Bio.
I have been drawing since a child and studied graphics at College many years ago, I now work as a Medical photographer part time but my love was always drawing. I started cardmaking about 4yrs ago when I bought my daughter a cardmaking kit which we did together, but I’m afraid I got the bug! My daughter preferred scrapbooking. I then started looking online at other blogs and this then became my passion and I loved sharing my cards with like-minded people.
I love stamping and loved finding images, but sometimes I could not find what I wanted so I started to draw myself.
This then has become my second addiction and I have never looked back, I love thinking of new images, and its just fabulous to see others take them and make them into beautiful works of art. Long may it continue!


The design team has come up with some great
 inspiration for this challenge.

  So, scurry on over to the
 House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge Blog
and check them out, then get busy and enter a card of your own.

BSS IDEA - Four Layer Cake

Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Idea.

Another Monday morning.  

This week we are talking CAKE!  a FOUR LAYER cake.

This wonderful die makes a card shaped like a cakluded
in the set (9 all together)..  Fun design.  Here is what e you
decide how to decorate it with the additional dies incI did.






Die - Sizzix - Cake Fold Its (662738)
Stamp - inside sentiment -Penny Black-Sentiment Collection (30-3550)
White card stock - base
Aqua card stock - frosting
Used a swirl embossing folder from Cuttlebug
White Glitter paper - Frosting between layers 
Candles (dies included) My Favorite Things-
Hearts and Strips 6x6 Paper Pack
Yellow card stock for flame
Orange Copic to color flame on one side
I cute four of the longer candles and three of
the shorter ones, and trimmed a little off
the bottom of each.
I then adhered the longest ones across the
top leaving a space in between each one
then added the shorter ones in between so it
gives the illusion of depth on the top of the
cake.
Plate - Silver Mirror card stock
Blue stones on cake - Pretty Pink Posh

Fun card to send someone their birthday cake that you
aren't able to be with on their birthday!

Thanks for stopping by today.
Have a great week.
