Dreamweaver and Woodware UK: Christmas in August...the Tradition Continues, Day Three

Welcome to the annual Dreamweaver and Woodware Christmas in August extravaganza week! Monday through Saturday we will be knocking your Christmas stockings off with fun and inspirational ideas for the upcoming holidays. All that you need to do is hop back and forth across the "pond" on each day, oohing and aaahhhing as you go, and leaving us plenty of holiday love. In return, you'll be entered to randomly win one prize package for a UK commenter, and a second prize package for a US commenter, featuring products distributed in the UK by Woodware...including Dreamweaver and Stampendous!

Prize includes four stencils, one die, and two stamps, selection may vary.
Here's my creation for today's post:

Sometimes when you are in the middle of a creative brainstorm (and that's putting it nicely!), you feel the need to throw everything on the card! And sometimes it actually works! For this card, I used Dreamweaver Regular Embossing Paste with the Oval Ornament stencil, and while still wet, I pressed a generous handful of bright colored buttons into the surface. I sprinkled the in-between spaces and the top of the ornament with Stampendous Multi Fine Crystal Glitter for sparkle. (The fun part was swiping away the extra glitter from the buttons!) I added peppermint striped baker's twine to the top, and layered the kraft panel onto a kraft card and fun paper. A sweet little Stampendous sentiment stamped in red was the finishing touch!

Now's the time for you to leave a comment and move on to the next designer for today:

Very clever, I wouldn't have tried that with the paste, you are still my hero!

A lovely idea to use up some of the many buttons we crafters collect!

What a cute idea - I wouldn't have thought of pressing buttons into it like that - it's great.

So pretty! Love how the ornament stands out against the kraft!

So sweet Pam! The buttons give it such a homey feel (no, not homely!) I am amazed at how well you got those buttons to fit in there!
