Women are like buttons…

They hold everything together! When I saw this quote on Willy Anderson’s blog I had to use it. I used the Hello Vintage Girl and Cute as a Button clear stamps from Pink Persimmon to make thes set:

The tags can be used as bookmarks. i love tags because hey are the perfect size to try out colors and techniques. For instance I made the background button stamp by heating up a foam block with a heat gun and pressing it on to a pile of buttons then inked it ip with light pink ink to stamp the background.

These cards can be sent to friends who need a “pick me up” or a bit of support.

I drew the stitching in with the new fine liner nibs from ProMarker, they come 3 to a pack and you just sanp them on top of your fine end of you ProMarkers and they work like a dream!

Here is a look at the products I used from Pink Persimmon.

Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!

  1. Wow What great cards and tags. That sentiment is so very thru. Love your background and soft colors. Still haven’t got those blocks to try it. One day I’ll find them and the nail polish. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Hi Lindsay….I love these and the quote is perfect. Where did you find the fabric measuring tape?

    Have a great day!


  4. Dear Lyndsay, I saw the cards you made with the pink persimmon stamps Hello Vintage Girl and Style girl, and I was wondering, I don’t think that this company is in business anymore and I really like these stamps. I was wondering is it inappropriate for me to ask if you could send me a couple of these images stamped in archival ink jet black. Also from that same company they had a stamp set called sassy girl, and she was really stunning as well did you get that stamp set too and could I get a stamped image of that girl too. I have looked everywhere including ebay and I cannot find them anywhere.
    Thanks for your time,
