November Inspiration by Judy

Hello everyone!
It's Judy here sharing my inspiration for this month!

I've been having a lot of fun playing with
altered letters, so I decided to use
to create one that would be fitting for any little girl!

I started by coloring the image with pencils
and fussy cutting. Then I painted the backside
of the 9 1/2 inch wood letter.

Next I covered the front side of the letter
with a coordinating DP from Hot Off the Press
with decoupage medium.
I also chose a set of 3-D paper tole from Hot off the Press
to use as embellishments.

To finish I added some gems to Cinderella's crown
and added some punched butterflies
that were embellished with some rub-ons.

Be sure a visit the
and check out all the products available.

Victoria's November Inspiration Post using Santa Having Cocoa

Hello everyone! It hope that your having a lovely day/evening. It's Victoria here I'm here to share my inspiration post for this month. I've decided to get into the Christmas spirit and I've create a Christmas Card using Santa Having Cocoa. There are some new Christmas digital stamps you can find them at the Cute As A Button Store.

I've coloured Santa with Spectrum Noir Markers and Pencils. To create the background I've used light blue and green card. Which I've added die cut stars to create patterned paper. The sentiment is a digital stamp made by Tracy Wray which I've added foam pads to. Then to finish of I've added die cut Holly by Creative Expression and a flower punch that I've layered up and added a yellow gem to the middle to create a poinsettia flower.

There is currently a challenge going on at the Cute As A Button Challenge Blog and a Progressive Challenge on the Cute As A Button Facebook Group. We'd love to see you come and join in the fun.

Thank you for taking the time to read my post today.

Happy crafting everyone.

Margaret's inspiration post for November

I am a couple days early posting my Inspiration for November.

This month I have made a mixed media journal page (and a mess)

I covered my page with Gesso Primer then painted it with green and blue Ecoline Brush Pens.
Sprayed with water and tipped up and down to mix the paints.
Used moulding paste through clouds stencil.  I thought that they would stay white but they became blue after a while.
Used distress ink and gel pen through mini climbing vine stencil.
Stamped grass and flowers and butterflies from Posh Impressions stamp-a-scene set.
Printed girl from Cute as a Button precoloured IMG120 Love conquers all, cut out and layered girl on top.   Printed the sentiment from the set a bit bigger, cut out and sponged with distress ink and layered on top.
Added white flowers with rhinestones.

I hope you will follow this showcase blog and see the lovely work every few days by the design team.

Karen's Theatrical Inspiration

Being a stage actress one of my favorite things is the comedy tragedy masks...I saw this fun image (TWO CHOICES) and had to use it for my inspiration piece this month.  I have a silhouette machine so, from the Silhouette store, I purchased this fun DRAMA THEATER STAGE set by Samantha Walker.

I chose to go with black, burgundies and golds.  Once I cut the shapes and put it all together I added my image...How?  Well...I colored the image first, then scanned the colored image into my computer.  Once I scanned it into my computer I used my print program and lightened it so that the sentiment would show up more clearly.  I then cut it all out and added it behind the stage.  I then used pop dots to the stage to add some fun dimension.  Once it was all put together I added the gems around the entire thing to frame it.  Then sprayed with Glimmer Mist.

Thanks for looking!
