BSS Monday Idea - Cjhopped front card

Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Monday Idea.

This weeks card is a chopped front card.


Front of card


Closeup of flower


Card is opened


Card base is 41/4x51/2 inches yellow card stock
Dies:  Flower - Spellbinder;s Blooms 3 (S2-046)
Flourish - Fanciful Flourish -Cherry Lynn Designs (B117)
Embossing Folder -Spellbinders M-Bossabilities (ES-011)
Designer paper is Graphic 45 - Raining Cats and Dogs Collection
Sentiment stamp is old.

To make the card
Using your paper trimmer, remove 31/4 inches down from the top
on the front, onthe fold and then cut across the front of the card.  This will leave
a 2 1/4 inch piece a the bottom of the card for closing the card.
Make a 4x5 1/4  inch white mat and run it through the embossing folder of your
choice and adhere to the inside of the card.  Stamp or die cut, or use boughten  flowers, add leaves
or flourish.  Use a circle die or punch that will accommodate your flower
and punch a half circle in the front of the card where you want to place your
flower.  Adhere flowers making sure you position the flower in the half circle
so the card will close.  Add sentiment.

Hope you have a chance to try this technique.

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

BSS MONDAY IDEA - Snow and more Snow


WELCOME TO THE BUFFALO STAMPS AND STUFF MONDAY IDEA. 

Hope everyone was able to dig out and stay warm these past few days.
This has been some winter!  I know we are all looking forward to
Spring this year, but seems like it is a ways off yet.

This week's card is of a beautiful stamp I purchased at BSS last week of
a snowy scene of a cabin the the woods.


Remind you of our snowy weather this winter?

Click to enlarge to see the sparkly snow.


Base card is 5x7 inches white card stock
Layers are navy and forest green with white between each layer.
Tabs are made from a strip of the green card stock with rounded
corners, or you can leave them square.
Stamp is from Impression Obsession (J7763)
Deer Trio die is Memory Box (98166)
I used a snow writer from DecoArt to add snow texture to
the trees and ground snow.  Then while still wet, added
white glitter.
Colored with Copic Markers

Hoping for a warm up this week and some melting, running out of 
places to put the white stuff.

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

Wise Kitty

Hello friends.  It is downright freezing here.  Ran some errands today and stopped in at my favorite stamp store for some goodies.  Going to be below zero with the wind chill factor for the next few days.

Made this card with a new stamp I purchased at Stampendous.  I have this stamp from years ago, but it is smaller and the scene includes another book on the table with a little bird sitting on it.  I always loved this stamp and when I saw the kitty up closer, just had to have it.






Stamp - Stampendous, inside sentiment (Whipper Snapper) and sentiment on front (Stampa Rosa) are old. stamps.
Cream base card, light blue textured card stock
Small glass hearts
Bow die is Tim Holtz Alterations by Sizzix
Embossing folder frame is also by Sizzix
sponged with Vintage Photo distress ink around edges
Colored with Copics

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