Srsly Stoked Spilled Buttons & Brads


Kate Hadfield Designs and Kim Jensen Designs collaborated together at The Lilypad and made a great set called Srsly Stoked. This is aimed at teens (and all the cool dudes) and has a grungy style. Currently it is on offer at half price and is an amazing deal.

In the Collaboration kit you get a pack of papers and elements from Kim Jensen Designs

And you get a pack of elements from Kate Hadfield Designs. This is also available in the Kate Hadfield store as black & white stamps.

There is also a cool alphabet Kate designed called Graffiti which complements the kit.

Using this whole kit I have made a collection of cards which I will be showing you over the next few days whilst the kit is on special offer.


My card has been made by creating a digital card in a graphics programme. I really liked the textured effect on this green and orange paper and how it went diagonally.

In Kim's elements pack there is a motif which is like you have spilled a load of brads and buttons on your desk (we have all done that I am sure). As it is diagonal I played about with positioning it along the same paper diagonal, resizing until I was happy with it.

The sentiment has been made using the Graffiti alphabet. I just played about with the positioning of the letters until I was happy with it. It is quite forgiving due to the style so you don't have to worry about having perfect alignment. 

Once I was happy with my overall layout this was then printed onto glossy photo paper. I really find this makes the colours pop and is perfect for this bright bold style of design.

I added some real buttons and brads to the image so it added some dimension to it. This was then added to a silver card blank

I am not normally all that great with cards for men but found this kit was particularly fun to use. I had intended to do 2 or 3 cards and ended up making 6 so that is really good going for me

Over at Kate Hadfield Designs there is lots going on. Kate is really generous with her freebies which are readily available. If you sign up to the newsletter you get access to an extra subscriber area the Doodle Den where there are loads more freebies. There is a gallery full of projects by the Creative Team and customers and so much inspiration for crafters and teachers. I would highly recommend you pop over there and join in the fun.
