BSS IDEA - Autumn

Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Idea.

Hi Friends, well the rain and cooler temps sure brought out the
colors of Fall and lots of falling leaves this past week.
We took a ride on Sunday to see the changing colors of
the trees and they are just spectacular.

So this weeks card features an Autumn/ Thanksgiving theme today.

Stamp - Stampingbella - Casey has a cornucopia (eb416)
All dies used (Oval, scalloped oval, circles and leaves
are Spellbinders.
Stem of pumpkin is hand drawn and cut and run through a crimper
Raffia bow 
colored with Copics

To make the card, I used two orange circles overlapped and an oval
in the middle.  Popped up the image matted on a black scalloped oval
attached to the orange oval in the middle of the overlapped circles.

To make the back of the card, I did the same thing with all white cardstock
scored about a half inch from the top adhered a line of adhesive tape
and attached the two pieces on the score line.

Happy Fall Ya'll.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great day. Until later......

Autumn's Glory

Good Sunday friends. Finally feeling better today for the first time in a few days. 
 I think I am on the other side of this cold thank goodness.

I bought this beautiful stamp at a stamp show here in August.
And colored it up right away, I could not wait to use these awesome
rich Fall colors, then I set it aside and didin't make a card with it.

Finally stole a few minutes to do just that.

Image - Just for Fun Stamps
Paper is from a old Fall stack
Square 4 inch paper doily
Gingham bow
Colored with Copic Markers
Sprayed with Perfect Pearls (Gold) mixed with water
in a mini mister.
This makes such a lovely glow on the leaves, but
the camera doesn't pick it up.
Maybe if you click to enlarge.

That's it for me today, need to put up decoration for 
Halloween, behind because of this cold!!

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great day.  Until later..........

Goodnight Moon

Still fighting a cold, but spent some time in my craft room today.  

When my Granddaughter was little, she was fascinated with the moon.
We always had to say Goodnight moon before she went to bed and look out
the window to see if we could see it.  So.....when I was this wonderful die
I just had to have it.  This card will be mailed out to college soon so
she knows I am thinking of her.

Dies - Moon - Tattered Lace
Oval - Darice
Rectangle - Spellbinders
Paper is old DCWV
Card is 61/2 x 5 inches Cream Card Stock
Gold paper behind the rectangle

That's it, kept it simple, not bling, wanted the moon
to shine on its own!

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a good day.  Until later..........
