sew-On Buttons

After painting my chipboard star and allowing the paint to dry, I put on a coat of Helmar Professional Glue for the nice glossy shine you see.

And a quick and easy Valentine's Day display. :)
