Hi Everyone! This is Holly with an altered item for you today.
It all starts with a button pin, and I found a bunch at the Thrift Store and a couple in my junk drawer.
I chose the 'Believe' stamp from the Textured Holiday Words set and stamped it using a Jet Black Archival Ink Pad. I used a variety of sheets of paper from the Simple Stories 25 Days of Christmas paper pad {Ed. Note: Sorry!  This paper is now sold out, but we have lots of other beautiful papers!} to cover the button pin and then make the layers behind it. Spellbinders Classic Scallop Circles created the layers and cut out the center circles to access the pin back.
This pin uses Spellbinders Stars and 'Rejoice' from the Rejoice and Hallelujah stamp set, with a small Flourish added. 'Rejoice' was stamped with a Sepia Archival Ink Pad and the edges were sponged with Distress Inks. Gold glitter was mixed into Diamond Glaze and applied to the star and around the button base.
These pins are like potato chips- you can't have just one. Make some for friends too.
Thanks for looking!
