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!


Many thanks to our generous Sponsors for their continued support.

I am offering a third prize for one lucky winner.

BSS IDEA - PAPER PIECED HAPPY BIRTHDAY

WELCOME TO THE BUFFALO STAMPS AND STUFF IDEA.

Welcome back to another BSS IDEA.
We are in for some HOT days this week, so crank up
the AC or Fan and stay inside and create!

This week's card is a word stamp and I decided to
paper piece the words VERY HAPPY.



Stamp - Stampendous - Great Big Happy (CRW199)
Papers - Kraft and Royal Blue card stock, designer paper
BoBunny Serendipity Aviary
White embossing powder

Base card is 51/2 by 12 inchs Royal Blue card stock, tent fold.
Designer paper mat is 51/4x 53/4 inches
I stamped and embossed the word stamp with white
embossing powder.
I stamped the stamp again onto the designer paper and also
embossed with white EP.
I cut out the words Very Happy from the designer paper
and glued them on the Royal Blue card stock I had
stamped and embossed in white EP.
Then, I cut around the image on the Royal Blue
Paper and popped it up with pop dots and adhered
it to the card.
I cut a frame that would fit around the image
from Kraft paper using spellbinders rectangle dies,
and slid it in around the image and glued it in place.

I was looking forward to coloring this image up, but then
got this idea and I am glad I did, I like how it turned out.
Hope you do too.  Lots of possibilities using different
papers, like fun kids cards and guy cards.

That's it for me this week.
Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a good day. Until later.....

BSS IDEA - Pinata Treat Holders


Another week already!  Hope everyone had a nice 4th of July.
A person that lives across the street from us whom I never met, shoots
off fire crackers like you go to see at a park!  Well our poor dog
is scared to death of them and has been traumatized so badly
these past few day, poor thing...and it's not over yet.  Last night
the boom was so loud at 11:30 pm it shook the house and scared me
too!  What is wrong with people.

Have a cute little Pinata Treat Holder to show you.








Die - Pinata Treat Box - Sizzix-662772
Assorted ribbon, star trim, and self stick flat beads
I used Skittles to fill them.

This is a die set.  It is kinda fussy to put together, but this is what I
learned:
Use a low temp glue gun
Cut two of each piece of fringe trim for each box
Use a heavy weight card stock for the body.
I used card stock for the fringe, but I am thinking
that text weight might be better, will have to try it.

That's it for me this week.
Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day, Until later....
