BSS MONDAY IDEA - Peaceful Lake Scene

Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Monday Idea.  

This week, the idea is to color up a scene

I found this stamp recently at Buffalo Stamps and Stuff by Sheena (Sheena Douglas).
 This beautiful Scene was created by using only the two stamps that came in the set,
 the mountains and the boats.  Depending on where you place the dies, the distance creates
the lake.


Inside


Base card is 5x7 inches cream card stock
Embossing folder - Chevron 5x7 by Darice
Stamp set- Sheena  Peaceful Lake - Crafters Companion (SD-SSPeaceEZ)
The set also includes two sentiment stamps.
Colored with Copic Markers
Sprayed with a high gloss finish to prevent fading, and to
add to the photo look.
Twine bow in three colors.
The inside sentiment is an old Hero Arts Set.

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

RELAX

Hi friends.  We are off to a birthday celebration at the ball park today.  One of our life-long friends is having a birthday and his daughter is taking a group of friends to a baseball game this afternoon.
Thankfully, the humidity is lower today and the temps are down, so should be fun.

Here is the card I made for his birthday.

You just place it on the fold of any size insert and cut. Decorate
the background and foreground of the insert.  So cute!
I used cloud paper from a summer stack, fence is Cheery Lyn Designs
Glasses are a sticker by Jolee'.  I hand cute the flip-flops.
Water is glitter paper run through a water design embossing folder.
Sand is a brown ribbed paper I had in my stash.  White embossing
powder on the edge of the water.

OK gotta run and get ready.

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