The Stamp Man challenge - Anything by Tim

But first here is a snapshot of the yummies our retreat friends will be sampling this weekend.

Its been a busy old week so here is my sample for The Stamp Man challenge which is also combined with part of workshop 1 of the retreat - making buttons.

Inspired by last years Button tin project in Craft stamper Michelle and I have added our own twist and had lots of fun with it.

Shrink plastic buttons are such fun! We used nesties to die cut then brilliance inks to stamp and edge before shrinking - dont forget to punch the holes before shrinking!

These are chipboard buttons die cut from Tims sewing room die - the first one is stamped in brushed corderoy then glazed with 2 coats of clear embossing powder - the second has 3 coats of blue embossing powder then is stamped into with a stamp from the TH Haberdashery plate of stamps by Tim - These are going to be so well used this weekend! Finished off by sewing the buttons onto the freebie download from craft stampers website, printed in grey scale and adjusted slightly to fit the embelishment box which I will show you fully on Monday after the retreat.
The Stamp Man has a fabulous range of Tims Goodies if you have a few pennies to spare and with free p&p over £10 you can't go wrong! Do stop by the challenge and see what fabulous projects the DT have come up with.
See you after the weekend!
