Summertime Kites Button Boutique

Hello DeNami friends, Lisa E. here with my August Button Boutique projects! As our lazy days of summer are edging their way toward fall, I'm bringing you one last splash of happy summer colors! I've taken these splendid DeNami products...

and turned them into this sweet little project! 

I am in love with the way my pin cushion turned out! This whimsical kite will find it's place in my little art studio. My colors were chosen specifically to match my other decorations there! Some might think of red and green as Christmas colors, but they also make the prettiest little summer creations! I drew out my own pattern and fashioned the kite from floral fabric and muslin. Before sewing the project together, I stamped my images onto the muslin. The solid leaf sprig and mini open button on one section, along with decorative butterflies and the teeny swiss dot on the other. Once the sewing was complete I embellished with pretty Ruby Red Boutique Buttons

Transforming this idea into a card was easy.
I used the cute DeNami kite stamp as my jumping off point!

This kite is so versatile. You can easily paper piece it or simply color in the sections. I chose to color two sections and add some polka dots with my marker to the other two. To mimic the floral fabric I used the rosebud trio stamp, nestled it into the grass border and used buttons as the blooms! The sweet polka dot butterfly found a perfect spot here as well. Using a tag, my sentiment trails along the tail of the kite.

If you don't sew, this project could easily be made from cardstock, mat board or even wood.  Wouldn't it be a cute decoration for a nursery or child's room! You could even go larger and make one for your front door! 

I hope you've enjoyed my bit of whimsy today. Thanks for taking a peek!
