Like my layered button? Well it is handmade. Of course I don't have any embellishments to match the new In Colors so I figured I would make my own! Here is a step-by-step to show you how I made it.
I first punched holes with my double circle punch so I could go in with my 3/4" circle punch with correct placement.
Then I laid them on my VersaMark pad and dipped them into clear embossing powder. I ended up layering the powder 3-4 times to make it a little thicker. You could also use or Glassy Glaze powder or Ultra Thick Embossing Powder.
To hold them while I dipped, I used my paper piercer, easy to use the heat gun that way too. The bottom button is a piece of 1-inch circle punch from the Kiwi patterned paper in the NEW Bella Rosa DP. I covered it with embossing powder with no hole punches. What a fun (and less bulky) way to layer buttons - they really look like epoxy stickers you buy at the store. I got the idea for this when I was shopping at Target yesterday...realizing I could make my own since I already had all the supplies! I saved $
