Craft Stamper Take it, Make it February Inspiration . . .

Stopping by with my inspiration project for
and the theme
You can find all the details on the main blog here.

" Buttons and Doodahs "
I combined a few things that I love to create my buttons and doodahs ~
Air dry clay, 
Crafters Workshop Stencil, 
 Dina Wakley One for the Gals Stamp Set
 { I used the words }, 
My Minds Eye yummy papers
 and
 . . . . Coffee to paint with  . . .
 they smell heavenly even after having a spray off varnish!
Quick easy project, just roll out the clay and pop the stencil on top before rolling over it again. 
Take your shape cutters and cut to your hearts content before leaving them overnight to dry.
 I love painting with coffee, just add a little or more water to achieve different shades, it dries real quick allowing you to apply more layers.
A quick spray of Gloss Varnish and all that`s left to do is embellish with a word and create a few tags.
You can gift them or use them on your artwork, cards, journals, layouts . . . or just keep them to look at, lol!
I`ve used one of my hearts already on a painting, here`s a sneaky peek . . .
 I hope I have inspired you to have a go.
Be sure and check out the rest of the teams fabulous creations on the main blog here.

Linking up to the lovely people over at Unity Stamp Co. for Friends with Flair ~ script stamp on the tags which is my go to stamp to add a little interest.
 
Have a great weekend
Big hugs
